The open concept and flow of this home allows guests to follow the brick walkway up to the beautiful front door. Following a straight line will lead guests from the front entrance to the back door where the brick walkway picks up again on the back patio.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines removed the wall between the Purks' kitchen and dining room to create a more open concept feel. They installed a natural wood support beam in it's place. The appliances were replaced and moved to the other side of the room- a new washer and dryer is now located in the laundry room. All new white cabinets and black marble countertops bring a modern look to the kitchen, and two hanging globe light fixtures illuminate the breakfast bar.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines removed the wall between the homeowners' dining room and kitchen and installed a natural wood support beam in its place. The dining room is illuminated with a metal chandelier and staged with bright, comfortable chairs and a dining table set with blue plates and French Country accessories and greenery. The new French doors open to the backyard and offer additional natural light.
The textured accent wall and contemporary pendant light are standout features in this open concept kitchen. The breakfast bar with a red and gray granite countertop pairs well with the red-brown cabinets.
Joanna Gaines, of HGTV's hit show Fixer Upper, wanted to give these homeowners the kitchen of their dreams. They desired a modern, rustic open concept kitchen, but their previous kitchen was small and closed in, so Chip and Joanna knocked down the walls surrounding the space to give the kitchen more square footage, but also to provide the homeowners with the open concept home they've been longing for.
A light color palette makes this open concept living area and kitchen feel bright and open. A tobacco stick chandelier delineates a small dining area in the kitchen, and sailboat artwork in the living area serves as a nod to the apartment's coastal location.
KITCHEN, AFTER: Removing a wall between the kitchen and dining room has created an open concept in this Atlanta home. The gourmet kitchen is equipped with modern appliances and granite countertops and an island that also has room for a breakfast bar.
