The Art of Kitchen Design by Johnny Grey
Is the kitchen a workspace or a living space? Most people would surely answer that it is both. The average family spends more time in the kitchen than in any other room in the home. Yet in many houses and apartments the kitchen is at best a purely functional area to be clothed in efficient-looking fitted cupboards, units and surface, or cluttered with unattractive tables and stools. In this book, a kitchen architect shows that a kitchen can be efficient and contemporary yet at the same time offer the traditional comforts and style of an elegant living space. It shows 'unfitted' kitchens solutions working in every type of kitchen space - from large and lofty to small and awkward. As well as presenting case studies, it is full of ideas that will interest not only anyone planning a new kitchen but also designers, architects, decorators and craft enthusiasts.
