"80% of consumers want to redo their kitchens," says Kitchen and Bath Design News, and most of them will want to pull their hair out at some point in the process! Appliances or cabinets don't fit or open right, the floor or walls aren't straight or plumb, the range hood is a head-banger, the contractor forgot to ask about everything! New kitchen design book offers “I wish I’d thought of that!” help and support.

With so many custom choices for kitchens, it's easy to get into trouble...I wanted to help readers recognize and eliminate costly design errors.

4 out of 10 DIY homeowners will make at least one mistake remodeling their kitchen, typical mistakes an experienced kitchen designer can easily spot. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to hire a professional, even if they find one.
