Styling a Cosy Breakfast Nook

 DVH Architects 

A breakfast nook is one of those fantastic gathering places for family. It can be where you meet each morning to prepare for the day or where you come together to end your evenings.

Breakfast nooks offer the chance to design a beautiful but also usable and functional space. They’re a quintessential element in Hamptons-style homes, often framed by large windows letting the natural light flood in.

How you style a breakfast nook depends, of course, on your preferences, but also on the space you have available. 

There are plenty of options, like adding a classic round table that will fit nicely in a more snug space.

You can also do a banquette-style seating area or a rectangular table with bench seating.

A small café-style table works in an area with a limited footprint. Let your seating and furniture options follow the natural lines of the space itself.

Keep window coverings minimal so that you can enjoy morning sunlight with a cup of coffee, and add unique design elements like an eye-catching chandelier or light fixture.
