Overview

The kitchen may be the most challenging renovation project in the house, but it's also the most rewarding. For most families, life revolves around this room, whether they're sitting down to lunch, cooking a grand meal, or simply hanging out. A well-designed kitchen—that looks good and works well—gives a home a center and its owners tremendous satisfaction.The Kitchen shows you exactly how to achieve this happy end. The first in a new series of practical guides that offer the best and latest solutions to interior design problems, The Kitchen contains three sections: Case Studies, Nuts and Bolts, and the Personal Touch. Twenty-one illuminating real-life examples show how people have tackled their kitchen makeovers. Detailed photographs illustrate how these kitchens were developed and decorated, while the author describes how the owner's desires were translated into reality. Nuts and Bolts features in-depth information on every kitchen component, from cabinets and stoves to the sink. The Personal Touch reveals how to put your own stamp on your kitchen, whether through hi-tech cookware or antique creamware jugs.

Author Bio: Vinny Lee is a writer and stylist specializing in interiors, and the interiors editor of the Times of London Sunday magazine. Her previous books on design include Zen Interiors (STC) and Mood Indigo. She lives in Brussels and London. Andrew Wood specializes in photographing interiors and fashion.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Lee (Zen Interiors; Kitchens; Bathrooms; etc.) returns once more to the kitchen in her latest offering. Divided into three parts, the first deals with 21 detailed case studies, showing by example, detailed well-captioned pictures, lucid text and architects floor plans the development of, and final arrival at, a variety of kitchens. These plans take into account the space available and the owner's aims and lifestyles, and are useful in helping readers decide the direction they want to take in their own renovation. The second part contains the most practical advice as Lee wends her way through the "Nuts and Bolts" of the components that make up the finished room. From flooring to cabinets, the options available are described, as are their merits and demerits. The final part, "The Personal Touch," discusses the extras- gadgets and utensils as well as decorative details that garnish the kitchen walls, window treatments and table linens. All these provide the finishing touches and are often overlooked at the concept stage. The book is rounded out by a small but useful suppliers section. Lee's combination of text and glossy well-captioned pictures, nicely photographed by Wood, is sure to inspire those considering the renovation of what is usually the most expensive room to undertake.
