A Nook In The Kitchen

If you have a spare nook in the kitchen, use it for creating a dining space there. It can be an awkward nook or just a part of your kitchen, if it’s small, think banquette seatings for more comfort and space saving. Add a dining table and chairs and you’ll get a comfy nook. Keep it in the same style as the rest of the kitchen, you may also add color and pattern with it – place colorful pillows and go for colorful upholstery to do that.
