Benches, tables, banquettes and chairs are some common pieces of furniture found in a breakfast nook. Breakfast nooks also usually contain lamps or hanging light fixtures, and they sometimes have bookshelves or other storage units.
A breakfast nook is a small dining area that's often set into a bay window. Some breakfast nooks have built-in furniture similar to restaurant booths. Others have a combination of built-in seating and chairs, while modern nooks often have simple table and chairs. Lots of windows are essential for good lighting in small breakfast nooks, and cushions give the casual eating areas a cozy feel.
