From the publisher of the bestselling Idea Books comes a new design sourcebook series that moves beyond inspiration and provides the essential information homeowners need to make smart choices for remodeling.
Today's bathroom is more than just the most practical room in the house. It can be a place to retreat and relax, a place to multitask, and a place to show off. Add to that the fact that the return on investment for a bathroom remodel can be as high as 90% and it's no wonder homeowners are indulging themselves in the latest styles and designs to create the ultimate bathroom.
In Bathroom Ideas that Work, Scott Gibson provides design advice for bathrooms and budgets from small to large, from powder rooms to kids' bathroom to adult retreat. Throughout the book he provides design options for all components found in each of these types of bathrooms as well as how to successfully combine those components to create a great room. A wide range of styles, materials, and layouts are featured in hundreds of photos that provide fresh ideas for everything from the floor material to the wall color, lighting to heating, and fixtures to window treatments.
