Overview

This beautifully presented guide proves that when it comes to creating your perfect bathroom, the vocabulary of the debate has extended far beyond the traditional question of ‘shower or bath’.

As Vinny Lee explains, there is an increasingly diverse range of options: saunas, spa baths, body jet showers and tailored cloakroom suites, environmentally modified systems, mood lighting and state-of-the-art technology -and these are just a few of the vast array of modern fixtures and fittings featured in the book.

When you are at the planning stage, Vinny helps you decide what type of bathroom you need and where to site it. If a single, all-purpose family bathroom doesn’t meet your needs, why not have a separate wet-room, an en suite shower room, a steam enclosure or sauna?

Next comes a detailed look at the most covetable bathroom styles around, from the minimal to the highly personal ‘Me Style’ where your imagination can run riot. Whether you’re looking for something classic, rustic or absolutely dazzling with a contemporary aesthetic, Vinny’s guidance will help you turn your dream into reality.

The book also includes an insightful overview of the huge range of materials now available, from complex resins, reinforced glass, treated woods and double skin steel.

Bathrooms contains all the inspiration you could ever wish for teamed with the practical know-how you need to put you on track for a bathroom you’ll enjoy.
