The dining room was once a narrow, closed off space with a tiered flooring separating this room from the rest of the house, so to maximize the home's potential and update its layout, Chip and Joanna removed the walls separating the dining room and living room and removed the tiered flooring. Now, the dining room is an elegant part of an open concept home whose flooring is all on one level. As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
With a green accent wall and four wire-backed stools in teal, this modern kitchen doesn't shy away from color. A large island sits front and center for quick meal prep and cleanup while still complementing the sleek modern appliances.
Crisp white walls, high ceilings and ample natural light make this open concept dining room feel breezy and bright. The magnificent chandelier, which hangs grandly above the dining table, creates a beautiful focal point for the space.
In the open concept design, the hardwood floors and white and wood design scheme help visually connect the kitchen and dining room. On the wall near the dining table, a school of fish are a whimsical nod to the home's beach location.
DINING ROOM, AFTER: The dining room was painted a light blue color to contrast with the dark blue hue in the adjacent kitchen. The doorway between the rooms was enlarged and given a top window detail. An industrial chandelier serves as the focal point of the room.
Three styles of wood, in the dining table, floor, and wall, come together with an unexpected result in this modern dining room and kitchen area. Floor to ceiling, beaded curtains are a soft touch in this spare and masculine space.
This light and bright dining room features an open layout that allows for easy transition to the living room and kitchen. A circular metal chandelier hangs above the black wooden dining set, while a sisal area rug is placed underneath. The exposed beam vaulted ceiling gives the room a larger appearance.
This light and bright dining room features neutral upholstered dining chairs positioned around a wood table. A metal chandelier hangs above, while exposed beam vaulted ceilings give the room an open look.
Creating separate zones within an open layout is simple, but making them feel at once distinct and connected can be more complicated, says designer Jodie Cooper. Here, she manages this delicate balance deftly, using material — a transition from the practical kitchen flooring to the warm wood in the eating space — and color: A soft blue-green accent wall helps differentiate (and add drama to) the dining area.
