This spacious living room and kitchen, featured on the HGTV series Million Dollar Rooms, incorporates stunning vaulted ceilings with exposed bamboo beams and an elegant chandelier. The living room features a neutral sofa and armchairs, while the kitchen has an island with bar stool seating. The open nature of the floor plan makes it easy to transition between the two spaces.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, a beautiful and functional new kitchen island looks out into the living room of this open plan main floor. Taking full advantage of the small space, Sarah packed a large sink, a second stainless steel oven and plenty of extra storage into the island's design. Two support beams, accented by gorgeous antique white corbels, are all that remain of the wall that once separated the kitchen from the living area.
Paneled walls add structure, dimension and a bit of modern panache to the living room of this charming New York farmhouse. During the historic home's full-scale renovation, the design team raised ceiling heights, opened up the floor plan and updated the house with a contemporary color palette and modern furnishings, like the sofa and chairs in this comfortable, livable space.
The Klingshirn residence after the kitchen and living area renovation by licensed contractor Chip Wade in Atlanta, GA. The renovation included removing a number of walls to give the floor plan a circular and more open layout, but also respecting the era in which the house was built.

This kitchen by designer Mark Dutka in his own home near the Northern California coast was designed to reflect the colors of the local sky, sand and forests. A gorgeous sky blue accent wall gives depth to this small, open-plan modern kitchen. Wood beam ceilings and saltillo tile floors offer a nature-inspired contrast to the metal and gray. Halogen pendant lights suspended from an overhead support above the counter peninsula offer a creative lighting solution.
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.
The renovation of this Nashville, TN kitchen began with opening up the claustrophobic floor plan and adding a large island for the young family to live and work around. Then, designers added a neutral color palette with pops of color from the kitchen ware and vinyl teal counter stools. Finally, doors were painted black to add some drama and architectural interest to a space that lacked both things before the renovation.
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.
