In order to add a stove, cabinets and appliances in the kitchen, the french doors had to be removed and a wall need to be added. Because valuable light was being taken away, the Kitchen Cousins added two skylights into the ceiling. After tearing the dining room wall down and turning the dining room into the kitchen, there is a whole new flow and life to the atmosphere and energy of the kitchen and dining room area. What once was a cold empty ding room is now a large kitchen that opens to a large dining room.
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.
When the Kitchen Cousins tore down the wall that separated the kitchen from the dining room, it gave the Pasquella family an open area that feels twice the size. What was once a home office, is now a large dining room area that sits directly across from a new kitchen and center island. By taking down that wall, the family can cook and entertain without feeling separated. By removing the wall, the kitchen now has twice as much light. The new dining room table was custom made by John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino from old wood and steel.
As seen on HGTV's Cousins Undercover, the newly remodeled kitchen of the Weber family home features an open concept with the old wall removed that separated the kitchen and dining room. The new kitchen has new cabinets, new kitchen appliances, new kitchen island with butcher block top and a new 12-foot glass door leading out to the new deck. (after)
Moving the dining area closer to the kitchen creates breathing room for this living room, while a floor-to-ceiling bookcase adds lots of vertical storage. The finished living room now has a new propane fire place, an old rustic American flag, and new chairs highlighted by blue pillows.
Sleek and stylish, this gray contemporary living room uses brightly-colored flowers and pillows to add an extra burst of color and contrast that bring the room to life.
This country kitchen pairs together natural wood Shaker cabinets with a top row of painted green cabinetry that acts as a color accent to the space. Rust orange granite countertops, a neutral tile backsplash and dark brown wood floors finish off the overall look of the space.
