Meet the Host

Alison Victoria

Interior designer Alison Victoria began designing at the ripe age of 10 when she asked her mom if she could tackle the basement in their new house.

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 4, Episode 4

Dream Come True Kitchen

When he sees Alison in the home improvement store, Tom knows what to do chase her! A big fan of the show, Tom talks Alison into taking him home and surprising his wife and next thing he knows, he's appearing on his favorite TV show. Alison gets to work transforming Tom and Nicole's builder's standard kitchen by gutting the room and re-thinking the space planning. She adds an island with a sleek granite top and extends decorative cabinets and gray quartz countertops the entire length of the kitchen, providing endless space for cooking and entertaining. Where there was once an empty space, Alison designs a custom bench clad in wood flooring planks and zinc-covered table to provide seating for the entire family. The dark brown wide-plank wood floor extends up one wall creating an accent wall that looks like a piece of art and a metallic, blue-gray backsplash gives the kitchen some color and style.

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.
