Two crystal pendant lights - hanging from the second story ceiling - demonstrate the breakfast table location.  Just past the drop zone / mud room combination, a second staircase leads to kids' bedrooms.

Sun Room Style Breakfast Nook

The breakfast nook is immersed in natural light and surrounded by tranquil views.

The rectangle shaped room and round hanging light (with a leaf pattern that evokes natural surroundings) invite a square or round breakfast table.

Built-In Breakfast Room Design Ideas: 

A built-in window bench will add seating and discrete storage to your breakfast room.

A breakfast room bench is perfect for storing holiday themed items - from table clothes and placemats to throws and pillows.

The location of this breakfast room - beside the kitchen, near the great room, and with a French door to the back yard - makes it an ideal place to store games, kids toys, and outdoor items

Cafe Breakfast Room Design Ideas:

Are your mornings dedicated to a quick cup of coffee and small bite to eat, on the way out the door?

This cafe style breakfast room is the perfect place to add an espresso maker and bistro table.

Top it off with a piece of retro art, placed between the dual wall sconces.

Just outside the clear glass French door, get a glimpse of the morning deck, with private access from the master suite.

Transitional Breakfast Room Design Ideas:

The breakfast area takes a more central role in this Raleigh new home, acting as a dividing space between the kitchen and living room.

A large hanging light lends formality to this completely open eating space.

Contemporary Breakfast Room Design Ideas:

A trey ceiling extends from the kitchen to the breakfast room, creating a visual union of the two rooms.

This contemporary breakfast room calls for a rectangular table, placed parallel to the window wall and hanging light. The breakfast room table will further emphasize the angled island placement, facing the great room.

Classic Breakfast Room Design Ideas:

While open concept kitchens are very popular throughout North Carolina, this classic kitchen layout keeps the cooking and dining space separate from the living areas.

Just past the kitchen island, a large hanging light signals the breakfast table location.

Just past the breakfast nook, an archway with white columns leads to the sun room.

Formal Breakfast Room Design Ideas:

Lighting selections can make a strong impact on your breakfast room atmosphere. Large or complex fixtures can create a much more formal feel, like in this Raleigh new home.

Separate Breakfast Room Design Ideas:

Many breakfast nooks contain an entrance from outdoor living spaces - so remember to plan the size of your breakfast table around the swing of the door.

Traditional Breakfast Room Design Ideas:

Peninsula kitchens often open to a breakfast nook and living room, like the layout in this Raleigh new home design.

This space calls for a small, round breakfast table in the nook and bar height stools at the peninsula.
