Bringing Sexy Back

An artsy couple gets the kitchen of their dreams - a sexy, retro styled space complete with a lounge area and area to cook. To achieve big things in this tiny space, Alison has to make the most of what she has by extending the cabinets to the ceiling, covering a window with new cabinetry, re-structuring the seating area and building out an existing pantry using pipes and wood. To add style to the space, Alison brings in dark flooring and even darker gray cabinetry that matches exactly with the paint color. To spice up the cabinetry, Alison fills the upper doors with a DIY antiqued mirror project that causes a few headaches to figure out. A 3D reclaimed wood backsplash, surprise throwback refrigerator, built-in speaker system and re-furbished custom chairs make this kitchen a place where this couple can cook breakfast, have cocktails, entertain and hang out.

Episode 7

Thinking Outside the Box

Tom and Katey's kitchen has too many straight lines and not enough color. From the cold, white ceramic floor tiles to the dated brown cabinets to the fake beams on the ceiling, nothing flows. An oddly placed peninsula interrupts movement. Their cooktop is failing and their oven is worse. Alison's transformation starts by knocking down a wall separating the kitchen from the dining room. A custom island adds work space and casual seating. White shaker cabinets brighten a dark corner. The focal point of the room is an upscale ocean-blue glass backsplash behind the range hood in oval mosaic pattern. Linear blue glass continues behind the sink, arranged in a simple brick pattern. A formerly unused wall is treated with shallow blue cabinets below a storage unit created from apple crates stained and installed by Tom and Alison. Marble countertops continue the natural, organic feeling. Katey helps Alison create a cornice board covered with cheery floral fabric in blue, green and brown hues.

Coffee Kitchen Crash

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers gang find a barista with a terrible kitchen. Using coffee and the love of it as her inspiration, this space gets demolished from top to bottom. The renovation starts with a bead board ceiling treatment, new coffee colored cabinets, and granite countertops. Custom touches follow with a subway tile backsplash, spice rack repurposed from a corner cabinet, and storage area created using coffee cans as cubbies. After three days the new space is amazing and the homeowners are overwhelmed.

Urban Farmhouse Kitchen

Alison is stumped when she walks into Matt and Anne's hazardous, mismatched kitchen. The layout is all wrong and the finishes are worse. In three days, she overhauls the space - first changing glass doors into windows, moving the sink across the room and eliminating a clunky peninsula to make room for a real dining area. Next, Alison brings in basil colored cabinetry and adds dummy strap hinges for extra style. A dark birch engineered hardwood floor levels out the space and hand-painted tile, sconce lighting and butcher block countertops give the kitchen an urban farmhouse feel. A DIY burlap pin board and repurposed ladder pot rack help the homeowners stay organized in style. And to finish off the look, Alison installs a barn wood accent wall made out of re-claimed wood.

Barn Door Blue Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew find a kitchen that one of the homeowners refers to a series of band aids. Over the years, problems have been covered in the quickest way possible. So this renovation starts from the bottom with new wood flooring, blue cabinets, and eco-friendly countertops. Next blue patterned wallpaper is added along with a new island which houses a pot rack. And custom features like a sliding barn door, framed cork board and radiator pot rack give the space a unique designer touch. Throw in a few little things like all new appliances, paint and lighting and the homeowners are left stunned, speechless, and really happy.

Retro Kitchen With a Twist

Two sisters who have been stuck in their family's hand-me-down kitchen are given a chance to make their mark on the space. Alison Victoria takes this mismatched kitchen down to the studs and starts fresh with bright yellow paint, vintage grey/blue cabinetry and white washed oak flooring. Alison revamps the layout by removing their awkwardly placed kitchen table and replacing it with an island - complete with a light grey-flecked Silestone countertop - perfect for prepping and homework. A small indoor porch is transformed into a light and bright dining area complete with a DIY table made from used cookbooks and a repurposed door. Keeping with the girls love for cooking and baking, Alison personalizes the cabinet hardware using tiny metal spoon, fork, rolling pin and knife themed hardware. To top off the retro-inspired look, a DIY clock mounted directly to the wall, made out of vintage hand mixers.

Nine Foot Wall of Wood Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew have their work cut out for them in a creepy, old kitchen with nine foot ceilings. The job begins with the complete demo of everything except a few pieces of wallpaper. Then the new stuff starts flying in like wood flooring, white cabinets, paper countertops and an amazing wood wall covering that literally covers every inch of an enormous nine foot tall wall. Then appliances, and all new lighting are added and a few custom touches like trays using the old wallpaper, a step stool, and a hidden vegetable drawer. When this kitchen is finally revealed, the homeowners are speechless with gratitude.

Episode 3

Kitschy Kitchen

Alison has her hands full with Jeff and Becky's 70's style kitchen that's layout is causing major rifts between the couple. To start, Alison removes the peninsula and flips the layout, putting the refrigerator and built-in oven where the peninsula once was. Next, she shortens the soffits to allow for more space for the solid alder wood cabinetry. Below the window, an under utilized space in the room, Alison designs a desk for homework or just hanging out. Blue fog colored concrete countertops, light yellow marmoleum flooring and two types of backsplash bringing in gray and blue tones give the kitchen a kitschy look. For a clean, crisp effect, Alison wires outlets into the bottom of the cabinets and completes the look with a solid glass backsplash, void of any outlet holes. Because the homeowners love lighting, DIY track light covers and a one-of-a-kind lamp finish off the space.

Urban Rooftop Retreat

Alison picks the perfect spot for an urban kitchen... a rooftop four stories above the ground. The blank-slate is converted into the ultimate space to cook, entertain, relax and enjoy the city. The roof is covered with ipe wood decking and slate stone and is topped with a pergola with retractable shades. A state-of-the-art grill with stainless cabinetry along with a custom-built ipe clad bar create an area to cook while a dining table and cocktail table give the rooftop a place for entertaining. DIY planters and a DIY bamboo screen provide both privacy and style to finish off the space.

Chic Indoor Picnic Kitchen

Alison is thrilled when she sees this giant kitchen stuck in the 70's - the perfect opportunity for a big crash with a fun theme. Alison decides to combine Steve's love for the outdoors and Gizelle's eclectic personality in an indoor picnic inspired kitchen. Where there was once a diner-style dining nook, Alison replaces the oversized table with a picnic table and nature inspired stencil. The footprint of the kitchen is flipped to create a more functional space and to make room for a giant island for prep and entertaining. In keeping with the outdoor feel, Alison brings in white washed wood-like flooring that picks up the colors from the natural brown cabinetry. To add pop, the kitchen is decked out with a bright red range and hand-painted backsplash tile. Alison gets the homeowners involved by silk screening a cloud-like pattern on glass inserts for the pantry cabinetry, covering an accent wall in textured paint to look like the outdoors and refurbishing an old pantry inside of a new cabinet.
