The kitchen is the heart of the house, and inevitably you find the family gathering around the kitchen island for a quick bite in the morning or a lovely meal at night. Plan in advance for the seating space that you will need to accommodate you at the island. Many modern islands come with a design that places the countertop for food and drinks a tad higher than the one used for preparing and serving meals. This also allows you to choose a wider range of kitchen bar stools or chairs. Also make sure you take into account the required knee clearance space for sitting comfortably at the island.
Next, choose a table. Remember, a breakfast nook is supposed to be small and quaint, so you won’t need a table rivaling the size of your dining room set-up. Generally a nook is not a place for entertaining guests, so a small café table should suffice. Arrange two or three small chairs around the table opposite the window set. If you do not have a window seat, you may choose to add more chairs. However, remember that a breakfast nook can also be one-sided.
A brick backsplash is a relatively simple detail and tends to have an industrial feel. So to make it integrate beautifully into the whole décor you can also use industrial pendant lights or numerous other small details that would match this style. The similarities can also relate to color, texture and pattern so there are also other possibilities.
A nook is a cozy space designed to provide an intimate meal space for just two or four people. Generally a breakfast nook is tucked away in the corner of a kitchen or within a bay window. If possible, start by adding a padded window seat. This provides you with a great opportunity to show some personality and add some color to your space with an interesting fabric pattern and a few charming pillows.
Reclaimed wood is all the buzz lately. What is reclaimed wood? It’s simply wood that has been salvaged from older homes and barns that are about to be, or have been, slated for demolition. Reclaimed wood, simply put, is a smart and attractive option. Reclaimed offers a look and feel that the newer butcher blocks simply can’t. Reclaimed wood that was used from older trees is much sturdier than the newer counterparts made from younger trees. When purchasing reclaimed wood for your kitchen you are, in effect, doing wonders for the environment. If you are concerned about the environment, want a “greener” feel to your kitchen and love the casual elegance that wood has to offer, you should see how you can obtain reclaimed wood products near you.
