It then goes on to explain functional and ergonomic considerations in the arrangement of appliances, fixtures, and storage, and provides detailed instruction on communicating designs to clients and tradespeople using floor plans, models and other renderings. Issues related to codes, regulations, and costs are reviewed, as are the NKBA planning guidelines for space planning and drawing plans for kitchens and bathrooms.
