Kitchen Remodeling for Dummies by Donald R. Prestly
Book DescriptionReal estate, building, and remodeling surveys reveal that the one project likely to give you a 100 percent return on the dollars invested is a kitchen remodel. And whether the project is as involved as gutting the room back to the wall studs or as simple as applying a fresh coat of paint, each project is an investment in your home's value and, ultimately, in your enjoyment of using the space.

The kitchen in today's home has become a focal point for the family, as well as for entertaining. For those reasons, you want the room to be as functional as possible, without breaking your bankbook.With "Kitchen Remodeling For Dummies" in hand, you'll get the lowdown on the following topics and more: the kitchen remodeling process (knowing this makes you a smarter consumer); critical design issues; working with the pros: architect, designer, contractor; establishing a budget and sticking with it; evaluating your plumbing, electrical, and ventilation systems; selecting and installing cabinets and countertops; choosing sinks, faucets, and appliances; working on walls, windows, and floors; and, hot trends and easy upgrades.
