    Great Resource!!

    This book is a great reference tool for individuals who are in the Kitchen and Bathroom Design profession. It is also great for students or anyone who is simply interested in kitchen and bath designs...it provides alot of information on national standards and guidelines for kitchen and baths. Very light-weight book, great illustrations and simple wording.
