Creating a dream kitchen is a major challenge—too big to manage alone, and too expensive to leave entirely to a professional. Room by Room delivers the expertise needed to manage it all, from designing the layout, to choosing appliances, cabinets, flooring, plumbing, and lighting fixtures. What’s the minimum allowable space between an island and the outer counter? How big a refrigerator do you really need? What are the pros and cons of stone vs. laminate countertops? What’s the handiest way to store the mixer and the food processor? All the answers are here. And since the ultimate object of great kitchen design is great cooking, there’s a whole chapter on kitchen tools based on recommendations from leading chefs.
