The owners of this home dreamed of having an open concept space, but they didn't know how to make their dreams a reality. Enter Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines. The Gainses removed the walls that used to separate the common spaces of the home, opening up the heart of house. Then, they added cool features to make each space unique-a custom table for the dining room, a new fire place for the living room, double islands for the kitchen-creating the home of this family's dreams.
The kitchen had a four foot hallway from the foyer to the garage on the right side which was removed to accommodate a full refrigerator and freezer and also open up adequate space to fit two 100” islands.
As seen on Vacation House For Free, the previous door was knocked down and the wall was opened up to allow light to flow into the rest of the house. The wall was evened out, which allowed for the vaulted ceiling in the dining space.
To create an open plan first floor, Karen and Mina, hosts of HGTV's show, Good Bones, removed the walls separating the rooms of the first floor. This allows for design continuity, as well as allowing homeowners to maximize their entertaining space.
Disappearing pocket-door walls open this dining space up to the outdoors. The space features an exposed beam ceiling, wide-plank wood flooring, a woven area rug and a large table with upholstered dining chairs.
This contemporary dining room features an exposed beam ceiling, black built-in cabinets and a removable wall that opens to a patio outside. The dining table rests on a woven rug and provides seating for 10 in upholstered dining chairs.
To create an open feeling throughout the home, Chip and Joanna, hosts of HGTV's Fixer Upper, removed the wall between the breakfast area and the sitting room and created a pass through between the kitchen and dining room for easy serving. Then, they carried the beige wall color throughout the house creating warmth and design continuity between spaces.
As seen on HGV's Love It or List It, the new kitchen island in what used to be the dining room, and the wall between the two rooms has been demolished to expand the feel of the spaces and add functionality and flow to the space.
The removal of walls has allowed for more space between the new island and the other side of the kitchen, giving the family the space to all be in the kitchen together. Brand new counter tops brighten up the space and give it a clean feel. As seen on HGTV's Buying and Selling With the Property Brothers.
This modern living room features floor-to-ceiling glass wall panels that provide a great view of Phoenix. Some walls can be moved for access to the porch outside. Modern seating includes built-in shelving for displaying accessories.
As seen on Good Bones, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak transformed a duplex into a single family residence. To make the space feel open and large, the pair removed walls creating a clear line of sight throughout the first floor.
