Since 1977, the Cozy Kitchens Group has been a family-owned and operated business on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Nestled in the quaint village of Kitty Hawk, our 25,000 square foot showroom and manufacturing facility houses our world-class production workshop, a top-notch design team and displays our many options of cabinets, countertops, flooring and more. Our name has changed over the years, but our exceptional service has not!
Originally begun as Cozy Home Custom Cabinets in a building approximately 100 square feet, founder Cliff Neal began hand-making custom cabinetry & furniture pieces for local contractors. As the business grew, he purchased land in Kitty Hawk Village and changed locations, moving less than a mile down the road. Cliff grew up in Seattle and moved with his family to Florida in his teen years. As a young surfer, the waves & contracting work on the Outer Banks beckoned to him and he relocated here in 1973. He married his wife Margaret in 1974 and together they made their permanent home on the Outer Banks. He was a talented craftsman and was always good for taking on challenging designs and out-of-the-ordinary custom spaces and pieces. A master craftsman in both design and execution, Cliff was often found in the shop creating and building his own designs. His passions were working with his hands and his family. In 2003 after an unfortunate fire which destroyed the original building, Cliff was given the challenging task to rebuild Cozy from the ground up. Though emotionally draining, the opportunity was taken to refine every process to reflect our goal of providing the highest quality, paired with the most outstanding service. Since Cliff’s passing in 2017, his wife Margaret has taken over full ownership of Cozy Kitchens along with son Nathan Neal as President and CEO. Following in his father’s footsteps, Nathan continues to strive for quality and perfection, to keep the family-owned and operated business thriving and to contribute to the local community in a manner that echoes his fathers generous spirit.
Over the years as the OBX has grown and developed and the demand for custom cabinetry and baths has increased, Cozy has stayed a forerunner in the cabinet, tile, and appliance industry. Our evolution as a company and our years of experience have served to sharpen our vision and reignite a passion for what we do. We continually strive to achieve a level of productivity, service, and quality unparalleled on the Outer Banks! Respecting the fact that one of the most valuable commodities anyone has is time, we have enhanced our offerings to better meet the needs of our clients. Our showroom is one of the finest on the east coast and well worth a drive to our small Village of Kitty Hawk, even if just for a visit. When you’re in the area, please stop by and let us show you around!
Our kitchen designs are warm, welcome, stylish & functional…and we are COZY!
