When guests enter this space through the red French door, they are surrounded by wood accents, exposed beams, shiplap and timeless, rustic appeal of the guest cottage. To make this oasis feel a bit more modern, designers brought in marble countertops and stainless steel appliances to give the kitchen the luxury amenities of home within this garage, guest apartment.
As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, the aim of this kitchen remodel was an updated farmhouse design, so designers left vintage elements, such as the glass paneled cabinets and exposed brick, in the space. Then, they added a reclaimed wood door to cover the entrance to the pantry. Updates in the space include a durable, quartz countertop, a white subway tile backsplash, and modern, stainless steel appliances.
The design of the water feature is on the same axis as the front door. It is a single piece of basalt that is core drilled in the center. This allows water to run down all four sides of the stone. The concrete planter is held 6” above the stone with 4 steel rods. Landscape lighting illuminates the waterfall spouts that decorate the feature.
Designers wanted the kitchen to be both elegant and functional, so they continued the modern look into this space. Clean lines and sharp edges keep the room looking clean and neat, while the blue-gray tile and rich hardwood floor make the space warm and inviting. To accommodate the homeowners' everyday as well as entertaining needs, designers included plenty of prep and storage space with counters and cabinets on two walls of the space and a large kitchen island with an eat in option. To add to the elegance of the space, designers added stainless steel appliances and stainless steel pendant lights, giving the room a little extra sparkle that highlights the natural light that comes in through the door and windows.
To make way for a large walk-in shower, the existing tub was removed. Rectangular porcelain tile with a bamboo effect is installed vertically to add visual height in the shower. A contemporary shower panel with contrasting natural bamboo and sleek stainless steel creates an eye-catching display. The glass block window streams natural light through the door-less shower entrance and can be seen from the bedroom.
Imagine how easy it would be to cook a meal in this contemporary kitchen that is a testament to a functionality and clean lines. From the modern stainless steel gas range to the gorgeous black granite countertops on pristine white cabinetry, this kitchen allows couples to work side by side creating their culinary masterpieces in style. The small banquette area in the corner of the room offers craftsman-style molding that is echoed in the window and door trim.
ESCAPE Vista's open floor plan features a light, airy kitchen that contains all the comforts of home. Maple cabinetry offers plenty of storage in this tiny home, while modern, stainless steel appliances offer all the conveniences to which homeowners are accustomed-a sink, under-counter fridge/freezer and a cooktop. At the rear of the space, the kitchen and dining area leads to a full bathroom that is separated from the living space by a solid core pine door that has been frosted for privacy.
As seen on HGTV's America's Most Desperate Kitchens, a closet at the opposite end of the kitchen was converted into a pantry and is concealed by a custom barn door. The sink remains in the same place, but it the old, lackluster sink was replaced with a stainless steel apron front sink with a brushed finished. All the appliances in the space, including the sink, were upgraded to pro-level appliances, creating a chef's kitchen out of an outdated, cramped space.
This kitchen has been reconfigured to take advantage of the new open concept floor plan. A large kitchen island provides more counter space, as well as doubles as a kitchen table with stools running underneath. The sliding door was reduced to a sink under the window, allowing the galley kitchen to run along the whole wall. Stainless steel appliances, pendant and recessed lighting, and a neutral color scheme create a clean modern look to the kitchen. New flooring was added throughout the whole first floor.
As seen on Love It Or List It, Too the room was previously open on the garden facing wall, but had a shoebox for a kitchen and an underused bathroom. Jillian's solution was to blow out the bathroom entirely and insert a 30ft steel beam to support the already vaulted ceiling. With an extra 10 inches of space found in the renovation Jillian's team added a coffered ceiling to delineate the space adding intimacy and definition. The grid prints are of traditional Italian hunting scenes often found in family homes of Italian expats and are a nod to the grid design of the ceiling. A custom sectional was designed so that the homeowners could entertain many guests and take in a football game or two. The wrought iron wall hanging is actually from Egypt, but Jillian felt it gave a country feeling to the home. The components console is custom made. New french doors have been added to the patin entrance and a new gas insert sits on the far wall made of Venetian plaster and box posts, designed to draw the eye upwards into the grand vaulted space.
