10 Incredible Kitchen Makeovers From Fixer Upper
Missing Chip and JoJo? We've got your Fixer Upper fix.
I don’t know about you, but ever since Fixer Upper’s third season ended, I’ve been dreaming about season four. Chip and Jo have a way of firing me up for my own home renos. While the dynamic duo is off filming the next season of design magic, I’ve rounded up some of their best makeovers to date. Check out these amazing kitchen transformations, and try not to drool.
Before: With dated cabinets, wallpaper and linoleum, the original kitchen needed some major updating.
Barn Home in the Country: Custom Vent Hood and Backsplash
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, this home's custom kitchen features a black and white tile back splash that complements the space. The kitchen also features stainless steel appliances and wood details that give the space a perfect blend of contemporary and rustic styles.
After: Natural wood helps soften the bold black-and-white color scheme and patterned tile backsplash in the completely renovated kitchen.
The Coastal Makeover for a '70s Ranch House
Before: The ‘70s-era kitchen was ultra closed off, so Joanna suggested removing the partition and adding a large island.
Bright Blue and White Kitchen With White Barn Doors, Large Island and Wicker Bar Stools
This kitchen features white cabinets, a large island, pendant lighting and white tile backsplash. The grey and white tones and wicker bar stools help to compliment the beach theme that runs throughout the entire home, as seen on HGTV Fixer Upper.
After: A soft gray and white palette makes the new kitchen feel clean and fresh, and barstools offer ample seating for impromptu dining.
The Ranch-Home Update
Before: The original kitchen was narrow and dark.
Kitchen With Large Center Island and Industrial Pendant Lights
The newly configured kitchen has a large center island, crisp white cabinetry with contrasting black hardware, new stainless steel appliances and custom vent hood. Joanna Gaines found vintage wooden corbels at a local salvage shop for the perfect finishing touch.
After: Crisp, white cabinets, an oversized wood island and a sparkling white tile backsplash combine for a totally new look.
The Texas-Sized House With Small-Town Charm
Before: Orange-hued cabinets are cramped into a tight space before the renovation.
After: For this home, Joanna recommended relocating the kitchen. The new kitchen is in a space that was previously the den.
The Vintage Tiny House
Before: This central room was formerly used as a bedroom but would become part of the kitchen in the renovation.
Small Kitchen with a Wide Open Feel Tiny Vintage Home
The small kitchen was opened up by removing walls and vaulting the ceiling. The neutral color palate keeps the space bright and complements the vintage refrigerator, vent hood, floating shelves and wooden flooring, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
After: The tiny home’s new kitchen features white oak cabinets, black countertops and floating shelves to create a sleek, clean aesthetic.
The Suburban Bungalow
Before: Bland and lifeless, the original kitchen needed some personality.
After: Industrial open shelving and a reclaimed wood island give the renovated kitchen major 'wow' factor.
The Shingle Shack
Before: This kitchen was a prime example of all-white gone all-wrong.
After: In the renovated kitchen, gray countertops provide contrast against the updated white cabinets, and stylish pendant lights add pizzazz.
The Overgrown Ranch
Before: The lack of natural light and deep brown tones left this kitchen feeling dark and dull.
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.
After: Chip and Joanna completely transformed the kitchen with brick walls, black granite countertops, industrial pendants and a custom-built island.
The Messy Mid-Century Modern
Before: An awkward, box-like floor plan made this kitchen undesirable.
After: Chip and Jo knocked down walls to create an open layout and opted for an eye-catching mid-century modern design.
The Faceless Bunker
Before: The original kitchen had a tight layout that didn’t flow with the home’s open floor plan.
After: Joanna suggested moving the kitchen upstairs to give it a more central location. The new kitchen flows seamlessly with the home’s design.
