Create Your Own Banquette
Breakfast nooks can be multi-functional space savers in your home.

Time to relax!

These cozy breakfast nooks offer a casual, intimate place to dine or work. In smaller kitchens where a table and chairs might not fit, a banquette could be the perfect solution to maximize the floor space in the room.

Pick a Cozy Spot

Banquettes work well in an alcove or corner. If you’re going for a nostalgic coffee-shop look, a custom booth with built-in benches on either side of the table will serve up some morning relaxation with your coffee.

Custom breakfast nooks can be painted or stained and designed with detailed molding or simple wood panels. You can get as creative as you want with your design.

A uniquely shaped tabletop or base can add an artistic vibe, and the benches could easily be made to lift open for extra storage.

L-Shaped Breakfast Nooks

An L-shaped corner nook is a great choice for larger spaces and can be loaded with fabulous pillows to liven the space and provide a splash of color. A fixed or freestanding pedestal table works best so no one bangs their legs getting in and out. A movable table makes cleaning a bit easier, and a fixed table can be custom made to size in any material you choose. You can select wood, quartz, granite, or marble to match your color palette.

A basic rule of thumb with a standard 30-inch table is to allow 21″ seating width per person and a seat depth of 18 inches not including cushions.

Other Options

Another less expensive option would be to find a great bench or love seat and place it against a wall or kitchen island. Add a vintage table, a couple of chairs, and some comfortable cushions for an eclectic seating area with a dose of charming character.

If you always want that corner booth in a restaurant. You may love one at home in your own cozy breakfast room. See more breakfast nooks in our idea book on houzz.
