A Well-Laid Plan
An open plan kitchen and dining room has great flow for Gregg's frequent cocktail parties. Displayed on the kitchen island is one of Gregg's seashell busts. The bookshelves in the distance feature a charming display of favorite thank you notes: the ultimate preppy design moment.
This rustic open concept kitchen and dining area features a custom wood table with bench, a deer antler chandelier, a breakfast bar Island with repurposed timber used for stools, dark wood cabinets, and knotty pine wall and ceiling paneling.
This city loft in Dallas, TX, offers a living-dining area with oak hardwood flooring, exposed concrete beams and clean lines. Architectural details act as art in this space, as the marble topped kitchen island draws the eye naturally to the dining table beneath the stairs and to the sofa placed in front of floor to ceiling windows.
Mid-Century Modern Kitchen From Sarah Sees Potential
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.

This light and bright open concept kitchen features white cabinets and a subway tile backsplash, while also providing immediate access to the dining room. A metal globe strap chandelier hangs above the wooden dining table and metallic pendant lights illuminate the kitchen peninsula.
This home's open floor plan allows for easy transition between the kitchen, dining and living rooms. A neutral and gray color palette keeps the look of the spaces light and bright, as seen in the ivory walls, gray cabinets and white tile backsplash. Black leather tufted dining chairs and metallic candlesticks add chic finishing touches.

This modern kitchen sitting area features a white tufted leather sectional with blue and pink accent pillows, gold metal tables, blue and pink roman shades, blue abstract wall art, and hardwood floors.
Previously, the kitchen and living rooms were separated from each other, but when Chip and Joanna of HGTV's Fixer Upper redesigned the space, they moved the fireplace to open up the spaces. Now, the fireplace serves as a feature that makes the living space nice and cozy, and there is a clear line of sight from the eat-in kitchen to the bright, elegant living space.
Love It or List It's Hilary Farr has designed this small dining room to make the most of its space with a rich, dark-stained, wood table and colorful fall accents. The open concept floor plan between the kitchen and dining room is helpful for making the space seem larger, as well.
This Austin urban oasis is the pure definition of open concept living. The kitchen is modern, bright and light, with stone-colored cabinetry to match the marble island, an elegant circular chandelier and large, wooden dining table.
Open dining rooms are in. Designer Cynthia Spence predicts an increase in building and remodeling around the concept of open dining rooms. She says this shift "creates a sense of flow throughout the space, and brings socializing back to the dinner table."
Transitional Eat-In Kitchen With Outdoor Patio Views
This Houston, TX, home offers grand rooms with perfect views, especially in the large, eat-in kitchen. High ceilings draw the eye to the beautiful chandelier hanging above the dining table, while the black-and-white checkered tile backsplash makes the space feel a bit more traditional. Guests can enjoy an outdoor view to the patio through double French doors.
Modern, Open Concept Living Spaces Create Functional Entertainment Space in Beach Cottage
Designers wanted to update the design of this Rhode Island beach home, so they created an open concept living space between the kitchen, dining room and living room. The open concept design enhances the entertainment aspect of the home and increases the flow and functionality between these spaces while allowing for a continuous design throughout the elegant beach cottage.
The Klingshirns wanted a practical functional space to replace their closed in dysfunctional kitchen in their older home. Chip Wade and his crew from HGTV's hit show Elbow Room removed several walls to open up their space and added modern conveniences such as new appliances and more work space.
The kitchen in the King home has been completely transformed and repositioned. Some of the key elements of the kitchen are the open shelves, the black granite countertops, the brick backsplash, a vent hood, stainless steel appliances, industrial light fixtures and a custom island, as seen on Fixer Upper.
