This vintage 2-unit building was transformed into a contemporary single-family home. Instead of walls, walnut and light oak cabinetry of varying heights delineates the kitchen and dining area, the den and living area.
White walls and white cabinetry give this open layout home a light, cohesive look. A colorful mosaic tile backsplash breaks up the white in the kitchen and offers a fun punch of color that complements the brown kitchen floor.
This open plan kitchen features sleek white cabinets paired with a gray marble countertop and polished concrete floors. The ample space allows room for a small breakfast nook with a round table and several dining chairs, in addition to a convenient corner home office.
Color is a vibrant part of the redesigned kitchen, thanks to color-blocked cabinet fronts that take turns with mahogany ones. Open shelving shows off pretty ceramic dishware, a nice visual tie-in with the ceramic pendant lights.
The wall between the kitchen and living room is long gone, and a new, black iron retaining wall with gridded windows now defines the space between the kitchen and the foyer in an inviting way. "That wall is like, Let's get on the other side of it!," Joanna said. New hardwood floors, a massive new kitchen island, a teal backsplash and opulent new brass pendant lights complete the kitchen's transformation.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, this once cramped and dated kitchen and dining area was transformed into a chic, mid-century style space. Designer Sarah Richardson upcycled thrift store chairs by dipping the legs in chrome and reupholstering the seats. Keeping with the vintage theme, Sarah installed mid-century modern light fixtures and added bright pops of color throughout the neutral space. The owner's original artwork hangs above a custom banquette to complete the look.
The refrigerator was tucked out of view from the living room, and the oven was pushed to the far end to allow as much continuous counter space as possible. A contrasting finish for the island cabinets were chosen to be more furniture-like. New doors lead out to the backyard’s screened-in porch.
This midcentury modern kitchen exemplifies how form and function can meet beautifully. Walnut floors and two-toned cabinets enhance the room's uncluttered look and play off the light coming in from the windows. The kitchen island is a perfect spot for a quick breakfast, while the dining table seats six for family dinner or entertaining.
Sleek white countertops and alternating white and brown cabinets create this clean, midcentury modern kitchen design. The L-shaped island serves multiple purposes as a place to prep, dine and store kitchen essentials. A pop of orange in the backsplash adds a splash of color to spice things up.
The transition between indoor and outdoor spaces is so graceful, it's almost indiscernible. Here, a glass door slides into the limestone wall and completely disappears to connect the kitchen with a covered porch that includes a grill and fireplace.
