Meet the Host

Alison Victoria

Interior designer Alison Victoria is known for creating glamorous, modern interiors with a client list that includes high-end boutiques, resorts and private residences.

About the show

Weekend warriors across the country get more than they bargained for when they run into designer Alison Victoria and her Kitchen Crashers at the home improvement store. Homeowners hand over the keys, and what started as a simple shopping trip turns into the coolest kitchen on the block, when Alison and her crew make a total transformation from so-so to showstopper.
Season 5, Episode 7

Thinking Outside the Box

Tom and Katey's kitchen has too many straight lines and not enough color. From the cold, white ceramic floor tiles to the dated brown cabinets to the fake beams on the ceiling, nothing flows. An oddly placed peninsula interrupts movement. Their cooktop is failing and their oven is worse. Alison's transformation starts by knocking down a wall separating the kitchen from the dining room. A custom island adds work space and casual seating. White shaker cabinets brighten a dark corner. The focal point of the room is an upscale ocean-blue glass backsplash behind the range hood in oval mosaic pattern. Linear blue glass continues behind the sink, arranged in a simple brick pattern. A formerly unused wall is treated with shallow blue cabinets below a storage unit created from apple crates stained and installed by Tom and Alison. Marble countertops continue the natural, organic feeling. Katey helps Alison create a cornice board covered with cheery floral fabric in blue, green and brown hues.

Modern Kitchen for New Family

Alison creates a modern space for a whole family. Ace and Raul's kitchen cabinets are the same quality as office furniture and the granite always looks dirty. Alison replaces those cabinets with stainless steel, glass, and high gloss white cabinets complete with grey countertops and a huge island in ice white. This kitchen is complete with a custom built wine rack with remote backlighting, a bar cart built from industrial pipes, and one of a kind cork coasters.

Decked Out Kitchen

Jess and Tom try to make the most of city living by using their deck off the kitchen as a dining area, but their setup isn't working for them until Alison gets her hands on it. After tossing their main appliances off the deck, Alison and the crew carefully take down the wall of cabinetry and re-use the cabinet faces for DIY planter boxes. So that they don't make the same mistake twice, Alison replaces the cabinetry with two-toned cabinets and an open shelving area to break up the giant wall. To help Tom and Jess up their fun factor, Alison installs a bar with under cabinet beverage center and works with Tom on a DIY table that has a cooler right in the middle. Beachy wall tiles, a mix of butcher block and stone countertops, a swinging chair and a faux green wall finish off the space and give it an urban beachy feel.

Modern Kitchen Makeover

Alison has a big project on her hands as she flips an ancient kitchen into a modern masterpiece. To start, she re-vamps the floor plan, eliminating a window, opening up the doorway to a small nook and doubling the size of the main entrance to include a sliding glass door. Once the layout is in place, Alison brings in all things modern to give the space a clean, linear look. High gloss neon green cabinetry add pop to the room while wavy ceramic backsplash tiles and white quartz countertops give the room a neutral and stylish feel. For DIY projects, Alison and Trey work on a pull-out pantry that fits right into an old closet space and Alison and Maria tackle a tree-themed bar area and custom wood wall.

Shipping Container Kitchen

Michael wants an outdoor kitchen that screams party so Alison delivers! She drops a shipping container into the yard and transforms it into a sleek outdoor kitchen complete with awnings, a bar, cabinets, shelving, lighting and a kegorator. She adds a deck with smoker and prep area, two picnic tables and a custom concrete ping pong table. The result is a usable back yard with lots of entertaining space and the most unique outdoor kitchen around!

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.

Splashy Blue Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew tackle a small kitchen that is completely separated from the main room by a countertop. Starting with new flooring and cabinets this space gets transformed into a sleek, stylish kitchen with accents more commonly seen in big city lofts. Beautiful white countertops are added before the custom pieces are added in like a butcher block counter with a waterfall edge, art storage cabinet with sliding blue door, and a quick and easy charging station to fit above the electrical outlets. When this crash is done both homeowners feel as if they are living in someone else's house.

Modern Meets Rustic Kitchen

Ari and Lara's kitchen is cramped and the layout is all wrong, until Alison Victoria comes in and revamps the entire space, partially knocking down the wall into the dining room and accenting the room with an arch and DIY distressed corbels. Alison brings in a reclaimed wood floor to give the room a rustic feel and grey washed cabinetry with detailed doors and crystal hardware for a modern feel. Where there was once a wall, there is now a custom reclaimed wood peninsula and alcove with a DIY picture frame and chalkboard. A faux brick paneled wall, quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances finish off the space.

Sleek Super Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers gang remove some walls and build others to form a gigantic kitchen space. After demo, what was once the most hated room in the house doubles in size to become one of the largest kitchens of the show. The transformation begins with new floors, cabinets, and countertops. Then custom items are built like a rolling bar cart, note panels in the cabinet doors, and a light fixture that gets a facelift with a "crate shade." There are both tears of joy and laughter when these homeowners finally get to see this enormous space.
