Festive Firehouse Kitchen

They saved Kitchen Crashers host and interior designer Alison Victoria's condo from disaster, now it's her turn to give back and transform a historic Chicago firehouse's disastrous kitchen into a dream kitchen. Alison pulls out all of the stops, giving this firehouse a rolling island, a giant prep space, brand new stainless steel and high gloss red custom cabinetry and a coffee bar. Old and dirty appliances are replaced with four refrigerators and two dishwashers. Alison adds a personal touch to the space, creating a giant dedication wall to remember fallen officers and commemorate the history of the firehouse, complete with a hand-painted mural of the house logo. To keep the firefighters organized, Alison installs an information wall covered in chalkboard paint and a custom chalkboard calendar to keep track of daily chores and shifts. To combat the long shifts, Alison installs a full coffee bar and gives the firefighters two new coffee makers. A DIY pot rack made from an old ladder, some fireman inspired ornaments and a lot of holiday cheer makes this transformation a true holiday celebration.

Storage Unit Turned Kitchen

Alison Victoria is trying to get Tiffany to move into Graham's house by re-doing his bachelor pad-like kitchen. Alison starts by stopping Graham's hoarding habits, removing all non-kitchen items from the room-including hockey equipment, clothing and a desk fan. Next, she re-designs the space, recessing the refrigerator into a wall for a more built-in look and creating space for a custom-made booth and light up table. To create additional storage space, Alison calls for floor to ceiling cabinetry, complete with accent glass panels for upper cabinets and changeable brushed metal panels for lower cabinets. To add style to the look, Alison installs strips of silver thermoplastic material to create an accent wall and balances out the kitchen with a brushed stainless steel mosaic tile backsplash. To finish the look -- can lighting, LED cabinet lighting and a DIY light fixture that prices for hundreds of dollars in stores, but can be made for much less!

Time to Tear out that Carpet

Interior designer and host Alison Victoria picks a birthday girl out a large crowd after the young woman claims her carpeted kitchen is as bad as it gets. The green carpet is just the beginning of a long list of issues in this dated, isolated and underutilized kitchen. Alison gets to work, creating a pony wall next to the stairway, eliminating an awkward pantry and pushing the footprint of the kitchen back to create additional space and comfort. She keeps with a traditional yet modern look, bringing in espresso-colored cabinets and light natural-quartz countertops and replacing worn-out green carpeting with oak flooring. Dark-gray wainscoting, crown molding, hand-painted cement tiles and a custom DIY wine rack built out of a shipping pallet add the finishing touches to this classic yet modern kitchen.

Worst Kitchen in America

Alison and company go in search of America's Worst Kitchen and find it in Lake Wales, Florida. The first order of business is to gut the existing kitchen and build a new kitchen in the living room. This rather unusual approach to kitchen renovation is made all the more interesting by seaplanes, chickens, bows and arrows and a puppy. The end result is a gorgeous new space with new cabinets, center island, countertops, and custom made coffee table and sliding barn door. And just for good measure the old kitchen is transformed into a much needed linen closet in the middle of the house.

Super-Sized Kitchen Crash

Alison takes on a super-sized kitchen and brings the countertops, cabinets and appliances down to standard height. A small stage built underneath the existing kitchen is removed, a wall is opened up and a window is covered to make this kitchen functional, stylish and open. Dark espresso cabinetry with frosted doors tie into a unique bubbled glass island that appears to be.

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.

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.

Gypsy Rose kitchen goes gray with new cabinetry, quartz countertops and a textured backsplash.

Alison agrees to take on a growing family's kitchen on one condition- she gets to spill the beans about the new baby to the soon-to-be grandparents. Once the news is out, she gets to work on the kitchen and first on her hit list- remove the gypsy rose colored soffits to open up the space. Without much flexibility to change up the footprint, Alison brings in floor-to-ceiling gray cabinetry to bring the eye up and create more storage. She tears up decades of old flooring and replaces it with snap together hardwood flooring that flows seamlessly into their dining room. An old picture window filled with "chotchkies" is updated and the homeowners get to select which faucet they think will best match their new apron front, under mount sink. A DIY-friendly metallic paneled backsplash, stainless steel appliances and a DIY sliding organizer make this kitchen a space where Matt and Diana feel at home.

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.

Operation Kitchen Crash

When Alison walks into John and Kerry's kitchen, she realizes they weren't kidding around, the space is in desperate need for a crash. Without much additional space to expand into, Alison takes on the layout first, closing off several windows and breaking out the wall into the butler's pantry to make space for the L-shaped kitchen. With more wall space available, Alison adds dual colored cabinetry and open shelving in every direction, giving this family more storage and prep space than they ever thought possible. Granite countertops, laminate flooring and a DIY organization wall give the kitchen a fresh start and a chance at durability against the couple's four young boys.

Floating Trough Table Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew take a kitchen from one side of the house all the way to the other. Along the way, every single surface is replaced with major upgrades. From new hardwood flooring to an expansive kitchen island with a built in four foot stainless sink, this transformation literally doubles the space. Next, details are added like a custom floating table with metal trough down the middle, paintable wallpaper, new appliances, copper lighting fixtures and a one of a kind knife block using bamboo skewers. In the end the homeowners are not only emotional but absolutely blown away at what can be done when you have three days and Alison Victoria.
