Idea Wise: Bathrooms : Today's bathroom is more than a functional, utilitarian space - it is also a sanctuary and private retreat. The bathroom receives more remodeling dollars than any other room in the house (except the kitchen). Today's bathroom is a center for both physical and mental relaxation, and IdeaWise: Bathrooms will show you how to get the most personal satisfaction from this all-important room. There are also good economic reasons for remodeling or adding a bathroom - a major bathroom project returns virtually its entire investment by adding value to your home. The book opens with an introductory planning and design chapter, then moves into detailed chapters discussing the elements that make up a bathroom: floor, wall and ceiling surfaces; tubs and fixtures; storage; heating, lighting and ventilation systems; and furnishings. Written specifically for do-it-yourselfers, the book features large idea photos presented in case-study fashion. You'll learn all the background information needed to plan a DIY approach to each idea. In addition to these inspirational photos and the practical case study text, the book is filled with side bars, charts, and DIY tips that make it vital for any bathroom renovation.
