Making A Cozy Breakfast Nook In Your House
Hot coffee with a newspaper in hand during a relaxing breakfast, this is the ideal. You can achieve this dream by making your own breakfast nook in your house. A breakfast nook is a small space, often enclosed on three sides and located near or off the kitchen, which many people use for casual dining. There are a few considerations you can take into account when making the idea breakfast setting for your family. A breakfast nook shouldn’t be too large, because then you lose that intimacy for which nooks were created. A good size for a breakfast nook for your average family of four is around six to eight feet wide and at least five to seven feet deep. This way each person has enough room, but you really get that great feeling of family togetherness. Any breakfast nook needs a bay window with a bench fitted with comfortable bench cushions that can be used for lounging and sitting during the breakfast meal. Comfort should be the word of the day when choosing the seating. The table should also be just large enough to hold everyone’s food, but not so large that it separates the family. Remember, togetherness is the idea.
A perfect breakfast nook ideally has a window on one side, to let in that glorious morning light from a sunrise. There is no better way to eat breakfast than with your loved ones, bathed in the warm rays of the sun to shake off that early morning chill.
