The place where everyone wants to hang out is elevated to the room everyone dreams of having in House Beautiful Kitchens.
Author Lisa Cregan treats readers to a tour of more than 130 out-of-the-ordinary kitchens, from closet-size cubbyholes to expansive gathering spaces. Some aren’t even kitchens in the strictest sense, but rather dining or living rooms outfitted to do double duty.
For the most part, they’re rooms that defy simple style categories. They’re far from all flash, though. The kitchens showcase smart storage, time-saving features, hard-working surfaces and other ideas that readers can steal for their own homes.
House Beautiful Kitchens is published by Hearst Books and sells for $40 in hardcover.
