Season 3, Episode 1

The Kelley's Magnetic Kitchen

The bad news is Dena and Michael Kelly have a tiny Chicago kitchen with a growing family and need a lot more space. The good news is they have two huge advantages: a dining room just on the other side of the wall and Alison Victoria crashing the house to completely renovate this kitchen. From the floor to the ceiling, this kitchen gets a complete makeover in just three days with such unique features as a magnetic wall treatment and a refrigerator/freezer drawer system.

Chevron Chic Kitchen

Alison Victoria perfectly blends this couple's love of art and eclectic design with their need for more storage and functionality in the kitchen. The drab lifeless kitchen with its "surgery room" island and "poo brown" grout is transformed into a stylishly funky kitchen with a colored range and playfully modern chevron patterned tile. Homeowners can finally enjoy the view out of their kitchen window with a smart sink relocation to the revamped island. Rich wood flooring laid in a deceptively simple chevron pattern replaces old tile flooring and the unattractive cabinets are donated and replaced with a full sized pantry and cream-colored custom cabinetry. A banquet with a DIY chevron pattern painted on it accents the theme and adds just the right art deco touch to the seating area.

Feng Shui Fabulous Kitchen

Alison has her hands full with this dirty, cluttered kitchen in desperate need for a makeover. The couple's Chinese heritage comes into play in a feng shui inspired design that not only clears the clutter, but also brings in good energy and luck to the most important room in the house. Alison starts by improving the space planning and takes out a load-bearing wall to create an area for dining and organization with a custom-built mudroom. The range, a central fixture in a feng shui kitchen, is replaced and re-located between two windows to give the kitchen balance and an aging door is changed out with a glass door and window to bring in more light. Grass cloth wallpaper, neutral colored tile and countertops and a butcher block topped island complete with hideaway dog bowls give the space a zen feel, which according to feng shui helps aide in digestion. To top off the design, Alison helps the homeowners bring a piece of themselves into the kitchen with a calendar made out of paint samples and custom Chinese wall art.

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.

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.

Rustic Backyard Kitchen

It's not like Alison Victoria to back down to a challenge, but when a couple's indoor kitchen is too tiny for a crash, Alison decides to take the crash outside. With only a small grill in her way, Alison uses the empty backyard to create a rustic outdoor kitchen that feels just like an indoor space. By replacing old siding with ceramic tiles and shingles and building a cedar pergola and deck, the bare backyard turns into a room. Alison pulls out of all of the stops with a gourmet grill, refrigerator, sink, faucet and giant stone pizza oven. She gives the couple additional storage with cabinetry fitted for the outdoors and an island they'd never be able to fit in their traditional kitchen. To keep things fun, DIY swing seats, an herb garden and a log bench finish off the design.

Cramped Kitchen Re-Constructed

Sarah and Greg have no idea the endless storage possibilities their kitchen has until Alison gets her hands on it. She starts by knocking down a major wall between the kitchen and dining room and taking out soffits to make room for floor to ceiling maple cabinetry and a large peninsula for prep. Next, Alison moves the sink and range to give this kitchen the ideal kitchen work triangle. Once the layout is improved, Alison and the homeowners work to build custom closets in what was once a dead area in the dining room. Alison and Greg not only make the closets functional, but also bring in style when they add molding decor to each door. Sarah and Alison have a DIY project of their own, constructing a cutting board that slides along the peninsula countertop for both function and look. Alison keeps her finishes simple, but adds pop with a Moroccan style backsplash, warm toned nail down wood flooring and quartz countertops.

Flaming Table Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew tackle a section of real estate reserved solely for the family dog to do his business. This outdoor kitchen begins with a new door to access the space. All of the necessities required for a kitchen are brought in including marine grade cabinets, stone countertops, outdoor appliances and freshly painted furniture. Next Alison coaches the homeowners through three innovative custom projects: two dressers turned into planters, a fire table made from junk the homeowners wanted to throw away, and an herb garden made from recycled palettes.

Inspired By Nature

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.

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.

Skyline View Rooftop Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers gang find a blank slate rooftop with a million dollar view. The transformation begins with two new raised floors, one of Ipe and the other porcelain. Then it's time for custom made cabinets, granite countertops, commercial grade appliances and a modular seating/bed. In addition, Alison teaches the homeowners to make huge planting beds, custom rugs, and hot tub steps, all to accentuate the magnificent view from this fourth floor space. The final reveal leaves the homeowners amazed beyond their dreams with this space that started with literally nothing.

Colorful Kitchen Corrected

Patrick and Melissa love color, but they're doing it all wrong. Lucky for them, Alison found them just in time to make a big change on a small space. To create more space, Alison breaks into Melissa's closet and the kitchen pantry and pushes the kitchen wall back. Floor to ceiling dark wood cabinetry, white Quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances give the kitchen a blank canvas for color. Alison adds bold color with the backsplash and DIY wall art that brings nature into the kitchen. To top it all off, a DIY kitchen cart that can be stored beneath a window or rolled into the center of the room to be used as an island for prep and storage.

Bringing Black Back

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.

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. 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.

Rich Wood Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew wage war on a large kitchen that has way too many walls, taking away from the flow and the sense of space. This massive renovation starts some serious removal of everything in sight. Now the new stuff starts coming in starting with hand scraped flooring and dark wood cabinets. Then Alison pairs up with the homeowners to create custom elements such as a kitchen island, banquet bench with a waterfall edge and wine storage. Once the final touches like appliances, backsplash and lighting are installed the homeowners are left speechless with the final outcome.
