Cabin Kitchens & Baths
Franklin and Esther Schmidt

E-mail the Authors

Although cabins are typically rustic and informal, that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve smartly designed and decorated kitchens and bathrooms.

The Schmidts - a husband-and-wife team who have written about (and photographed) hundreds of log and timber frame cabins - review the basics of kitchen and bath architecture and architectural elements, furnishings, appliances, design and decor. With copious ideas for islands, countertops, cabinets, breakfast nooks, linen closets, windows and wall coverings, their book will be of use to both do-it-yourselfers and those planning to enlist the services of a kitchen designer.

While every kitchen and bathroom the authors depict does fall somewhere in the "rustic" rubric, within that style readers will find ideas for design themes ranging from Old West to English cottage to Adirondack to Country Americana.  Casual, non-specialist language and colorful pages make this how-to book accessible and inviting.
