As others have said, Googleing is your friend; as is a decent Book on electrickery: the IEE On-Site Guide is authoritative. Note there's *no* requirement to bond in a kitchen: you can if you like, but it doesn't make things unambiguously safer in all cases.

There is no need to supplementary bond a kitchen.
As for the bathroom, do you have/propose to use plastic pipes? If so, this can often reduce the required bonding to nothing, provided there are no electrical appliances. (Radiators and metal baths/taps not a problem). Obviously, plastic looks bad, so you'd need concealed pipework.
