Mike Holmes’ new book helps homeowners remodel their kitchens and bathrooms from the inside out.

Holmes, the builder known for righting construction wrongs on his HGTV shows “Holmes on Homes” and “Holmes Inspection,” brings his same do-it-right attitude to “Mike Holmes Kitchens & Bathrooms.” In the book, he preaches the importance of focusing first on the unseen parts of a renovation, the things that are under the surfaces or behind the walls.

Holmes helps his readers plan a remodel that fits their needs and is built to last. He explains the options available, advises them on hiring and working with a contractor and guides them on making the best choices. The book is sprinkled with tips and illustrated lavishly with photos to provide ideas and inspiration.

“Mike Holmes Kitchens & Bathrooms” is published by Time Home Entertainment and sells for $21.95 in softcover.
