Chip and Joanna expanded this kitchen entryway by cutting a wide archway, making both the kitchen and the dining room feel larger. Twin modern-industrial style chandeliers illuminate the kitchen island and dining table, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
A pair of dark wooden doors open up to the arched entry to the courtyard. Pendant lighting and floor lights keep the outdoor space well-lit during the evening. To the left, a small, rectangular water feature adds tranquility to the design.
This may be a hard-working laundry room, but it feels anything like one. HGTV fan MrPeabody prevents a pure "utility" atmosphere by integrating the home's rustic architecture, wooden ceiling beams and warm pendant lighting.
