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.

Bringing Sexy Back

An artsy couple gets the kitchen of their dreams ? a sexy, retro styled space complete with a lounge area and area to cook. To achieve big things in this tiny space, Alison has to make the most of what she has by extending the cabinets to the ceiling, covering a window with new cabinetry, re-structuring the seating area and building out an existing pantry using pipes and wood. To add style to the space, Alison brings in dark flooring and even darker gray cabinetry that matches exactly with the paint color. To spice up the cabinetry, Alison fills the upper doors with a DIY antiqued mirror project that causes a few headaches to figure out. A 3D reclaimed wood backsplash, surprise throwback refrigerator, built-in speaker system and re-furbished custom chairs make this kitchen a place where this couple can cook breakfast, have cocktails, entertain and hang out.

Gigantic Blue Island Kitchen

Alison and the Kitchen Crashers Crew find a couple of California homeowners who have a really big kitchen. The problem is size is the only thing this space has going for it, everything else is old and dated and half of the flooring is exposed plywood. The plan involves adding even more room by removing a wall and then the new finishes start flooding in. This ambitious renovation starts with new flooring throughout both the kitchen and living room spaces and new cabinets in both light and dark. Part of the cabinet package includes a huge kitchen island, painted blue, and topped with a manufactured stone countertop and then custom built elements like a sliding barn door, pub table, and a doggy feeding hutch are added. Lots of tears and laughter fill this new kitchen when the homeowners are called in for the for the final reveal.

Worst Kitchen in America-Nebraska

Alison takes Kitchen Crashers to Nebraska to wage war on the worst kitchen in America. After the DIY viewers voted online to choose the kitchen, Alison and her gang literally move it from a small cramped corner to the other side of the house. The old kitchen space is converted to a mud room and the dining room becomes the kitchen. The transformation starts with a new mud room floor, cabinets in both rooms, a huge center island, and an amazing blue refrigerator. Alison also teaches the homeowners to create one of a kind custom touches like a coat rack using reclaimed door panels, a rolling ladder, and hand hammered distressed door faces. The end result is not only stunning, but huge and leaves the homeowners amazed.

Coeur D'Alene Cabin Crash

Alison and her crew are in Idaho to crash the Blog Cabin kitchen. With the walls already up and drywalled, Alison and Grundy can concentrate on building some big DIYs. Up first, a giant table made of black walnut with custom light-up lettering for the formal dining area. For the kitchen, they build stools out of fresh timber, channeling out sections and adding a resin and copper mix that will sparkle underneath the breakfast bar. Finishes include dual colored cabinetry with under cabinet lighting, dual colored quartz backsplash and countertops, stainless steel appliances and a custom-built chef's pantry.

Bringing Black Back

Alison is stuck within the footprint of Maria and Matt's galley kitchen, so rather than fight the space, she pumps up the creativity and changes up the layout. First, she shortens a large window and moves the sink underneath to maximize countertop and cabinet space. After the soffits are out, ceiling height light sage-colored cabinetry comes in to compliment whitewashed laminate flooring and marbled black, cream and white granite countertops. Next up, smudge-proof black appliances including a double oven, cooktop, counter-depth refrigerator and stylish hood. To keep up with the black accents, Alison installs a heavy-duty black granite sink, faucet and sleek cabinet hardware. On the DIY side, Alison and the homeowners construct a mudroom with a custom boot tray to give this family more space and a vertical succulent piece and herb garden to bring nature indoors.

Privacy Please!

Alex and Joe have a giant deck on the roof of their garage, but they've let it sit for nearly eight years because they've been too overwhelmed by the lack of privacy to build it up. Luckily, Alison has ideas and starts her design by enclosing the space with slatted pine privacy walls. To add function, she designs three separate spaces, a kitchen, dining area and lounge. In the kitchen, Alison brings in a giant grill, beverage refrigerator, cabinets, granite countertops and a sink. Alison and Alex team up to make DIY side tables that will go in the lounge area, right by the new fire pit. In the elevated dining area, Alison has seating for 8, a turf floor and plants to give the space a cozy feel.
