Trendy Nook Ideas

Posted by creatingyourspace under Design and Decorating

Your home’s design should be able to accommodate even your smallest areas, and learning how to maximize your space is key to designing your home.  Remember, functionality is always the first question you need to ask yourself when creating an area.  With this in mind, maybe you have struggled to find a use for a small nook in your home.   These cutouts can be frustrating because they are not big enough to make into a room but still have enough space to be a visual eyesore if left unattended.  Well, you are in luck, because we gather our favorite nook transformation ideas that you can use in your home. Let’s take a look!

Breakfast Nook 

If you have a nook in your dining room or kitchen, it can be the perfect opportunity to transform that area into a breakfast nook.  You can add a bench with cushions to make a relaxing environment in the mornings. You can even build a custom bench to wrap around the nook, which has become more common or just add a small table with chairs.  That being said, we find that bench seating is always a great option to get the most out of your space.  You can even facilitate one of the walls as your bench’s backrest to cut costs.

Coffee Station 

Adding a coffee station can be a fun, robust add-on that is great for the coffee lovers.  Building a coffee station in a nook can not only make the area more functional but allow you to free up some space in your kitchen.  Add a coffee machine, mugs, coffee-themed art decor, and syrups for a fully-functioning station.  Also, you will want to consider if you are going to have to refrigerate any creams or kinds of milk and if you need a water supply nearby.  Evaluate your area and have a general idea before tackling this project.

Reading Nook 

Having a nice place to get away and relax is important in any home.  A reading nook can have a custom lounge area installed wall to wall or just add a chair.  Consider lighting options to keep your nook well lit. Natural light is ideal but not always an option in all homes. You can make the nook as comfy as you like but decide if you need more comfort or functionality.  If you are working from home in your reading nook, make it comfortable enough to get your task done but not too cozy that it becomes a nap station. 

Customizing a nook is a simple but effective way to get the most out of your home’s layout.  You will be surprised how a once useless small cut-out can become a fully functional activity area in your home.
