After walls were removed, this Fixer Upper kitchen has much more room. To maximize the functionality of this space, Chip and Joanna added a large kitchen island that added more counter and prep space, as well as gave the family a place to sit down for a casual meal. Joanna continued her rustic industrial style in the kitchen, painting the cabinets to match the trim and molding throughout the first floor. She also added industrial pendant lights, an industrial style sink and rustic industrial barstools to complete the look.
The homeowners wanted a unique kitchen space, so designers featured a hidden television inside the space's mirrored backsplash. The special dielectric mirror was designed and fabricated so that it can slide behind the built-in kitchen cabinets in case the television ever needed to be repaired. The home already had cast iron columns, so designers incorporated them into the home's design, giving the space a more industrial feel.
The rough tile base of this outdoor kitchen compliments the rough finish on the retaining wall for a beautiful texture effect. The smooth, bright blue marble countertop is a gorgeous texture contrast and adds bright color to the design. A marble panel slides over the built-in sink opening for extra work space.
Woven all-weather wicker dining chairs are a perfect pick to provide an eye-catching contrast to the neutral tile sand flooring of this stunning outdoor dining room and kitchen. The arching backsplash and intricate tile medallion incorporates natural travertine tile and blue glass inlay.
This modern white eat in kitchen features a work island with built in dining table with white upholstered chairs, stainless steel appliances and vent hood, floating shelves, and gold sconces and sculptural pendant lights.
Sleek, white lacquered cabinets are paired with charcoal gray floor tiles and a black butcher block island in this galley kitchen. Floating black wood shelves display kitchen necessities, while a stainless steel countertop and backsplash make food preparation and cleanup a cinch.
Vaulted ceilings and white cabinets, Calacatta countertops and a large eat-in center island creates an airy, sophisticated kitchen. With vintage modern and traditional details like traditional satin nickel bin pulls, a sparkle from the fabric-wrapped chains on the pendant lights and porcelain herringbone floor tiles adds depth and creates a feeling that is both contemporary and inviting.
