Who needs a dedicated formal dining room when an open plan kitchen can serve all functional purposes? The dining area in this lovely open kitchen is airy and sophisticated with its glass-top table, contemporary upholstered dining chairs, and old-world chandelier, but best of all, it features an inset fireplace that helps set the mood for conversation and fun. Design by AB Design Elements.
Bright paint, a unique light fixture, modern backsplash, glass cabinet doors, stainless steel appliances,farmhouse sink, and stone countertops give this kitchen a fresh start, as seen on HGTV’s Fixer Upper.
Everywhere you look in this beautiful, AB Design Elements kitchen, the eyes feast upon an interesting, bold architectural feature that works together for a comfortable design. The open kitchen plan allows for a combination of design elements, such as infusing touches of rusticity with exposed beams, wood trim, cable lighting and stainless appliances against the traditional aspects of the cabinetry and floor.
The open floor plan in this kitchen creates a perfect entertaining space. The tiered island anchors the kitchen and provides a place to sit while cooking dinner. The pillars across the room provide a visual break between the living spaces while adding architectural interest.
The kitchen feels bigger than it is thanks to the open floor plan that connects to the outdoors. Sleek, white cabinets and a matching island mix with neutral tones and a warm brown to create a stunning and timeless design.
As seen on HGTV's House Hunters Renovation, with the help of interior designer Jorge Da Rosa, the home owner's created an open, functional kitchen-to-living-room space perfect for entertaining. Warm-toned brown walls and medium-dark hardwood floors contrast with the crisp white ceiling and grey and white kitchen cabinets. Occasional splashes of color, like the green tiled backsplash and the yellow inside the cabinets add contrast and visual interest.
Easily move from kitchen to dining room while still maintaining separate spaces in this semi-open set up. Contrasting color palettes help to distinguish the rooms further and offer interest in each area.
Ample countertop and preparation space make this a perfect kitchen in which to cook, bake and entertain. All-white fixtures and tile keep the space looking clean; yellow paint adds a sunny splash of summer. Open shelves are a great way to showcase favorite accessories and glassware, and also break up the monotony of closed kitchen cabinets.
