Luxury kitchens are the hottest trend in the home construction and remodeling business, even in relatively modest homes, where owners are compromising elsewhere in order to afford the best possible kitchen. Black & Decker The Complete Guide to Dream Kitchens shows homeowners what's hot and what's not, and gives practical information on how they can achieve the kitchens of their fantasies. Recent innovations in planning and room layout are covered in detail, and the merits of premium building materials and appliances are discussed and compared. Readers will also learn how to work with professional contractors to get the kitchen they want -- on budget and on time.

But this is a book not only for dreaming, but also for doing. An impressive chapter gives more than a dozen actual how-to projects for creating luxury kitchen features easily and with professional results. For example, ambitious readers will learn how to create a polished concrete countertop; how to measure, order and install granite surfaces; how to create custom cove lighting systems; how to install a deep-basin sink; how a self-venting fireplace can become part of a remodeled kitchen. Black & Decker The Complete Guide to Dream Kitchens will delight dreamers and doers alike.
