Welcome to our gallery featuring breakfast nook furniture sets. about the featured breakfast nook above.
About 5 years ago my wife and I were on a walk in our neighborhood and we noticed a home we thought looked pretty cool was having an open house.
I LOVE going to open houses and do so whenever I have time or happen to stumble upon one. We marched into the home and took the tour. The home’s main living area was on the second floor (a concept I like).
While the lower floor was impressive with some bedrooms and renovated family room, the upper main living floor was spectacular. It was in this home that I saw my first corner breakfast nook table with L-shaped booth in person.
It definitely made an impact on me. My wife liked it too. It was a custom booth in oak and matched the accompanying large table and chairs. It made for a great family dining area in the kitchen.
Booths are very popular in restaurants so why not put on in your home!
When we go out to eat, we prefer spacious booths. They’re more comfortable and provide privacy.
We’re not alone; many people prefer booths in restaurants. Sitting at a table in the middle of the restaurant space is like floating among a sea of other diners… adrift while dining in a booth is like having a private oasis.
So the question is – if you prefer booths in restaurants, why not put one in your home? I’m not suggesting it be your only dining option in your home; however, for family meals it’s a great idea.
One BIG Benefit of Dining Nooks…
Dining nooks are great space-savers. You can accommodate more people in much less space compared to a traditional table and chairs. Moreover, as you’ll see below, they easily accommodate 5 plus people (some up to 7 people).
While you can certainly engage a custom cabinet maker to design, built and install a breakfast nook in your kitchen, that’s not your only option. I was delighted to discover that you can choose from several pre-built breakfast nooks ready to install.
Below is a list of 14 top corner breakfast nook furniture sets… some are obviously more elaborate and comfortable than others. Take a look and consider it for your kitchen.
My all-time favorite nook is the island dining nook. Below you’ll be amazed at how cool these island with included dining nook are. While we don’t have one in our home, I sure wish we did.
1. L-shaped island nook dining table
2. U-shaped island dining nook
3. Curved island dining nook
If you like curves, here’s a nicely design island with a curved built-in dining nook on the opposite side. While the kitchen is large, this is actually a space-saving feature.
Notice how Audex used transparent chairs on the outside so that the island remains visible from throughout the room. Moreover, you don’t see many kitchens with blue as an accent color, but it sure works here. Designed by Audax.
4. Accommodate the whole family
The above island nook easily accommodates 6 people very comfortably. It’s stylishly appointed with pillows and long oval dining table with matching chairs.
5. Clever DIY island breakfast nook
Okay, not quite DIY, but you buy the bench and back up against an island and slide in a table and chairs and you pretty much create a quasi island nook. You could take the above idea pretty far as a kitchen space-saving option. Source: Hayneedle
Our next section sets out corner nook dining options. Some are stand-alone while others are built into the corner. Like the nook islands, these too are space-saving kitchen dining design features.
1. Modern Corner Breakfast Nook
This is a stunning L-shaped dining bench (cushioned) with a chair and cushioned bench. Legs for seating and table are chrome. It’s a rich yet modern breakfast nook or can work nicely as a dining room set.
2. TMS Breakfast Nook
This 3-piece breakfast nook is an all-wood (manufactured wood) dark breakfast nook with an additional bench. You could add another chair for even more seating. The underside of the L-shaped bench is open for additional storage. It’s not an overly large set which means it can fit in many corner spaces.
3. Ardmore Breakfast Nook Set
This three piece breakfast nook can help brighten up your space or fit in nicely with a dominantly white color scheme. Like the nook above, this one also offers storage space under the main L-shaped bench. The table top and bench seats are pine.
4. Large Contemporary Corner Breakfast Nook
This is a stunning contemporary large corner breakfast nook dining set complete with large L-shaped cushioned bench, geometrically interesting wood table with steel base and matching modern chair.
5. Acme 6 Piece Breakfast Nook
This 6 piece cushioned breakfast nook set is more substantial and comfortable than the 2 listed above (but also more expensive). The color is espresso throughout. The furniture frame is wood and the table top is marble.
I like the fact that this particular set does not require being wedged into a corner. It’s a free-standing breakfast nook that can be placed anywhere, including a corner.
6. Chelsea All-Wood Dining Nook
This is a great looking honey-finished all-wood breakfast nook that won’t empty your wallet (L-shaped bench priced under $400). The large open space under the L-shaped bench offers storage or access to floor heaters for a warm dining environment.
The pieces in this set can be reconfigured to fit in right or left facing corners. NOTE: the table and bench are sold separately.

