Publisher Comments:

The arrival of Bungalow Kitchens, a new book by Jane Powell with photographs by Linda Svendsen, addresses a need that has gone unmet for a suprisingly long time, considering the duration of the bungalow revival and the number of more general bungalow books already published. All in all, Bungalow Kitchens is a splendid first entry on the subject, filled with usefull information and facinating details about these oft-mangled rooms. Powell knows her subject first-hand — she makes a living by purchasing, restoring and reselling dilapidated houses, primarily bungalows. The kitchens displayed in Svendsen's handsome, straightforward photographs are original, nearly original or re-created to resemble an original. One of the books best features is a set of sidebars included in each section entitled "Obsessive Restoration" and "Compromise Solution." The former lets purists know exactly what to do for absolute authenticity and the other for those seeking a middle ground using the many fine reproductions that are available. Bungalow Kitchens is a must-read for any bungalow dweller with kitchen woes, which includes just about all of us.

Synopsis:

Bungalow Kitchens: Bungalow and Period kitchens come alive in this style book with how to complete, a reference guide and exquisite photographs. This is the ultimate guidebook to preserving the beauty and integrity of the past while adapting it to the utilitarian values of the present.

81/2x10 in, 160Pp, 120 Color Photographs, 25 Black and White Photographs, and line drawings.

Synopsis:

Filled with handsome photographs of retro-style kitchens, this is a "what to" book for those who want to learn how to restore or re-create a bungalow-era kitchen. It is filled with invaluable information describing what was in these kitchens, when it was available, and how it went together. You will be inspired to re-create the Bungalow aesthetic of old while enjoying contemporary conveniences.
