The Best Fixer Upper Kitchens

Need kitchen inspiration? Check out Joanna Gaines best kitchens from Fixer Upper. And see the products to help you create the look in your own home.

Happy Saturday guys! I hope you’re in the mood for some beautiful home inspiration because today I’ve rounded up the absolute best Fixer Upper kitchens. These are just my personal favorites, although I think it would be impossible to find a Joanna Gaines kitchen that I don’t love. Each one is so unique and gorgeous in its on way, I could easily spend hours looking at these photos and studying each little detail. If you’re a regular around here you probably know that we are embarking on a kitchen remodel, so I’m gathering all the inspiration I can find. I think it’s always really helpful to spend time studying design you love in order to know how you want to proceed with your own home or renovation.  Not to mention it’s a lot of fun if you enjoy looking at beautiful homes like I do!

JoJo is definitely the queen of beautiful design and I think these kitchens prove it–each one is truly a masterpiece. It’s hard not to have major home envy while browsing these photos. But the thing I have to remind myself of when looking at these kitchens it that an entire team of renovation experts helped bring these amazing before and afters to life. Right now I’m feeling so irritated with that wall in our kitchen, the one that can’t come down for 339 reasons (check out this post if you’re wondering what I’m talking about) and the low 1980’s ceiling that haunts me in my dreams. And I’d be lying if I told you that looking at these gorgeous kitchens doesn’t make me a bit frustrated about what we’re working with and our limitations. And you might be feeling the same way about your own kitchen–after all, kitchens are the heart of the home. But here’s the thing that I’m realizing–few of us will ever have the budget or resources to have our dream home. It’s just not going to happen for most of us. And that’s OK, because at the end of the day life isn’t about how gorgeous our kitchen is or how impressive our livings room are–what matters is the memories we’re making with the people we love the most in these places we call home. Sure, you take time to make it your own. You invest money, energy, and care into creating your happy place and giving it the attention it deserves, but you do the best you can with what God has given you. Once you’ve done that, the rest doesn’t really matter.

So I hope today you can look at these gorgeous kitchens, maybe find a few ideas or looks that inspire you, but don’t for one minute let it get you frustrated about where you’re at with your own home. Instead go love the home you have, improve what you can as time and budgets allows, but most of all be grateful–no matter how low your kitchen ceiling is!

      Love that you love what matters! Thank you for sharing Joanna’s amazing skills and vision fixer but thank you more for your encouraging words… so needed since it’s nearly 1am can’t sleep because I am thinking about my kitchen! How easy it is to be distracted and grateful to read your words to be redirected on His plan and knowing that what matters most is the love that will be shared in our kitchen!

    Sarah, great job pulling these beautiful kitchens together. Agree with you Joanna does a wonderful job! Good luck on your kitchen project. Can’t wait to see what you come up with. I have wanted to do something to my kitchen but I’m happy with it for now as like you said make memories with what God has given us. I’m blessed to have what I have as others have a lot less. Thank you for this read!

    Good morning. Thanks for the wonderful post. We all want magazine worthy kitchens and I look at my kitchen everyday figuring out how I can remodel…if I should paint the cabinets or not. So many wonderful memories have made in my kitchen and I think that I am blessed what God has given me. Keep sending pictures of your remodel…it keeps me inspired

    Sarah – you will feel so much more accomplished when you’re done with your kitchen, than if you could just wave a magic wand and make it happen. 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you do – know it’ll be just as much an inspiration as a “Fixer Upper.”

      I sure hope so Dina! It’s been a series of challenges so far. I’m hoping it gets easier soon!

    Great job, Sarah! We are redoing our entire home. The kitchen will be last, probably late fall or next winter. I will be keeping a close eye on your project for my inspiration too!! I have a wall that can’t be moved and a 1963 low ceiling.
    Thanks for your posts!

      Sounds like we are in similar situations Jodi. Darn those important walls and low ceilings. Fingers crossed we survive this remodel!

    So my fave kitchen was the “Nana’s Kitchen”, second from the bottom. I really liked the ‘alcove’ around the stove. Not sure how practical it would be in the long run (especially for cleaning those shelves), but it’s really special.

    I agree, Sarah… our homes are about creating memories and making a peaceful/restful place for our families… and, ultimately, bringing glory to God, even in the way we ‘create’ in our homes. Bringing a little taste of Heaven, here on Earth. What we do with what He has given us, and being content in that, really brings joy in our lives.

      So happy to hear you agree Julie! What we do with the things He has given us is so important. And home really is all about making memories with the ones you love the most.

  7. I love everything Joanna touches too!! 🙂 I think my favorite of these is the one with black and white backsplash and wood island…but man, they are all so pretty! We’re getting ready for a small kitchen reno too! Can’t wait to see yours.

    I have a house built in 1923. They remodeled the kitchen and put up paneling before we bought it. I am looking to paint it and cabinets but I am very confused on what to do. I was thinking walls being a creamy beige and cabinet bottom a farmhouse red. With the cabinet top being the beige too. Any help?

    I am looking forward to your posts. We are at the beginning of a remodel of our 1986 home. It took us a few months last year to unwrap the wallpaper from the walls. As soon as the weather warms a little bit, we can paint the new trim and baseboards. Your right that it is a little nerve racking, that is hoping that we are making the right decisions. To paint or not to paint – that is the question (kitchen cabinets)! Will be following you and your inspiration. (Hoping to do the archway from the Coffee House Fixer Upper! Best Wishes! Tami

    Hello I’m remodeling my small house. My style is modern farm house. For my walls I chose alabaster for trim extra white and for cellings delicate white. I want to choose an accent wall and the kitchen island a gray color. What gray do you recommend and what accent color do you recommend?

  • Sometimes I wonder what my kids will think when they look back on these little squares I share here everyday. I hope to make them proud in every thing I do, but most of all I hope they see how deeply I love them. I woke up this morning feeling desperate for time to slow down so I can soak in this season with them. These are truly the best days. And even on the hard days & the days I feel like I can’t do it all, I love this life & I’m so grateful to God for every minute of it. 💛🙏

  • Happy Friday!! 🙋‍♀️ I’m talking about one of my favorite things on the blog today: SKINCARE!! You guys, for the first time ever this week I got on stories with NO makeup. Not one drop of foundation or concealer on my face & no filter. I know that may not sound like a big deal to some of you, but as someone who’s seriously struggled with skin issues throughout her entire life, it’s a HUGE step for me. I’ve always felt SO self-conscious of my skin & it’s been a struggle since I was in high school. But my skin has improved so much & I owe that to @tula. I’ve been religiously using their products for close to two years now & I’ve seen major improvements through that time. 🙏🙏 I shared all about their holiday gift kits on the blog today, so hop over there if you want to check it out. They’re offering some amazing kits, so now is a great time to stock up on your favorites & of course they make great gifts too. AND the kind folks at @tula gave me a new coupon code for you guys—you can use SARAHJOY for 20% off your order 🎉🎉 #partner #tula
  • My favorite time of day— when the sun goes down & everything starts to glow. That’s when it really feels like Christmas is coming. There’s just something magical about those twinkling lights! ✨✨
