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 6, Episode 5

Caffeinated Kitchen

Alison has her hands full with this cramped kitchen that doesn't match the rest of the house. To start, she moves everything, taking down the wall between the dining room and kitchen, removing a small window, minimizing the large window and moving the sink to face the backyard. Once the layout is in better shape, Alison gets going on the finishes, selecting gray cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a large white farm sink. A wood accent piece is added to the peninsula to give it the feel of a furniture piece and a DIY rope shelf carries the wood finishes onto the wall. Just when this kitchen seems to have it all, Alison goes even further, taking the old pantry and turning it into a cozy coffee bar.

Skyline Rooftop Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers gang find a blank slate rooftop with a million dollar view. The transformation begins with two new raised floors, one of Ipe and the other porcelain. Then it's time for custom made cabinets, granite countertops, commercial grade appliances and a modular seating/bed. In addition, Alison teaches the homeowners to make huge planting beds, custom rugs, and hot tub steps, all to accentuate the magnificent view from this fourth floor space. The final reveal leaves the homeowners amazed beyond their dreams with this space that started with literally nothing.

Function and Flow Kitchen

Candi and Joe's kitchen is old, dark and chopped up with a peninsula taking up most of their prep and dining space. To open things up and create a functional kitchen, Alison takes out the wall between the kitchen and laundry room, shrinks windows and removes an old chimney to make space for cabinetry and moves the sink to an area that makes sense. Once layout is set, Alison brings in both natural wood and gray, painted cabinetry to give the kitchen some style and plenty of storage. All new appliances, a glass tile backsplash, quartz countertops and a wood plank floor complete the look. To add a personal DIY touch, Alison works with the homeowners on building a shadow box for storage, a cork board for organization and an herb garden to grow fresh herbs right in the kitchen!

Alison and Lisa work on a custom DIY hood made of reclaimed wood that will have all of the neighbors envious.

The Kitchen With Only A Bathroom Sink

Alison and her Kitchen Crashers crew find a couple who have renovated every room in the house except the kitchen. But this kitchen has a bathroom sink for the dishes and the refrigerator is in the basement. After removing the terrible sink and the open shelving the transformation begins. First new cabinets and counter-tops are added and a real gigantic sink. Next comes the custom tricks like a built in bench and upholstered bench top as well as stained wood wall sconces. The tears flow when the homeowners finally get to see their new space that finally is a kitchen, and it is amazing.

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.

Stormy Outdoor Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew reimagine a drab backyard to create a multi-level entertaining space. The fun starts with repurposing an existing deck and creating a huge upper level. Then they add an entire kitchen complete with outdoor cabinets, concrete countertops, pergola, and appliances. The lower level gets a seating area and beautiful planters all around. Alison also helps the homeowners create custom elements like concrete planters, a simple concrete bench, and dark stained bar stools.
