White Cottage Open Kitchen and Dining Room With Ladder
To counter the limited square footage in this home, designers combined the kitchen, breakfast nook and dining room into one larger, easy-flow space. Upper cabinets are accessed by a fun library ladder. The dining table is hand-crafted out of live-edge spalted elm.
A bold blue island stands out against white walls and cabinets in this traditional, yet updated farmhouse kitchen. Classic pendants light the butcher block work surface, while recessed lights and ample windows provide plenty of general lighting for the space. Simple pulls adorn the cabinetry on the island and along the perimeter, complementing the room's farmhouse feel. Pale plank hardwood flooring completes the look.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, designer Jillian Harris created a more open space by ripping out the wall that divided the kitchen and living space and putting in a large island with white quartz countertops and lots of new storage. The previous countertops were so outdated, their width did not accommodate a dishwasher. The hardware and lighting was replaced, Edison lights hang above the island, hardwood floors were put down.
Open-Plan Gray Kitchen With White Custom Cabinetry
The use of white cabinets and soft gray walls with the warm wood floors make the kitchen feel spacious and clean without being sterile. By designing the cabinets and range hood to extend to the high ceilings, the kitchen feels grand despite being open to the entire home.
Open Transitional Living Space With Sectional Sofa
Designer Vanessa DeLeon used plush fabrics and deep gray accent pieces to put a glamorous spin on this open space. The transitional nature of the kitchen and living spaces creates an easy flow between the two rooms.
Beautiful and functional, this commercial-grade chef's kitchen has two islands with stone inserts in the wood countertops. Hand-turned wood legs add a furniture-quality to the islands, while exposed beams and spherical chandeliers bring a rustic quality to the space. Tile tapestry inserts add visual interest to the floor and as an added bonus, the tiles are heated.
Floor-to-ceiling cabinets ensure that the owners have plenty of storage options in this open-concept kitchen. The island comes with built-in shelves, too, so they even have a place for their favorite cookbooks.
Classic White Kitchen with Drum Pendant Over Island
A drum pendant with a shade offers affordable elegance, no matter your style, above an island or kitchen table. The filter on the bottom hides the bulbs and creates a soft glow, says interior designer Michelle Mentzer. You can find drum pendants with solid or patterned linen shades often starting at $125.
Open Concept Kitchen With White Stone Countertops and Lantern Pendant Lights
This new kitchen, in a space that was once occupied by a master bath and closet, is simple and functional with a basic U-shaped design with large center island, white stone countertops and plenty of storage. A pair of place black lantern pendant lights hangs above the kitchen island.
Fixer Upper Hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines turned the once disastrous room into a bright, clean kitchen with new cabinets, wood floors, Carrera marble countertops and light gray paint with white trim. The old drop ceiling was removed, adding height to the room, and a wooden support beam was added. A subway tile backsplash, floating wood shelves and stainless steel appliances were also installed. Client Clint Harper added the finishing touches to the kitchen by making a beautiful island and vent hood out of reclaimed wood, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
Rustic Wood & Stainless Steel in Stunning Eclectic Kitchen
Beautiful rustic wood cabinets complement the wood-topped island in this open, eclectic kitchen. A mix of recessed lighting and pendant lights highlights the stainless steel countertops and triple stainless steel sinks.
The original kitchen of this home was dark, with next to no natural light, and closed off from the living room. During the renovation, the location of the kitchen was moved to be in the center of the house and walls taken down to create an open plan layout.
