A Copper Lover's Dream Kitchen

Brendan and Katie's kitchen is way too small to fit their needs, not to mention, Brendan's 6 foot, 5 inch frame barely fits into the space! Alison tackles their space planning dilemma by taking out a main wall between the kitchen and dining area and closing off the original doorway to create a wood framed pass through. Once the space is laid out properly, she brings in ceiling height light veneer cabinetry, large marble subway tile backsplash set behind open shelving, and gray quartz countertops to build the foundation of the kitchen. A wine bar, complete with chalkboard inset cabinet doors, is installed so that Katie can store and label her wine. To fit their stainless steel appliance dreams, Alison gives the homeowners a giant refrigerator, wine fridge, pull out microwave drawer, range and hood. Alison and the homeowners add a personal touch to the build with a copper DIY pot rack and cart to match the copper accents throughout the kitchen. A custom DIY dining bench table and copper bendable chairs give this couple the proper space to dine and entertain.

Bon Appetit

Jares and Steve love to cook and entertain and are stuck with a nightmare of a kitchen, until Alison arrives with plans to upgrade to a Parisian inspired space. To make room for the big plans, the team takes out Steve's closet and throws away everything in the kitchen, resulting in a very dusty demo. Dirty old flooring is covered with new, white washed oak planks with flecks of gray. A foam t-grid ceiling is replaced with DIY spray painted and antiqued tin tiles. Alison triples the couple's storage space, bringing in floor to ceiling cabinetry with a veneer finish and blended vertical grain. To satisfy Jared's love for baking, Alison and Gary design a baking station with plenty of room for storage and rolling out dough. Steve's desire to entertain is met with a gold bar cart that Alison and Steve cut and weld together. The space is finished off with a glass chandelier and all new high-end appliances perfect for cooking gourmet meals. Bon Appetit!

Kitschy Kitchen

Alison has her hands full with Jeff and Becky's 70's style kitchen that's layout is causing major rifts between the couple. To start, Alison removes the peninsula and flips the layout, putting the refrigerator and built-in oven where the peninsula once was. Next, she shortens the soffits to allow for more space for the solid alder wood cabinetry. Below the window, an under utilized space in the room, Alison designs a desk for homework or just hanging out. Blue fog colored concrete countertops, light yellow marmoleum flooring and two types of backsplash bringing in gray and blue tones give the kitchen a kitschy look. For a clean, crisp effect, Alison wires outlets into the bottom of the cabinets and completes the look with a solid glass backsplash, void of any outlet holes. Because the homeowners love lighting, DIY track light covers and a one-of-a-kind lamp finish off the space.
