Form follows function in the HGTV Green Home 2010 kitchen, where a tower support column that bears 18,000 pounds of weight is incorporated into the kitchen design on top of the island's ruby red CaesarStone natural quartz countertop.
Marble tile floor surrounds a decorative circular floor panel with deep green tile adding color to the neutral foyer design. Support columns create a solid frame for the space leading out into the house and down the open hallway. A curved staircase is based in the foyer further connecting the enchanting space to the house beyond.
Brick flooring grounds this light, neutral front porch design. White columns support the porch cover and keep the space open to the surroundings. Black planters match the black window shutters and red accent pieces add a final touch of color.
A soft siding color is contrasted with black shutters and white support columns. The brick from the walkway continues onto the covered porch with outdoor sitting space. The healthy grass yard gives off a natural, colorful glow.
The front porch was designed to look like an extension to the home. The new stone terrace matches the brick on the home. The terrace is covered with copper roof and held up with 5 hand painted columns. The Moroccan decorative lights dance in the wind and invite guests into the home. It was finished off with a new wooden door and sidelights.
The column in this kitchen could not be moved as it was a critical support element. So, to help it more harmoniously fit into the space, the designer wrapped the column in the same veneer as the cabinets.
The exposed architectural elements give this dining room an industrial flare and interest. This dining room design boasts exposed beams, pickled wood floors, a support column with stone detail and a high ceiling with tin tiles and molding.
Untreated wood frames this kitchen space with an interesting shape created by the underside of the stairs and support columns. An industrial-size stainless steel refrigerator and stacked double oven are fitted into the wood. Long black countertops and open storage complete the rustic look.
As seen on Fixer Upper, this home's outside appearance was transformed by adding an all-new facade with post-and-beam construction, a full wraparound porch, new metal roof and natural wood columns and support beams.
An exciting cypress wood trellis supported by cast corinthian columns conceal a rainfall feature which cascades into a chic, glass-tiled basin. Designed as a focal point, this crowning feature also serves as a sound buffer from neighbors home.
A mix of adirondack and rocking chairs are lined up on this long covered porch for a quiet and inviting sitting space. White columns support the cover and look lovely against the wood flooring and thick, green shrubs. Textured siding blends beautifully with the design.
