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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

This kitchen takes style up a notch with it's use of bold colors and shapes. Cabinets range in style in color from blue glass-front to red or striped. This eclectic look lends itself well to the room's high ceilings and geometric windows.
This beautiful contemporary kitchen expertly blends the simplicity of wood with a neutral gray countertop and gray backsplash, using utensil canisters to bring a little pop of color to this clean space.
One of the things these homeowners wanted for the design of their new home was a fun, functional place for their family to spend time bonding-particularly over food. So, in the kitchen, designers kept the concept simple, open and functional. Elegant materials and colors keep the space stylish, but minimal decoration helps maximize the useful space and minimize clutter. Designers made sure that the homeowners had tons of counter space for easy prep and serving, as well as plenty of cabinets for storage and a large sink, making for easy cleanup.
This gorgeous chef kitchen, beautifully decorated with hardwood floor, breakfast area, white cabinets, taupe decor, and a chandelier over the kitchen island, is the perfect place to entertain your hungry guests.
