Breakfast nooks are the epitome of enjoyable mornings. Whether you’re an early riser enjoying your slow cup of coffee before the rest of the house wakes up or you prefer to sleep in and grab a quick breakfast, breakfast nooks provide the perfect casual kitchen seating area. 

Check out some of our favorite breakfast nooks for inspiration!

Bright and Bold

Because they’re usually a smaller space, breakfast nooks are the perfect spot to experiment with design. Try out a bold paint color, incorporate eye-catching artwork, or keep it more subtle and add some extra seating with some colorful stools. We love the pops of color in this Kiawah breakfast nook.

Make it Cozy

Create a cozier feel in your breakfast nook with throw pillows and a low-hanging pendant light. Pillows are a great way to accessorize a space, as they’re easily interchangeable. The pendant light in this coastal dream home distinguishes this small space from the rest of the kitchen.

Get Creative

Breakfast nooks can be created even without the space to configure a built-in banquette. Create that same cozy, small-setting feel with bench seating. The bench backlit by the high windows in this dreamy Daniel Island kitchen provides an intimate setting, even with a full-sized table.

Keep it Light

We love incorporating natural light! Enjoy the beauty of the outdoors without the heat by incorporating windows in a breakfast nook. We love how the paneling on the walls and ceiling add to the light and airy feel of this waterside oasis breakfast nook.
