Small Corner Breakfast Nooks

Updated

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.

Contemporary Breakfast Corner Nook Set

Wade Logan®

Perfect for seating four, this contemporary breakfast corner nook set combines stainless steel chrome elements with a true white Y-design stand and gloss white table top. The corner bench seats are covered in white faux leather and can support up to 800 lbs.

Designer Advice:

The orientation of this breakfast nook bench is not reversible, so make sure your available space allows for a longer left side (70.08”) and a shorter right side (50.39”). Ultra modern in design, this small corner dining set pairs perfectly with gloss flat-panel cabinets and a clean, streamlined design. To keep your home from looking stark and clinical, include subtle colors with accents of more vibrant colors.

Four Piece Corner Dining Set

Corrigan Studio®

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.

Brayden Studio®

Crafted from solid Brazilian pine, this four-piece corner breakfast nook can seat six. Two benches fit together and feature brown upholstered seats. Four back cushions wrap around the seat back and can be repositioned along the back to provide support exactly where it is needed.

The mid-century Modern design of this corner breakfast nook is enhanced by the light pine stain color and dark brown polyester/polyester blend upholstery. The corner nook benches can be used without the backrest if so desired. The seats and back can easily be disassembled and the cushions reupholstered if your decor scheme doesn’t include dark brown.

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.
