The neutral palette of this Craftsman sitting room allows for its compelling mix of textures to stand out. Pale wood paneling covers the walls. The fireplace surround features a light gray graphic pattern. And bricks in a herringbone pattern make up the fireplace's interior.
Exotic wood paneling and cabinets give major design pizzazz to this modern kitchen. The zigzag of the wood's grain brings a sense of movement to the space and the coffee color warms up the stainless steel accents.
The wood paneled refrigerator matches the cabinetry, blending beautifully into the natural look of this Craftsman kitchen. Glass cabinet doors show off organized glassware and dishes. Beautiful dark stone countertops add movement and color to the room, while light stone floors serve as a neutral foundation.
This spacious open-concept kitchen features stained wood cabinets, a white subway tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances. Two industrial-style barstools at the narrow kitchen island turn the prep space into a breakfast bar.
The look of the porch is transformed with fresh white paint, khaki trim, painted concrete floors and a ceiling fan in a more classic design. But the star of the new porch is the set of twin chair swings — Ben's custom take on the traditional Southern porch swing. Each is a variation on the familiar Adirondack chair design, and they were handmade by Ben using reclaimed wood from demo of one of the home's interior walls.
Neutral Craftsman Kitchen with Brown Hardwood Floor
The linoleum floor was removed and replaced with new hardwood flooring using stained yellow pine meticulously color-matched to approximate the tone of the original heart pine found throughout the rest of the home.
Neutral Craftsman Kitchen with Custom Wood Banquette
The new kitchen is bright and airy with updated lighting, new cabinetry, subway tile backsplash and lots of natural wood. Ben fashioned a custom banquette — a special request by Mackenzie as a feature that would remind her of the home she grew up in. The banquette was constructed from reclaimed wood flooring and the seating was butcher block to tie in with the wood countertops.
Neutral Contemporary Kitchen With Wood-Paneled Ceiling
A slate stacked-stone accent wall frames a large picture window and adds texture and interest to this neutral kitchen. An exposed ceiling beam emphasizes the new, heightened roofline while tying the contemporary kitchen design into the midcentury home's overall style.
Contemporary Neutral Kitchen with Brown Wooden Island
The original plan for the kitchen was to install hardwood floors, but Fixer Upper host Joanna Gaines opted instead for black and white tile, originally planned for use only in a butler's pantry, to give the entire kitchen added personality and a more dynamic look. Stained antique doors, a wooden island and copper elements help provide a warm counterbalance to the striking black and white.
