Open Floor Plan Kitchen Mixes Rustic and Industrial Styles
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.
Natural wood beams on the ceiling combine with clean-lined cabinetry to create a kitchen filled with juxtapositions. Modern track lighting, stained concrete floors and sleek quartz countertops bring industrial edge to the space without erasing its warm, rustic vibe. The designers removed all downstairs walls to create an open-concept kitchen, dining and living area.
As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, John and Anthony designed a kitchen space that is family friendly. Adjacent to the both the kitchen and the office space, the kids' play area provides the little ones with a place to play within eyesight while mom and dad fix the family's meals.
Open Floor Plan Combines Kitchen, Dining and Living
Kitchen Cousins John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino took a narrow and dated galley kitchen, blew out some walls and created this beautifully open floor plan in a luxe new space that marries kitchen, dining area and living room. The window between the dining area and living room is actually a single, large span of glass. The framing elements -- technically termed mullions -- create the effect of individual panes and are actually a decorative accent added separately.
Open, Industrial Kitchen with Access to Surrounding Rooms
As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, Kitchen Cousins John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino transformed a tiny kitchenette-style space into this impressive and versatile new kitchen with an open feel and free-flowing access to surrounding rooms.
Bright, Industrial Kitchen with Open Concept Design
America's Most Desperate Kitchen designers John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino wanted to give the homeowners the most efficient space they could, so these Kitchen Cousins removed the walls that closed in this kitchen making it feel small and cramped and created a space that has easy access to all of the common spaces in the home. Then added bright colors to the cabinets and industrial details that helped to bring this space to life.
New Design Aspects Give Boundaries to Open, Industrial Kitchen
John and Anthony, of America's Most Desperate Kitchens, designed an open, functional space to meet their needs. To define the boundaries of the new kitchen space, the Kitchen Cousins added a brick wall to separate the kitchen from the living room, a small, informal breakfast bar to separate the dining room and the stove and shelving to separate the space from the home office adjacent to the kitchen.
Small, Casual Dining Area Attached to Formal Dining Room
To expand the seating options in this kitchen, designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens created a small, casual table that connects to the larger, more formal one. This gives the homeowners the option of using the smaller table when they are home alone and simply want a casual meal or expanding their entertaining space, using both the larger table and the smaller table concurrently.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, to maximize the space in this kitchen, Joanna added a functional kitchen island to increase seating options and give the family more prep space for meals. Gray cabinets match the gray trim and molding from the rest of the open concept first floor, and rustic stools provide complementary style. A subway tile backsplash polishes off the space, finishing out the design.
Chic Subway Tile Backsplash in Industrial, Rustic Kitchen
A trio of industrial-style sconces provide task lighting over the kitchen sink and prep area. Black quartz countertops top the muted gray cabinets, while white subway tile creates a contrasting backsplash. Open shelving with wrought iron brackets keep dishes and mugs handy.
Industrial Shelves Over Stove Add Display and Storage Options
To create shelving that fit the style of the kitchen, designers of America's Most Desperate Kitchens added some wood shelves suspended by metal bars to create industrial style shelves above the stove in this bright kitchen space.
After walls were removed, this Fixer Upper kitchen has much more room. To maximize the functionality of this space, Chip and Joanna added a large kitchen island that added more counter and prep space, as well as gave the family a place to sit down for a casual meal. Joanna continued her rustic industrial style in the kitchen, painting the cabinets to match the trim and molding throughout the first floor. She also added industrial pendant lights, an industrial style sink and rustic industrial barstools to complete the look.
Wood and Metal Blend to Create Seamless Industrial Design
In this kitchen, designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens created an elegant, industrial space for these homeowners. The neutral color of the cabinets and countertops are offset by the blue backsplash that makes the space pop, while metal and wood blend together to create a seamless, industrial design.
Muted gray cabinets pair with black quartz countertops, while contrasting white quartz countertops top the 13-foot-long island. Quartz countertops offer the advantage of resistance to staining and are essentially maintenance free. A well-lit kitchen relies on sophisticated and layered lighting from multiple sources. In this case that includes recessed spots for dramatic accent, industrial-style pendants for concentrated task lighting and a trio of rustic sconces over the sink.
Instead of springing for a built-in island, consider a freestanding one made from recycled materials. Case in point: the Industrial Recycled High Bench Table, shown in Shabby Chic White, $1,999, designed by Will Marx for GHIFY. Handmade in Brisbane, Australia, of native Australian timber, the design was inspired by the architecture of Queensland. Says GHIFY, “This island is one of our signature designs, which has been hugely popular as a kitchen island for added counter space, as a high bench dining table for the eat-in kitchen and as a workbench/desk. It is a timeless industrial recycled styled table that can be custom-built to any size, color or finish. Each table comes with a 10-year warranty.”
Brick Wall Provides Definition to Industrial Kitchen
This kitchen was once small and closed in, so Anthony and John from America's Most Desperate Kitchens removed several walls, allowing them to expand the kitchen into the adjacent spaces, creating a larger, more functional area. An exposed brick partition, an ordinary wall that was cut down and cased in brick, remains to give the kitchen and living room spaces a little definition.
