Kim and Andy's outdated kitchen has no flow, no function and no personality. But they're clueless on where to start a remodel or how to agree on a style. Enter our superstar team who will blend their modern and traditional tastes together to turn their kitchen disaster into a family-friendly Great Room. A new galley layout makes the kitchen feel much more spacious and opens it up to create a cozy dining area on one end, and a unique, deconstructed bar for entertaining on the other side.
When Karen and Wayne moved into their '50s ranch home, they inherited a kitchen with pink countertops, pink sink and even a pink oven. They also desperately need help in their living and dining room, where they've collected a hodgepodge of furniture and decor from their travels. HGTV is up for the challenge and will give the kitchen a sleek, new modern design with better function and flow. A large pass-through will open up the kitchen into the living room where an underlying Asian-inspired theme will unify the spaces into one warm, inviting Great Room.
Even though Monique's kitchen has plenty of room, it's also got plenty of ugly. From the cheap, laminate parquet tile on the floor to the drop-down ceiling, it all needs to go. HGTV is going to turn this run-down relic into a great entertaining space. It will be filled with bold, colorful features to match Monique's diva personality including a vibrant glass backsplash, a sculptural flower installation created by a local artist, and a custom-coved metallic ceiling with a refurbished glass chandelier.
With its concrete features, brick walls, and open floor plan, Heather and Tony's condo is the ideal space for a couple of free-spirited artists. But they're ready to move onto the next stage of their life and replace or update their cheap furniture bought on the internet, as well as find a home for all their artistic pieces. Since they're about to be married, Meg is going to start them off on their new life together by creating a more sophisticated and cohesive design throughout the loft, but still have it reflect their fun and funky side. A custom-built loft with wood pillars, a trip to an auction house, and a visit to a local glass artist will result in some of the unique furnishings that will create the Bohemian look they love.
Ari and Orly call their 1940s home half bungalow and half trailer park. The hardwood floors are beautiful and the interior is homey but the kitchen is a mess. They definitely need the help of Meg to create their dream kitchen. Since more space is needed, the kitchen will be opened up into the adjacent study. A grand center island, complete with a built-in banquette and game table, will make this an amazing Great Room for the whole family. The overall style will be an updated art deco design in a palette of black, white, and yellow with a few unexpected twists in the mix.
