Open Concept Kitchen with Eat-in Area
As seen on HGTV's hit show Love It or List It, Hilary's design for this kitchen opens up the space and makes it feel larger than the original floor plan. She adds storage to this space by using a kitchen island in the middle of the room. The neutral colors on the cabinets and windows are accented by a pop of color on the far wall. That color also helps to separate the eat-in area from the main part of the kitchen.
In this open concept living area that includes a kitchen as well as several sitting areas, a common blue-and-white palette helps unify the layout. The kitchen's blue shade, backsplash and barstools visually tie in with similar shades by the fireplace.
The ceiling splits for a subtle and effective room divide in this open, modern design. The kitchen is completely encompassed by wood, while the dining area features a white ceiling and track lighting, opening up the space even more. A wall of windows provides stunning views.
The bold polka dot wallpaper and custom pop art continue into the adjacent kitchen and dining area. Here, dark wood cabinets provide a rich contrast to the white walls, while recessed and pendant lights ensure that the room is well-lit for meal prep.
The Williams family asked Chip of HGTV's Elbow Room to design them a family friendly, functional kitchen. Chip included a ton of seating for this family to entertain, a study area for the kids to do their homework, as well as a beautiful muted brick fireplace. The natural elements in the room, such as the exposed wood beams and molding as well as the natural light that pours into the room through the spacious windows in the sitting area help to create the rustic, natural look the family was hoping for.
This charming home is used by its owners as a full-time rental. To make it memorable, they chose a colorful, eco-friendly design inspiration: The island features an 8-foot wood countertop. The dining table is custom-made from 3-inch thick Blue Pine.
Naturally, the kitchen and dining room are just as carefully curated, with both spaces featuring billowing drapes, colorful area rugs and ornate light fixtures. With three barstools and eight dining chairs, there are plenty of seats for guests.
Dark oak flooring anchors this kitchen and dining area's marriage of rustic and modern aesthetics: the kitchen's island and cabinets of barnwood and blue-painted fronts and the dining area's graphic designer wallpaper, traditional round pedestal table, and quartet of red acrylic chairs.
Open Concept Contemporary Kitchen and Dining Areas
A less-is-more approach keeps this open floor plan from looking cluttered and over-furnished. Subtle plays on similar colors bring brightness to the living areas and also lend to the unity of the space.
The open concept design of this loft makes the transition from one space in the home to another quite simple. The living area and dining area are vignettes, separated by rugs that define each space, but kept continuous by the elegant contemporary design and light fixtures used throughout the home.
