Comments: Don't pay for what you can have for free..... This is the biggest rip off book of all time. Basically a collection of Kraftmaid and other cabinet manufacturers brochures put together into a book. These are the materials that you can get for free at any home remodel center or from the manufacturers directly when you are planning a remodel. As most of those brochures tend to be, the book is uninspiring and completely unoriginal. All the layouts are too "staged" and don't look real probably because most of them are showroom designs with zero real life feel.Pompous designs without real charm ,in other words. Worse I purchased it becaused it mentioned bathrooms, my area of interst at the moment - turns out the book only has 15 out of 110 pages covering bathrooms.
