The Breakfast Room

THE BREAKFAST ROOM

We have heard several times that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  I believe the surroundings for this meal is equally as important.  Busy families often fall into the habit of eating on the run.  I so wish that habit would break.  An attractive and comfortable breakfast room may just help with that effort.  By breakfast room, I realize that is most likely an eating area in the kitchen.  So be it.  As long as the area is respected for what you intend for it’s purpose.

An open corner in the kitchen will become a significant space for breakfast by the use of significant pieces.  This is achieved by using your imagination.  Rather than a “matchy-matchy” table and chair set, vary the concept.

There are homes which have a true breakfast room.  Albeit, these are most likely homes built before mid century.  Hopefully in most cases they have not been transformed into home offices tangled with computer cords and paper shredders.

Whether your breakfast room is separate from your kitchen or an extension of it, give it importance.  With a little fore thought and maybe fifteen minutes less sleep, be determined to make breakfast a priority for your family.  Start the day nourishing those bodies with healthy food and nourish those souls by starting the day together because…

 

EVERY DAY MATTERS
