So You Want To Design The Perfect Breakfast Nook

It’s very hard to get a proper dining room when you’re working with the small-style real estate of Singaporean homes, which is why many homeowners choose to opt for breakfast bars. If you’re one of them, here are 5 ways to design the perfect one:

 

1. Getting the bar height right

The one thing that you absolutely have to ensure perfection on is the bar height of your breakfast nook. Now this can be tricky because most people choose to go with the flow of their countertop heights, which are designed specifically for a standing person. You need to make sure that you can easily put your elbows on the table surface when it’s time for eating.

 

2. Choosing comfy stools

Aside from the bar height, the position and design of your stools also matter a lot. Most bar stool are tall and adjustable because many breakfast bar counters are matched with countertop heights. Their adjustability ensures that you don’t end up wither too short, nor too tall when you sit down to have a nice meal or conversation after a long day.

 

3. Giving it a nice view

The thing about breakfast bars is that they’re open – more like a transitional space than an actual one. They usually lie between the kitchen and the living rooms, so you need to give them a large visual range. This basically means that you have to ensure you have a nice view whenever you’re sitting there. Don’t close it off from the kitchen – go with a half-window if you have to. Similarly, keep it open to the rest of the home from the other side as well.

 

4. Accessorizing right

Accessorizing any space is a challenging task, but finding the right décor for a space as functionally and aesthetically dichotomous as a breakfast bar can be extremely hard. You need to keep in mind that it has to be used for eating, so keep away from anything too frou-frou and ornamental. A small planter with a shelf or two for crockery are nice additions to the empty surface.

 

5. Transparent or not

Many breakfast bar designs are not open from the back and feature some hardcore custom cabinetry to boot. But if you want to emulate transparency in your homes, you can keep them open to show off the decorative legs of your stools as well.
