This kitchen has been reconfigured to take advantage of the new open concept floor plan. A large kitchen island provides more counter space, as well as doubles as a kitchen table with stools running underneath. The sliding door was reduced to a sink under the window, allowing the galley kitchen to run along the whole wall. Stainless steel appliances, pendant and recessed lighting, and a neutral color scheme create a clean modern look to the kitchen. New flooring was added throughout the whole first floor.
Removing a wall and storage closet opened up the space providing a clear view to the dining room and leaving space for the addition of a large kitchen peninsula and plenty of lower-cabinet storage. A small pass-through window opens onto a newly updated breakfast nook.
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.
