The sleek design of this kitchen pairs dark wood cabinetry with orange walls and bright white countertops. Floor to ceiling storage ensures that the counter space remains clear. A small tile backsplash complements the orange walls. A row of cushioned bar stools are lined below the light countertop. A muddled glass panel adds a unique decoration and texture to the smooth look of the room.
By all appearances the entryway could be original to the home, but it's actually part of the updated additions. To create the effect, Kay and Hooff used the home's original wood boards, recovered from demolition, and added custom screen pantry doors and a paneled coat closet. Some of the owner's favorite items personalize the space, like this antique child's chair, gallery artwork, Moattar rug and Formations lantern.
Dark, wood cabinets on the long double-sink vanity add a deep contrast to the bright color scheme. Marble floor tile continues from the floor onto the walls creating a backsplash above the vanity and a tile wall in the large, walk in shower. An accent panel of small blue tile adds a touch of color visible through the glass shower doors.
The front door, crafted from hemlock planks reclaimed from the interior of a 150-year-old home, complements the natural pine flooring and yellow birch panel ceiling in the HGTV Dream Home 2011. A white pendant light illuminates the space while black wood furniture and large accessories anchor the room. A gray floral patterned throw rug greets visitors to the home.
A snakeskin area rug gives personality to this bright and stylish living room. A white coffered ceiling looks down on a large wood coffee table. A neutral sofa with woodgrain arm panels and a pair of matching chairs face into the table. Midcentury modern chairs with black leather cushions complete the seating collection. Natural light streams in from windows framed with long gray curtains.
Panels from an 18th century French screen hang on the wall as a focal point in this beautiful, neutral traditional dining room. A long neutral curtain with a leaf border design hangs in front of glass French doors allowing outdoor access. Natural light from the doors and above windows illuminate the soft details of the room and dark wooden dining table.
Custom cabinetry is constructed from hot-rolled steel panels, creating a cooking area that marries function and style in this neutral contemporary kitchen. On the backsplash, ceramic tile mimics the look of weathered wood. A unique custom island features a countertop of live-edge walnut, warming up the room and adding an organic element to the heart of the home.
The kitchen appliances disappear into this custom art wall, which adds vibrant color and energy to the non-traditional kitchen. The wall is clad in reclaimed barn wood, and artist Rob Stenberg painted the design on the panels. Touch-latch cabinetry keeps the wall looking more like an art installation than kitchen cabinetry. A custom hemlock block island looks time worn and was fabricated by the homeowner.
Defining the dining room in this open floor plan was achieved by making the fireplace the focal point of the room. The low backs on the gray upholstered dining chairs allow for viewing of the fireplace in the cultured stone accent panel. The long, dark wooden dining table looks beautiful against the light hardwood flooring. An orange bowl acts as a simple centerpiece and adds a splash of color.
The key element of this master bathroom is the natural light. The exterior metal panels allow sun to come in throughout the day while still providing privacy. The room changes from day to day and season to season depending on the sun's placement. The natural stone on the shower walls and bath surround complement the natural wood floor and cabinets for a cohesive overall look.
The graphic patterns and bold colors characteristic of midcentury style can overwhelm a small space. But with a little creativity you can get the same effect, as designer Michelle Lord did in this bathroom update. Adding a lattice panel between the vanity and toilet/bath area not only created a sense of privacy but also incorporated pattern and texture, without straying from the all-white and wood palette.
A patchwork tile panel in the floor gives subtle intrigue and decoration to the smooth and classic look of the room. Green tones in the floor tile compliment the green countertop. Built in upper and lower wood cabinets add warmth to the room and ground the design. A white bathtub is highlighted in the natural sunlight from the above window.
This elegant sitting room boasts a royal air with a lovely white and cream color palette. Inward facing sofas padded with plush throw pillows create cozy seating in front of the white fireplace with accent panel extending from the mantel. Glass and metallic tables add airy decor to the room while hardwood floor and crossing wooden ceiling beams add a warm foundation. Gold curtains pull pack to reveal outside access through glass doors.
Kitchen Cousins John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino took a narrow and dated galley kitchen and created this beautifully open floor plan in a luxe new space that marries kitchen, dining area and living room. The new 13-foot kitchen island features brilliant white quartz countertops. Its front panel is made from reclaimed wood that was locally sourced from a decommissioned water tower that was more than 150 years old.
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.
It may be by far the most common kitchen island shape, but the rectangle isn’t your only option. Angled and even curved designs can work better in your space, like this stunning oval designed by Anthony Baratta. The oblong island, which mirrors the shape of the recessed ceiling, is a custom design built in English sycamore wood, with a Pyrolave countertop in a custom lime color and reverse-painted glass door panels.
This dramatically eclectic dining room from designer Vanessa DeLeon has a rustic wooden table and large windows allowing natural light to fill this space. The handcrafted table by Palo Samko features his signature butterfly joinery. “In this room, the table is the show-stopper,” says DeLeon, who continued the clean, crisp look with lightweight velvet panels in dark gray on the windows. The chandelier from Currey & Company is purposefully understated.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines completely transformed the bathroom by removing all of the old and tile and wall panels. The walls were painted light yellow with white beaded board wainscoting. Two ornate wooden mirrors hang above his and her's vessel sinks installed on top of an old painted dresser. New tile floors in a traditional pattern adds to the character of the room and a subway tile bathtub and shower were installed.
