At the heart of any home is the kitchen, and this has never been so true as it is today. In response to uncertain economic times and global unrest, consumers are investing in their homes like never before, and kitchen remodeling is at the center of this unprecedented DIY activity.

While a new kitchen clearly adds equity value to a home, the benefits to quality of life are almost beyond measure. A well-planned, well-installed kitchen becomes the focal point of family life and social activity, the home's center of physical and emotional well-being. The Complete Guide to Kitchens is the one book you absolutely need to plan and remodeling a kitchen, whether this entails a light cosmetic facelift or major structural renovation. No other book presents this important subject in such full detail.

This book includes a comprehensive idea section to provide inspiration, and an extended planning and design section to show do-it-yourselfers the latest theories of kitchen layout. Next, there is an ingenious chapter featuring quick fixes-solutions that can radically improve a kitchen without the major expense of a full-scale remodeling job.

The heart of the book, as in the entire series of best-selling Complete Guides, is detailed step-by-step how-to information on virtually any project you might attempt. In addition, the book includes detailed information on making a kitchen accessible to users with limited physical abilities.

As a second-generation painting contractor, Luts brings a personal touch to the telling of what makes a good paint job. In addition to discussing proper preparation, he emphasizes types of paints and their selection; the correct use of brushes and other paraphernalia; estimates of cost and coverage; common painting errors; and so on. He also devotes chapters to wall coverings and floor refinishing. This is not, however, a definitive guide; Luts offers little or nothing, for example, on design and color selection or on the use of spray guns and chemical strippers. His brief discussion of heat as a paint-removal method refers to the use of a propane torch and fails even to mention the far safer yet equally effective electric heat gun. This ultimately offers no more painting know-how than a typical general how-to manual. Libraries should judge their need accordingly
