A family of seven needs a lot of space, so to make the most of this kitchen's square footage, a custom island was designed around their dining table. With a banquette (made of easy-to-clean vinyl!) the family now had a spot to hang out and grab a snack or casual meal. Range: Wolf; Range hood: Sub Zero; Integrated fridge and freezer: Sub Zero; Lantern pendants: Entwined Oval Driftwood by Shades of Light; Countertops: Fantasy Brown by Arizona Tile
Two natural tree-trunk coffee tables are pushed together to form the centerpiece of a farmhouse-style living room. The coffee tables, along with a crisp linen couch, a pair of mid-century wicker chairs and decorative pillows rest atop a speckled gray and white carpet, creating a host of textures in the neutral room. In the kitchen, a shiplap island anchors the space, while carved, wooden barstools continue the natural feel from the living room.
As seen it on Love It or List It, this beautiful rustic kitchen now has a functional appeal for the family. With plenty of natural light coming in fro the stairs and the windows in the back of the house, the space has a light feeling. The natural wood elements in this kitchen, such as the kitchen island, the exposed beams and the kitchen table, help to bring the rustic style to live, while the muted green kitchen cabinets adds much needed storage space.
This family of five needed a lot of counter space for preparing their feasts but wanted to keep it sleek, classic, and space to enjoy all the high-end amenities, so the family added Viking appliances to their space to handle the needs of the large brood. The white Thassos countertops of the kitchen island are double thickness for additional durability for the family of five while adding the contemporary flair that the family was looking for.
An open wall leads into the dining room and creating a more open flow to the space. Bright white cabinets offer a subtle texture to the room against the sleek granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Lantern-like pendant lights illuminate the island and add a touch of country style influence to the design.
This homeowner's love for color does not stop in the living room; this kitchen is chock full of color. The wood floor has been painted blue and green with an argyle pattern. A red kitchen island and blue double ovens accent the space. In the back of the bookcases, wallpaper has been applied to add more color to the space. The shelves are dotted with colorful pots, pans and dishes for easy access as well as decoration.
As seen on season one of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson removed a wall between a cramped kitchen and extra bonus room in this century-old home to build a gorgeous, roomy eat-in kitchen stocked with modern amenities. The original kitchen was completed gutted to make room for custom white cabinets, a subway tile backsplash, an enormous island with attached dining table, and stainless steel appliances. Oiled-finished wood flooring and brass accents complete the room's traditional, antique look.
As seen on HGTV's hit show Love It or List It, Hilary's design for this kitchen opens up the space and makes it feel larger than the original floor plan. She adds storage to this space by using a kitchen island in the middle of the room. The neutral colors on the cabinets and windows are accented by a pop of color on the far wall. That color also helps to separate the eat-in area from the main part of the kitchen.
“Using black for interiors can be scary as it’s usually associated with being dark or depressing,” says designer Jodie Rosen. Her advice: “Using hits of black as an accent is a great way to elevate a space and emphasize elements of the design. In this case, we used black on the trim around the range to make the area a focal point and then repeated the black in the oversized fixtures, stools, and the metal detailing on the island.”
Textured tile, furniture-style cabinetry and a coffered ceiling team up to add dimension and interest to this traditional, oceanside kitchen. The room's open concept gives it a sweeping view over the dining room, living area, sunroom and broad back deck. Hardwood floors add warmth to the room, while an overall white palette gives it a casual and calm feel. A contrasting stain on the island was chosen to customize the space, ground the kitchen and add to its architectural interest.
In this open kitchen and dining area, the spaces are defined by a large kitchen island and a row of pendant lights. A white dining table, cream-colored sideboard and green-striped curtains lend French country style to the space. At the opposite end of the room, white columns subtly set off the living room.
This kitchen and dining space sits at one end of a very large great room with 20' ceilings at many points. A focal wall with black and white geometric tile grounds this kitchen and gives it warmth. It is a lot of pattern, but it is well balanced with the many white walls around it and it really works in this very modern farmhouse. The hints of brass create another visual pop to draw the eye toward the cozy island seating.
Before the renovation, this kitchen had little room for the young family who owned it to move around and cook together, so designers overhauled the floor plan, creating the space for a kitchen island. Designers kept the color palette light and neutral with white cabinets and trim, honed black pearl granite and white Caesarstone, making the space feel more open. They then added color with bright kitchen ware and bold counter stools that are vinyl and can easily be wiped clean.
This black and white kitchen showcases a sleek and modern sensibility with its minimalist approach. Designers at Design Platform selected very tall cabinets to complement the room's high ceilings and to add much-needed storage space. The room was able to accommodate larger accent pieces such as the artwork and pendant lights, as well as a larger island for additional seating. Matte porcelain tile, cove lighting and rift oak cabinets also help create this rich, modern look.
The scissor trusses in the double-vaulted great room of the HGTV Dream Home 2013 add a dramatic detail without interfering with the marsh views from the second floor loft. The selection of intense shades of blue — both in fabric and wall color — is, in part, interior designer Linda Woodrum's nod to island decor and interiors.
This eclectic kitchen boasts cabinetry in pure white and black. A black kitchen island is paired with vivid orange chairs complemented by unusual, glossy orange pendant lights. The large window over the sink provides a beautiful view of outdoor greenery, which is echoed by the forest green subway wall tiles in this thoroughly modern, and unforgettable, kitchen space.
The kitchen takes a colorful, industrial turn, showcasing Naomi’s fondness for metallics. The island is topped with an oxidized, steel countertop. The material is a unique twist on the usual granite or marble found in most kitchens. The steel top will patina over time. Its rough-hewn texture is also a pleasing contrast to the stainless steel refrigerator and brass elements in the kitchen. Cabinets in a gray-blue tone contrast with the brass pendant overhead. Naomi discovered the pair of vintage white bar stools and painted the legs gold for a finishing metallic touch.
Once Jillian removed the fireplace and wall separating the kitchen from the rest of the house, she added five feet to the kitchen. She then added tons of extra cabinet space for storage. The kitchen island and countertops give the family lots of prep space. The herringbone design on the backsplash of Calcutta marble makes the kitchen stand out.
