The tour might begin in the kitche, where wed acquaint you with every aspect of this all-important room. Kitchen designers would hlep you analyze how well it works for your family. Decorators would advise how you could create a new look. Architects would show how to plan minor or major improvements on paper. Appliance specialists would inform you about your equipment options. Home management experts would explain how to hire and work with a contractor, how to finance major improvements, even how to best keep your kitchen clean, safe and trouble-free.Leaf through the pages of YOUR KITCHEN and youll find information, ideas, and guidance about all of these topics. YOUR KITCHEN began when we perceived a need for a comprehensive, up-to-date book that would draw upon the experience Better Homes and Gardens has gained in more than 60 years of serving homemakers. Our goal was to truly tell all about your kitchen.Of course, the photos youll see ---more than 100 of them---dont necessarily show your kitchen as it is today, and you may even doubt whether it could ever look as good or function as well as the examples weve selected. Delve deeper into the book, though, and you may begin thinking differently about your kitchen. Maybe all it needs is a fresh styling motif, or a face-lifting of wall, counter, floor, and cabinet surfaces. Or perhaps youve been thinking about what a complete remodeling might be like. Photographs, floor plans, charts, and cutaway views help you explore all the alternatives---and tell how you can achieve them. Weve even included three pages of templates you can use to the the kitchen of your dreams out of your dreams and onto paper.
