“A lot of comedy takes place in the kitchen,” says Kasch. “We’ve had the toaster light on fire because Luke was trying to re-rig it, or pancakes getting stuck on the ceiling, or Luke falling out of his stool. There is so much action with the family in there, and that’s where the comedy mostly comes from on this show — real-life stories from Chris Lloyd and Steven Levitan.” Making the space look lived-in is a never-ending challenge for the designers. “We’re constantly changing out food items around the counter, or shuffling [things] around…. Episode to episode, there are very subtle changes,” says Bennett. Adds Kasch: “A dish breaks, you bring in new stuff, as in anyone’s house.”
