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.

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.
