We are on the hunt for Brisbane’s worst Kitchen!
Who is the most deserving of the title as ‘Brisbane’s Worst Kitchen’!
Introducing – Candice of Everton Park
Candice is the proud owner of this cute little townhouse in Everton Park. A first home buyer and relatively new to the area she has big plans for the humble space that encapsulates vintage charm.
Although a fan of all things second hand.. Candice finds herself wondering if ‘vintage’ is a word that should belong in a sentence when describing ones kitchen. It would seem that when you are too scared to leave your toaster plugged in for fear of starting an electrical fire.. it might be time to update.
Since buying the property in August of 2011 Candice has already replaced the floors and carpets and is excited to be adding her own touches to the house. Unfortunately though.. it was due to some very ill placed hot water piping – that runs along the skirting through most of the kitchen and living space – the timber floors she dreamed of were unable to be fitted. Instead a vinyl flooring had to be chosen, much to her disappointment.
Highlights of this space include.. but are certainly not limited to; -Unusable cabinets, some don’t open at all due to sagging bench tops, some open but don’t close properly. -Draws that were shortened to make room for aforementioned hot water pipes and now fall out of their runners when opened -Energy guzzling fridge that also doesn’t run well due to the heat of the stove right next to it. – The unusual placement of appliances -Chipboard cupboards flaking and falling apart -Very little and very narrow bench space -Overall lack of functional space -No range hood -Ugly pipes intruding on the kitchen -Wallpaper that is in disrepair -Two power points for the entire kitchen -The fridge that has seen better days.. and although it does it’s best, often doesn’t actually keep the food very cold.
