Cabin Kitchens & Baths Total Hits - 2876  |  Hits Today - 0 Rating:   Rating Average (13)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
A cabin isn't just a home in the woods, it's an architecturally and aesthetically unique structure that deserves special attention with regard to decoration and organization of rooms and living space. Cabin Kitchens and Baths is the first book to look specifically at the challenges that can come with decorating or remodeling bathrooms and kitchens in log homes and cabins-small spaces, unusually shaped rooms, lighting issues, and more. Cabin Kitchens and Baths offers tips from professionals in the log home building industry on cabinetry, appliances, architectural details, color, and floor plans that will help make a dream kitchen or bathroom a reality. From floor to ceiling, these rooms are the most complex in a home, and are even more so in a cabin or old log home. Franklin and Esther Schmidt focus on the architectural elements, furnishings, appliances, design and decor, and include inspiring kitchen floor plans and expert sidebars as well as beautiful photography. This book is a must-have for anyone considering a remodel or redecorating project on a cabin or log home. Esther and Franklin Schmidt are a photography, styling, and writing team who have photographed and written about hundreds of log and timber frame cabins. They have traveled to nearly every state, producing articles and photo features for all the major log and timber frame magazines. Their work is featured in a variety of books on cabin living as well as such national magazines as Architectural Digest, Old House Interiors, Antiques & Fine Art, Country Home, and Country Living. As field editors for Victorian Homes, Washington, D.C. correspondents for Art & Antiques, and antiques columnists for Country Accents, they have focused their work on interior design as it relates to architecture and lifestyle.
