The kitchen is the heart of one’s home, and this two-part workshop from Boston Building Resources will cover everything you need to know to design a kitchen that fits your lifestyle. In Part 1 (September 22), we start with a basic floor plan and cover the many variables that must be considered: appliance standards, door and window openings, storage needs, budget, and more. In Part 2 (September 29), we examine cabinets and countertops—materials, styles, and price ranges. Participants may submit floor plans of their individual projects, and one will be chosen at random for examination in greater detail.

Today’s homebuyers are awash in information that can sway what is probably the biggest purchase of their lives.
