It’s a multi-purpose living space as not only small meals eating here but also games, cards, puzzles and just relaxing talk can be showcased in the nook. With this in mind, decorate your nook to be very homey and comfortable.
A consol table, such as this two-legged high-top, saves space in small areas because it’s mounted to the wall. The generous doorway makes the nook feel like part of the kitchen. This can be built or take an existing table and take off two of the legs before attaching to window frame.
Create a breakfast nook under multi-pane casement windows with drawers under the seating for storing items like bulky pans and serving dished. A collage of throw pillows enhances comfort.
