There’s An App for That.

These days, it seems like there’s an app for everything; we can stream music, get score updates for the game, and even throw tiny, angry birds at unassuming pigs. NKBA has hopped on this bandwagon with their awesome Kitchen & Bath Guidelines App. The app gives homeowners instant and easy access to the same information available in the newly revised NKBA Kitchen & Bathroom Planning Guidelines.

Here’s what they have to say about the app: If a major renovation project is in the cards this season, be a smart homeowner and stay up-to-date with first-hand information on safe and effective planning of kitchens and bathrooms! The NKBA Kitchen & Bathroom Planning Guidelines app, voted one of the “Top 100: Best New Home Products 2012” by This Old House, has been developed to reflect the current industry environment, future trends, consumer lifestyles, new research, new building codes, and current industry practices.

The app is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android platforms, features 31 fully searchable guidelines for kitchens and 27 guidelines for bathrooms, and is illustrated in full color with plans, sections, and perspective views to show planning recommendations and code references and requirements, as well as Access Standards that consider the needs of a range of users.

Additional features include:

• Keyword search or browse by room
• Metric conversion of measurements
• Newly revised planning guidelines for kitchens and bathrooms that reflect the 2012 International Residential Code (IRC) and the ICC A117.1-2009 Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities Standards

All of this Kitchen and Bath fabulousness can be yours for $4.99 on iTunes or the Android Marketplace. This seems like the perfect tool for anyone doing any first-time renovations or building projects. Even if you’re bringing in a professional to help, it always pays to be informed and will help you feel in-control and involved with your Kitchen/Bathroom overhaul! Go forth and conquer!
