She also added industrial pendant lights, an industrial style sink and rustic industrial barstools to complete the look.

Before Anthony and John got a hold of this space, it lacked storage and a cohesive design, so the Kitchen Cousins have added rows of cabinets to help with storage and elegant details, such as the newly painted door and built in spice rack, to create a functional, pleasing design. As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens.
The kitchen, living room and dining room are all part of one big, open-plan space in this luxurious Tennessee estate. Broad doorways open the home's interior to its party-ready outdoor spaces. Finishes are sleek and neutral, and accented by dramatic Swarovski crystal light fixtures.
To create a unique for this America's Most Desperate Kitchens Renovation, John and Anthony used black, white and gray hexagonal tiles to create a striking floor and ceiling height backsplash. The tile floor spills into the living room, where wood cutouts connect the kitchen to the renovated living room.
Even though the kitchen space is small, designers wanted to create an open feel without sacrificing functionality, so they added a slender kitchen island with intuitive cabinet design and a long countertop for plenty of storage and prep space.
Belonging to one of the owner's grandfathers, the kitchen on this 1950s home had a small kitchen that was awkwardly configured and separated from the rest of the house, so designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens removed the walls closing the space in and replaced the outdated design with an elegant, sophisticated one.
A place for everything and everything in its place is the design motto of this elegant country kitchen. With lower cabinets on three sides of the space, upper cabinets scattered throughout and a rustic, storage island, this small kitchen has plenty of storage space to keep the homeowners organized.
The homeowners love to entertain, so designers wanted to create a space that was functional for them. To do this, they made sure to keep the space feeling light and open by raising the arched doorway that separates the kitchen and living room space and removing the door that previously connected the rooms, creating a clear line of from the kitchen into the living room. They added a peninsula that provides seating, keeping the space functional, but they also included a small area to the left of the breakfast bar that acts as a sort of pass through, making food service between the rooms easy.
Open shelving in this small kitchen space gives homeowners a space to store and show off their dishes or cookware. The rich color of the wood adds warmth to the bright space and complements the warm, blue backsplash that runs along the kitchen walls.
