If your family is like most American families, you use your nook table a lot more use than your dining room table. However, sometimes it can feel like either your kitchen or nook table are being comprimised by trying the share the same space. This family made their breakfast table part of their kitchen by marrying it with the island. The kitchen now feels less cramped while still allowing six people to comfortable sit together. Having a sink in your "table" can also be very handy.
