Few spaces in the home have responded as profoundly to societal changes as the kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen has gained prominence in the context of a tendency to enjoy meals at home as a new center for family and social gatherings, and as an alternative to the formal character of a dining room or living room. The bathroom, on the other hand, is the perfect setting for personal care rituals, which have become increasingly popular in today's culture of well-being.
Homeowners spend more money on these two rooms than any other in the home. Manufacturers have responded to the demand by creating a wide range of features and design possibilities that help to adapt these two rooms perfectly to the needs of homeowners.
200 Tips for Kitchens and Bathrooms provides great advice and examples that will help to achieve a kitchen or bathroom worthy of design magazines but eminently functional. How to optimize space, the best position for furniture, what equipment to choose according to family size and lifestyle, the most suitable coverings and lighting that adapts to a room's layout and the user's needs--these are just some of the basic aspects addressed and illustrated with photographs of contemporary homes.
The book is organized into two sections--Kitchens and Bathrooms-- each with dozens of photographs showing the stunning design possibilities. The focus is on contemporary and highly functional furniture and fixtures shown in real-life settings. Detailed captions describe the fittings and the factors driving the choices.
Homeowners and designers alike will find 200 Tips for Kitchens and Bathrooms a rich source of inspiration as much as a practical resource.
