Kitchen Design for the 21st Century
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2006 - House & Home - 191 pages
John Drieman, the former publisher of Best Kitchens & Baths magazine, has teamed up with renowned interior photographer Nancy Elizabeth Hill to write the first truly different kitchen design book of the 21st Century. This copiously illustrated, forward-looking guide captures all the groundbreaking changes in the way we think of, and use, this important room. These kitchens are bigger, often incorporated into a family’s main living space, and include a multitude of distinct work centers. Drieman explains exactly how to create such a room, with advice on planning and budget; adding the latest appliances, countertops, and cabinetry; and making the space seem either bigger or cozier. The book’s entire second half takes readers on a photographic tour of 20 unique kitchens ranging from country casual to high tech.
