"Kitchens are an increasingly important facet of residential design, and often result in the highest cost per square foot of any room in a residence. Residential Kitchen Design offers a research-based method for both creating new kitchens and remodeling existing ones. It responds to today's lifestyle factors, technology, and house sizes to accommodate clients in the 1990s and into the next century." "This guide updates the concept of kitchen centers presented by Glenn Beyer in the early 1950s, incorporating the current philosophies of universal design and accessibility. Detailed, specific guidelines are provided for successful design of conventional and increasingly popular multiple-cook kitchens. The design process for kitchen renovation projects is included in response to the trend toward housing renovation and rehabilitation." "Specific instructions on implementation are particularly useful. The authors address every design step from needs assessment to the construction phase." "Both a new and a remodeling project are illustrated to demonstrate each step of the application process in kitchen design. Included are extensive graphics that clarify various design methods and solutions to spatial problems that may confront the designer." "Appendices feature a list of design and construction documents required to bring the kitchen concept to reality, tables that assist with lighting design, and sources for additional information on specific products and appliances." "The design method employed makes Residential Kitchen Design as accessible for design newcomers as it is for experienced professionals. It will be a valuable source for interior designers, architects, builders/developers, and kitchen designers."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
