Small Corner Breakfast Nooks

Buy the best small corner breakfast nooks selected and recommended by interior designers. By Emily Hilton.

A small corner breakfast nook is the perfect way to start the day. The cozy nature of a breakfast nook is only enhanced by the way it makes the most use of a small corner area. Empty corners are often neglected, and a breakfast nook is a perfect way to create a comfortable and intimate space in your room. Adding cushions can pack a lot of luxury into a corner and give you room to curl up and linger over a second cup of coffee.

Description

Perfect For: A cozy eating area with limited space

What We Like: White and pine color combination

What We Don’t Like: Hard to assemble

This corner breakfast nook set is space-savvy, functional, and nothing short of showstopping. Made of solid pine in a charming two-tone colorway, the set includes four pieces in total. There are two cross-back dining chairs with woven seats, a round pedestal table with a curvy base, along with a matching storage bench. Together, they make a delightful centerpiece in the kitchen. 

Designer Advice

White walls, a beige rug, and a woven chandelier will perfectly complement the casual elegance of this breakfast nook set. You can also bring your own personality to the set with accessories, such as a vase of fresh flowers, a decorative bowl, art prints, and a bunch of different-size throw pillows. 

What Users Say

Description

Perfect For: Daily dining and heavy use

What We Like: Easy to wipe clean

What We Don’t Like: Hard sitting surface

Not So Good For: Modern spaces

Brimming with natural beauty, this corner breakfast nook set is uniformly stained in a rich brown color and purposely distressed for a lived-in feel. While the side bench and table add character with their trestle bases, the star is undeniably the corner bench. It flaunts a high backrest with grooved detailing, X-shaped panels on the sides, and the best part: hidden storage space under the seat. 

Designer Advice

This set is right at home in rustic, Tuscany, Spanish, and mission-style interior design schemes. Think dark flooring, wood beams, and many dark wood accents. We get that the all-wood appearance might look quite uncomfortable. Luckily though, it's nothing a few throw pillows and a soft traditional rug can’t fix. 

What Users Say

Very nice! Great quality! Perfect for our space. We wanted a corner nook for our cabin. This can comfortably seat our family of 4 for dinner or 5 or 6 adults for cards.

Modern Corner Nook Dining Set

Modern Corner Nook Dining Set

Wade Logan®

Description

Perfect For: Large families and additional guests

What We Like: Versatile design

What We Don’t Like: Expensive

This breakfast nook set maintains a casual modern attitude with its simple look and neutral tones. With room for five, the L-shaped bench is firmly padded and comprises a slightly textured, striated linen fabric in gray, brown, and beige. Beautifully complementing it is an MDF pedestal table in light oak with stainless steel accents. Thanks to its self-storing leaf, the table can expand to fit up to eight people. 

Designer Advice

While the lack of color options might be a drawback for some, we find that its mix of neutral colors makes styling with other furnishings super easy. For instance, this set goes great with colorful chairs—such as indigo blue or maybe even yellow—if you want to brighten up the arrangement. Prefer something a bit more laid-back? Line the table with rattan or linen dining chairs and dress up the bench with bright pillows. 

What Users Say

It fits perfectly in my space and was very easy to assemble. Quality is great too!

Corrigan Studio®

Description

The small corner breakfast nook bench comes in three pieces: two short benches and one corner bench. The table weighs a hefty 230 lbs, so it is not easy to move in order to let someone sit on the corner seat.

Designer Advice

The diamond-quilted back benches are upholstered in a dark gray fabric and stand atop gunmetal legs. The table is a combination of black on a gunmetal base. Lighten up the look of this nook by adding whites and color with accessories. Drape a cozy throw over the back of one of the benches and add some patterned cushions that repeat the white and color.

Buying Guide

Whether or not breakfast nooks are practical really depends on your available space as well as personal preferences. If you have plenty of room, a small corner breakfast nook set is a practical solution because it results in a separate seating area that allows your entire household to gather together in the morning.

However, small corner breakfast nook sets aren’t designed to entertain, so you probably won’t be able to use them for larger meals. They especially wouldn’t be a practical solution if you’re already a bit tight on space.

A small corner breakfast nook set is an ideal space to sip your coffee and read the news each morning. To determine how big your breakfast nook should be, consider your kitchen’s size and the number of people who will use the nook regularly.

A small breakfast nook should measure about 5’ x 5’. Any smaller than this, and the space will feel cramped. Allow for 30” for each adult that sits in the nook and slightly less for children. A breakfast nook measuring 7’ x 7’ is a safe size for most nook sets; however, if your furniture is bigger, opt for around 7’ by 10’.  

The number of pieces in a breakfast nook set will vary according to your chosen set. However, while some sets offer more nook space and additional seating, the standard number of pieces in most sets is three.
