Fantasizing about the perfect kitchen? Susan Breen, one of America's leading kitchen consultants and writers, shows how to make that dream come true.

With brilliant photos, detailed floor plans, professional tips, and illuminating case studies, design expert Susan Breen reveals the art of creating the perfect kitchen.
