Entertaining's a breeze with a dining room that flows right into the open kitchen. Against the window, four cross-backed stools and a long counter can be used as a breakfast bar or as extra seating when the owners host parties.
In order to add a stove, cabinets and appliances in the kitchen, the french doors had to be removed and a wall need to be added. Because valuable light was being taken away, the Kitchen Cousins added two skylights into the ceiling. After tearing the dining room wall down and turning the dining room into the kitchen, there is a whole new flow and life to the atmosphere and energy of the kitchen and dining room area. What once was a cold empty ding room is now a large kitchen that opens to a large dining room.
Because the living room flows right into the open-concept kitchen, the designers wanted the two spaces to look cohesive. Thus, three rattan stools line the marble island, with metal legs that match the buffet, caged chandelier and other details.
This breezy, inviting home boasts an open concept design for seamless entertaining and living. The kitchen flows into the dining and living areas, so the chef can prepare a meal as guests mingle nearby.
With the kitchen moved back to the dining room, and the old fridge and cabinets taken away, the width of the dining room area feels as though it has doubled in size. And where there use to be a fridge and old cabinets, there is now a beautiful stone wall with a wine tap that sits above a stylish buffet cabinet, and gives the home a Tuscan feel as well. Design as seen on HGTV's hit show Kitchen Cousins.
Featured on HGTV's America's Most Desperate Kitchens, both the kitchen and dining room areas were small and closed off, so designers John and Anthony took out part of the kitchen wall, creating a bar area that opens both spaces making them feel larger.
This combined kitchen, living space and dining room are perfectly coordinated in this coastal design theme.
Subtle periwinkles, blues and seaglass tones dominate the space, even repeating the seaglass color on the island lighting, which was painted to match the color palette in the space and bring in a pop of color in the island area. Warm, toasty white oak shiplap was chosen to balance the practical floor tile that would take all the abuse from kid traffic.
As seen on HGTV's Love It Or List It Too, Designer Jillian Harris completely transformed what was a dark kitchen into an open concept kitchen and dining room. Jillian removed the entire wall between the old kitchen and dining room, creating space for an island with a live edge 100 year old fir countertop. Jillian painted the dining room Siberian Snowflake and installed American Walnut Authentic engineered wood flooring.
John and Anthony, from America's Most Desperate Kitchen, took a small, outdated kitchen and opened it into the living room to create an open, contemporary space that is perfect for cooking, dining and entertaining.
This open dining room and kitchen boasts some mid-century flare with the black barstools, wooden cabinets and upholstered dining chairs. Contemporary details, like the dining table and light fixtures, bring it into the 21st century.
As seen on HGV's Love It or List It, this renovated kitchen is missing the wall that used to separate it from the dining room. Now, with the wall gone, the kitchen feels much more spacious, and there is a greater flow to the house.
John and Anthony, hosts of HGTV's Kitchen Cousins, have opened up the Sosa's cramped kitchen and dining room space. The wall between the kitchen and dining room has been mostly removed, but the load bearing portion remains. The fireplace has been removed to modernize the space, and the stone backsplash in the kitchen ties perfectly into the stone table top on the dining room table. That light gray color is complimented nicely by warm, rich wood throughout the kitchen and dining room.
Large abstract art adds color and creates a beautiful focal point in this contemporary dining room and kitchen. A glass-top table is surrounded by sleek black-and-white chairs, while modern black barstools provide more eating space.
