Hilary's design on this open concept kitchen for HGTV's hit show Love It or List It incorporates clean lines and subtle contrast. From the clean, white cabinets to the gray backsplash and countertop, this kitchen uses its neutral colors to give it a tidy feel. The dark bar chair and the soft colors of the napkins and canisters help to soften the stark colors of this neutral kitchen.
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.

The new French doors open to the backyard and offer additional natural light.
