often combine the counters with Cor-
ian sinks, providing a slick, seamless
appearance. This also provides a
great deal of flexibility because you
can have almost any size or style sink
anywhere in the kitchen you'd like it
to be. Both Corian and many new
Kohler sinks are undercoated, which
eliminates many water and disposal
noises.
Also popular if space is available
are second sinks. They're great for
more than one cook, for vegetable
preparation, and for fixing drinks
when guests join you in the kitchen.
Around the country, the trend in
flooring is to either ceramic tile or oak
floors, both in light tones. Vinyl is also
used, especially if cost is a major
consideration.
In ceramic tile, there is a strong
trend to terra cotta tiles. The most
popular color is natural clay, follow-
ed by paler, "almost pickled" look-

ing colors such as light salmon and
light pink. Although terra cotta tile
traditionally is unglazed, there are
now glazed tiles with the same rustic
look.
However, the most popular ceramic
flooring is glazed tiles, and especial-
ly in a monochromatic look. All-white
is the best selling color, and the best
selling size is 12-inches by 12-inches.
Now that you know what's popular,
what is this new kitchen going to cost
you? According to the NKBA survey,
the average cost for a new kitchen is
$17,420. But according to suppliers
and contractors, costs can really vary,
from $6,000 to $35,000. A basic pack-
age of brand name appliances will
run you $2,500. A large kitchen with
custom-wood cabinets can run
$20,000 to $25,000 before applian-
ces. And if you add granite counter-
tops and ceramic tile floors, high-end
appliances and two sinks, well . . . no
one will ever say it's all down the
drain.
