HAVE A BETTER KITCHEN
One of the prime considerations
in kitchen remodeling is the con
dition of the pocketbook. But you
will be pleasantly surprised at the
convenience gained by the addi
tion of a few strategically placed
pieces of equipment which meet
even the minimum budget.
First, of course, you must de
termine what is needed most. Per
haps it's the sink, the center of
all kitchen activity. If yours is the
old fashioned, wall hung type with-
out a cabinet, you’d better start
remodeling here. There are mod-
ern steel cabinet sinks on the mar-
ket for $100 or less.
Or, perhaps the immediate cry
ing need in your kitchen is more
storage space. Just one cabinet
may turn the trick, if it is located
in tbe spot where the need is great

These units, purchased and in
stalled under a strict budget, can
be the start of a really up-to-date
kitchen, says the Youngstown
Kitchen Planning Service. As the
budget allows, add more units un
til your plan is complete It is im
portant to choose equipment that
is well standardized as to styling
so that when the job is finished
all units will match.
If you're building this step-by
step kitchen around the present
range and refrigerator, it is ad
visable to leave some space be
tween these appliances and ad
jacent base cabinets to permit
easy cleaning and servicing of the
appliances. Also, you may want to
replace these units and the extra
space will make installation eas
Don't forget that the walls and
floors may need some treatment
when you have completely equipped
the room. Floor covering, wall pa
per and tile, available in so many
colors and patterns, will enhance
the beauty of the new kitchen.
