Episode 9

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.

Chicago Blue Pop Retro Kitchen

This Kitchen Crash starts with an inspiration piece: a blue mixer. Taking that idea and running with it, Alison creates a design for a retro makeover which totally changes a kitchen. This project starts with new flooring and includes white cabinets, beech butcher-block countertops, and custom touches like a hammered zinc island top, mesh inserts in the cabinet doors and a wall clock that is almost the entire wall. The crowning touch is the bright blue range and hand dyed sink that leave the homeowners overwhelmed.

Bachelor Brothers' Bar

Brothers Matt and Jack have lots of friends who like to hang out at their condo. There's plenty of space but a shortage of functionality: a double oven that's rarely used, cabinets that don't open, and an odd layout that separates cooks from guests. In three days Alison transforms a dated design into a bachelor haven. She starts by knocking down a poorly placed divider between the kitchen and living room. A custom wet bar includes a built-in kegorator and soda water dispenser. Dark two-toned cabinets and white granite countertops wrap around the new layout, and a modern range hood doubles as a sleek lighting source. Glass tiles in cream and brown tones pick up the theme. Custom glass shelves add storage. The centerpiece of the new space is a massive bar island with a poured concrete top, built from the ground up by Alison and the brothers. Alison shows Jack how to add interest to a focal wall. Matt and Jack learn how to personalize beer glasses for friends and family.

Episode 6

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.

Episode 12

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.

Episode 3

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.
