Breakfast nook. Dining nook.
There's few things that are more cozy than a breakfast nook. The sense of intimacy, the informal ambience, it's no wonder this design is such a popular addition to your home! Owing to their traditionally smaller size, the layout possibilities offer more flexibility. Be sure to think about bench storage within your nook as well. We can be very creative! Whether your space would include a
dining nook in another room, or a snug little space next to the coffee machine, Crown Point can create the ideal cabinetry for your breakfast nook design!
Designing a breakfast nook
If you are contemplating an available space for your breakfast or dining nook, but aren't sure about making it fit, here are a few general guidelines:
- A minimum place setting is 24" wide, ideal is 30". For example, if you'd like to seat four individuals with an ideal layout, your table would be 60" wide (assuming two to a side).
- Table depth (or length) minimum dimension is 42", assuming use of both sides. If there will be seating on only one side, 21" is recommended as a minimum.
- For bench seating, the depth can be from 17.5" - 20". This measurement would be from the front edge of the seat to the upright section of the back. For example, to accommodate seating on both sides of a 42" long table, at minimum you could calculate 17.5 + 42 + 17.5 = 77 as space required. Note this dimension does not include the depth of seat backs. Those can vary depending on available space.
Once again, those above are general guidelines. Crown Point can custom make your breakfast nook to fit your space and budget! Questions? Contact one of our designers today!
