If the heart of the home is the kitchen,

then the heart of the kitchen is an eat-in nook. It is more than just some stools pulled up to an island, but rather a dedicated place to sit, conversate and enjoy a meal or work on a project. It conveys a sense of home, a place to gather and spend time with the ones you love.

For the real estate a nook takes up it yields a great deal of functionality. But getting the proportions correct on built in seating is the difference between something that becomes a space people want to hang out or to avoid. Incorrect proportions can not only be uncomfortable but bad for your posture. Enlist the help of a professional if you are considering adding an eat in nook to your kitchen. Here are some of the beautiful breakfast nooks we have built for our clients.
