Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Want a fantastic kitchen, but don't have big bucks to spend? Cory (Deck Designs) and newbie Slavik present some reasonable options. The focus here is on specific budget-friendly projects that can be done by confident homeowners that look good and function well. The book combines galleries of upgrade options with clear step-by-step instructions, and the illustrations shine. There are many useful tips, from how to deal with contractors to managing quick fixes. The storage ideas are worth the cost of the book alone. VERDICT This book does not cover a complete gutting and renovation of a kitchen; it's just bite-size projects. The selection is great, however, and this is a good companion to Do It Yourself Kitchens: Stunning Spaces on a Shoestring Budget (Wiley, 2011). Highly recommended for all readers interested in home improvement.
