The kitchen is the heart of any home, and for these Kansas homeowners, this space is no exception. The warm tones of the backsplash and the cabinets in the space make the kitchen inviting, while the large window over the kitchen sink allows plenty of natural light into the space to make it brighter. Modern bar stools under a large island give the family a place to gather and prepare their food and make their memories.
Hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines completely transformed the Jonklaas's kitchen by removing the wall to the dining room and creating a more open flow to the space. They decided to keep the original cabinets, but to paint them bright white and to add new hardware. Wood floors, granite countertops, a natural stone backsplash and stainless appliances were installed. The outdated wallpaper was removed and the walls were painted light blue. Two modern pendant light fixtures illuminate a new kitchen island, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
A window breakfast nook allows natural light to flood this kitchen highlighting the bright atmosphere of the white walls, cabinets and backsplash.
