Modern Kitchen Nook

It doesn’t take much to make a kitchen nook feel warm and inviting, but the lighting might be the most important element.

These adorable kitchen niches are usually small in scale, only being about to fit a small table. Yet, they maximize space by turning an awkward alcove into something useful.  I remember using mine in my childhood home growing up to do projects and homework while my mom cooked dinner. Plus, there is something so peaceful about waking up and going to the kitchen to enjoy a warm up of coffee in your sunny nook.

Need more inspiration? I've rounded up three breakfast nooks that I absolutely adore and paired lighting that you can get for your own kitchen nook.

If you don’t have a built-in nook in your kitchen (I certainly don’t, living in San Francisco), try to make one for yourself by adding a small table in a sunny corner of your living room or another empty spot in your home.

I currently use our bay window to achieve a “sitting area” feel and it’s my happy place to sit and enjoy myself.

I hope these nooks have inspired you to create your own!
