The New Bungalow Kitchen

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The American love affair with the Bungalow continues. And in this most adored housing style, it is the kitchen that homeowners must most often restore, renovate, or remodel. But no one wants an authentic Bungalow kitchen, which was a rustic space that usually featured just a stove, a hoosier, and a sink.

While there are books that describe the authentic Bungalow kitchen, there are few that show readers how to update a Bungalow to handle today's lifestyle needs and personal preferences. Happily, manufacturers today understand the demand, and there are many material and appliance options for homeowners--and the designers they hire--to bring contemporary convenience and beauty to an updated or new Bungalow kitchen. The New Bungalow Kitchen not only provides wonderful historical nuggets about Bungalow kitchens, it offers a plethora of ideas about how to create a tastefully restored or remodeled kitchen, or build new within the style.

Book News Annotation:

Strongly influenced by the Arts and Craft movement of the late 19th century, bungalow-style homes are back in vogue. LaBau, founder of a Lexington, Massachusetts-based firm that specializes in building and renovating traditional homes, shares his enthusiasm for the bungalow aesthetic and tips on "living design" that blends this historic style with efficiency. Remodeling issues addressed include creating informal eating nooks that the original kitchens lacked, accommodating modern appliances, expanding storage space, and updating lighting and other features. The 10x10.5" guide includes before-and-after photographs and floor plans, and resources. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
