The homeowners were ready to update their 80-year-old home in a historic part of Nashville. The old kitchen was impossibly small and impractical, but Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri remove walls to open up the floor plan, install sleek white cabinets that contrast against the multi-colored tiled backsplash and create a large island with plenty of prep space.
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.
When designers removed the wall dividing the living room and kitchen, they needed a way to create a continuous design throughout the space, so they added exposed beams to the ceiling. Not only do these beams connect the two spaces, they also add warmth to the spaces and complement their contemporary design.
This newly remodeled kitchen by Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri features a new bakery corner, complete with open pantry walls, an island with a large butcher-block prep area and chic teal cabinets. A blackboard is installed for the homeowner, who is an avid baker, to showcase today's treats.
To open up this formerly small kitchen, a wall was removed and replaced with a spacious island that integrates a glass-top range and much-needed cabinetry. Contrasting against the black quartz countertops is a backsplash made from white subway tiles, which extend up to the ceiling. Open shelving with wrought iron brackets provide convenient and attractive display for dishware and accessories.
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.
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.
The custom bar includes four pro-quality taps, white subway tile backsplash and a custom shelf with under-lighting that illuminate bottles or decorative items. Warm wood tones pair with muted gray-greens and charcoal for an inviting, pub-inspired color palette. Weathered wood chairs surround a round dining table, perfect for conversations and gatherings of friends.
In this renovation by Kitchen Cousins John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino, walls were removed to open the kitchen onto adjacent spaces including this living room which was also updated as part of remodel.
As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, John and Anthony designed a kitchen space that is family friendly. Adjacent to the both the kitchen and the office space, the kids' play area provides the little ones with a place to play within eyesight while mom and dad fix the family's meals.
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.
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.
Separating the kitchen and living room spaces, a small bar adds casual seating and provides a place to house the stove. Covering this bar is antique barn wood that has been repurposed to create a rustic, farmhouse look in this updated kitchen. As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens.
The shelves and frames for the custom barn doors in this kitchen have been stained to match the cabinets and the base for the kitchen island. The natural color of the wood is infused with a hint of charcoal to coordinate these details with the cabinets and the gray and white tile floor and wall. As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens.
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.
This light and bright kitchen remodel includes a pairing of oak and painted blue cabinets with a white subway tile backsplash and wide plank hardwood floors. A cozy breakfast nook includes a reclaimed wood table, bench and stool seats, and a geometric metal chandelier. Recessed lighting illuminates the space.
In the dining space, designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens added plenty of storage and a bar area. To add more display options and complete the design in the space, a vintage barn shutter was repurposed into a shelving unit that is illuminated by a bright, broadway light fixture. Vintage metal rakes on either side of the shelves were upcycled and used as wine glass racks.
The remodeled dining area -- in warm wood tones, muted gray-greens and charcoal -- exemplifies the casual, comfortable vibe the Kitchen Cousins were going for with this renovation. To add historic character to the dining room, stamped-tin tiles were installed on the ceiling. The tiles are in varied patterns alternating between linear, medallion and floral designs. An impressive chandelier adds a touch of elegance to the space.
