How to convert the L-shaped kitchen island into a functional and space-saving kitchen breakfast nook? I like the idea of the wine cooler instead of using a waterfall edge countertop. The benches in the nook already have storage rooms which make the kitchen tidy.

Some kitchens are just designed for busy cooks. Remember the cooks need quiet time and to rest their bodies. The designer will bring back the two-level kitchen island aka two-tier kitchen island with a fresh look. A combination of a side table and lounge chair in a kitchen breakfast nook ideas is a two-thumbs-up kitchen design approach.

Airy, roomy, and classy are together in this kitchen booth design. Black leather seats and a black granite tabletop are my favorites. The wood color and high-ceiling kitchen windows are a bonus. Since the table pedestal is so elegant and thin, even long-legged people can comfortably sit in the booth. If there is a third person, you can add a chair to the booth.

No windows in the kitchen won’t kill the desire for having L-shaped kitchen breakfast nook ideas. The experienced designer makes the dream come true.

The shiny stainless steel wall art and to color bench cushions are all sophisticated touches in this transitional kitchen area.

Inspirations in kitchen design are endless. Here, the kitchen island turns into a functional element in the kitchen. An L-shaped kitchen island is the most suitable for adding a breakfast nook. The two-tone cabinet’s traditional kitchen has a sustainable look. Picking the matching color palette supports a good blend of colors.

3 Main Shape Of The Breakfast Nook Design

L shape: The most popular nook shape is also called the corner nook. Just like the convertible sectional sofa. You can either face left or right. Please ask your designer for the details.
I shape: This is mostly called a Victorian-style nook. It is very convenient for crowded families. 
Booth: If you like to feel the comfort in the restaurant or diner, and if you have limited space in your kitchen this is the best option ever! 

Where To Put The Kitchen Breakfast Nook

This question is very customizable and based on your kitchen layout. But in general, I would like to mention the three most popular places for you. 
In front of the window: The kitchen breakfast nook looks great in front of the window and/or bay window. If there is only a window, an I shape or an L shape can be added as a kitchen design element. If it is a bay window the shape will be like a wide U. The narrow U-shaped kitchen breakfast nook is not recommended for any kitchen. 
At any corner in the kitchen: If the kitchen has a nice corner L shaped breakfast nook looks so rich. 
In front of the kitchen island: This is a genius style to hide the kitchen island behind the breakfast nook and it captures a good trick to make the kitchen bigger. You can even add a chaise lounge instead of a bench.

Materials For The Seating And Table In Kitchen Breakfast Nook

The bench:  It is mainly made out of wood or iron. Iron benches are a part of the French bistro style. Some French bistros can also have wooden benches. 
The bench cushion: The function of having the cushion in the kitchen serves in two different ways, to convey eating pleasure and is easy clean for the host: Leather, vegan leather, and waterproof fabric can be picked. For your desire, you can either go for the removable or the static seat and/or back cushion. Sometimes removable and static cushions can be used together. Both provide an aesthetic silhouette in your kitchen. 
The Dinette Table: Make sure that your dinette table has a pedestal to give more room for all sizes of legs. L-shape nooks can carry oval and rectangle pedestal tables and L shapes can corner nooks that are happy with round or oval tables.

Selection Of The Lighting For The Kitchen Breakfast Nook Design

The main idea is eating so please provide as much lighting in your eat-in-the-kitchen section. Kitchen breakfast nook ideas are always more pleasant with ample light. 
Daylight: That comes naturally if the kitchen has windows and/or a skylight. This is not a must since it can be maintained by using great recess lights. 
Kitchen Recessed Lights: You can provide the kitchen light fixture over the table. 
Kitchen Pendant: Kitchen pendants are always pretty to provide dim and shiny light over the table. You can add this by combining the kitchen recessed light and kitchen windows.
