Residential Kitchen and Bath Design provides students with a core knowledge of this interior design sub-specialty and equips them with skills they can use to create residential kitchens and baths that are both functional and beautiful. The text begins with an overview of the kitchen and bath industries, covering the designer's role at each step of the design process. It then goes on to explain functional and ergonomic considerations in the arrangement of appliances, fixtures, and storage, and provides detailed instruction on communicating designs to clients and tradespeople using floor plans, models, and other renderings. Issues related to codes, regulations, and costs are reviewed, as are the NKBA planning guidelines for space planning and drawing plans for kitchens and bathrooms.
