This contemporary kitchen combines dark wood with stainless steel for a sleek and modern finish. Angles and dimension were created using glass tiling, while wood cabinetry was updated with a clean, unadorned finish.
Gorgeous angled windows fill this bright and airy kitchen with lots of natural light. A pair of upholstered wood barstools provide an eat-in spot at the countertop, and a nearby window seat offers additional seating (or storage). Bold orange pendant lights and beautiful striped hardwood floors add finishing touches to the design.
Form meets function in these stylish leather bar seats which are as comfortable as they are chic. Enlarged black and white prints of flowers make up a simple but striking vintage-inspired gallery wall.
This is a traditional kitchen with a spin -- the granite countertop unifies the colors in the antiqued lower cabinets and warm-toned upper cabinets. Pendant lights hang over the small, eat-in bar and a glass backsplash makes the cooktop a focal point.
When the retractable stainless steel and glass panel is closed over the staircase, sleek metal barstools are placed on top to provide seating at the bar. The see-through panel creates a funky sensation underfoot while standing or sitting in the space.
This renovation included opening up the dining and kitchen spaces to allow free flow between the two rooms. A breakfast bar was also added to provide extra seating for casual dining. Brown quartz countertops and a mosaic metallic and blue backsplash provide touches of natural, earth-toned color.
Connecting the kitchen and the dining room by tearing down a wall made way for open eating areas at the new breakfast bar and around the table, as seen on HGTV's Love It or List It. A built-in bench by the window provides extra seating without taking up extra space.
The espresso color of this kitchen's cabinetry spills over into the living space through its use in sophisticated bar seating and geometric bookshelf. Details like marble counter top, chic modern faucet and intriguing glass pendant lights create a high-end luxury within the small space.
This modern dining room with an open floor plan is perfect for entertaining with an oversized banquette that seats 10 and bar area. Floor to ceiling windows offer a stunning panoramic view of the city skyline creating a perfect backdrop.
Textured columns create a room division for this stylish media room while still keeping the design open and spacious. A row of black barstools provide an extra row of seating at the white countertop. Multicolored glass sculptures balance on a glass panel adding pops of bright color and artistic detail to the room.
A neutral color palette allows the rich hardwood floors and crisp white cabinetry to stand out in this open, transitional kitchen. A trio of dark wood barstools provides an eat-in space to enjoy a casual meal.
Transitioning from one area to the next is seamless and stylish in the open design of this modern home. Pink orchids placed in each section bring a cohesive decorative feel. A modern white marble island has an elevated bar with black leather barstools to create an eat-in feel. Stainless steel details in the kitchen are echoed in the back rests of the dining chairs.
As seen on Love It or List It, Too, designer Jillian Harris was inspired by Scandinavian design for Kelly and Steve's kitchen remodel. She used clean lines, ample amounts of white, and small pops of subdued color throughout the space. She gave the family plenty of seating with the breakfast bar and the large farmhouse style table in the dining area just off the kitchen.
