This kitchen has been reconfigured to take advantage of the new open concept floor plan. A large kitchen island provides more counter space, as well as doubles as a kitchen table with stools running underneath. The sliding door was reduced to a sink under the window, allowing the galley kitchen to run along the whole wall. Stainless steel appliances, pendant and recessed lighting, and a neutral color scheme create a clean modern look to the kitchen. New flooring was added throughout the whole first floor.
A large kitchen island doubles as extra prep space and a casual spot for dining. The island's muted gray color goes well with the kitchen's updated farmhouse aesthetic, and an apron-front sink completes the look. A gorgeous marble countertop adds a sophisticated touch.
Farmhouse Kitchen With Large Island And Stone Fireplace
The heart of the house in this expansive Ontario estate, is the kitchen with large island, complete with incredible natural light, vaulted beamed ceilings, and an original stone two-sided fireplace where family and friends can gather.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, to maximize the space in this kitchen, Joanna added a functional kitchen island to increase seating options and give the family more prep space for meals. Gray cabinets match the gray trim and molding from the rest of the open concept first floor, and rustic stools provide complementary style. A subway tile backsplash polishes off the space, finishing out the design.

The island seats five, with the fifth seat around the far side of the island.
The large rustic island centers this farmhouse kitchen and provides extra storage and prep space. An open shelf in the island keeps favorite cookbooks handy, while a pair of pendant lights illuminates the pretty white countertops.
To make the kitchen as functional as possible, the designers also outfitted the space with open shelves and custom cabinetry. The island has drawers, too, as well as a farmhouse sink for a look that Joanna Gaines would love.
Large doors let in plenty on natural light to shine on this large kitchen island. Natural wood in a red birch stain contrasts with the white walls and countertops to keep the kitchen feeling cozy and friendly.
