35 Breakfast Nook Bench Ideas That Will Cheer Up Your Mornings
by Casey Watkins
If there is one thing in the world that nearly everyone can agree on, it’s a breakfast nook. We can all agree that they are rather a luxury in a home, mostly because if you have a breakfast nook, you likely have a formal dining room as well. We can also agree that breakfast nooks are cozy spaces for everything from morning coffee to afternoon homework sessions. All you need to achieve this space in your home is a table, a bench, and a space in your kitchen to put them. The size of your table usually depends on the size of your kitchen but benches don’t have to be the complicated built-ins you’ll find in many breakfast nooks. Here are 30 ideas for your breakfast nook bench to help you create your new favorite Sunday morning spot.
1. Thrifted Bench and Table Breakfast Nook
Sometimes a breakfast nook really is as simple as a thrifted bench and a table without a home. Just push them into an empty corner or nook in your kitchen, add a pillow and you’re ready to linger with your coffee.
2. Built-in Breakfast Nook
If you truly like the built-in breakfast nook look, go ahead and get out your woodworking skills this weekend. Two simple boxes with cushions on top will fill the corner like they were meant to be there all along.
3. Window Seat Breakfast Nook
Does your kitchen have a window seat? Then you are already halfway there. Find a table that fits perfectly in front of the seat and add some chairs on the other side. You’ll create the easiest breakfast nook ever.
4. Catch the Morning Sun in a Bright Breakfast Nook
Bright kitchens are a real favorite for anyone who spends time in theirs. Connect your windows with a long corner bench to catch all that morning sun in your breakfast nook.
