Breakfast Furniture for your Breakfast Nook

Breakfast Furniture for your Breakfast Nook

If you’re looking to create or update a breakfast nook area in your home, specialized breakfast furniture should be the first place you look. Whether you dream of starting off every morning right with a delightful meal while basking in the refreshing new-day sun, or want to transform a seldom-used area into an intimate and cozy nook, breakfast furniture can be just the solution. Creating a breakfast nook is usually a fairly inexpensive and simple process, requiring only a few pieces of furniture and just a small area.

Features characteristic of breakfast furniture include:

  • – a small table that does not take up much space
  • – bench seating, which is more efficient and requires less space than individual chairs
  • – a wedge shape that nestles into corners for a cozy and out-of-the-way design
  • – light or natural finishes that supplement the idea of a refreshing morning

With these ideas in mind, a breakfast nook is usually found tucked in or near the kitchen, usually out of the way and preferably located by a window where natural light can illuminate the area. A designated spot to start your day can be beneficial to your routine and help you take mornings in stride.

Imagine snuggling into your breakfast nook with the smell of coffee brewing, an omelette cooking, and a small bowl of cereal teasing your appetite. The sun is shining through a nearby window providing the perfect light for perusing the newspaper. After breakfast you are within a few steps of your kitchen where you can move your dishes, and return with your laptop to send a few emails before getting dressed and starting your day.

Double Dressers

Double Dressers

Double dressers are the gold standard for bedroom storage. They provide an optimal balance of storage space and drawer count, with an aesthetically pleasing symmetrical design. Double dressers are the most prevalent because of the effective design, so there are many styles and colors available to fit your bedroom. Traditional-style double dressers are very easy to come by as this tried-and-true design has been around for generations, but the prevalence of double dressers assures you can find them in styles from Classic Traditional to Modern Contemporary and everywhere in-between.

Six drawer double dressers are the most common type, with a 3×2 design. A row of smaller drawers sometimes accompanies the primary drawers (usually as the top row), intended to organize smaller and more delicate items. Sometimes these rows include three or four smaller drawers, rather than a double row, but the primary design of the piece is still a double dresser. A well-designed double dresser provides ample storage space for the average person’s wardrobe (excluding closet items that need to be hung, of course), and larger models with a 4×2 design may even be enough to accommodate couples in a single unit. Double dressers often include optional mirrors to enhance their style and functionality in the bedroom, great for getting dressed in the morning.

Double dressers are generally intended for bedroom use, though the effective storage capabilities and aesthetics of many models make them viable in other living spaces, as well. But if you are looking for the ideal bedroom storage solution that provides ample space and a good drawer count in a compact unit, you can’t beat the design of a double dresser. And as one of the most popular furniture pieces manufactured, there are models out there that will perfectly fit the style and personality of your bedroom.

When something works, it just works. And double dressers are something that just works.

Futon Drawers – Multi-functionality to the Max!

Futon Drawers – Multi-functionality to the Max!

night-and-day-winter-futon-with-drawer-1

Futons are great for multi-functional areas like a studio apartment. They provide a couch and a bed in one convenient unit. Futons with futon drawers take this multi-functionality even further by adding storage to the couch/bed. You now have within a single unit, a couch, bed, and storage space for three distinct and practical uses. Futons with futon drawers are great for studio apartments where space is at a premium, but also make a good solution for other needs. If you don’t have a guest bedroom, a futon with futon drawers provides an area that suits all the needs of a guest. They have a couch to sit and relax on, a bed to sleep on, and the futon drawers provide a place to keep overnight or weekend supplies like a pillow, blanket, change of clothes, and toothbrush. In fact, using futon drawers to hold a pillow and blanket makes transforming the piece from couch to bed that much easier and more convenient for any situation. Or if you have more pressing storage needs in the room, futon drawers are a great and out of the way solution. For whatever the need, or needs, in any type of home, futons with futon drawers can’t be beat in terms of space-saving multi-functionality.
