Cooking up a Storm: Reality of Family Life During Lockdown


Those who have a family know that during lockdown you can be cooking up a storm in the kitchen and making a huge mess as well!

Wren Kitchens recently asked social users to share with them images of their kitchens before and during lockdown. The images that were shared show the perception vs reality of households during home-schooling and home working.

Ahhh lockdown life, a time when a dog sitting on your lap during a work meeting or a child interrupting a conference call is the new normal. A time of DIY haircuts, home-schooling, home-working and many (often frustrating) weeks of trying to keep the children entertained.

Life as we know it has been turned up-side-down, however, it would appear that our homes and kitchens have also been turned up-side-down according to some new real-life snapshots of family life.

The results perfectly sum up what has been the reality of many homes during these times! From general mess to home working set-ups, check out the photos of modern family life below:



The cleaning never stops at home, one minute the kitchen is clean, the next it’s like a hurricane has hit! Having a mess in your kitchen doesn’t make you any less of an amazing parent, it makes you normal!
