The kitchen of the newly renovated Jones home has been completely transformed. A wall was removed to increase the size of the kitchen and to add to the open feel of the home. Some key elements are the stainless steel appliances, farm sink, pantry, and subway inspired tile on the backsplash, as seen on Fixer Upper. (after)
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines installed a natural wood support beam above the breakfast bar. All new white cabinets and black marble countertops bring a modern look to the kitchen, and two hanging globe light fixtures illuminate the breakfast bar. A new stainless steel range and vent hood is surrounded by a beveled subway tile backsplash to complete the stylish look.
Joanna likes to plan a room around an "inspiration piece," and in a classic kitchen, it makes sense that she chose to make the island stand out. The kitchen island formerly was the communion table in an old church. "It is now the focal point and anchor for my kitchen," writes Joanna on her blog. "Once I determined where I wanted it, the rest of the kitchen fell in to place."
Chip and Joanna Gaines undertake an ambitious makeover on a century-old home for a newlywed couple who are undeterred by a challenging renovation. For the interiors, Joanna strives for a timeless design that honors the home's history while incorporating contemporary enhancements. From the experts at HGTV.com.
