Supplemental heat for bump out nook?
We are building a house, and have a tiny 4′ x 6′ bump out in our kitchen. The bump out will have a booth in it, with large windows on 3 sides. It’s on the north side of the house.
This is located in the corner of a large 24 x 28′ great room. This large room will be heated with a mini split. The windows are good quality double pane vinyl, and we are located in Virginia, climate zone 4.
We are older, and this is our retirement home. I’m wondering if we will feel too cold during mid-winter next to all these windows. This is our dining area.
Does anyone have any suggestions for possible supplemental heat to keep us warm while in this booth? (Maybe a radiant heat source from above?) We’ll soon be installing rough-in electric, so this is a good time to make this decision. Thanks.
