Big, Open Space
Fixer Upper hosts Joanna and Chip Gaines transformed this living room by opening up the space, creating a better flow into the dining room. By moving the air conditioner to the attic they were able to open up the hallway behind the wall and move the door from the dining area to the living room. The original hardwood floors were kept and refinished, and a window in the dining room was replaced with French doors.
A frequent entertainer, Chris has found that the living room is a favorite among his guests. “This big open space is a bit unexpected,” he reveals, “and the combination of the plants against the luxe vintage pieces always draws a reaction.” When asked about his favorite pieces in his home, Chris is quick to report that, “My coffee table from Maison Jansen is a highlight. It took me ages to find something that suited the space and I ended up with a piece that I absolutely cherish.”
Open-Plan Living, Dining and Kitchen Space
The kitchen, living room and dining room are all part of one big, open-plan space in this luxurious Tennessee estate. Broad doorways open the home's interior to its party-ready outdoor spaces. Finishes are sleek and neutral, and accented by dramatic Swarovski crystal light fixtures.
Big picture windows and an open-concept design give this cozy reading nook a clear view of the poolside patio. The beamed ceiling gives the space a rustic, homey feel, while its soaring height keeps the home feeling roomy and open.
White Contemporary Open Plan Kitchen and Dining Room
An open plan layout can be the best way to make a smaller space feel big and bright. In this home's renovation, the four enclosed rooms of the lower floor were opened up to connect the living, dining and kitchen areas.
To make this master bedroom suite feel big and open, a partial wall was constructed to visually separate the bathroom from the bed area. Floor-length mirrors also add to the illusion of a larger space.
