Featured on HGTV's America's Most Desperate Kitchens, both the kitchen and dining room areas were small and closed off, so designers John and Anthony took out part of the kitchen wall, creating a bar area that opens both spaces making them feel larger.
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 Gaspar's new kitchen has been completely transformed with new cabinetry, appliances, and wood flooring. The doorway between the kitchen and dining room is now wider and a window was cut to create a breakfast bar in the living area on the other side of the half wall, creating a more open feel, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.

This rustic-chic Martha's Vineyard home plays hard, and its streamlined kitchen works hard, too. White cabinetry lines the bottom half of three walls, while open shelving above offers stylish storage space. Exposed beams on the ceiling add to the room's rustic flair.
This lovely kitchen uses light and dark contrasts and interesting shapes to create rich visual interest. Honey-colored wood shelves and countertops leap out from a backdrop of white cabinets and blue walls. The pendants are silvery half moons, a gentle counterpoint to the room's many crisp angles.

This minimalist mid century modern kitchen features medium grain wood cabinets paired with polished concrete floors. A professional refrigerator is built into the cabinets, while a half wall allows you to peek into the adjacent room.
The living room needed fun, durable seating to accommodate the family's teenage son and his friends, so designers added a tough, blue sectional and faux green leather ottoman that doubles as a coffee table. To provide display shelves, shelves were built into the half-wall separating the kitchen and dining room from the living room. These shelves are made of dark, rich wood, which, along with the white walls, ties this space into the rest of this family's 1920s Spanish home.
