Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Both of these gorgeous books are updates of 2005 editions. Each starts out with layout and design considerations for the space of your bath or kitchen. Style sections look at design elements and colors. Design Ideas for Bathrooms then delves into surface treatments, covering tiling in some detail. Next come toilets and tubs or showers and all the selections. Design Ideas for Kitchens, likewise, covers cabinetry in depth and then appliances and sinks. Mostly, these are idea books with lots of eye candy to inspire creative juices.
Library Journal
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.

    great for inspiration

    One of the best books that I have seen for bath remodeling inspiration.
    You can certainly use any idea, in this book, as a jumping off point for your own remodel. Sources included are helpful, as well.
