Open Floor Plan Combines Kitchen, Dining and Living
Kitchen Cousins John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino took a narrow and dated galley kitchen, blew out some walls and created this beautifully open floor plan in a luxe new space that marries kitchen, dining area and living room. The window between the dining area and living room is actually a single, large span of glass. The framing elements -- technically termed mullions -- create the effect of individual panes and are actually a decorative accent added separately.
Modern Pendant Lights Create Focal Point for Remodeled Kitchen
To create a focal point in this kitchen, Joanna added modern pendant lights suspended over the top of the kitchen island. The pattern on the pendant lights is reflected in the end of the kitchen island, tying the barn door pattern into this modern, rustic kitchen. As seen on Fixer Upper on HGTV.
A vaulted ceiling comprised of smooth wood panels makes an eye-catching addition to this outdoor kitchen. Meanwhile, recessed lighting and industrial pendants keep the space bright from morning to night.
To keep the family organized, the home's galley kitchen has plenty of cabinet storage and counter space to accommodate this large family's needs. To the left of the space, a pantry adds storage, while to the right of the space, a refrigerator sits inconspicuously off to the side.
This rustic-meets-modern cottage kitchen incorporates the old with the new. The suspended kitchen island, complete with Carrara marble and an apron sink, provides a stark contrast to the alder wood cabinets and reclaimed hemlock counter tops.
Dead space near the kitchen’s entrance was put to good use as a serving buffet made from pine planks and plumbing supplies. The project was created and installed in two days and cost less than $250 in materials.
In this home's new kitchen addition, designers used pieces of the old kitchen space, such as the old cabinets and wood floors, to create the new one. Then, they added features such as open shelves, stainless steel appliances, subway tile and wrought iron chairs to create a visually interesting rustic, industrial eat-in kitchen.
Bright, Open Design in Modern, Rustic-Industrial Kitchen
Designers wanted to create a bright, open look in this kitchen, so they brought in white cabinets grounded by gray countertops. For a pop of color, they decided to paint the island a light gray color. Then, they added a Neolith marble countertop to the island which, along with black matte fixtures and an apron front sink, combines the farmhouse feel with the industrial touch.
Cabinet door panels discreetly conceal some of the built-in appliances, keeping the warmth of the cabinetry as the main focal point of the room. Low storage innovations enable the child to access the kitchen items with ease and safety.
Contemporary Kitchen with Large Island and Wood Ceilings, Walls and Cabinets
A large, unique kitchen island takes center stage in this rustic-meets-contemporary kitchen. The island, topped with marble, has several unique features, including a built-in range, cabinets and drawers, exposed shelves and two levels -- one for prepping, and one that acts as a breakfast bar. A supporting beam spears the island, creating an interesting juxtaposition of old and new.
