Your grandmother probably had one. You probably don’t. When and why did breakfast nooks go out of fashion? Has the breakfast bar made them obsolete?
Of course the challenge with most bars is exactly that… everyone faces in the same direction like the old ‘counter lunch’. Isn’t conversation better when we’re looking at each other?
Breakfast nooks aren’t just for breakfast. They’re great for sharing a cuppa when a friend drops by, for relaxing with a book, for doing the household accounts on and, of course, they’re the perfect ‘homework station’.
Below you’ll find a selection of both classical and modern styles to help you to design your perfect ‘breakfast nook’. Do you have a breakfast nook at home? If you do, we’d love to see how they look like!
