Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688167500, Hardcover)

Of all the rooms in the house, it is the bathroom, along with the kitchen, that is the most likely candidate for renovation. Following the success of House Beautiful Kitchens, here is a book that will inspire readers with an amazing variety of exciting possibilities. House Beautiful Bathrooms covers a wide spectrum of styles and tastes, materials and fixtures, from Early American to Modern Minimalist, from old-fashioned claw-foot tubs to sleek granite-topped counters. While emphasizing luxury and offering a glimpse of "fantasy" or "dream" bathrooms, House Beautiful Bathrooms also offers plenty of practical, realistic solutions, demonstrating how to achieve balance between luxury and utility. It depicts many different types of bathrooms, including master baths, spas, whirlpools, hot tubs, and outdoor showers. It features clever and ingenious solutions for making the most of limited space and/or highlighting a particular fixture -- a wall sconce with a harlequin lampshade, a mobile suspended over the tub, colorful mosaics, different combinations of tiles and wallpapers, seating and storage options -- to transform even the most ordinary bathroom into a designer showcase.

House Beautiful Bathrooms indulges super-luxury fantasies such as an octagonal bath surrounded by rich paneled eaves in matching wood; a towering, sky-lit shower with inset windows; French doors opening directly onto a terrace from a large bath/sitting room; and a fabulous copper bathtub. It also presents decorating and design extras such as art display, chairs for a sitting area, television and/or radio placement, and adjoining dressing rooms, and offers valuable information on state-of-the-art fixtures, luxurious towels, and gorgeous tile. Here is a book to indulge in and enjoy.
