Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ranked by budget, from $1000 up to $10,000, sample kitchen makeovers showcased here illustrate a range of possibilities. With spending breakdowns, stunning before-and-after shots, and lots of tips that make big differences, this book has wide appeal. For each makeover there are detailed instructions for selected projects, such as installing fixtures, resurfacing, and tiling. This is not in-depth how-to, but ideas and inspiration. Each sample kitchen is brimming with creativity and innovation. It's time to update your kitchen renovation section with this book. Highly recommended.
