As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, the primary challenge for Kevin & Celine's family home was maintaining a balance between the heritage of the house and incorporating a modern design. Designer Jillian Harris bridged the border between modern and historical by choosing a modern version of tile for the backsplash. The originally planned grey slate tiles were set aside with the discovery of the original fir floor boards. A large peninsula created as a gathering place for the family. A deep pantry to the right of the fridge was designed by having to close off a small corridor that was no longer to code.
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.
Transitional Kitchen Features Sophisticated Cabinets & Updated Appliances
Decorative cornice molding outlining the tops of these sophisticated kitchen cabinets work in harmony with the surrounding refined details, including the coffered ceiling, marble countertops and linear cabinet pulls. Built-in shelving provides easy access to favorite cookbooks without countertop clutter and using glass cabinet doors opens up the room, helping the space seem bigger and more alive.
Updated Country Kitchen With Angled Wood Feature Wall
Think beyond traditional finishes when choosing a hardwood floor for your kitchen. Wide-plank engineered wood floors with a slightly grayish hue lend a casual, rustic feel to this kitchen. An angled wood feature wall with open shelving adds additional texture and visual interest.
Updated Transitional Kitchen With Farmhouse Feel Features Lage Island & Country Accents
A large kitchen island provides ample space for extra food preparation and stylish additional seating in this sleek transitional kitchen with a farmhouse feel. Country influenced accents from the teapot and fun, painted chairs liven the space while conical metal pendant light and tile backsplash shimmer among the sleek line and neutral palette cabinetry. Built-in storage provides an ideal place for organizing mail, showcasing assorted glassware and showing off family photos on the bulletin board.
New Backsplash and Fresh Paint Add Update to Original Kitchen Cabinets, Countertops and Appliances
To save the homeowners a little money, Fixer Upper hosts, Chip and Joanna Gaines, decided to keep the original countertops, cabinets and appliances but added color and contrast in the space with a new stone backsplash, new light fixtures and a new coat of paint on the walls. The wall between the living room and dining area were removed to open up the space, and the new slate floors in both rooms create a cohesive flow between the spaces.
The designers for this condo, located in the Back Bay of Boston, renovated the kitchen, dining, living area and bathroom, updating the space while still maintaining the beautiful original details. Here, the kitchen opens up from the living room, featuring tailored lines and streamlined efficiency.
White Transitional Master Bathroom with Victorian Architecture
A furniture-style vanity with a shapely marble top gives a nod to this fully renovated home's Victorian architecture. Chrome fixtures and hardware bring an updated vibe to the white-walled space, which features original millwork. This Victorian home had beautiful bones, but the client wanted to update the bathrooms, kitchen and living spaces to reflect her family's casual lifestyle.
Exposed Brick and Modern Details Create Fresh, New Kitchen
The home's original structure had exposed brick walls, so designers opted to keep them and combine them with cantilevered shelving, modern kitchen cabinets, fresh countertops and stainless steel appliances, creating a look that seamlessly combines the home's original details with new, modern updates.
This updated kitchen has new hardwood floors, granite counter tops, a subway tile backsplash, two pendant lights, and new stainless fixtures and appliances. The original cabinets and island were painted bright white and updated with modern, stainless steel hardware, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
