Glowing Countertop Kitchen

Alison sets out to turn a mismatched kitchen that's falling apart into a sleek and sophisticated kitchen and dining space that looks like a million bucks. She starts by taking out a useless pony wall to open the kitchen into the dining room and re-designing the layout to create the perfect kitchen work triangle with appliances and cabinetry in optimal locations. Next, she takes on the ugly, cracking, pink and white tile flooring and replaces it with a neutral travertine tile. The dining area is made functional and spa-like with the addition of a DIY custom-built floating bench and light fixture made of coffee filters. Alison replaces the couple's rickety wine cart with a state-of-the-art wine fridge and DIY wine rack, creating an entire wall space for wine storage. And to compliment the espresso horizontal grain cabinets, onyx countertops and backsplash that light up and "wow" thanks to built-in LED lighting.

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!

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.

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.

Triple Stack Kitchen

Space is at a premium in this city kitchen, so Alison has to get creative. She blocks off a window to make space for a refrigerator, pantry and desk area and then builds the entire design upwards using triple stacked cabinetry. Track lighting, under cabinet lighting and in-cabinet lighting help light and break up the space. Quartz countertops that look like marble and stainless steel appliances, including a hood with a double extension to the ceiling, add to the look. A chevron patterned backsplash, DIY island and personalized desk area backsplash give the space a one-of-a-kind touch.

Worst Kitchen in America-Nebraska

Alison takes Kitchen Crashers to Nebraska to wage war on the worst kitchen in America. After the DIY viewers voted online to choose the kitchen, Alison and her gang literally move it from a small cramped corner to the other side of the house. The old kitchen space is converted to a mud room and the dining room becomes the kitchen. The transformation starts with a new mud room floor, cabinets in both rooms, a huge center island, and an amazing blue refrigerator. Alison also teaches the homeowners to create one of a kind custom touches like a coat rack using reclaimed door panels, a rolling ladder, and hand hammered distressed door faces. The end result is not only stunning, but huge and leaves the homeowners amazed.

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.

Spanish Eclectic Kitchen

Fred and Dani have an original kitchen from the 1970's complete with mismatched appliances, dated cabinets and fluorescent lighting. They beg Alison to give their kitchen an update that will mesh with the rest of their Spanish-style home and she delivers by removing the weird cabinetry along the curved brick wall, opening up the space to allow an 8-foot long island with stools, and plenty of prep space on the new granite countertops. The brick wall gets cleaned up, matching appliances get moved in, along with a beautiful wood-surround hood and a hammered copper sink. Finally she creates a rustic dining table, a pot rack out of a re-purposed garden trellis and fur-on-hyde stools, all with a Spanish flare.
