Feng Shui Fabulous Kitchen

Alison has her hands full with this dirty, cluttered kitchen in desperate need for a makeover. The couple's Chinese heritage comes into play in a feng shui inspired design that not only clears the clutter, but also brings in good energy and luck to the most important room in the house. Alison starts by improving the space planning and takes out a load-bearing wall to create an area for dining and organization with a custom-built mudroom. The range, a central fixture in a feng shui kitchen, is replaced and re-located between two windows to give the kitchen balance and an aging door is changed out with a glass door and window to bring in more light. Grass cloth wallpaper, neutral colored tile and countertops and a butcher block topped island complete with hideaway dog bowls give the space a zen feel, which according to feng shui helps aide in digestion. To top off the design, Alison helps the homeowners bring a piece of themselves into the kitchen with a calendar made out of paint samples and custom Chinese wall art.

Mountain Chic

Mitch and Maggie recently left the Colorado mountains for a big city condo. Their current kitchen has flimsy, generic cabinets better suited to a garage, and a stove that probably hasn't worked properly since the '70s. Alison starts by knocking down a wall separating the kitchen from a small bedroom. Clever blending creates the perfect color stain for new floorboards installed to patch bare spots created by the wall demolition. Alison literally brings the outdoors in with chunky live-edge shelves and an antler chandelier. Maggie and Alison build a rolling side table from a reclaimed log. Mitch and Alison construct a huge island table entirely from salvaged 2x4s. The focal point of the new dining area is a mural wall with a forest motif. Cream colored cabinets contrast with dark granite countertops, and rubbed bronze hardware gives a warm glow. Matte gray tiles bring a clean, linear look to the backsplash. Extra touches include a pot filler over the stove and a wine cooler in the new bar area.

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.

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 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.

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.

Flaming Table Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew tackle a section of real estate reserved solely for the family dog to do his business. This outdoor kitchen begins with a new door to access the space. All of the necessities required for a kitchen are brought in including marine grade cabinets, stone countertops, outdoor appliances and freshly painted furniture. Next Alison coaches the homeowners through three innovative custom projects: two dressers turned into planters, a fire table made from junk the homeowners wanted to throw away, and an herb garden made from recycled palettes.

Vegas Cabana Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew tackle an outdoor kitchen that starts with absolutely nothing. This Las Vegas home has an enormous back yard that Alison re-imagines with a hotel styled cabana kitchen at its hub. The transformation begins with new pavers, outdoor cabinetry, and an enormous shade structure with his and her sides and an outdoor TV. Other custom touches include a swinging day bed, wine barrel stave shelving, a carry along beer caddy, a folding truck-bed bench, outdoor wine bar and beer tap, plus desert friendly plants throughout the new space.

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.

Muted Metallic Makeover

Alison takes on this choppy and dated kitchen with a brand new layout. By removing a window and making a second window shorter, she's able to move the sink, flip the fridge location and create a focal wall with a range and hood that makes all the difference. Once the layout is locked down, navy and white cabinetry give the space a new shape and a butcher block island top, muted metallic backsplash and stainless steel appliances give it style.

Stormy Outdoor Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew reimagine a drab backyard to create a multi-level entertaining space. The fun starts with repurposing an existing deck and creating a huge upper level. Then they add an entire kitchen complete with outdoor cabinets, concrete countertops, pergola, and appliances. The lower level gets a seating area and beautiful planters all around. Alison also helps the homeowners create custom elements like concrete planters, a simple concrete bench, and dark stained bar stools.

Sleek Super Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers gang remove some walls and build others to form a gigantic kitchen space. After demo, what was once the most hated room in the house doubles in size to become one of the largest kitchens of the show. The transformation begins with new floors, cabinets, and countertops.

Privacy Please!

Alex and Joe have a giant deck on the roof of their garage, but they've let it sit for nearly eight years because they've been too overwhelmed by the lack of privacy to build it up. Luckily, Alison has ideas and starts her design by enclosing the space with slatted pine privacy walls. To add function, she designs three separate spaces, a kitchen, dining area and lounge. In the kitchen, Alison brings in a giant grill, beverage refrigerator, cabinets, granite countertops and a sink. Alison and Alex team up to make DIY side tables that will go in the lounge area, right by the new fire pit. In the elevated dining area, Alison has seating for 8, a turf floor and plants to give the space a cozy feel.
