Neutral Contemporary Dining Room with Brown Dining Table
By far the most significant modification in this renovation was the opening up of two walls that had separated the dining room from an adjacent breakfast room and the kitchen. The new design made way for an enlarged kitchen, and the combined spaces now feels much more open and welcoming with an improved flow and sight-line.
New, White Cabinets and Stainless Steel Dining Table in Bright, Contemporary Kitchen
As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak removed a wall to enlarge this kitchen and bring it forward in the floor plan. The team added new, bright cabinets for plenty of storage and stainless steel appliances and dining table to make this space clean and modern. To give the kitchen a little color, teal dining chairs and live flowers were put in place, creating a warm, inviting contemporary kitchen.
KITCHEN, AFTER: The kitchen was enlarged by taking down the wall between the pantry and dining room. It's now a bright space with white cabinets, plenty of storage, a large island for cooking and entertaining, and new stainless steel appliances. There is a great mix of modern and industrial throughout the space.
This kitchen features a modern take on the traditional farmhouse sink. The white quartz counters reflect the abundant natural light from the adjacent terrace. The art by Karim Ghidnelli features phrases etched in the form of an enlarged thumbprint.

This stunning traditional kitchen greets you with a welcoming atmosphere in soft tones. White cabinetry and light stone countertops keep the space light and warm while the chevron-design backsplash excites and doesn't overwhelming. Enlarging the island countertop on one end creates additional space for seating and food preparation.
Originally, this kitchen was small and outdated, and the layout was not conducive to multiple people working at the same time. The designers moved one of the boundary walls back 4 feet to enlarge the space. A large island in the middle can be used for prep work and also provides a place for guests to gather.
Dark distressed cabinets with built-in wine racks create a sophisticated and masculine atmosphere in this eclectic kitchen. A mirror above the the counter enlarges the space, while floating shelves provide easy access to kitchen essentials.
Neutral Mediterranean Kitchen with Brick Backsplash
An enlarged island takes up the center of this sophisticated mediterranean kitchen with a bar on the end. A brick surround showcases the backsplash and cooking area to highlight it as the most important part of this family's kitchen.
This small kitchen is awash in creamy neutrals, which helps to visually enlarge the small space. Unlike the modern furnishings throughout the rest of the home, the kitchen has a subtle cottage vibe thanks to paneled cabinets and under-island storage.
From a wider perspective, it's easier to see how Kay and Hooff seamlessly blended the kitchen addition into the home's existing features, per the clients' wishes. To pull it off, the antique glass passage knobs on the arched double doors match the originals elsewhere in the house. Gaze through the door to observe that the fireplace is surrounded by reclaimed brick and a plaster mantle. The reclaimed French oak floors continue into the room as well. Above the fireplace, a custom mirror enlarges the feel of the space.
