If you’re looking for ways to make your kitchen more functional, one of the best additions you can make is adding a breakfast nook. Particularly for those without a traditional dining room, a breakfast nook can be a fantastic addition to help improve the utility of your kitchen, while also addressing the need for seating that you had! However, there are far more benefits to adding a breakfast nook beyond just making your kitchen more functional! Keep reading below to learn more about why you may want to consider installing a breakfast nook in your home’s kitchen!
The first, and most important, benefit that building a breakfast nook provides, is certainly the seating space. The main reason that homeowners consider building a nook is that they don’t have anywhere to eat their meals, which makes the seating area a necessity. If you’re tired of eating your meals standing in your kitchen or sitting on the couch!
When it comes to the utility of a breakfast nook, most homeowners imagine that the main utility of the space is as a seating area. However, they neglect to consider the fact that their breakfast nook can also function as a extra counter space to help you meal prep while cooking. If you’re finding yourself with less counter space than you need, a breakfast nook can help to address those issues.
Another reason homeowners love breakfast nooks is that they lend themselves well to an open design. one popular way to open up your home is to create a nook by knocking down a wall between your kitchen and an adjacent room like your living room to create an open design. This will not only make your kitchen more accessible, but will help to make your entire home feel more expansive. Just be sure that your second story is structurally sound before you begin removing walls.
Lastly, a breakfast nook is not only good for eating meals, but also for connecting with your family. It provides you with a space to do paperwork, allowing your kids to be in the kitchen to ask you questions on their homework while you cook, or for your spouse to sit down and make a couple of phone calls in the morning. There are a variety of ways you can use your breakfast nook, but it will certainly not be ignored!
