KITCHENS is a complete reference book for remodeling and/or building modern kitchens. The book is divided into two major parts. The first part provides information about and illustrates ideas for up-to-date kitchen design using generous amounts of color photography. This design section helps the homeowner answer basic questions about his or her needs in a kitchen. It then shows how to plan the layout, personalize the design, and pick out fixtures, appliances, cabinets, and other products.
The second half of the book explains how to implement the decisions that have been made in the first half, including all a homeowner needs to know about remodeling a kitchen or building one from scratch. The construction information, including basic plumbing and wiring techniques, how to finish walls and ceilings, how to lay flooring, and how to install cabinets, countertops, and appliances, is illustrated with step-by-step instructions. Each step in the how-to sections is illustrated with detailed drawings, many of which have been updated from the previous edition.
