Who doesn’t love the idea of retreating to a cozy safe haven in the morning? Whether you love to be up bright and early or you take a bit longer to get your day started, here are five great decor tips to make the most of your morning dining space. 

Stylish Rug

Area rugs provide a beautiful design element while also serving practical uses. They can make a space warmer, more comfortable, and provide a blueprint for where the furniture should be laid out. They can even help reduce noise and allergies!

Drop Leaf Table

Drop leaf tables have a solid core, perfect for just one or two people, but they also have foldable sides that can be put up for company. This is an especially great idea for those with a smaller kitchen space. Drop leaf tables come in an array of styles and finishes so that they can seamlessly integrate with any kitchen style. Practical, durable, and fashionable! 

Bar Nook

This is for all those kitchens with an island. Make the most of that space by adding some bar stools. Especially for those with a large dining area, this additional seating is a great way to provide an intimate gathering space. And the best part is that stools come in all shapes, sizes, and colors so that you can really have fun incorporating them in with your design theme.

Take It Outside

Okay, we know this may seem unconventional, but if you have a patio or balcony that you’re not sure what to do with, turn it into an outdoor breakfast nook! Both indoor or outdoor furniture can work here. Plus, waking up to birds chirping, the sun shining, and fresh air can do wonders for a person’s mental health.

Mix and Match

For those on a budget or who have a more eclectic style, we recommend mixing retro or traditional styles with modern elements to make the space pop. Combine a bohemian light fixture with a vintage table you snagged at a garage sale. Repurpose those outdoor patio chairs for indoor dining and pair them with removable botanical wallpaper. Or even add some peel and stick tile flooring! The options are endless and the quality of removable design elements has gone way up in recent years.The most important thing is that you have fun with it.
