To celebrate tomorrow's premiere of the second season of "Fix this Kitchen" on A&E, Apartment Therapy and IKEA®, the Life Improvement store, are teaming up so YOU can get in on the kitchen fixing fun!
Send us your big kitchen design questions, along with some photos of your design-challenged kitchen, and we’ll be back in a few weeks to share a handful of our favorite submissions – complete with exclusive, customized design feedback from the "Fix This Kitchen" cast and the IKEA kitchen design team! And that’s not all - the first 10 completed entries will receive $50 IKEA gift cards.
All submissions are due by next Friday, Sept. 16th, so start snapping pics of your kitchen and gather your most pressing design questions - the more thoughtful and detailed the better! While you wait for our big reveal, make sure to tune-in for the next installment of kitchen design fun, airing Saturdays this fall at 9:30am (8:30am CT) on A&E.
"Fix This Kitchen" to the rescue - again! This season we’ll meet celebrity chef Eric Greenspan, who will team up each week with show host/accomplished designer Nicole Facciuto and a conspiring family member to surprise a frustrated household cook with a complete IKEA kitchen makeover. The homeowner arrives home while the demolition is in progress and learns that they are getting a new kitchen. By the end of the episode, they're cooking a celebratory meal in their new kitchen with Eric and Nicole. It's fun, quirky, and each kitchen is fully designed by IKEA. For even more info on the show and air times, check out the show’s site here.
About The Design Team
The dynamic co-hosts of "Fix This Kitchen" are ready for their next kitchen design challenges!
Host Nicole Facciuto has been helping viewers and homeowners create family-friendly and eco-safe homes as the Host of HGTV's "Red Hot and Green." While growing up on a walnut farm, Nicole gained an early appreciation of nature, which continues to guide her design sensibility today. Nicole owns her own design firm and has been featured across many major television networks and publications ranging from HGTV, Food Newtork, A&E, WE, Oxygen, Bravo, CBS, Domino, Traditional Home and The New York Times.
Co-host Eric Greenspan is no stranger to the kitchen. Greenspan made his way into our homes and shared his love for food on Food Network's "The Next Iron Chef Season 2" and "Iron Chef America Challenge." As Executive Chef and owner of The Foundry on Melrose, Greenspan has skyrocketed to success and has been named runner-up for Los Angeles Magazine's "Best New Restaurant."
