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.

To open up this formerly small kitchen, a wall was removed and replaced with a spacious island that integrates a glass-top range and much-needed cabinetry. Contrasting against the black quartz countertops is a backsplash made from white subway tiles, which extend up to the ceiling. Open shelving with wrought iron brackets provide convenient and attractive display for dishware and accessories.
A long center island is topped by a rustic-industrial, candelabra-style pendant fixture, driving home this kitchen's modern farmhouse appeal. Woven seating gives the room a casual vibe, while all-white cabinetry and a white subway tile backsplash create a sleek backdrop that brings it a modern edge. Open shelving is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Instead of going overboard on a bright island color that you may question later, a vibrant trio of bar stools can give you the shot of color you desire. These stools were less than $40 each at a home decor store. New River Building Co. in metro Atlanta used just one bank of cabinets for the island, providing a deep space for seating.
The large rustic island centers this farmhouse kitchen and provides extra storage and prep space. An open shelf in the island keeps favorite cookbooks handy, while a pair of pendant lights illuminates the pretty white countertops.

In this home's new kitchen addition, designers used pieces of the old kitchen space, such as the old cabinets and wood floors, to create the new one. Then, they added features such as open shelves, stainless steel appliances, subway tile and wrought iron chairs to create a visually interesting rustic, industrial eat-in kitchen.
Soft neutral tiles ground the hallway and kitchen, where redwood is used throughout the open floor plan kitchen. The oversized island houses much-needed storage, range, extra sink and tons of prep space.

To replicate this Old World farmhouse look, wrap a plain drop-down header in cedar to create the appearance of an antique beam, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. Rustic lighting fixtures and rush-seat bar stools round out the farmhouse design.
