Attractive and Functional

This open kitchen with full overlay custom cabinets painted a soft white color combines modern style with an Old World feel. Tons of designated storage and smart solutions, including mixer lift and trash chute, make this space super functional.

Casual Dining

The kitchen’s inviting breakfast area in front of the center island features a large 72-inch-wide wood dining table with unexpected seating options. A custom church pew, round ottomans that are easy to move around and Parson-style dining chairs upholstered in a woven black plaid fabric give everyone a seat at the table.

Color Contrast

The kitchen’s soft white custom cabinets with brass-finish hardware pop against the deep-gray walls with soft white trim, and coordinate with the durable Calcutta Sienna quartz counters. A 7-inch white oak hardwood floor provides a neutral backdrop that allows all of the kitchen’s design details to shine.

Great Flow

This look at the back of the island shows how the layout for this kitchen encourages good traffic flow, with the cooking area and stainless French-door refrigerator placed within easy reach.

Walk-In Pantry

A paneled door by the kitchen’s stainless refrigerator leads to a long walk-in pantry for storage of dry goods and extra kitchen items.

Open Shelves

The walk-in pantry includes handy open shelves ideal for storing rolls of extra paper towels, snacks, bottled beverages, kitchen linens and more.

User-Friendly Canisters

The back wall of the walk-in pantry has a wall-mounted rack with space for canisters of assorted dry goods. Adding labels to the canisters makes it easy to quickly find ingredients when making nightly dinner or a special-occasion meal.

Striped Softness

A long striped rug that sits between the back of the island and the cooking area adds pattern and softness over the floor and picks up the light and dark colors used in this well-detailed kitchen.

Zoned Comfort

HGTV Smart Home 2019’s advanced heating and cooling system offers exceptional performance and ultimate control, with an air purification system and zoned comfort, so the temperatures in specific rooms can be set and controlled via an app on a smartphone, by a tablet or by a control panel on the wall.

Great Features

The kitchen’s stainless French-door refrigerator includes a counter-depth design that offers a built-in look by fitting nearly flush with surrounding cabinetry. The advanced refrigerator includes a handy hands-free autofill that allows you to walk away while the dispenser automatically fills any container with filtered water.

User-Friendly Extras

Making the HGTV Smart Home 2019 kitchen super user-friendly, the base cabinets include a hanging pan organizer with lid storage in a black nickel finish, a soft-close mixer/appliance lift and a 50-quart double-pullout waste container system. The kitchen also includes a 24-inch double cutlery drawer that keeps utensils organized.

Brew Up a Cup

The kitchen's space-saving, easy-to-use single-serve coffeemaker with a gold finish delivers fresh-brewed, delicious coffee in minutes. The butler’s pantry also includes a special edition single-serve coffee-, latte- and cappuccino-maker that allows you to brew up coffeehouse favorites for your family and friends.

Pick Your Flavor

A drawer under the counter where the single-serve coffeemaker sits includes a wide selection of coffee pods, making it easy to brew up just the right cup.

Best of Both Worlds

This view shows the light-filled library with large single-hung vinyl windows and solar-powered skylights that sits right off the kitchen, a space with an inviting seating area and stylish storage. This attractive spot in the home offers a place for more quiet conversation or reading, while still enjoying a close proximity to the main action in the kitchen and great room.

Classic Meets Modern

Classic style meets modern technology with the kitchen’s vibrant stainless touchless pull-down faucet. The user-friendly faucet is paired with an undermount single-bowl kitchen sink with three graduated levels in the basin, so you can adjust accessories like a bamboo cutting board at your preferred height.

Easy Cleanup

The stainless dishwasher with hidden controls by the sink in the island includes a full-extension smooth-glide upper rack and bottle jets to clean hard-to-reach areas inside tall items. The sink area also includes a trash chute pullout, with a cutting board right above a garbage can with hole on top.

Old World Flavor

Two oversized custom-made light fixtures that come off the back wall of the kitchen extend to illuminate the breakfast area. The large fixtures combine clean, modern lines with a bit of an Old World feel.

Spacious Cooking Area

The spacious cooking area with 36-inch built-in stainless gas cooktop with heavy-cast, edge-to-edge grates includes a large custom hood above with powerful fan inside and lots of handy counterspace on each side.

Easy-Access Storage

An 8-inch “no wiggle” utensil bin base cabinet pullout built on premium soft-close slides by the cooktop keeps spatulas, large spoons and kitchen items like cheese graters organized and close at hand.

Decorative Touch

This year designer Tiffany Brooks used framed art on the backsplash behind the five-burner cooktop. “I wanted to add humor, place art where it’s not expected and also make the kitchen less serious,” she says. “The art solved all of this.”

Versatile Cooking

The kitchen’s 30-inch, built-in combination convection microwave/convection wall oven offers a convection microwave on top that circulates heat for high-quality results, with a self-clean with steam-clean option on the lower oven for cooking versatility.

Grand-Prize Package

This kitchen also includes a check for $100,000, part of the wonderful prize package for HGTV Smart Home 2019.

Keeping Things Light

Glass-front cabinets around the range area keep this part of the kitchen from feeling too heavy. These cabinets offer the chance to display decorative items or finer glassware for special occasions.

Focal-Point Backsplash

The kitchen’s focal-point backsplash includes deep-emerald hexagon-shaped ceramic tiles with lots of movement. “They add texture and they’re very, very three-dimensional,” says designer Tiffany Brooks. Thanks to a hub device in HGTV Smart Home 2019, your smartphone or tablet on the kitchen counter turns into a universal remote that gives you control over your home entertainment and smart home devices.

Flexible Seating

The selection of seating options in the breakfast area makes the kitchen very user-friendly, with the ability to seat up to eight or nine people.

Unexpected Addition

The long custom church pew in the breakfast area in front of the island reflects this home’s sophisticated style, and adds an unexpected design detail that gives the kitchen a distinctive personality.

Handsome Beams

This view from the seating area in the great room shows the decorative oak box beams with a custom natural stain with a hint of gray that help emphasize the height of the space and add some depth and detail.

Stress-Free Environment

Both functional and stylish, the kitchen at HGTV Smart Home 2019 uses the benefits of modern technology to make cooking daily meals and entertaining much more stress-free and enjoyable.
