The kitchen: command center of the home, headquarters for all things edible, family-member traffic funnel. Whether you're a bachelor or bachelorette in a small starter home or part of a larger family, if this isn't the most-used room in your house, you must not be home very often. In the kitchen, functionality and aesthetics go hand-in-hand; the mood is just as important as the machinery, and if you're looking to capitalize on the space in your home - no matter how big or small - you're going to need a few pointers. Fortunately, in Kitchen Ideas You Can Use, our home Do-It-Yourself expert Chris Peterson gives you a chapter-by-chapter breakdown of all the kitchen essentials: cabinets, countertops, appliances, flooring, wall treatments, storage, islands, eat-in areas, lighting, and ventilation. Kitchen remodeling is normally the most expensive home improvement project. But with over 300 inspiring photographs, Peterson's straightforward insights, and our attention to the latest trends from professional designers, you can skip the cost of hiring a professional and craft your own kitchen--your own way. From choosing between traditional and induction cooktops to drawing up the most efficient layout scheme and landing on that perfect backsplash, Kitchen Ideas You Can Use might finally be the one thing in your house more useful than the microwave.

IMPRESS WITH SUBTLE ELEGANCE. You don’t necessarily need bold colors
View larger View larger

Today’s kitchen is one of the busiest multipurpose rooms in a home. Not only does it see a lot of foot traffic, it also serves many different roles at different times. It may be a place to prepare food in the morning and evening, but can also be a place to eat a leisurely (or not so leisurely) meal, a workroom to tackle homework and bills, and a conference center for family meetings. And, more than ever, today’s kitchen is the home’s social center, where friends and family gather to relax and share down time. The best kitchen design not only accounts for all these different roles, it actually enhances them and makes them more pleasurable.

That’s a lot to ask from any room design, especially one in which comfort is king. Fortunately, you’ve never had a broader range and diversity of kitchen design elements from which to choose. Surface options alone—materials to clad the floors, countertops, backsplashes, and walls—are offered in a headspinning number of variations. Choose the innate beauty and durability of natural quarry stone, the latest exciting versions of inexpensive laminates, or from among a bevy of recycled materials that will ensure your kitchen is as “green” as possible. And green isn’t just a movement; it’s one of a rainbow of hues included as surface options.

The ongoing trend toward more color in this traditionally neutral-colored space has led to all kinds of new and exciting looks. Large appliances, tiles, fixtures, and cabinetry are all offered in eye-catching colors. The bolder hues popular a few years ago have given way to a somewhat subtler palette, but the desire of homeowners to introduce more color into their kitchens continues unabated.
