These Are The Best Breakfast Nooks Featured On Fixer Upper

Breakfast nooks are generally a casual spot to take your morning coffee or enjoy a quick meal before you head off to the office. More toned down than the elaborate dining room, a breakfast nook is a decidedly relaxed spot to start the day. Miami's DKOR Interiors says there are three components (and plenty of flexibility when it comes to design) when creating a typical breakfast nook, but the firm says it must include bench seating, room for pillows, and a table, of course. Plus, it is the ideal option if you need extra storage. Stylist Marianne Canada told The Spokesman-Review, "The space underneath a built-in banquette is ripe with possibilities." She explains that cabinets can be open or closed and can be used to "add texture with baskets, show off your cookbook collection, even use it to store large ceramic bowls that take up too much cabinet space."

Chip and Joanna Gaines, the husband-and-wife duo behind Fixer Upper, were at the forefront when the show aired, transforming the worst house on the block from a drab property to one that totally shines. If you are a fan of any home improvement shows like this, you're in luck because you've probably come across some unique designs while watching. We've done the legwork, scouring through every show of Fixer Upper (yes, all five seasons!) to see the most inspiring breakfast nooks they featured. Intrigued? Keep scrolling to see the top spots and create the perfect low-key breakfast spot in your own home.
