Season 16, Episode 9

A facelift for an old, tiny kitchen.

Martin and Emily are newlyweds and new homeowners starting their life together in an 80-year-old house. They were thrilled to be able to buy their first home, but since moving in, all they do is work! They leave together for work in the morning, Emily to teach at a nursery school and Martin to his job in promotions, and when they get home, 'house' work takes over evenings and weekends. The first thing they did was paint over all the bold orange and dark green walls, and they've added some touches of their own, but for all their hard work, the house feels drab and unfinished. Their tiny kitchen is open to the dining room, which could be perfect for entertaining over casual meals with friends, but it's far from the cozy and inviting space they're working toward. The peachy cabinetry, dingy looking countertops, poor lighting, and old backsplash are really putting a damper on their fun. So Martin and Emily have asked Candice to help give their kitchen a facelift and update the space to suit their personalities, lifestyle, and budget.
