Tracey is a proud mother and grandma but her kitchen looks like something her own grandma might have cooked in! Her outdated space is dark and dingy with horribly outdated colours and brick “wallpaper”. The layout is cramped and small which makes hosting family dinners for her growing family very difficult.
We asked Tracey:
How does the kitchen affect your life and your family life?
We love to have our family over and we host family meals often but with 10 family members and another grandchild on the way, finding space to prepare and enjoy a meal together is difficult. I often end up in the kitchen preparing the meal while the rest of the family visits in the living room or dining room without me.
What would your dream kitchen look like?
My dream kitchen would be a larger space that opened into the dining room so that everyone could be together. It would have an island, new flooring and better lighting so that it is safer and more functional
How would a new kitchen affect your life and your family life?
A new kitchen would bring us closer as a family and it would allow me to be part of the fun, not just the cook. I especially want to be able to teach my grandchildren to cook but my current kitchen doesn’t have the space.
