Eric and Helene's kitchen is a beautiful medley of old and new with salvaged wood used to craft the base of the cement-topped cabinets which came from an 1800s farmhouse and were sourced at Lifecycle Building Center.
A natural wood slab dining table pairs with neutral upholstered chairs to create a chic dining space just outside the kitchen. The home's open floor plan allows for easy transition from the kitchen to the rest of the home — a traditional area rug helps delineate the designated dining area from the adjoining living space.
Floor-to-ceiling windows seamlessly blend the indoors and out, where an open floor plan kitchen connects to a mid-century dining room. A simple wooden table is surrounded by chic Eames chairs, while an elegant chandelier adds a traditional touch to the space.
The main dining room in this home is placed between the dropped living room and the kitchen. This traditional gathering point becomes the heart of the home with natural wood tones and exposed beams, allowing for dinner guests to have a clear view of the ground floor.
Tumbled stone tile laid in a random, intricate pattern connects the kitchen, dining room and landing of this transitional California home. White walls and clean lines are balanced by rustic finishes, including the dining table's weathered wood-plank top. Wide windows are dressed with traditional draw draperies for privacy.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, Chip and Jo turned a once disastrous room into a bright, clean kitchen with new cabinets, wood floors, Carrera marble countertops and light gray paint with white trim. The wall that once separated the kitchen and dining room was removed, creating an open space.
The spacious, open floor plan of the kitchen provides plenty of seating and makes it easy to entertain a crowd. Island seating means guests can hang out while dinner is prepped, and wood cabinets in a soft finish keep the space feeling calm and organized.
Just past the kitchen, this spacious, casual dining space features chic, gray chairs, oak flooring and a drum pendant light. Built-in white cabinets provide ample storage for dishware and serving tools. To finish off the design, dark wood trim adds contrast to the bright, neutral space.
The designers wanted an open floor plan, but also one in which different areas (dining, living and kitchen) would feel somewhat separated and unique. Single wood beams, instead of more traditional decorative trusses, were installed on the ceiling so as not to have anything competing with the arched window.
Just after the entry but before we get to the living space, is the heart of the home, our kitchen. No compromises were made in this surprisingly expansive kitchen designed by Randy Jones of Incredible Tiny Homes whose motto is "Choose Tiny, Live Free." Not only is there a stained planked wood ceiling, it also houses a full-size refrigerator, range and farmhouse sink. I’m especially drawn to the way the gray upper cabinets compliment the blue lower cabinets against the wood butcher block counters. Last but not least, the ladder takes us to the tiny home master.
This spacious kitchen features a richly-hued breakfast nook with a neutral round table and red plaid upholstered wooden chairs. A vintage metal chandelier with mini lampshades hangs overhead. Glass front cabinets with a diamond wire mesh pattern are paired with a red accent wall and metallic crown molding.
This beautiful, eco modern kitchen is the focal point for the house. With natural elements, such as the live edge wood shelving, the natural green and yellow of the walls and the wood trim around the doors and windows, and the modern touches like the clean lines and smooth edges of the cabinets and the countertop, this design perfectly encompasses the homeowners' desire for a kitchen that reflects their love for nature as well as their attraction to the modern design style.
The homeowners love to entertain, so a large sectional that can seat up to seven people comfortably is centered on the flat-screen TV and traditional fireplace. The barstools in the kitchen swivel so they can be used as extra seating for the living room. White wood throughout the space creates a light and airy feeling.
This home features an open plan design, transitional furnishings, and vaulted ceilings to create the perfect place to entertain. Hardwood floors extend from the deep blue kitchen island to the neutral area rug in the living space with a velvet sectional sofa. In between, the dining room features traditional seating beside the pull-up breakfast bar with wooden bar chairs.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines removed the wall between the homeowners' kitchen and dining room and they installed a natural wood support beam in it's place. All new white cabinets and black marble countertops bring a modern look to the kitchen, and two hanging globe light fixtures illuminate the breakfast bar. A new stainless steel range and vent hood is surrounded by a beveled subway tile backsplash.
While the bottom of the island and the surrounding lower cabinets have a deep charcoal gray color with a wood grain look, the upper cabinets have a white linen finish that keeps things light. “I didn’t want to create a dark kitchen, but I wanted some depth,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “By keeping the darker finish below, it anchors the room visually and then adding the contrasting white up top keeps the room from darkening.”
The large tan sectional in this transitional living room provides ample seating for a large crowd. The open space allows people to visit and socialize between the kitchen and living room areas while the white-beamed ceiling adds a traditional note to the space. A large wood coffee table fills the space in front of the sofa for a cozy, sitting area effect.
This large wood entertainment center, featuring a a glass-paned hutch filled with books and a TV, is made from recycled elements. The door of the entertainment center came from a mansion in upstate New York, and the bottom part is made from inexpensive kitchen cabinets. The pieces are gilded and aged to achieve a heirloom effect.
