Comments: Kitchen Makeover Ideas If you dream of remodeling your kitchen, don't start until you look at lots and lots of idea books and magazines. There is so much to consider (layout, storage, colors, and more) and this is an expensive project. Many of the examples in this book are the latest in dream kitchens and that will get you thinking. If the budget won't stretch to something as fancy as these, there are other books that might help scale down the concepts, but at least you know what the possibilities are.
