The openness of the kitchen and the living room keep the two spaces functional and connected, allowing the people in the kitchen to be able to interact with those in the living room. This aspect of the home makes these two rooms perfect for entertaining or everyday meal prep.

True to form, this adobe-style home features curved archways instead of squared off halls. In the dining room, these architectural details are accentuated by romantic, hand-painted lines, which helps draw the eye to the butler's pantry and the kitchen on the other side.
The round dining table acts as an extension of the living room. The design utilizes floor poufs and wooden blocks that double as extra seating.

Neutral walls work with the small basement windows to keep this space feeling bright. The open floor plan connecting the living room and doing room leaves the room feeling even more spacious.

As featured on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, before John and Anthony redesigned this home, the spaces felt closed in and separate, but when the Kitchen Cousins revamped the home's common spaces, they took out half of the wall separating the kitchen from the dining room and living room. This connected all three spaces physically and visually.

The open floor plan and monochromatic white look accentuates the spacious, bright look of this kitchen.

After removing half of the wall to the kitchen and updating the fireplace the living room has a welcoming, open feel. Angela can now cook and entertain without disappearing behind kitchen walls as seen on Fixer Upper.
To create an open feel between the dining room, living room and kitchen, French doors that separated the living room and dining room were removed and a pass through connecting the kitchen and dining room was added, making the spaces flow together. To encourage the flow, designers replaced outdated wallpaper with a warm beige color throughout the house.
