House Beautiful Kitchens

Overview

The kitchen has always been the center of the home, both literally and figuratively -- the place where we cook, dine, catch up with our family, even congregate when company comes over. Making sure it is the warm, welcoming, practical room of our dreams is not as difficult as it might sound. The editors of House Beautiful have assembled a world of affordable, achievable, ideas for tailoring this room to every design need and decorating style.

Overview

The kitchen has always been the center of the home, both literally and figuratively -- the place where we cook, dine, catch up with our family, even congregate when company comes over. Making sure it is the warm, welcoming, practical room of our dreams is not as difficult as it might sound. The editors of House Beautiful have assembled a world of affordable, achievable, ideas for tailoring this room to every design need and decorating style.

Profiles of kitchens throughout the country give us a chance to visit with the designers, architects, and homeowners who tackled a host of design problems on a wide range of budgets. More than 140 beautiful color photographs and floor plans bring every detail to light.

House Beautiful Kitchens begins with a look at three of the most popular kitchen styles: sleek contemporary: country, old and new; and specialty kitchens, customized to unique needs and specific demands. Next come the elements of good kitchen design: basic decisions about layout, appliances, storage, and lighting, as well as the decorative questions of surfaces, finishes, and the all important accents and touches.

From tiny city apartment galley to expansive California family room, House Beautiful Kitchens explores countless ways to put kitchen beauty, comfort, and efficiency within every homeowner's reach.

Read an Excerpt

Wall-to-wall storage
Wall-hung cabinets, whether standard-issue or custom-built, have the advantage of providing great volumes of storage area without intruding on the room's basic floor plan. Those that are ceiling height provide maximum storage space and are especially effective in apartment kitchens. The overhead space created by cabinetry that doesn't reach the ceiling can be used to store or display large serving pieces, baskets, and the like. Cabinets fronted with glass doors are ideal for the cook who likes to see everything at a glance or show off colorful china and dishware. Solid doors or glass doors backed with panels of fabric might be the better choice for cooks who prefer to keep their "pantry" out of sight.

Decorative Touches

Kitchen decor can be formal or casual, ultra-modern or old-fashioned, clean or cluttered, depending on taste. Color is far and away the most direct way to transform a room quickly; wallpaper, fabric, and even scatter rugs are excellent ways to introduce it in a kitchen. Furnishings, whether an antique pine dry sink or an upholstered slipper chair, add warmth and serve a purpose, too. Finally, the cook's favorite things -- collections of baskets, books, bottles, or bibelots -- help to stamp the kitchen with a decorating signature all its own.
