Luckily, the Kitchen Cousins are in LA filming Design Star and decide to pop in for a visit. The Cousins have a ton of ideas, including a 3D-looking backsplash, an island inspired by a dining room table, and opening up the adjoining rooms to create more space.

Weekend Warriors

A home renovation project ends in disaster, leaving Lynn kitchen-less for over 8 months. Trying to maintain a sense of home for her 11 year old son, Lynn manages to prepare three meals a day and a complete Christmas dinner in a bare room with exposed studs, holes in the floor and only a microwave and toaster oven for appliances. As Lynn's patience wears thin, Anthony and John step in and vow to complete the renovation in just one weekend. But with french doors that lead from Lynn's kitchen to a several foot drop, John and Anthony feel the need to add on to the project - building a massive deck from which Lynn can relax and watch her son play. Lynn is a supermom struggling in a construction-site kitchen and the Cousins transform her life in 48 hours.

Fireplace Fiasco

But as construction progresses, the fireplace they fell in love with becomes their biggest nightmare. Will this hearth be the centerpiece of the home, or will the whole job go down in flames?

Copper Show Stopper

With a little one on the way, Mike and Danielle have a kitchen with some BIG design problems. The layout is anything but functional - there are doors that lead to nothing, strange cabinet configurations, and a useless standalone dishwasher. And hidden inside the cabinets is a radiator that makes the countertops hot to the touch and has the homeowners steaming. John and Anthony come up with a beautiful design that opens up the first floor and ties the overall design of the home together. Rustic black cabinets with a weathered look show off the home's colonial style. But the real design feature is the use of copper... everywhere. A copper tile backsplash and a beautiful copper range hood in the center of the room add a warm feeling to the space. And a custom wrapped copper countertop for the bar area is a one-of-a-kind showpiece. This is a home built for a growing family that they'll be enjoying for years to come!

This Kitchen is too Hot and Needs a Spice Rack

Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri tackle a suburban kitchen that's desperately in need of a renovation. The appliances are older than the cousins themselves, the doorway from the dining room into the kitchen is tiny and storage is non-existent. One pet peeve of the homeowner? The limited storage means his spices are stored all over the kitchen, which is hard when he's making dinner. And with no air conditioning, this space is unbearably hot! Anthony and John start by tearing down the wall between the kitchen and dining room, creating a much bigger, lighter space. They rip up the multiple layers of floors, putting in beautiful hardwoods and build a custom spice rack out of reclaimed wood. They also refurbish a beloved a chopping block island, making it much more functional for the homeowners. And the final touch? An air conditioner to cool things off!

The Built-in Family Relic and the New Kitchen Dilemma

The Kitchen Cousins, Anthony and John, meet Nalini, a single woman living in Jersey City home she grew up in. As soon as the cousins walk in, they realize that the main obstacle to being able to design a functional kitchen is a huge built-in that's been there since she was a child. Nalini is against getting rid of this old family heirloom, so the cousins decide to come up with two different designs for the kitchen: one of them will preserve the piece of furniture, while the other will create more countertop space but get rid of the built-in. On the design meeting day, Anthony and John are hoping that she will choose the more functional one that allows them to remove the built in. Will she go for it? The cousins also run into trouble with the original subway tile. Their initial plan was to salvage it, but when there's an unexpected problem, they have to think fast to come up with a solution. On reveal day, will Nalini be astonished by the look of the new kitchen or wish she had her old space back?

Leave it to the Professionals

This week, Kitchen Cousins John and Anthony take it to the floor (guy that is). They are renovating Rich and Shane Svorec's home. Rich does the floors for their company, Brunelleschi Construction, so the Kitchen Cousins want to give him a great kitchen. John and Anthony meet up with eager Rich and Shane at their house and discover that Rich took on a DIY kitchen renovation that went sour! In his defense, the kitchen had a wall that blocked off the entire space so Rich took matters into his own hands and knocked it down. Now he and his wife live in a kitchen that depends on a ceiling made of plastic wrap to keep the insulation from falling in their children's breakfast, not to mention struggling with ancient appliances that barely work. The knocked down wall gives the cousins a completely clean slate but the Svorec's have a pretty intense wish list. They want a space for their children to do their homework that is integrated into the design of the kitchen and they want to close off part of the fireplace and give its tacky white brick an update with a proper mantel. Their number one goal though is to unify the newly opened space. John and Anthony develop a plan to tackle Rich and Shane's wish list. The kitchen will have a unique layout, with a reverse island that divides the open space without obstructing the view of the rest of the home. Dark countertops will make a copper sink sing and a double door pantry and tons of prep space should satisfy the Svorec's needs. Top it off with two breakfast bars and a brand new entrance to the home and the kitchen design is complete. This is the most complex renovation the cousins have done so far. Will they be able to make all the Svorec's dreams come true?

Illusions of Grandeur

Jarred and Leah have a wonderful two-story row home in New Jersey. The home has a great classic charm with original hardwood floors, crown molding, and amazing turn of the century features throughout. The kitchen is another story - it's tiny, poorly laid out, and totally uninviting. The Cousins come up with some creative ways to make the space feel bigger and function better, including a custom window over the sink, a mirrored backsplash, and a breakfast bar that folds away against the wall.
