|As indoor kitchen design books do, The New Outdoor Kitchen covers initial design and planning and, in subsequent chapters, covers "stove" options (grills, smokers, wood-fired ovens); the rest of the kitchen (outdoor refrigerators, sinks, cabinets, and countertops); the entertaining and eating areas (including a discussion of outdoor heaters, social fire-fireplaces, firepits, and chimineas--and bug control to increase your season of enjoyment); and, finally, the grace notes of the outdoor kitchen--lighting and sound systems, plantings, and water features. Ten portfolio kitchens will be laced between the chapters, and the book will conclude with an extensive source list. The kitchens pictured in the book will run the size, price, ambition, and creativity gamut, from kitchens sited on decks and patios to a small urban backyard set up to elaborate built-in, freestanding outdoor environments. |

|Filled with more than 500 inspiring photos, the Kitchen & Bath Idea Book is the ultimate source of design ideas for creating the kitchen and bathroom of your dreams. Today’s leading designers and architects offer inspiration for everything from cabinets and countertops to faucets and fixtures, lighting and flooring, and storage and built-ins.
The kitchen is the true heart of the home, and homeowners spend a lot of time and money to make older kitchens less utilitarian and more creative, a place where people can congregate as well as cook and enjoy good food. This book helps you figure out what you really want and how to get it, whether it’s a contemporary, brushed-stainless workroom worthy of an upscale restaurant; a rustic, farmhouse-style great room with wood flooring and a couch; or an elegant, streamlined space for a small city apartment. For every style, for every budget, it's all here: new appliance technology and cabinetry, fixtures and faucets, doors and counter materials, sinks, pulls, built-ins, and bookcases. Using this idea book, you can create the kitchen of your dreams - regardless of style or budget.
The bathroom today is getting more attention than ever for its value as a personal retreat and resale enhancer. Gone are the days of garish tile and fuzzy toilet seat covers. Now bathrooms are as much about taste and style as the rest of the house. Homeowners want bathrooms to be both beautiful and functional, and manufacturers have responded with many more choices in materials and fixtures. This book covers them all, with ideas for tiny half-baths, medium-size his-and-hers, and large luxurious home spas. Specifics on ventilation, waterproofing, faucets, showers, tubs, and more give you the knowledge to create a bathroom with all your favorite features.
Two books in one, Kitchen and Bathroom Idea Book gives homeowners hundreds of ideas on how to make the hardest-working rooms in the house the most beautiful.
