BLACK+DECKER Complete Guide to Bathrooms brings you design advice, how-to instructions, and all the facts you need to achieve the bathroom of your dreams on your own.
This fifth edition of the perennial bestseller from the BLACK+DECKER Complete Guide series covers all the bases when it comes to bathroom remodeling. 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.
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.
This new edition of BLACK+DECKER Complete Guide to Bathrooms also includes updated 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. Add a frameless glass shower surround and learn how to install and plumb a vanity cabinet and sink basin. The list of projects is long and the information, vetted by the experts at BLACK+DECKER, is complete and current.
