It always baffles me when people say they don’t have breakfast or cannot stomach eating before lunchtime. I was raised on the notion that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I have lived by that rule whole-heartedly my entire life.
It’s the first thing I think of as I wake up; planning what breakfast treat I shall choose that day. A considerably vital part of the waking up process, I would be lost without the time spent making my breakfast and enjoying it as I fuel up for the day’s activities that lie ahead.
When devouring my morning meal I like to be seated in the kitchen, away from the TV, so I can enjoy it as my brain slowly comes to terms with the fact that I need to be fully functioning and productive. If you have the luxury of a breakfast bar then you should be the envy of all your friends. Giving the feeling of a being in a 1950’s diner, the breakfast bar stools from Lakeland Furniture elevate this daily ritual to a different level.
Perched on a stool, you can tuck into your bowl of cereal, bacon sandwich or scrambled egg on toast as you read the paper or simply take in the quiet before the hustle and bustle of your day begins.
Not only a kitchen feature that is handy for breakfast, bar stools also fit the bill for entertaining. Whether your best friend is having man trouble and needs a cuppa and a chinwag, or you fancy eating in a more casual manner, the bar stool is the perfect level of informal and not too comfy. By this I mean that the stool is not so fancy as to give the feeling of a dinner party, and does not go to the comfy extreme of a sofa where you may run the risk of falling asleep.
From the extra height the bar stool gives you while sitting, you can also avoid the pleading eyes of your greedy pets as they scamper about your feet wanting some of your tasty food. It is common knowledge that you can be stronger willed the further you are from puppy dog eyes.
So take that extra fifteen minutes in the morning to make sure you have a hearty breakfast and enjoy the quiet of your kitchen. It is definitely all worth it when you arrive at work without the grumbles of a hungry stomach and still attempting to find the on switch for your brain.
