Season 1, Episode 10

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!

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.

Super-Sized Kitchen Crash

Alison takes on a super-sized kitchen and brings the countertops, cabinets and appliances down to standard height. A small stage built underneath the existing kitchen is removed, a wall is opened up and a window is covered to make this kitchen functional, stylish and open. Dark espresso cabinetry with frosted doors tie into a unique bubbled glass island that appears to be.

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.

Operation Kitchen Crash

When Alison walks into John and Kerry's kitchen, she realizes they weren't kidding around, the space is in desperate need for a crash. Without much additional space to expand into, Alison takes on the layout first, closing off several windows and breaking out the wall into the butler's pantry to make space for the L-shaped kitchen. With more wall space available, Alison adds dual colored cabinetry and open shelving in every direction, giving this family more storage and prep space than they ever thought possible. Granite countertops, laminate flooring and a DIY organization wall give the kitchen a fresh start and a chance at durability against the couple's four young boys.

Floating Trough Table Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew take a kitchen from one side of the house all the way to the other. Along the way, every single surface is replaced with major upgrades. From new hardwood flooring to an expansive kitchen island with a built in four foot stainless sink, this transformation literally doubles the space. Next, details are added like a custom floating table with metal trough down the middle, paintable wallpaper, new appliances, copper lighting fixtures and a one of a kind knife block using bamboo skewers. In the end the homeowners are not only emotional but absolutely blown away at what can be done when you have three days and Alison Victoria.

Happily Ever After Kitchen

When Alison meets soon-to-be-newlyweds Mike and Angie, she sets out to give them the best wedding gift ever - an elegant yet rustic kitchen makeover with room to seat all of their guests. To give this outdated kitchen a wedding-worthy look, she replaces the dingy cabinets and countertops with beautiful two-tone glazed cabinetry and a shimmery white stone countertop. Alison optimizes the flow of the kitchen by rearranging the appliance layout to create the perfect work triangle and opens up the ideal space for a bar, ready for a champagne toast. To add some country charm, Alison and Mike add interest to the ceiling by creating distressed wood beams that tie in to the reclaimed barn wood wainscoting. As if this wasn't enough, Alison gives this lucky bride and groom-to-be a piece of her own kitchen, which she and Angie repurpose into a beautiful new table with a rich history.

The Kitchen With Only A Bathroom Sink

Alison and her Kitchen Crashers crew find a couple who have renovated every room in the house except the kitchen. But this kitchen has a bathroom sink for the dishes and the refrigerator is in the basement. After removing the terrible sink and the open shelving the transformation begins. First new cabinets and counter-tops are added and a real gigantic sink. Next comes the custom tricks like a built in bench and upholstered bench top as well as stained wood wall sconces. The tears flow when the homeowners finally get to see their new space that finally is a kitchen, and it is amazing.

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.

During the chaos Alison teaches the homeowners to raise the level of their floor, install beadboard, stain a gigantic butcher block island top, and decoupage a cake server. After three days these homeowners are beyond words with excitement and throw down complete with rotisserie and lamb. OPA!

Retro Family Functionality

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.

Coeur D'Alene Cabin Crash

Alison and her crew are in Idaho to crash the Blog Cabin kitchen. With the walls already up and drywalled, Alison and Grundy can concentrate on building some big DIYs. Up first, a giant table made of black walnut with custom light-up lettering for the formal dining area. For the kitchen, they build stools out of fresh timber, channeling out sections and adding a resin and copper mix that will sparkle underneath the breakfast bar. Finishes include dual colored cabinetry with under cabinet lighting, dual colored quartz backsplash and countertops, stainless steel appliances and a custom-built chef's pantry.

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.
