In these behind-the-scenes clips, HGTV's J.D. Scott puts Kitchen Crashers host Allison Victoria to the test with a round of rapid-fire questions, the "hug, marry or knock out" dilemma, the hand-stand/push-up challenge, fan questions and more.
DIY Network is partnering with the USO and Marie Callender’s to give a Marine Corps veteran a larger functional kitchen for the whole family to enjoy. The small L-shaped kitchen was expanded into an open plan layout and pretty details added like this herringbone backsplash behind the range hood.
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.
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.
Alison and the Kitchen Crashers gang tackle a small, old, kitchen by first removing a huge wall that divides the space. Then, along with tons of natural light, the new stuff floods into this space starting with a raised floor topped with dark oak flooring. Next comes two different cabinet colors and quartz countertops, a custom bench and matching bead board insert into the glass cabinets, and a stunning chandelier. Alison throws in a last designer touch with a bold fabric window treatment and adds an entirely new lighting plan to literally double this room and leave the homeowners amazed with the final result.
Alison is stuck within the footprint of Maria and Matt's galley kitchen, so rather than fight the space, she pumps up the creativity and changes up the layout. First, she shortens a large window and moves the sink underneath to maximize countertop and cabinet space. After the soffits are out, ceiling height light sage-colored cabinetry comes in to compliment whitewashed laminate flooring and marbled black, cream and white granite countertops. Next up, smudge-proof black appliances including a double oven, cooktop, counter-depth refrigerator and stylish hood. To keep up with the black accents, Alison installs a heavy-duty black granite sink, faucet and sleek cabinet hardware. On the DIY side, Alison and the homeowners construct a mudroom with a custom boot tray to give this family more space and a vertical succulent piece and herb garden to bring nature indoors.
Alison and company find a contractor and his wife who are desperate for a new kitchen. Along with the crash came a freezing winter storm and tons of snow, but that didn't stop the work. Over the course of three days this space goes from dated and lifeless to stunning. After the cabinets are torn out, a new window is cut though a brick wall, new cabinets and two types of countertops are added along with new paint and lighting. Custom touches like a ladder pot rack, painted rug, and knife rack with hidden magnets finish out this beautiful new space that leaves both homeowners amazed.
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.
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.
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. Then custom items are built like a rolling bar cart, note panels in the cabinet doors, and a light fixture that gets a facelift with a "crate shade." There are both tears of joy and laughter when these homeowners finally get to see this enormous space.
Sara and Rob want a kitchen they can cook in for their family of five. Alison draws inspiration from Italian style kitchens with rustic features. She starts the design with a custom faux beam that separates the kitchen from the rest of the house and adds espresso cabinets, white marbled countertops, and rustic flooring with lots of texture. She adds a one of a kind wine pendant light that hangs over the custom mobile island that's perfect for chopping vegetables.
A kitchen that hasn't been touched since the 60's gets updated to a family friendly modern kitchen with a Mid Century style. This kitchen is complete with custom turquoise cabinets, penny round white backsplash, matching retro appliances, and cork flooring. Plus, Alison designs and installs floor to ceiling built-in shelving with wine racks in a walnut stain, floating shelving over the sink, and a sliding turquoise barn door that separates the kitchen from their studio.
Alison creates a modern space for a whole family. Ace and Raul's kitchen cabinets are the same quality as office furniture and the granite always looks dirty. Alison replaces those cabinets with stainless steel, glass, and high gloss white cabinets complete with grey countertops and a huge island in ice white. This kitchen is complete with a custom built wine rack with remote backlighting, a bar cart built from industrial pipes, and one of a kind cork coasters.
Jamie and Maria want to feel like they are outdoors in their new kitchen. Alison draws inspiration from nature with an earth tone palette. Alison completes the design with mosaic stone backsplash, granite countertops with a waterfall island, and hardwood floors. To add to the design, Alison builds a custom dog food bin from reclaimed hardwood and adds a tree design to the adjacent wall.
Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew find a crazy couple and literally change every inch of their Chicago Kitchen. While the wild antics, including karate moves ensue, the renovation starts. After a complete demo including the outside windows, the new stuff starts flying in, including a picture window, new floors, cabinets, countertops, colorful orange island and lighting. Alison and the homeowners set their sights on the custom touches like barstools, dimensional shelves and a map wall treatment. The homeowners are overwhelmed at the transformation.
