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.
Alison takes on this choppy and dated kitchen with a brand new layout. By removing a window and making a second window shorter, she's able to move the sink, flip the fridge location and create a focal wall with a range and hood that makes all the difference. Once the layout is locked down, navy and white cabinetry give the space a new shape and a butcher block island top, muted metallic backsplash and stainless steel appliances give it style.
Alison and the Kitchen Crashers crew find a crazy couple and literally change every inch of their Chicago Kitchen. While the wild antics, including karate moves ensue, the renovation starts. After a complete demo including the outside windows, the new stuff starts flying in, including a picture window, new floors, cabinets, countertops, colorful orange island and lighting. Alison and the homeowners set their sights on the custom touches like barstools, dimensional shelves and a map wall treatment. The homeowners are overwhelmed at the transformation.
When Alison finds Toni and Jason in the hardware store they're in desperate need of a kitchen that not only functions, but fits Jason! Alison takes on the challenge and changes up the layout, breaking into a guest bedroom closet to make space for a built-in pantry and closing up a window to add wall space for cabinetry. Decades old patterned flooring is replaced with a floating wood floor, an island with a concrete top adds prep space and can lighting replaces Jason holding a flashlight for Toni while she cooks. A DIY hutch gives additional space and style while crayon-themed artwork adds some color and fun. And the biggest surprise of them all, Jason pops the question right before the big reveal!
