Robin Kidwell, 69, a Bloomington, IL homeowner, won the $25,000 grand prize in a contest held by Figure, a home equity lender, to identify and help renovate America’s ugliest kitchen.

“I’ve got no counters, no light fixtures, the wiring’s bad, and one wall is missing,” says Robin, a retired janitor from Illinois State University. What is she looking forward to most in the renovation? “I’m almost 70 and I’ve never had a dishwasher.”

Robin and her husband live in the Dimmitt’s Grove neighborhood.  The house was built in the 1860s.

Congrats Robin!
