And there's no need to^ry, when you can • have a kitchen that's brightened by color! C' f -''~ For color has come into the kitchen to stay! We've had it in curtains, floor coverings, pots and pans, and smaller items, such as drawer knobs. But now you can create an even stronger impression of cheerfulness.

Whether you?''prefer pastels or i the stronger pwmary shades, you can get a set that suits your taste. 1 There are some beauties in chrome and many with handsome cabinet work in maple, oak, and other woods. Wide Choice of Tops Among the table top materials available in these sets and in ordinary kitchen tables, you'll find porcelain enamel, linoleum, bakelite, wood, and others.

How often have you searched frantically through a collection of utensils in one of your deep drawers, trying to find the egg beater or a certain paring knife j Ji just at the time when you were attempting to get everything for dinner on schedule? Another thing—how many times have you burned a hand "or an arm trying to get at the chops broiling in your old-fashioned oven? There ara a good many "mental hazards" lurking in the average kitchen. So it's good news that the planning experts are giving them careful consideration in planning new layouts for the modern kitchen. Here Are Common Hazards In fact, an entire meeting at a recent session on kitchen planning was devoted to this subject. Here are-some of the conditions considered by these authorities as not only annoying and nerve- wracking, .but likely to lead to minor accidents and injuries as well: Swinging doors leading to the dining room or the rear porch, especially when located near a refrigerator, range, or sink. Drawers and cabinet doors that stick. Old-style range ovens in which it's almost impossible to turn a steak without suffering a painful burn. Refrigerators with unlighted interiors. - ; Kitchen cabinet shelves that are out of reach. Slippery or uneven floor coverings; Theye are remedies for every one of these mental hazards'in the new kitchen plans and in the equipment now on the market. For instance, the drawers in many cabinet units are mounted on ball-bearing slides. They pull put easily and are so well made that trouble from warping and sticking is reduced to the minimum.
