    Not for New Yorkers!

    Unless you're working with a Trump-like budget! I have a small, typical kitchen and was distressed to see page after page of kitchens the size of my 15' x 22' living room. The Manhattan kitchens they did show often required knocking down walls, combining rooms, and in some cases, combining two apartments. Skip this if you truly have a small kitchen.

    For all kitchen would-be designers

    Small can be efficient and practical yet quite charming as we see in Ashley Rooney's Spectacular Small Kitchens: Design Ideas for Urban Spaces. Almost 40 designers address in eye-catching color images the functionality and aesthetic considerations of a small kitchen. They balance the desires of the interior architecture and the client's desires and come up with myriad design solutions: from the Feng Shui Kitchen to the integrated kitchen to the long thin kitchen. The book includes an intriguing narrative by Susan Aiello, ASID, CID, about the exciting opportunities and demanding challenges involved in designing small kitchens in large cities. I was lucky and got to see this book before it is out. With so many wonderful and colorful ideas, it is one that anyone ought to have before starting a kitchen renovation.
