Reviews for Design Details: Integrating Appliances into a Kitchen Plan
I was extremely disappointed. It focused way too much on appearance and assumed that there are only two kinds of clients: those who have deep pockets and care more about how a kitchen looks and how you show it off than how it functions, and those who think only about the cost. This is nonsense. My clients think about energy efficiency, how to clean up and store conveniently as well as cook conveniently, and how to make a small kitchen work well. The important question of how extreme heat from a flush oven when it's opened during broiling affects all that surrounding cabinetry over time is not addressed. And many photos and plans violate the guidelines shown at the end. I also find that the kitchen triangle is inadequate as a basic planning tool. Carrying a heavy pot of boiling water to drain across a circulation path to a sink 9' away is more of a problem than having the fridge farther away.Leah G.

Painless course with some interesting info. More for people who know nothing about kitchen design. But I still learned a few things. Would have liked to see some specific details because some of the kitchens shown were terrific.Beyhan T.

Really good design focused content. I disagree with the answers I missed in the quiz - perhaps could be worded more clearly.Jessica E.

This is a great introduction to integrating appliances into the kitchen layout for designers and includes some additional data useful as installation and construction advice. It was completely enjoyable and helpful for designing kitchen layouts.Ed S.

A must-have course for those serious about offering a complete architectural design service. Kitchens are the core of the home, so knowing how to harmonically place them, makes the difference in the whole design process.Ricardo T.

Very basic kitchen planning session. Would be a good tool for a first time re-modeler or novice client to become aware of the how-s and potentials of kitchen design.George G.
