Trading Spaces

Like a number of people here, I'm a Trading Spaces fan. So.

I recently watched and read the recap of this episode, wherein one of the designers covers the walls of a kitchen with wine labels, and nearly puts in a wine rack. This is bad because the homeowners are religious Protestant pastors who do *not* drink and do not approve of alcohol. The designer could not get it through her head that there are people in this world like that. It took intervention to prevent the wine rack, because their neighbors were just too passive about objecting.

So. I had to wonder. What would happen if, by some chance, they did a kosher kitchen on Trading Spaces. Many kosher kitchens have two ovens and two sinks, and maybe even two cooktops and two fridges, and the storage space to keep the meat and dairy stuff separate. My own only has one range and one sink, but I do have ample storage, which is good. Strict houses have dairy vs. meat counters as well.

But we'll assume a kitchen large enough to film in, which would have appropriate doubling.

Gen does pretty and functional kitchens. She might add additional work space, and she might do things with the cabinet doors.

Doug would get all egoy, but the kitchen would be usable.

Laurie would do stuff with colors.

I have no idea what Edward would do because I don't think we've seen him do a kitchen, but I'd bet pretty and functional.

The very idea of Kia terrifies me.

Frank ask about kosher kitchens and would paint trompe l'oil meat on one side and cheese on the other. He will also give the homeowners artsycraftsy mezuzot.

Vern. Vern would do research on what it means to have a kosher kitchen. He will then come in with subtle and elegant but easily decipherable color coding, and create space for Passover storage.

Hildi. Would completly not care what this "kosher" thing means, and smear pork fat on all available surfaces. And put up Christmas trees as art.
