Kitchens are the heart of the home, and Joanna Gaines has a whole lot of heart to go around! Her design inspiration stretches from East Coast to West Coast, country to lakeside, France to Spain, and you can see it all in the incredible kitchens she designs for Fixer Upper. Check out 23 of our favourite kitchens from Chip and Joanna Gaines, and we bet you anything you’ll be inspired for a little kitchen fixer upper of your own!
Welcome to the Country
Love the wood and marble accents in this dreamy country kitchen. Dark grout makes subway tile pop, a trend you’ll be seeing more and more. Another trend? Creating an eye-catching range and accent wall to make the stove the star of the space.
The New Classic Blue
One of the biggest kitchen trends of the past couple of years is deep blue cabinetry, especially just the lowers. Here, it’s at its best paired with creamy marble counters, white uppers and mid-tone wood.
If a classic white kitchen is on your dream Pin board, then look no further. Darker counters break it up, and there’s that dark grout again!
Matching wide plank islands anchor a large space, while darker cabinets and vintage lighting offer contemporary contrast. It’s a lesson in how to mix new and old, farmhouse and industrial.
The mix of white and wood, that skinny long island and the black pendants are effortlessly cool. And storage will never be a problem, thanks to that wall of cupboards.
If you’ve watched Fixer Upper, you’ve seen the scalloped edge Joanna uses here on the range hood before. It adds just a touch of vintage charm to any space, especially when paired with a farmhouse sink and black drawer pulls.
East Coast Inspired
Doesn’t this feel like a Connecticut country home? The marble-topped island with turned wood legs, wide plank floors and over-sized range with crown moulding surround create a Martha Stewart vibe we’re digging.
This home was a style departure for Joanna, but she pulled off the Mid-Modern Century look with aplomb. The kitchen benefits from a touch of 2000s with that stunning waterfall edge marble island. But the glass and brass open shelving unit feels both new and old.
A butcher block island with plenty of space and seating offers earthy contrast with a blue-grey glass backsplash and antique-inspired bar stools.
Deep teal cabinets + black fixtures and lighting + luxurious marble counters + dark grout + subway tile to the ceiling add up to elegant, old world style.
An Eclectic Mix
Another stunning tile backsplash, but the most surprising thing is how many styles are working together here. There’s shiplap, reclaimed wood open shelving on black brackets, a black faucet, brass pot filler and vintage pendants.
Black and White Backsplash
You can’t take your eyes off the Spanish tile backsplash, and for good reason. It turns a simply beautiful kitchen into one you will never forget. Black accents in the drawer pulls, door frame and range hood tie it all together.
Ocean-blue beadboard, clear glass pendants and bistro stools create a bright and beachy vibe, and the barn door adds a touch of rustic farmhouse.
A window seat in the kitchen? If you have the space, please go for it. It’s the perfect spot to curl up with a coffee and you don’t need to sacrifice storage with drawers underneath.
Home on the Range
This one-of-a-kind banquette with built-in table is a multi-tasker — there’s also bar stool seating on one side and it includes storage. Unpainted shiplap and iron accents make this the rustic ranch house of our dreams.
Blue may be a kitchen trend, but you’ll never tire of it. Here, the range hood and accent tile pick up on the cool tones, while wood beams and French stools warm up the space.
Add a Mantel
Here’s a simple, yet effective way to add impact around the stove — lay the subway tile in a herringbone pattern and add a fireplace-style mantel in a natural wood tone.
The light wood of the island brings out the soft peach tones of the tile work behind the stove. We love the unique range hood, with antique corbels and Spanish-influenced plaster finish.
There’s something about the plaid accent tile surrounding the stove, beadboard details and green island that’s giving us preppy ’80s vibes in the best possible way.
Clean lines, wood beams and showpiece floating shelves feel more West coast than country, and it works beautifully.
Home on the Houseboat
This contemporary houseboat has a sleek, masculine style and takes advantage of that gorgeous view.
Down to the Bricks
Exposed brick, wide plank floors, butcher block island and vintage pendants create a cool, industrial vibe while still feeling like a warm family kitchen.
Exposed Brick Beauty
Painting the exposed brick white and maintaining the original wood ceiling and beams keeps this cozy kitchen with one foot in the past.
