Updated with all-new content for 2002, Terence Conran's invaluable reference on kitchens tackles the most complex design project in the house. In many ways the heart of the home, the kitchen is a place where style and function can coexist magnificently.

In terms of planning, the kitchen makes unique demands, and Conran covers both the overarching style concerns and the nitty-gritty practicalities of making your dream kitchen a reality. The book ranges from the basics of good design (whether you're starting from scratch or fitting new appliances into an old layout) to an encyclopedic look at all the materials (storage, lighting, worktops, and more) available to the kitchen designer today. As always, Conran provides case studies and floor plans, bring-ing the best kitchens within reach of every reader.
