The new peninsula, with granite countertop and pendant lighting provides the homeowners with casual seating at their new breakfast bar. To create a clear line of sight from this space into the living room, designers John and Anthony removed the wall separating the two rooms, creating an open, inviting space. As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens.
To create the open concept home the homeowners hoped for, Chip and Joanna, of HGTV's Fixer Upper, removed several walls to open the space up, creating a clear line of sight from the kitchen to the dining room. To connect the spaces, Joanna chose gray trim and molding to run throughout, creating an industrial feel for the spaces.
Previously, the kitchen and living rooms were separated from each other, but when Chip and Joanna of HGTV's Fixer Upper redesigned the space, they moved the fireplace to open up the spaces. Now, the fireplace serves as a feature that makes the living space nice and cozy, and there is a clear line of sight from the eat-in kitchen to the bright, elegant living space.
The beautifully remodeled eat-in kitchen has an open concept design that allows the kitchen and breakfast nook to share natural light. The design also increases the functionality of the space with a peninsula that allows for easy food serving and a clear line of sight that allows for the visual connectedness of the two areas, making this a great place for entertaining or a quiet breakfast with the family.
To give more space to the living room, Karen and Mina, of HGTV's Good Bones, removed the walls that used to enclose the space. Now that the barriers are gone, this home has an open concept first floor with a line of sight from the living room into the dining room and kitchen. Each of these spaces, then received an elegant, contemporary design, creating a contemporary, updated space.
The bright, sunshine yellow of the remodeled Tudor kitchen is carried through to the dining room that is directly adjacent to it. To make the space more open, designer removed the wall separating the two spaces, creating a clear line of sight from one space into another. As a nod to the historic home's Tudor style, designers kept the exposed beams on the ceiling of the dining room, and brought in dark wood furniture to complete the design.
This modern, elegant space has magnificent views of the Boston Commons and the city of Boston. The massive floor to ceiling windows give this room a clear line of sight to all the city's finest attractions while letting in plenty of natural light. A sophisticated, neutral color palette, with honey tones and hints of green, add a natural, soothing undertone to the space, giving the family a fantastic place to enjoy their views and unwind after a long day.
The homeowners wanted an open concept home with plenty of natural light, so designers created a space that left each room open to the next, creating a clear line of sight through all of the home's common spaces. For natural light, they took advantage of the existing windows and skylight by using a black and white color palette that would reflect the light from the outside, giving the space a natural glow.
Kortney and David knocked out the home's existing walls to create one open, visually and physically connected space where three separate, closed off spaces had been. They even opened the staircase to allow natural light to flow through this space as well as the kitchen, dining room and living room. The removal of these walls creates a clear line of sight from the front door through to the kitchen and back again, keeping the home's first floor feeling light, bright and open.
The functionality of this country kitchen lies in its open concept. From the kitchen island, there is a clear line of sight through to the dining area, which means that the transportation of food will be a snap. The large kitchen island provides plenty of storage, and with a large countertop, it also provides plenty of prep space. Once it is prepared, food can be carried straight into the dining room with nothing to obstruct the path, making this kitchen not only elegant and peaceful, but also functional.
The first floor called for a modern, open concept design with a clear line of sight from one space into the others. Even though all the spaces would be connected, designers wanted to make sure a clear delineation existed between rooms, so they used the few walls that exist in the space to create that visual separation. The kitchen is nestled in the opening of two walls, and while it can be seen from the dining and living areas, is clearly separate from them. The dining area is just in front of the kitchen, and the living room is off to the side of those spaces, physically connected, but visually separate.
