LOTS of tips and ideas at the DIY Network web site!

http://media.diynet.com/DIY/Weekend_Projects_newsletter/wp_vol_013/DWPNL012408.html

* Turn your kitchen into the the stylish, functional cooking space you crave, and do it for less. Searchable videos and tons of projects give you lots to consider.

* A cooking area with limited room to move poses several challenges. Find out how to maximize design, function and space to rival the largest kitchens.

* Renovating your kitchen is a popular way to increase your home's value. Even with an unlimited budget, careful planning and thoughtful design are crucial.

    Spruce-Ups for Small Kitchens: Create convenience and the illusion of space
    By Tom Kraeutler, AOL Home Improvement Editor
