My ROOM...

About Me I’m Carolyn Clay­ton, 44, and I live with my son Leon, 17, in a three-bed­room, 1950s semi in Oak­en­gates, Shrop­shire. It’s an ex-coun­cil house that I rented in fe­bru­ary 2004, and bought in 2007. My chal­lenge The kitchen was orig­i­nally two small, sep­a­rate rooms, for cook­ing and eat­ing. The din­ing room had poor light and the dated kitchen was badly de­signed – it had barely any work­sur­faces, just two cup­boards, one of which was un­us­able be­cause it was blocked by the cooker. I hated cook­ing in there be­cause of the lack of work space and lim­ited stor­age. My wish list I wanted a prac­ti­cal kitchen-diner with wow fac­tor – stylish, mod­ern and stream­lined but well-de­signed, with plenty of stor­age and workspace, and a break­fast bar di­vid­ing the cook­ing and din­ing ar­eas.
