Design Ideas for Bathrooms, 2nd Edition (Creative Homeowner) (Home Decorating)
Design Ideas for Bathrooms presents the latest ideas for building or remodeling a bathroom. It contains almost 500 color photographs that show homeowners the latest styles of tubs and showers, sink, faucets, vanities, tile, stone, glass, and more.
Hillstrom (former editor in chief, House Beautiful Special Interest Publications) presents a huge amount of practical information on redesigning bathrooms and kitchens, the two rooms that can be the most costly to remodel. Bathrooms covers universal design considerations and the basics of master bath and half-bath layout, then focuses on bath and shower options that include tubs and fittings. Extensive information on surfaces like tile, stone, glass, concrete, synthetics, wood, and metal points to the advantages and disadvantages of each. Kitchens offers a similar wealth of information, on cabinets, surfaces, and major appliances such as cooktops, stoves, and refrigerators. A few projects, like refinishing a hardwood floor, suggest that other sources should be consulted before beginning, since so few instructions are given. Kitchens is similar to Susan Preen's Creating Your Dream Kitchen (see review, p. 62), with more photographs and choices provided here. Both books would make excellent purchases for public libraries.
