Planning a new kitchen is a challenging and exhausting task. But it's well worth the effort. Not only does one gain a new kitchen that is more efficient and attractive than the old one, but a new kitchen is also a strong selling point when a house is put on the market. Ultimate Guide to Kitchens guides the reader through the process of designing and doing the work involved with remodeling a kitchen or building a new one from scratch. It offers 60 of the most popular remodeling projects. Homeowners will find inspirational information on layout and design, but most of the book covers step-by-step instruction in installing sinks, faucets, countertops, appliances, and floor and wall finishes. General construction projects, such as building walls, adding windows, and completing electrical and plumbing work are also covered. The ?Money Matters” section works as a useful guide to achieving the desired kitchen while cutting costs, choosing the right professionals, along with do-it-yourself tasks that help homeowners save on labor. Ultimate Guide to Kitchens provides readers with an extensive glossary of all the components needed in designing and building their new kitchen.
