Though much of Artemesia was left intact during the multi-decade renovation, owner Leonard Fenton realized that to make the house marketable to contemporary buyers he would have to expand the kitchen. Older homes often featured functional, smaller kitchens rarely used by the home's occupants.
KITCHEN, AFTER: The kitchen has completely new cabinets with plenty of storage, high-end appliances, granite countertops, a barn door and new hardwood floors. The kitchen opens up to the dining room, making this galley kitchen feel more like an eat-in kitchen.
This kitchen has been reconfigured to take advantage of the new open concept floor plan. A large kitchen island provides more counter space, as well as doubles as a kitchen table with stools running underneath. The sliding door was reduced to a sink under the window, allowing the galley kitchen to run along the whole wall. Stainless steel appliances, pendant and recessed lighting, and a neutral color scheme create a clean modern look to the kitchen. New flooring was added throughout the whole first floor.
As seen on Beach Flip, Contestants Lucy and Daphney removed all evidence of the old enclosed kitchen and created a large dream kitchen with lots of cabinetry, a huge island and stainless steel appliances on the first floor of the renovated Southwind condo.
The kitchen in the King home has been completely transformed and repositioned. Some of the key elements of the kitchen are the open shelves, the black granite countertops, the brick backsplash, a vent hood, stainless steel appliances, industrial light fixtures and a custom island, as seen on Fixer Upper. (after)
Beach Flip contestants Martha and Alex installed new wood flooring throughout the whole condo and removed the kitchen cabinets and pass thru wall so that the kitchen size could be increased and flow into the living and dining space.

KITCHEN, AFTER: The kitchen was enlarged by taking down the wall between the pantry and dining room. It's now a bright space with white cabinets, plenty of storage, a large island for cooking and entertaining, and new stainless steel appliances. There is a great mix of modern and industrial throughout the space.
The homeowner's newly renovated kitchen is shown. The wall section dividing the kitchen and dining room has been removed, allowing a straight line of site through the whole first floor. The refrigerator now stands where the old sink previously was, and the old window closed up. A new slightly smaller kitchen island allows the same bar stools to fit comfortably in the narrow room. The sink has moved below the other back window. A clean white color scheme, updated stainless steel appliances and modern overhead lighting create a contemporary feel to the space without changing the room's size.
