The Bathroom Idea Book by Andrew Wormer. The bathroom is a quiet, comfortable, private place within the home, so it’s no surprise that modern Americans, stressed out from demanding jobs and a hectic pace, spend more time in their bathrooms than ever. Which means that it’s also no surprise that Americans are putting more thought into bathroom design and construction and spending more money on their bathrooms than ever. Like its companion, The Kitchen Idea Book (Taunton, 1999), The Bathroom Idea Book is filled with real ideas for real people and will appeal to a broad range of styles, tastes, and budgets. It offers practical and useful advice on all aspects of remodeling and design, including fixtures, lighting, flooring, ventilation, finishes, and counter materials.
