After getting married and combining families, Lori and Dan's kitchen has become a common stomping ground. Unfortunately, it's too small and restricted for the daily activity it receives. Although they both would like to open up the space and create a better flow, the couple's agreement ends there. With Lori's desire for earthy and rich colors and Dan's vision of a stark white room, it's up to host and interior designer Michael Payne and interior designer Karla Holland to merge the couple's contrasting ideas and expand their inadequate kitchen into a scrumptious European cookery with contemporary flair.
