Easy Kitchen Upgrades, another in the popular Stanley Quick Guide series, is a valuable reference for homeowners looking to undertake simple home repair projects without a lot of stress.
The concise, easy-to-understand and fully illustrated instruction manual offers solid advice for do-it-yourselfers who have some knowledge of home maintenance and repair but don’t want to be stymied by more pro-level information offered in other, similar titles.
With the Stanley brand behind it, Easy Kitchen Upgrades by Dave Toht gives homeowners everything they need to know about tools and materials as well as:
- refreshing wood cabinets
- upgrading cabinet pulls
- adding a tile backsplash, under-cabinet lights, and an under-sink water purifier
- installing a GFCI receptacle
- replacing a ceiling light fixture, a stove vent hood, a faucet, and a garbage disposal
Dave Toht, a former contractor with decades of hands-on experience, fondly remembers his first house located in the sometimes frigid, sometimes frying Midwest. Built in 1854, it was loaded with opportunities for caulking, glazing, weatherstripping and insulating. He has written or edited more than 60 books on home repair and remodeling.
