Challenge Time

After last week's grueling bathroom renovations, it's time to tackle an even scarier space: the kitchen.

Cold Hard Cash Prize

The winner of this week's challenge will win $10,000 to take home with them after the competition.

The Black Team's Secret Weapon

After last week's bathroom victory, the Black Team won a day of help from behind-the-scenes reporter and HGTV designer David Bromstad.

Shauna and Anicka: The Design Plan

Kitchens sell houses, so the sisters on Team Red decide to spend the majority of their remaining renovation fund on the kitchen makeover. They budget $15,000 for the space.

Shauna and Anicka: Kitchen, Before

Crumbling cabinetry, barely-functioning appliances and years of grime met the sisters when they arrived at their condo.

Shauna and Anicka: Kitchen, After

The sisters chose creamy white cabinets in a transitional style that will appeal to a wide range of buyers, plus new stainless steel appliances. The neutral color palette is accented by a thin orange stripe.

Shauna and Anicka: The Sisters and the Judge

Judge Scott McGillivray loved the Red Team's neutral palette, but wasn't a fan of the orange stripe or the unfinished details. He also questioned their choice to skip the purchase of a new washer and dryer. The sisters spent $15,543.53 on the finished design.

Curtis and Amanda: The Design Plan

Curtis and Amanda are also willing to spend big when it comes to the kitchen design. They plan to spend no more than $20,000 on the renovation, which will include converting large water heater to a space-saving tankless version.

Curtis and Amanda: Kitchen, Before

A nearly-demolished kitchen greeted the Silver Team when they moved into the run-down Unit B condo.

Curtis and Amanda: Kitchen, After

The Silver Team chose traditional cream floor-to-ceiling cabinetry to make the ceilings appear lofty. Rustic details and turquoise accents unite the kitchen with the palette used in the rest of the house.

Curtis and Amanda: Judges' Tour

Curtis and Amanda explain their design choices to judge Scott McGillivray. He loved their tankless water heater decision and cabinet choice, but thought the pressed tin backsplash was "very busy." The couple went over budget, with their renovation price coming in at $22,044.03. That leaves them just over $300 to complete the remaining rooms.

Brian and Craig: The Design Plan

Brian and Craig budget the least money among the teams — about $14,000 — for their kitchen renovation.

Brian and Craig: Kitchen, Before

The twins' kitchen was dark, dreary and run-down on condo move-in day.

Brian and Craig: Kitchen, After

White, modern cabinetry and a soft gray paint color gives the twins' kitchen the "bachelor pad" feel they've established in other rooms. A custom built-in bar and desk create additional functionality in this space.

Brian and Craig: The Judging

Judge Scott McGillivray loved the Blue Team's custom bar and desk, but not the unfinished plumbing. Brian and Craig spent less than any other team on the kitchen renovation, with the final tally coming in at $14,223.21.

John and Whitney: The Design Plan

John and Whitney also decide to spend big in the kitchen to create a U-shaped design and an adjacent dining area. They budget $14,000 for the project.

John and Whitney: Black Team's Secret Weapon

As a prize for the bathroom challenge win, David Bromstad helps the couple for one day of this six-day challenge.

John and Whitney: David's Design Consult

John works with David to measure and cut kitchen trim.

John and Whitney: Kitchen, Before

This cramped, crumbling space greeted the couple on condo move-in day.

John and Whitney: Kitchen, After

Modern white cabinets, sparkling quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances give this remodeled kitchen a fresh, clean feel.

John and Whitney: Kitchen, After

A bar and dining area complete the remodeled space.

John and Whitney tour the kitchen with judge Scott McGillivray, who loved their modern design scheme, but not the wasted corner cabinet space or the cramped appliance layout. High labor costs made the couple spend $17,300.20 on their renovation, $3,000 more than they originally budgeted.

Scott McGillivray Tallies the Scores

Judge Scott McGillivray writes down the pros and cons of each space before declaring this week's winning team — and the recipients of $10,000!

And the Winner Is...

The Silver Team! Scott was impressed with Curtis and Amanda's decision to open up the space with a tankless water heater, and he loved the remodeled room's ample cabinet space.

Congratulations, Curtis and Amanda

The Silver Team reacts to their first Flipping the Block win.
