Floor Plan Ideas

Floor plans that incorporate the flexibility and convenience of a breakfast room are a top request for new homes. Below are our top 5 most popular breakfast room designs - from efficient and casual to elegant and formal.

Breakfast room design #1

Breakfast rooms are commonly located between the kitchen and great room.

This floor plan design reflects a sweeping curved bay area - a modification to a plan that originally portrayed an angled breakfast room.

This space is perfect for a long table, centered under the hanging light.

 The curved bay design gives this custom home an open, flowing feel.

 And the windows let tons of light into the kitchen and great rooms, for an even more airy effect.

 The original layout is fantastic too, with sharply angled walls creating a completely usable area.

Breakfast room design #2

In this second example, the breakfast room still sits between the kitchen and great room, but an additional wall provides a more distinct look between the rooms.

 

The bay bump-out opens up this breakfast room, allowing for a larger table.

In our third example, this breakfast room was designed with more formal appeal, through features typically seen in a formal dining room: wainscoting, crown molding, vaulted ceiling, and transoms above every window.

 A 13 foot by 12 foot breakfast room is large and versatile. A table could seat eight comfortably in this space.

The breadth and formality of the breakfast room frees up the formal dining room at the front of the home, which can easily be converted into a home office.

A different cabinet and counter top styles and colors were chosen to off-set the table-height island and create a smooth transition from the kitchen to great room.

 

This island allows seating for up to five people.
