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.
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 wood and metal barstools pull up underneath the kitchen island's butcher-block countertops, creating a casual dining spot and perfect place to gather while this avid baker is prepping her next creation. Open pantry shelving keeps all ingredients in view and easy to reach.
New furniture and coffered ceilings transform this space into an elegant formal dining room whose design complements the French Country kitchen. The large window lets in plenty of light to illuminate the space and highlight the design, as seen on HGTV's America's Most Desperate Kitchens.
The keynote feature in this pub-style dining room is the integrated bar with restaurant quality beer taps that can serve up to four different craft beers. Historic character is added with stamped-tin ceiling tiles, while a statement-making chandelier adds an elegant touch.
This kitchen remodel features a breakfast nook with a custom reclaimed wood dining table. Two stools attach to one side of the table, while an upholstered blue wood bench seat is built-in to the corner. A metal geometric chandelier hangs above, while throw pillows decorate the bench.
To maintain the farmhouse feel, designers kept the wainscoting that already existed in the space, but updated it with a coat of paint that continues the neutral color palette into the dining room. A vintage, farmhouse table further continues the design, while the chairs surrounding it have been painted black to make them seem more modern. The sliding barn door separates the dining room and kitchen from the rest of the house, maintaining the vintage style. Finally, color is added to the space through the aqua pendant light and the broadway letter B light, completing the updated, farmhouse design of the space.
To expand the seating options in this kitchen, designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens created a small, casual table that connects to the larger, more formal one. This gives the homeowners the option of using the smaller table when they are home alone and simply want a casual meal or expanding their entertaining space, using both the larger table and the smaller table concurrently.
To warm up this neutral kitchen, designers added light wood floors running throughout the space. Not only do these wood floors help to provide warmth to the space, they also help the exposed beams in the ceiling to visually connect the kitchen and living room spaces.
In this renovated Louisiana kitchen featured on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, the curved countertop has been removed to provide the space with easy access to the family room. To create a more elegant space, old, outdated cabinets were replaced with bright white cabinets with a crown molding and a single raised panel for a more sophisticated look.
Although designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens wanted to create an authentic looking farmhouse kitchen, they also wanted to give the homeowners lots of modern luxuries, so they combined vintage inspired features, like the mint refrigerator and mixer and large print tile floor, with modern cabinets and countertops, creating a durable, elegant space.
Prior to the renovation, the dining room was isolated from the kitchen and seldom used. Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri removed a wall to unify the spaces and create this open and inviting dining area with a beautiful farmhouse table.
Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri transformed a dated and dysfunctional kitchen into this modern rustic space that's specially conceived to be the ideal baker's kitchen. The kitchen island with its distressed and stained mahogany butcher-block provides a spacious prep area for the avid baking enthusiast and serves double duty for serving and entertaining.
This kitchen redesign, as featured on America's Most Desperate Kitchen, features new, ceiling height cabinets and a large kitchen island. The island is four feet deep, leaving plenty of space for storage, and twelve feel deep, adding an informal dining space which removed the need for a formal dining room, so designers incorporated the former dining room space into the kitchen to make it larger and more functional.
A focal point in this kitchen featured on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, and a key part to its French Country design is the concealed refrigerator. The custom armoire casing is painted in a muted blue with curved, ceiling height molding that softens the look of the kitchen.
John and Anthony, from America's Most Desperate Kitchen, took a small, outdated kitchen and opened it into the living room to create an open, contemporary space that is perfect for cooking, dining and entertaining.
Purposeful contrast is created between the finishes from the natural look of reclaimed wood on the island to the traditional gray-green painted finish on the cabinets. The "area rug" runner is actually porcelain tile made to look like a rug. The 3'x8' pattern runs the length of the island, with each tile having a distinct look to collectively create unique design effect.
Featured on HGTV's America's Most Desperate Kitchens, both the kitchen and dining room areas were small and closed off, so designers John and Anthony took out part of the kitchen wall, creating a bar area that opens both spaces making them feel larger.
