Breakfast nook with built in seating and storage

This remodeled kitchen was transformed from a tiny compact kitchen to a small scale kitchen with much improved flow and storage. The space has become the central location for family interaction. An arched wall of a breakfast room was removed to create a better flow and layout to the space. We created the remembrance of the original arch within the new cabinetry detail over the built in bench seating and also within the hood.

Bench seat storage. - Is the access in the bench seat of this nook a hinge access or ? If hinged, what type of hinge was used? Thank you.

We used base/bench seat cabinets with drawers below. With the cushions, we felt it was a hassle to move cushions to access a lift up top.

What is the color on the cabinets? It looks exactly like what I'm trying to do in my kitchen :)

The cabinetry is Crystal Cabinet Work's "Sage". It is a very pale green.
