Product Description

A chic, polished guide to creating your dream kitchen from the cofounder of Waterworks, with hundreds of images and practical advice.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, the destination of every party, everyone''s favorite gathering spot, where style and functionality must go hand in hand. Designing a kitchen is a vastly complicated affair, involving an array of appliances (movable and fixed) and storage zones, not to mention addressing the kitchen''s role as a multifunctional social arena to be used from very early in the morning until late into the night. Creating a timeless, high-functioning space is daunting indeed. Where is one to begin?

In The Perfect Kitchen, Waterworks cofounder Barbara Sallick explores the process of designing a kitchen in great and beautiful detail, from surfaces and finishes to storage, cabinetry, and hardware. The book is enriched by dozens of images of kitchens by esteemed designers such as Steven Gambrel, Gil Schafer, and Suzanne Kasler; essays by top food icons including Julia Turshen and Melissa Clark about their own kitchens; and important, how-to advice.

Combining evocative, informative photography with an authoritative, engaging narrative, The Perfect Kitchen is an essential, lasting resource that will appeal to discerning homeowners and professionals alike looking for upscale visual inspiration and design advice.

Review

"If you own Barbara''s The Perfect Bath, you know that you are in for a treat with her latest book, The Perfect Kitchen.  It is absolutely beautiful and oh so helpful!" —SPLENDID SASS 

"Sallick, who co-founded the luxury kitchen-and bath-furnishings emporium Waterworks, has created the ultimate design handbook for the most important room in the house." —MOSAIC MAGAZINE 

"Whatever their workaday origins, today’s sculleries are definitely “upstairs” affairs, with most bearing little resemblance to the humble service quarters of centuries past. In her forthcoming book, “The Perfect Kitchen” (Rizzoli),Barbara Sallick, co-founder and vice president of design for Waterworks, points out that you never see kitchens in books about Dorothy Draper and other early 20th- and midcentury American decorators, mainly because—as the domain of housekeepers, cooks and other “scullery maids”—they were never meant to be seen by the public. “Now, though, we’re seeing the design of these rooms being deeply considered as part of a home,” she explained."
—WALL STREET JOURNAL 

"In her upcoming book The Perfect Kitchen (out on March 24th), Barbara Sallick, co-founder and SVP of Design at Waterworks, spills the beans on a room that is perhaps the most loved and used but also the most complicated to design." —SCHUMACHER BULLETIN 

Since cofounding Waterworks, a high-end hardware company, in 1978, [Sallick]’s gathered more than 40 years of experience in the reno world. Next week she launches her second book,  The Perfect Kitchen, a guide to help anyone dream up their perfect workspace. “It’s about so much more than cabinetry and appliances,” explains Sallick. “It’s the most communal room, and it has a unique kind of gravitational pull.” —DOMINO

"...a book that looks seriously at a number of architect-designed spaces for cooking, gathering and preparation." —ARCHITECTS + ARTISANS 

"Design icon, author and co-founder of Waterworks, Barbara Sallick, is getting ready to release her second book—The Perfect Kitchen—a robust collection of stunning kitchens, designed by the world’s top talent. Not just a great resource for inspiration and visual splendor, the book also provides practical advice on how to design a dream kitchen. " —CALIFORNIA HOMES & DESIGN 

"If you truly want to create your dream kitchen, don''t miss this book by design icon Barbara Sallick." —MODERN LUXURY INTERIORS SOUTH FLORIDA

I''m a Kitchen and Bath Designer and I''m always looking for beautiful design examples for my clients. I do not want content readily available on Pinterest. Why spend $50 for something you can get for free, right?
This book is not only gorgeous, but full of new and attainable designs. There is color, there are variations in kitchen size. Some are open concept, some are not.
WELL DONE!!!
My only gripe is that the author did not do her homework regarding the history of the kitchen. Flow and function were actually a concern of the middle-late 1800s, although it was slow to progress because of economical or domestic help reasons.
That being said, the book deserves 5 stars purely for its originality and variety. (Don''t worry - this book is NOT dominated by white subway tile, although, being a classic element, it is featured throughout.)
I would classify the content as classy, elegant, and fresh transitional with a bit of modern and industrial added for flavor. A book for everyone.

I particularly like the insets where famous chefs and food writers talk about their own "perfect" kitchens and what they love most about or want most from the room. Great for helping me understand what I like and what I do not.

Do not buy this book. Ignore the other reviews, this is just a collection of photos of predominantly North American kitchens that have no relevance to people in the UK unless your trying to create a US style kitchen. The entire lighting section is 123 words in a 270 page book! You will get more information on kitchen design in a B&Q kitchen catalogue. Save yourself £30 and go on Pinterest and pick up a home renovation and DIY magazine for tips on kitchen design. Both will be far more useful than this book.

CONTENTS:

PART 1: Matters of Style

As the heart of the home, the kitchen touches on realms of memory and intimacy—elements much more challenging to get right than functionality or flow. How the room looks determines how it makes you feel, which is why, in the kitchen, finding the right style remains essential.

PART II: Matters of Substance

A high-functioning kitchen is more than a matter of state-of-the-art equipment. Quite the contrary: you can have the best of everything, but if your kitchen doesn’t derive organically from your preferences and circumstances, you’ll be disappointed (at great expense). Assess your needs honestly, plan effectively, and execute carefully—that’s substance.

PART III: Ancillary Spaces

What do we mean when we say “the kitchen”? Is it one room or the sum total of its main and ancillary spaces? In fact, if you’ve got the square footage, a pantry, laundry, bar, flower room, and mudroom may prove as indispensable to your kitchen as the kitchen itself.

PART IV: Details

In matters great and small, there can be no macro without micro, and this is especially the case in the kitchen, in which the significance of the well-chosen detail cannot be overstated.
