Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
".. an excellent bookto start with to look for style ideas.... this book also focuses more on lighting than the others do."Daily Pilot2-20-2011
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.
