    A Necessary Asset

    This work is by far the most comprehensive I've seen in 30 years in this industry. As a builder and designer it is often difficult, working with clients, to conceptualize ideas and desires without long hours spent on drawings and meetings. This book presents nearly every possibility in one volume making the process comfortable and informed for all involved. It is a valuable tool, speaking respectfully to both the professional and homeowner. I must also humbly admit as an experienced old "know-it-all" to repeated amazement at wonderful new ideas and applications. It inspires the imagination. Thank you Ms. Edwards for sharing a lifetime of good work.

    Amazing book with a great insight

    This is a great guide to get you on your way to designing and creating your dream kitchen. Another great option of creating a beautiful kitchen is by actually buying the modular cabinets at a distributor and installing them yourself. It will provide you an easier way to achieve a more finished product.

    A Great Book of Ideas and Style!

    An outstanding book for anyone who has considered replacing those kitchens stuck in the 60's! Connie has a wonderful sense of style along with a creative flare for dealing with situations that were previously dubbed "custom only." The book is visually exciting and full of great information. A great source!

    Finally,A Book Everyone Can Use...........

    Finally a book everyone can use to plan and lay out a new room design. The options open the reader's mind to possibilities they may not have been considered. I even got ideas for reorganizing existing rooms. Thanks to Ms. Edwards for a job well done. I'll keep the book handy.
