We were blessed in so many ways by this project. Thankfully the wall was not load bearing. Our contractor traded us his labor for the hot tub. We were able to safely remove the hot tub when there were many moments that we weren’t sure it would make it! Plus, we were able to track down 9 year old discontinued flooring. God was certainly at work through the whole process and we are so grateful!


DO direct traffic away from work areas. A common problem suffered by small kitchens is too many circulation routes, which, in turn, disrupts the primary activity areas, such as the sink, stovetop, and dishwasher. And with all that overly used space in the kitchen, the dining room suffers from lack of use. Combining the kitchen and the dining rooms into one spacious family room/kitchen is a much better choice for a formal lifestyle. Plus, by opening up the kitchen to the dining room, you can easily direct traffic away from high traffic areas in the kitchen, and maximize efficiency.
2. Honesty is the Best Policy – A common aspect of architectural design that the most critical designers look out for is a space’s sincerity. A lot of commercial fads in construction make it such that materials are easily replicated and installed for the cheap, but what you will want to go for is timelessness. Go for natural materials or as natural as you can get them; try to avoid cheap “faux” materials that most stores would love to sell you.
A treasured and charm-ridden wood carved light fixture, white-washed barrel top dining tables, stainless steel and and a whimsical combination of semi-circles help make this sparkling open space eat-in kitchen clean and inviting. Lively conversation, a blaring television, and tabletop chatter are all elements that keep the cook cooking and wondering how to make it all taste better.
A wooden scroll with inscribed sentiment hanging on a thick burlap string is a focal point in this designer’s dream room. Two candlestick lamps in contrasting colors on an unfinished bread table completes the sleek sophisticated look, along with a rustic grocery store scale cloaked in greenery, a metal crate holding gourds and sprigs of fresh herbs.

Oinks, clucks, and moos give this delicately stressed white-washed plaque a hefty desire to find itself in the center of a country-themed kitchen. Placed against a wooden fresco caged bird painting and standing next to a spiny bird’s nest floral design holding two beautiful pale blue robin eggs, the plaque is an absolute statement in the cycle of nature.
Leta Foster has spent the last 35 years designing interiors so well that her three daughters followed in her footsteps, becoming the "& Associates" in her firm. When this breakfast room project in an early-1900s Richmond home came to Leta, she tapped daughter Sallie Giordano to collaborate. Together, they decorated the space to fit a young family while honoring its original architect, William Bottomley.

Another thing to think about is eliminating or relocating doorways that currently disrupt circulation. If you absolutely have to have multiple doorways in the kitchen, try to group them in one area to confine circulation to one or two routes. Another great rule of thumb to follow: Rooms that aren’t related to the kitchen shouldn’t connect to the kitchen.
Liven up your space by featuring pretty prints on rugs, window treatments, pillows nad more. Block print dhurrie rugs can command a pretty penny. To get the look for less, use a pretty wall stencil to apply a pattern to a large piece of artist canvas or drop cloth with a foam stencil brush. For an 8' by 10' rug, you'll need about a quart of standard interior paint in a satin finish. Wash stencil every other use to keep paint from clumping and elaving unwanted marks on the rug.

There are also a number of health and wellness related benefits that accompany opening up a kitchen into a dining room. For example, open concept kitchens generally create more natural light in the home, which helps to improve mood and productivity. Plus, the lack of walls will help facilitate more social interaction between family members, which can lead to better communication and relationships in the home.
