Renovating Grandma’s Kitchen

My sister is going through a bit of a tough time at the moment. She recently broke up with her boyfriend and is looking for a place to live. On top of this, she’s also started a new job and adopted a dog. There’s a lot of change going on in her life and she’s expressed that it’s all making her feel overwhelmed. My parents have suggested that she move in with them, or she can also move into our grandmother’s home. Our grandmother moved into a care home two months ago, so her place has been vacant this whole time. At least with her moving into this home it will be a free place to live while she resettles herself following all the recent changes in her life. 

I’ve never been particularly close with my grandmother. Let’s just say that we struggled to form a bond. This strained, non-existent relationship, is why I haven’t visited her house in years. My dad gave my sister and me the key to our grandmother’s home, as he suggested it might need some cleaning before my sister moves in. We had no idea that a little cleaning would turn into needing to book an entire kitchen replacement. Stepping into her kitchen was like stepping into a time machine. Everything was extremely dated and in poor condition. I know people like vintage and all, but there is such a thing as too vintage. Her oven honestly looked like something out of a museum. I also hate to say this about her, but the sink looked like it had been left to rot. This was not a hospitable home for my sister. You would need to get the best kitchen design specialist Melbourne has ever seen to be able to transform this mess because my sister and I had no idea where to start. We thought about removing some furniture and giving the kitchen a massive spring clean, but there was no way that would be enough.
