Question: We are thinking of remodeling our kitchen and need ideas in regard to overall coordination of colors and materials. Can you help?
Answer: Several manufacturers have gotten their act together, and set up a joint "Success Systems" at P.O. Box 2256, Fort Worth, Tex. 76119. They have issued publications on the integrated usage of their products and materials for kitchen and bathroom designs.
American Standard features the various plumbing fixtures while Kitchen Aid furnishes the home appliances. Maddington Floor Coverings provides the vinyl sheet flooring and Wilson Art furnishes the laminated kitchen tops and built-ins. Together, their concepts are truly outstanding in that they play on the new, light, fashionable colors and have designed some outstanding ideas that can be applied to any kitchen or bathroom remodeling project.
The new trend is toward the European style in both kitchens and baths; however, not the cluttered concept or any concept in which the decor is not practical for American usage. The new lines are spectacular and the usage of colors are excellent.
