Inside this Issue: Dream Kitchens & Baths

From the Editors of Dream Kitchens & Baths

Selecting new cabinets, shiny faucets, and scene-setting tile is part of the fun of designing a kitchen or bath. But no matter how excited you are about your new space, there comes a point in any remodeling or building project when the choices about appliances, fixtures, and surfaces can become a bit overwhelming. We will help you set your worries aside and start your design adventure! We promise that all the decisions will be more than worth it when you welcome your first dinner guests into your kitchen’s new eating area or when you step into your spacious soaking tub at the end of a long day.

The first step is to determine what mood you would like to set in your new space. Turn the pages and see what speaks to you. Do you like the streamlined, clutter-free look of the modern indoor-outdoor kitchen in “Smooth Operator,” page 38?

Knowing what look you hope to achieve in your new room can make selecting products much easier—so you can keep the focus on enjoying your new space instead of getting bogged down by the details along the way. Just remember that each decorating decision or product selection will bring you one step closer to your dream space. We’re excited to help you get inspired for your next project!
