There are several reasons why you should buy your furniture for the kitchen as a set rather than piece meal. Breakfast nook sets can be bought at any department store or large all purpose store like a Target or Wal-Mart. If you belong to a price club like Sam’s or BJ’s then this is also a good place to look. All of these kitchen furniture sets will need to be assembled, but since there are not too many parts, the assembly should be relatively simple.
The first benefit is that all of the pieces will match. When you buy a table in one place and several chairs in several other places, none of them are going to be stained or painted similar colors. You need to refinish them to make them come together. Of course, you will not try to make then look the same, because that would be impossible. Instead, you will choose colors that complement each other and try to tie all the pieces together with some common element. There is not need for all of this work if you buy a breakfast nook set.
Another advantage is that there are often other pieces of furniture that you can buy that match the set. A kitchen nook set consists of the breakfast table and the seating that goes around it. However, there are other pieces of furniture that you need to completely furnish a kitchen. Kitchen island furniture, especially stools, for example. If you buy a set, it may be possible to buy stools that match it. A theme carrying over from the nook to the rest of the kitchen is a good idea for continuity.
Another benefit of buying a set is that you can make sure that everything will fit before yo start buying. Buying pieces one at a time means that you will not know what all the furniture is before you start purchasing. That means that you run the risk of not being able to fit everything in the way you want to. When you buy a prepackaged set you know the exact dimensions of everything up front and it is easier to envision it in the space.
Finally, it is faster. While your eclectic taste may be better suited by looking for deals of unique furniture at yard sales and estate sales, it is quite time consuming. Most homeowners have many responsibilities and they cannot afford several weeks or months without a table in their kitchen while they look for the perfect chairs or table.
