Industrial, Loft-Inspired Kitchen and Adjacent Work Area

This newly renovated kitchen, designed by HGTV's Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri and seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, has expanded storage, plenty of counter space and the open feel of an urban loft. What had once served as the dining room is now a functioning work area that shares space with the kitchen.

Vintage-Inspired Kitchen Mixes Clean Lines, Industrial Feel

The clean, modern cabinets have beechwood surrounds, plywood back boxes and feature soft-close. The cabinet hardware has the look of weathered copper with a blue-green verdigris patina. Antique inspiration is behind the kitchen island, which is clad in a cold-rolled steel wrapped around a plywood substrate for a smooth and durable work surface.

Rustic Meets Industrial Kitchen Design

Muted gray cabinets pair with black quartz countertops, while contrasting white quartz countertops top the 13-foot-long island. Quartz countertops offer the advantage of resistance to staining and are essentially maintenance free. A well-lit kitchen relies on sophisticated and layered lighting from multiple sources. In this case that includes recessed spots for dramatic accent, industrial-style pendants for concentrated task lighting and a trio of rustic sconces over the sink.

Open, Industrial Kitchen with Access to Surrounding Rooms

As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, Kitchen Cousins John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino transformed a tiny kitchenette-style space into this impressive and versatile new kitchen with an open feel and free-flowing access to surrounding rooms.

Half Wall Between Kitchen and Dining Room Makes Both Spaces Feel Open

Contemporary Rustic Kitchen Opens to Dining Area

Exposed reclaimed wood ceiling beams add a rustic touch to this contemporary kitchen. The long kitchen island is clad in stainless steel countertops and features a base of rough-hewn wooden legs made from driftwood. Bright white cabinets add lightness to the space, while a custom touch is a concrete apron-front sink.

Neutral Color Palette in French Country Kitchen

The elegant look in this space is created by the neutral color palette, gray subway tile with crackle finish and gray granite countertops with lots of veining. All of the appliances in the space except the new, stainless steel range were covered in paneling to create a seamless, sophisticated design. As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens.

Vintage Inspired Refrigerator and Tile Give Kitchen an Authentic Look

To create the perfect vintage, farmhouse look, designers at America's Most Desperate Kitchens added a new, pastel green Smeg refrigerator. Despite its retro design, it has all the modern gadgets of a stainless steel fridge in a cute, kitschy package. To complete the design, custom large pattern tile flooring and an exposed beam gives the space an authentic farmhouse feel.

Glass Shelving Above Large, Undermount Sink

Above a large, undermount sink, designers John and Anthony installed floating glass shelves to add storage and display space without interrupting the design of the kitchen. As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens.

Cozy Transitional Living Room Full of Light

Prior to the renovation, the fireplace brick was a plain, drab color. Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri painted the brick and the mantel in bright white for a stronger visual impact. The firewood holder is a welded steel box with plates attached at the top and mid-point for structural support. An oversized wall clock is made from reclaimed wood, while a five-piece modular sectional sofa makes for a comfy spot to relax.

Industrial Farmhouse

Anthony and John surprise Austin homeowners Josh and Jessica with a plan to remodel their 1940's cramped, drab, dark & dysfunctional kitchen. Hardly updated since it was built, the kitchen is not functional, has no flow and has very little storage for this busy family of 5. The cousins improve flow by removing French doors into a covered porch and adding a wall of cabinets topped with leathered granite, as well as a kitchen island, plenty of prep space and updated stainless steel appliances. The adjoining dining room gains French doors out to the back yard, a pub-height table set upon cabinets, a kids work area, industrial lighting and a wall of storage.
