As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, designers Anthony and John created a separate bar area just off the kitchen. To delineate the two spaces, designers used bold, blue cabinets and a gray countertop, creating visual separation from the adjoining kitchen space.

This kitchen redesign, as featured on America's Most Desperate Kitchen, features new, ceiling height cabinets and a large kitchen island.
