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.
