Breakfast Nook: Create Your Own DIY Guide

May 19, 2020

If you are purchasing a new home or renovating your existing one, you may be yearning to set up a small but soy breakfast nook, where you or your entire family can enjoy a little peace and quiet before heading out to work. Read more about creating a breakfast nook.

A recent survey from the NDP Group found that although everyone knows that breakfast is important, about 31 million Americans don’t have breakfast at all. If you are a busy urbanite who barely has time to get a healthy lunch on a typical work day, why not build a small but appealing breakfast room that is so appealing you won’t be able to resist having a steaming cup of Java as soon as you wake up? 

Create an Oasis of Peace

Use the space closest to your terrace of garden for your nook; this will ensure it is light-filled. Even if you live in a high rise and you don’t have a garden, positioning this room by the window will afford you a beautiful view. Bring natural elements into your city apartment, using plants like peace lilies, elephant ears, and vines to add a tranquil vibe to your space. If renovations are in order, try to use natural, sustainable materials such as bamboo or reclaimed wood for a homey yet funky vibe that is all the rage in contemporary design. 

Include a Coffee and Tea Corner

If you are a busy city dweller, chances are, you don’t want to waste time in the morning looking for various pieces of equipment, mugs, and tools to make your favorite cup of coffee or tea. Your breakfast space should ideally have shelves or a storage unit to keep items like home brewers, filters, coffee pods, and the like. Many people think that coffee makers take up too much space, but clever designers have dreamed up smaller brewing equipment.

Often, brewing machines are so cool looking they become a key designer piece that catches visitors’ attention. Think of designing a small part of your room around your coffee and tea sets. Hang designer cups and cutlery on wooden or metal shelves, grace the wall with vintage coffee-inspired imagery, and place loose tea behind visible glass drawers so you can see all your blends at an instance.

Embrace Glorious Asymmetry

The old penchant for matching items has gone for good, it seems, both in the world of fashion and interior design. Thus, many interior enthusiasts are looking to introduce a bit of asymmetry into living spaces, through touches such as asymmetric lighting pieces and varied types of seating in lieu of stock sets of dining chairs. If your breakfast space is in a corer, consider building a simple corner banquette you can also use for storage.

This banquette should seat up to three people on the longest side and one to two on the shorter side, making it quite the space saver. For the chairs on the other side of the table, consider mismatched antique, rattan, or velvet seats. This combined with the spacious banquette will make your breakfast corner as appealing in the afternoon and at night as it is in the morning.

If you want to make breakfast a bigger priority, start by considering how to make your small breakfast area more appealing. Plants, designer seating, and gourmet items can add a special touch to your breakfast experience. So, too, can having the equipment you need to make coffee or tea that is as good (or even better than) the fare you might find at your favorite café.
