From freshening up decor to a down-to-the-studs remodel, all of the information you need to design the job and do the work yourself is right here. This new edition also features smart home projects, from advanced toilets and add-on bidets to freestanding tubs, dimmable lights, and touchless faucets.
Through step-by-step photography and instructions, you’ll see how to update lighting, ventilation, flooring, surfaces, cabinetry, toilets, bathtubs, and accessories. This comprehensive buyer’s guide takes you through one of the most important steps in any remodeling project, and a complete and up-to-the minute section on bathroom design provides education and inspiration.
It also includes information explaining how to remodel or re-imagine your bathroom to better meet the needs of aging in place, with projects that conform to Universal Design Standards:
- You’ll see a start-to-finish demonstration on how to replace a shower or tub with a curbless shower stall.
- To maximize access, a wall-mounted sink is hung and hooked up—and you see every step.
- Replace a traditional bathroom sink faucet with a hands-free model so you can turn on the water even if you can’t reach all the way to the faucet handle.
