Wiley Releases Fully Updated NKBA References for Kitchen & Bath Planners and Designers

March 4, 2013 – John Wiley and Sons, Inc., the leading publisher of interior design education, today announced the publication of two new resources for professional kitchen and bathroom designers from the National Kitchen and Bath Association, the only non-profit trade association dedicated to the kitchen and bath industry.  Each in their second edition, Kitchen Planning: Guidelines, Codes, Standards (March 2013, $95.00), and Bath Planning: Guidelines, Codes, Standards (February 2013, $95.00) are the go to references for both professional designers and students seeking technical and aesthetic information presented in full-color with the latest on universal and sustainable design.  

Both books have been written by leading industry authorities and reviewed by an Association panel of experts. The two new books represent the current best practices in creating the two most important rooms of the house based on the latest extensive industry research.

Each book incorporates the relevant NKBA Kitchen and Bathroom Planning Guidelines and the related Access Standards. The National Kitchen & Bath Association established the standard guidelines and specifications for safe and effective kitchen and bath planning and these updated editions now published by Wiley reflect the latest industry standards.

Bath Planning, one of the leading titles in the NKBA's Professional Resource Library, has been used by the majority of bath design college programs as well as professional designers and industry professionals who have become Certified Bath Designers.

Whether for remodels or new construction, professional kitchen designers need to know the process of planning a project and to meet codes and aesthetic requirements, as they manage their business in an ethical and profitable manner.  Kitchen Planning tackles the most popular and lucrative area of residential interior design. This book also makes the perfect reference for any kitchen designer wanting to advance their career as a Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD). 

Completely revised and redesigned throughout with new photographs and illustrations in full color, and with a special emphasis on client needs, research, and industry information, these two new references will constantly be at the fingertips of both students and professional designers. Both Bath Planning and Kitchen Planning are now available for purchase online and at retailers nationwide in both print and all e-book formats. For a list of retailers, visit www.wiley.com.
