There is no Next Episode of America's Most Desperate Kitchens planned.
A horribly worn kitchen with dated avocado-colored appliances and low-hanging cabinets is blown open to join the living and dining rooms, creating one huge modern living space! Perfect for entertaining while making treats for guests, the butcher block island and colorful baking station provide tons of room for prep, along with creative storage everywhere for ingredients and utensils.
Anthony and John surprise Austin homeowners Josh and Jessica with a plan to remodel their 1940's cramped, drab, dark & dysfunctional kitchen. Hardly updated since it was built, the kitchen is not functional, has no flow and has very little storage for this busy family of 5. The cousins improve flow by removing French doors into a covered porch and adding a wall of cabinets topped with leathered granite, as well as a kitchen island, plenty of prep space and updated stainless steel appliances. The adjoining dining room gains French doors out to the back yard, a pub-height table set upon cabinets, a kids work area, industrial lighting and a wall of storage.
John and Anthony surprise a young couple with a hip pub style kitchen complete with a professional tap system, giant island with reclaimed wood front, all new cabinets, countertops and appliances, plus a unique tile inlay in an all new wood floor. Plus, a ceiling tin treatment and a face-lift for an old fireplace make this one beautiful room to entertain!
John and Anthony knock on some lucky homeowners door and surprise them with a brand new custom kitchen. While homeowners Melissa and Oliver are sent away, their outdated kitchen is completely transformed into one entertainer's dream kitchen. What was once three separate rooms become one open and bright space including a one of a kind brass hood, a sleek quartz island faced with concrete tiles and a walnut waterfall edge cutting board, all new appliances and cabinets, plus a series of custom tables that unify as one or can be used individually.
An outdated cramped kitchen with blue tile countertops, no storage and old linoleum flooring is blown open into a stunning kitchen fit for entertaining! This Hollywood Regency inspired kitchen is complete with all new appliances and quartz countertops, a live edge tasting bar at a new peninsula, wine barrel dining table and gold accents throughout. Plus, a handmade fireclay backsplash is installed with a gold grout and dark porcelain tile goes on the floor for a high-end look. The entire space is finished off with a nature inspired modern wallpaper and custom walnut accents.
Starting with a broken and dysfunctional afterthought of a kitchen, the cousins blow out not only the walls but the ceiling too, creating a cavernous living area without changing the overall footprint of the house. Open and friendly, and with fun storage in a hand-aged island, the homeowners get room to cook together while making friends feel welcome.
A cramped kitchen becomes a bright, loft-like space with new cabinets and new counters, and tons of storage.
John and Anthony transform a tiny kitchen by removing walls.
