I had high hopes for this book. With two bathroom remodels in my future, I expected/hoped to find info. and ideas that I wasn't already aware of through other sources.

To be honest, I found it about as useful as walking through my local home improvement center, or taking a home tour. Pretty pictures (great for dreaming of that mansion you might live in one day), a small section on products available, nothing more, nothing less.

I was also hoping for a book that offered at least a few ideas for smaller baths. Not all of us want a spa in our home, nor do we want or have a bathroom that fits an entire family. Some of us live in older homes with no room to 'borrow' from, and no way to expand the room we have.

When I saw the picture on page 14 for the 'compact master bath', not only did I laugh, but I thought, these people have no idea what compact is!

And they don't, as is evident by the rest of the book.

There is nothing in this book that isn't already covered in the other bathroom books I've seen (and with more detail). I expected more from Taunton Press.

If you have lots of room to expand, or already have a large bathroom and want ideas of the high end ways you can update, go for it.

If you live in the real world and need ideas for real bathrooms, save yourself the money and check this book out of your local library if you think you might be interested.

If you have a small bath that you need/want ideas for, look elsewhere, like perhaps an IKEA catalog.

As with "Bathroom Ideas That Work" the "Bathroom idea books is very (very) short on ideas, simplicity, and design; however, it is very long on the "grand bathroom photographs". Both books are great if you want to look at photographs of bathrooms in the"Baroque style".

We're redoing a bathroom and saw this book at a home improvement store being used as a reference book. If you're looking for ideas, it has a lot of nice pictures that may give you some inspiration. It's interesting to see some of the novel ways people have used spaces and materials to create some great bathrooms. We got a few good ideas we're using for our bathroom. If you are looking for a how to or instruction manual, this is not your book. But it you just need to get some ideas on the possibilities, there are a lot of great ideas here!
