Intro MY TWO TEENAGED SONS DIDN'T BELIEVE ME when I told them their Grandma (a spry 71-year-old who has been known to outlast them at certain games) grew up in a rural farmhouse without indoor plumbing. In her generation, she has seen the bathroom come in from the backyard to taking up three or four or more spots on a modern home's floor plan.
Bathrooms have not only come in from the cold, they have gone way past the utilitarian spaces of a few decades ago to being one of the most remodeled spaces in the home. These days, we value the bath as a personal, pampering space. For some of you busy homeowners, it's the only quiet time in the day! It's also a room that has a direct ability to affect the resale of our homes.
Though they are often the smallest spaces in the home, bathrooms garner enormous attention. Designing a bath can be daunting process thanks to the technical nature of plumbing--and to the sheer number of choices available to the shopper.
Enter the All New Bathroom Idea Book. This volume breaks down the process of designing a bathroom into a logical sequence, from planning the space, to selecting a style the family can live with and love, to exploring all the latest options in materials and fixtures. Detailed captions and multiple sidebars will guide you to the information so you can realize the new bathroom of your dreams. All the elements of today's bath are explored, from basic faucets to Zen shower stalls.
Best of all, hundreds of images of inspiring new bathroom designs will allow you to tour the best baths we found around the country, gathering innovative and well-designed ideas as you go. You can use these spectacular photos to 'shop' for decorating ideas you'll love, and to find creative and practical solutions for your own space. Or use the book to communicate with your carpenter, contractor or design team, relying on the old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words.
In your hands is a virtual designer's notebook of ideas, inspiration, and information. This volume is a wonderful first step in turning a dream bath into a real one, whether it's new construction or a remodel, a tiny attic bath or a luxurious master suite. It's all here for you.
Well, except the new eco-outhouse concept. I'm not sure Grandma is ready for that one yet.--Sandra S. Soria
