“We’d liked that the kitchen was in good shape, but it was bland,” says Katie. All the oak cabinets needed for pep was a facelift, in the form of vivid green paint and brass hardware. Small-scale subway tile for the backsplash made the space seem bigger and brighter; ditto for the hip cement floor tile from Granada Tile. The pattern plays off the delicate print of the Thibaut-fabric Roman shade.
The homeowners wanted a unique kitchen space, so designers featured a hidden television inside the space's mirrored backsplash. The special dielectric mirror was designed and fabricated so that it can slide behind the built-in kitchen cabinets in case the television ever needed to be repaired. The home already had cast iron columns, so designers incorporated them into the home's design, giving the space a more industrial feel.
The bathroom is a private place, but open shelving can create the illusion of space in smaller square footage, and with a less weighty wallet hit than cabinets. A few drawers or covered baskets on high shelves can house your private items, and your colorful towels, pretty soaps and washes, and other bathroom decor don’t have to hide in a dark closet any longer!
The main part of this modern kitchen is elegant and functional. Plenty of cabinet space provides storage for the homeowners, while a large kitchen island provides extra counter space, as well as extra seating. To give the otherwise neutral space a pop of color, a red accent wall was added to make the space warm and inviting. State of the art, stainless steel appliances, pendant lighting and clear barstools give the space a modern flair.
A 48-inch wine bottle rack next to an upper cabinet in the butler’s pantry offers another storage option for wine or bottles of sparkling water. The butler’s pantry backsplash with deep emerald hexagon ceramic tiles with white non-sanded grout coordinates with the backsplash in the kitchen.
As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, the aim of this kitchen remodel was an updated farmhouse design, so designers left vintage elements, such as the glass paneled cabinets and exposed brick, in the space. Then, they added a reclaimed wood door to cover the entrance to the pantry. Updates in the space include a durable, quartz countertop, a white subway tile backsplash, and modern, stainless steel appliances.
As seen on Home Town, the Carson’s Laurel, MS house had a plain dining room lacking style before renovations by hosts Ben and Erin Napier. After the renovations, the Carson's Laurel, MS dining room now features newly painted gray walls with a white wainscoting, updated blinds, and drapes, a new china cabinet along with new drop cloth chair covers that host Erin Napier created.
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.
A recess in the island provides for a handy spot for the dog's water bowl. Built-in cabinetry on the island creates extra storage and matches the cabinets lining the wall. A subway-tile backsplash brings a nice pattern to the smooth finishes in the kitchen's design, and hardwood flooring adds warmth.
In the sitting room, Chip and Joanna, hosts of HGTV's hit show Fixer Upper, blended a modern design with industrial details to create this unique space. The wainscoting was removed in the space and the walls were painted a warm beige, while modern slate floors, a clean, white sofa and simple, linen curtains finish the modern design. To bring stylish storage into the space, Joanna added industrial cabinets and shelving to complete the room.

Kelly and Co. Design created a contemporary-style bar in this renovated barn entertainment space without losing the ambiance of its rustic surroundings. A black granite countertop and zinc bar top sit atop wood cabinets and stainless steel fixtures. LED backlighting, which can be changed according to mood, showcases the bar selections. The bar features a keg tap, a wine fridge, a dishwasher, a refrigerator, and ample storage for glassware and other serving pieces.
One of the luxury amenities the homeowners wanted in their space was an electric grill, so designers installed a custom area to meet their needs. Rich toned wood cabinets give the homeowners a place to store necessities, while the concealed ventilation system rushes smoke out of the home and into the outdoors.
During the renovation of a home in Greenwich, Conn., Anthony DeRosa of DeRosa Builders was able to incorporate a wet bar into the design of the family room without adding on or stealing space from the seating area. “We fit the bar into a little-used closet,” says DeRosa. “We had cabinets custom built for the space. The biggest challenge was finding a sink small enough to fit within the tight dimensions.” Mission, accomplished.
The homeowners wanted an all white kitchen that is stylish and functional for their family. To achieve this goal, designers added a bit of texture with custom cabinetry, and a splash of glimmer with a metallic and white, penny round tile backsplash. For function, plenty of storage was added with ceiling height cabinets, dual kitchen islands and plenty of counter space. These elements blend together to give the homeowners the kitchen of their dreams.
This long kitchen has had only minor adjustments since we moved in including repainted cabinets, a new floor, countertop and paint and the addition of a seafoam green salvaged vintage sink. Local art above the refrigerator by artist Cooper Sanchez dominates the space along with a vintage movie poster from my husband's collection.
The design of this home gym is kept simple and clean, allowing for plenty of space and focus for a good workout. The machines are surrounded with open floor space for a safe environment. Glass French doors can enclose the room while still providing a view into the living area. Wooden cabinets keep accessories stored easily and out of sight.
This bright kitchen features a pairing of white and brown wood cabinets with white stone countertops and several shelving options. Pendant lights hang above the kitchen island, which has a sink and built-in dishwasher. Red accents throughout the kitchen tie in the sofa that can be seen in the adjacent living room.
