The book opens with an introductory planning and design chapter, then moves into detailed chapters that discuss the crucial elements that make up a good kitchen: style, layout, lighting, storage, work space, dining space, appliances, and decorating. Written specifically with the do-it-yourselfer in mind, the book is arranged so each beautiful kitchen photo is a miniature case study. Includes all the background information needed to plan a DIY approach to recreating each idea.
In addition to these inspirational photos and the practical case study text, the book is filled with side bars, charts, and DIY tips that make this book truly useful. The book also includes helpful consumer guide sidebars showing you the vast range of materials and construction options available to the DIYer.