This is a complete set with L-shaped bench, table and separate bench that seats 5 people. It’s constructed with MDF (it’s priced accordingly under $400).
8. Impressive Papario Black 6 Piece Corner Dining Set
This sleek, black corner dining set works as a free-standing unit or can be placed in the corner. The table is fairly large; the entire furniture set can accommodate up to 6 people.
One important design element to note is that the table is counter height, which is a little higher than typical dining room tables. It’s kind of like an elevated bar booth.
9. Stunning Ravella Corner Six Piece Dining Nook Set
This unit includes the wood table, 2 dining benches, corner bench and two chairs. The L-shaped bench is 3 pieces so it can be re-configured to fit your corner space. Moreover, this unit is free-standing so it can be placed away from a corner wall as well.
It’s cushioned with rich wood creating a comfortable dining space for up to 6 people.

11. Fuessen Corner Dining Set
This is a solid filled Spruce wood corner dining furniture set with a large L-shaped dining bench, separate cushioned bench and cushioned matching chair.
The larger rectangle wood dining table is large enough to serve a family meal… the seating can accommodate up to 7 people (although this might be a little tight).
12. Modern Breakfast Nook Set
This a different breakfast nook style in that the frame is powder-coated metal and black PVC with a Formica table top going for a more traditional diner style nook. This model would fit well in any modern kitchen space or industrial style interior design.

This 6 piece espresso dining nook set includes an artificial marble square table top with cherry finished wood base. The bench and chair frames are a matching cherry finish.
With cushioned furniture, this nook creates a more comfortable dining set. Like others on this page, it’s a free-standing unit that will also fit well in a corner.

16. Walnut Breakfast Nook
Here’s a walnut finished breakfast nook. The materials include Pine and MDF finished in a dark walnut color which can work well in a white kitchen (as long as there are other unifying dark elements in the kitchen) or dark kitchen designs.
17. Cushioned Counter Height Breakfast Nook
It’s important to note that the table with this set is counter height which is a little higher than typical dining tables. The upholstery is black faux leather surrounded by oak hardwood frames finished in a dark wood veneer.
18. Earth Tone L-Shaped Breakfast Nook Table and Bench
Neutral color pattern with this dining nook offers a way to enhance the color scheme in your kitchen space.
19. Honey Wood Breakfast Nook L-Shaped Bench (No Table)
If you just want the L-shaped booth bench, here’s a great option that will work well with many table styles.
20. Beach/Cottage Style Breakfast Nook
I love the cottage/beach style, especially for nooks. This could fit in many casually designed light kitchens. Easily seats 5 to 6 people. It’s fabulous. Learn more.
21. Six-Seat Medium Wood Nook
The above nook has a rustic charm that would look good in any wood-centric kitchen, especially if light or medium hardwood is the dominant wood tone. Learn more.
22. Corner Nook Table and Bench with Decorative Panels
23. High-Back Three-Piece Nook Set
This set ramps up the elegant factor with an almost shaker panel design on the high-back, curved table and bench legs and molding on the corner bench. Seats 6 easily. Learn more.
24. The Carriage House Nook
I can’t help but really like the country style of the above breakfast nook. The dark and white wood contrast is a great start, but the texture of the boards looks great as well. How many people? 6 it seats which is definitely respectable.
25. The Milan
Clearly the Milan nook isn’t going to work in your rustic, farm style or country kitchen but it’s sure a winner for the modern, eclectic and contemporary kitchen designs. Bright white with chrome is a winner in the right decor.
26. The Homestead Nook
Contrast the above with the Milan above that… a big difference in style, but not design. Most of these store-bought breakfast nooks are the same in design – being an L-shaped bench with back, table and simple bench without a back. The thing is, these are insanely popular.
27. A Little Birtie told me about this nook
Haha, not a spelling mistake. The breakfast dining nook below is called the “Birtie 3 Piece Solid Wood Breakfast Dining Nook.” Check it out:
28. Backless L-shaped storage bench nook
Who needs a seat back, right? Here’s an example of an L-shaped storage bench serving as dining bench in nook formation. Source: Hayneedle
