Build Your Own Breakfast Nook with Storage

Do you have a seemingly empty corner in your kitchen and you want to put it to good use? Are you looking for something that will give extra storage space? Well, look no further – a breakfast nook with storage is a perfect idea.

Despite its name, breakfast nooks aren’t meant for breakfast alone. It is actually a multi-functional space used for various purposes – for late night coffee, as homework station for the kids, in reading a book, when writing emails, and much more. It is also perfect when you want to put in additional storage spaces. Building a bench with flip-top covers will provide you with the storage that you need.

You can take on the task of building your own nook. There are a lot of available plans available for free download. You just have to choose a design and then work from there. You’ll save a lot of money by doing it yourself.

At first, the scale of the project may appear a little intimidating depending on how big you want your nook to be. Intimidating, yes, but not impossible.

So take a deep breath and dive right in. Just imagine how beautiful and cozy that nook will be, plus all the extra storage you’re getting.
