1001 Ideas For Kitchen Organization

Joseph R. Provey, Author . Creative Homeowner $24.95 (253p) ISBN 978-1-58011-361-8

This latest volume from the 1001 Ideas series (...for Windows, ...for Color and Paint, etc.) gives practical, imaginative help on how to create a dream kitchen or cure a dysfunctional one, whether you're designing from scratch, remodeling or just frustrated with your cooking space. After instructing the reader on organizational principles and “finding efficiency” in the kitchen, with an emphasis on balancing accessibility with tidiness and making the most of your space, the authors delve into the details of cabinets, countertops, overhead and vertical spaces, previously unusable nooks and crannies, etc. Clever inventions such as a cookbook holder hung from the bottom of a cabinet, multicolored collapsible silicon colanders, pull-down shelves and triangular sink “tilt-outs” to hold the soap offer stylish and playful relief for the space-challenged. This book is a good addition to any remodeler's library. (Sept.)
