In our fast-paced society, breakfast doesn’t get the respect it deserves. A good breakfast is an essential part of the day, and yet it's so common to skip it altogether. Designing a beautiful breakfast nook can encourage the whole family to take a few moments to enjoy this quintessential meal. And choosing the correct rug for breakfast nook décor lays a good foundation for everything else.

It's Only Natural

Natural materials like wood and fur naturally create a more cozy, welcoming space. Combine these materials with plant life and you are one step closer to creating a very natural, warm nook. If plants are too high maintenance, even faux plants can beautifully accent your table. Natural sights outside the windows and painted on canvases can also further develop your love of nature and natural decor.

Simple Stripes

Stripes are incredibly versatile in how they can be used with different interior design styles. In fact, stripes are so versatile that they can pair well with bold wallpaper, intricately designed chairs, and other details. When looking for that perfect breakfast nook rug, consider how a striped rug can complement your room's other designs.

If you have the space in your kitchen, a round table is an excellent choice for maneuverability. Pair with a round dining room rug to create a cohesive look. Comfy chairs are a must, so consider splurging on a set you love and saving on the table by choosing something basic.

You might pair a rectangular breakfast nook rug with a round table for a more defined space. Whether or not your area sees much natural light, pick something bright and cheery.

Limited Palette

Limited and focused color palettes do not have to be boring. Take inspiration from this built-in breakfast nook's bold teal color palette. By using the same color in various fabrics, furniture, and surfaces, you saturate the room with that color. That alone makes a dramatic impact, but by intentionally scattering pattern and unexpected colors in this scheme, you can create a highly contemporary, tightly designed corner nook.

Grand Elegance

Your home's breakfast nook can carry whatever style you choose. Whether you choose to create something very home and approachable or an elegant space to enjoy a treat, you can show off your style through furniture, artwork, accents, lights, and rugs.

Super tight on space? A drop leaf table paired with a round breakfast nook rug can work perfectly if you don’t need to tuck the table away. If you do, try a runner rug instead. The runner will protect your floor when the table is folded away while still defining the space when it’s out.

Again, pick a bright color for your rug to set the mood for pleasant mornings.

Bonus tip: When not in use for eating, the space can double as a reading nook or relaxation space. Picture yourself curling up with a good book and a hot beverage to wind down from your day. For more inspiration, browse online photos for reading nook ideas.

If you have the room and budget set aside, our favorite breakfast nook solution is a custom banquette, like the swooping version shown here. A banquette is great because tons of people can slide in, and if you get it covered in a stain-resistant fabric, it’s kid-friendly as well. Pair with a rug in the some color palette for some added coziness, plus, to give the space even more of a wow-factor.

Beautiful Built Ins

Built-in breakfast nooks can be styled in many unique ways. A simple way to connect your built-in bench's style to the rest of the nook and the room is through color. Although the nearby chairs feature just a small amount of blue around the edges of the seats, that subtle connection creates a cohesive and beautiful kitchen nook.

Eclectic Tastes

Eclectic breakfast nooks are typically highly personal, dynamic, and cozy. Like this small breakfast nook, you may choose to use a traditional wallpaper with highly contemporary artwork and modern furniture. Your breakfast nook is your own, and as such, you should go wild expressing your unique aesthetic.

Subtle Touches

Modern, open concept homes often have various spaces open to one another. In these cases, your breakfast nook may be visible from the kitchen, living room, or separate dining room. Tying these spaces together with similar colors is a fantastic way to create a cohesive space while defining each space as unique. Inverting color palettes so the accent color of one space is the primary color of the other is a simple yet effective way to create a beautiful home.

Cowhide Rugs

Cowhide rugs are highly unique with their patterns, shapes, and color palettes. In the case of this living room, the nook's hide ties back to a larger hide in the living room. However, even if you simply use a cowhide rug beneath a small breakfast nook, you can create a highly unique, cozy breakfast nook.

And of course, what good is a breakfast nook without a scrumptious breakfast? Even if you only have time for toast, you can make it extra-special by tracking down the best local bakery for bread or croissants, and treat yourself to a jar of seasonal jam.

For a quick breakfast nook refresh, get comfy with a new rug.

A Solid Foundation

Your rug can establish your breakfast nook as a comfortable place to gather and fellowship. Beyond that, the rug can actually serve as the foundation for the room's primary colors and scheme. The dark blues of this rug carry over to the dining room chairs and the lighting fixture. Let your rug define your room's main color in order to create a cohesive, well tailored nook.

Completely Coastal

Coastal style breakfast nooks are typically light and airy with their colors and accents. Light creams, soft blues, and sea greens are popular in coastal spaces, but if you want to create a more bold variation of coastal style, use a beige that leans towards orange. Those orange tones will convey a sense of warmth and complement the other coastal colors of the room.

Marvelous Minimalism

Minimalist breakfast nooks don't include superfluous accents and decorations to clutter the space. Instead, they may the most of the accents they have and choose more simple decorations. To add some personality and flair to a minimalist space, consider a bold area rug like this one.
