When a person renovates a kitchen it must reflect their taste, lifestyle, budeget and dreams. This book is richly illustrated with 230 full-colour photographs of beautiful kitchens by top designers and architects. It seeks to inspire and enable readers to make the best possible design choices. The book is in two parts and the first, DESIGN ESSENTIALS, prepares the reader to handle the many design choices adeptly. The first chapter stresses the importance of sustaining your vision and the following six chapters deal with the different aspects of assembling the design. The second part is called THE plans, style and personal touches. Armed with the knowledge provided in part one the reader will learn how to confront the critical design choices that will turn their kitchen dream into reality.
