The kitchen is increasingly recognised as the heart of the home. No longer simply a place for cooking food and storing provisions, it is also the room where meals are served and where family and friends congregate. So, as 'Kitchens' demonstrates, there is every reason why it should be as stylish, comfortable and functional as any other room.
An opening chapter on planning is followed by a survey of the four main styles in kitchen design: Traditional – a practical approach that never goes out of fashion; Simple Country – also based on historical influences, but more streamlined in
appearance; Simple Modern – neat and pared down without being stark; and, finally, New Professional – the kitchen for the serious cook, where restaurant-grade tools and equipment are adapted for the home.
'Kitchens' includes a comprehensive overview of kitchen equipment and offers a multitude of creative ideas for decorating and adding colour to the room. A comprehensive suppliers' guide directs you to the best sources of kitchen
appliances, materials and fittings.
