Kitchens in typical households use the bulk of energy. When combined with bathrooms, they also consume an average of 1140 L (300 gal) of water daily. Published by Wiley, the U.S. National Kitchen and Bath Association’s (NKBA’s) Kitchen & Bath Sustainable Design is a manual to greening these rooms, both for new construction and remodelling projects. Case studies of various projects demonstrate design strategies for energy efficiency, water consumption, and environmental impact, while also including standards and code-compliance information. Readers will be able to analyze a design’s sustainability, as well as access information on current technology, material use, and best practices. Visit ca.wiley.com.
