Joanna recommended a full kitchen redesign, opening it up and giving it a more central location and better views. The space that is now the kitchen was, in the former layout, a craft room and mechanical closet.
As seen on Beach Flip, contestants Sarah and Nick opened up the first floor by removing the wall between the kitchen and the dining room at the Gulf Dreams condo. A striped feature wall adds color and pattern to the otherwise-neutral space.

As seen on Beach Flip, contestants Melissa and Mahdi completely gutted the existing kitchen and removed a dividing wall to open the space to the living room and dining area at the renovated Coastal Calm condo. They installed new cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a new tile backsplash.
