As Americans hunger for home improvement, Lowe's and Home Depot have risen to the status of weekend hotspots. Home-design shows like Trading Spaces are flourishing up and down the television dial, mirroring the national nesting craze. And the most-remodeled room in the nest is the kitchen.

While remodeling can be a stressful experience, Everything and the Kitchen Sink demystifies the kitchen design and remodeling process with a humorous, down-to-earth, and candid approach that lets readers know exactly what they're in for-and how to triumph.

Savvy homeowners really need to be involved in every step of a kitchen remodel, whether they're leaving the labor to the pros or rolling up their sleeves to tackle the project solo. Planning and foresight are crucial to a successful and (relatively) painless remodeling project.

Researching design options, hiring contractors, budgeting, making smart purchases, cutting costs, financing, surviving the chaos of installations, and effective problem-solving are explained in straightforward, user-friendly detail.

While learning how to successfully navigate the process, readers will also explore hundreds of exciting and innovative ideas for creating a dream kitchen at any price point. Floor plans, diagrams, and beautiful four-color and black-and-white photographs help readers visualize their own finished projects.
