I have purchased several kitchen and bath books recently looking for ideas and was half way thru this book when I realized that I was reading a book that really gave me what I needed. LOTS of examples of lovely bathrooms done by people who choose to live within the space they have. I was delighted to see "the builder standard" bathroom I'm currently living with, updated beautifully, and several remaining in the same basic footprint. I found it very affirming. Both practical and insprirational. While I might enjoy looking at all those mega bathrooms as big the entire bedroom wing of my suburban ranch, I can't fit a single fixture they showcase into MY house. (Nor did they have to waste page after page with enormous artsy close ups as I've found with several "rich and famous" decorating books.)

This is not a How-To book. Only the last 11 pages deal with the practical aspect of designing your own bath, and doesn't even touch on the technical considerations such as load bearing, heating, plumbing and & hot water that any self respecting DIY'er needs to know. That's later in the game for me. Right now I am trying to settle on the basic look and layout and this book gave me exactly what I was hoping for.

I feel pretty gypped by this book and I blame the publishers / authors for the misleading title. Yes, there are pretty pictures but for the most part, this is not a how to or solutions book for those of us trying to deal with truly small bathrooms. The most creative thing they suggest is replacing a tub with a shower, which isn't exactly a fresh idea and, if you're limited in number of bathrooms, can hurt resale value of your home. The bathrooms shown are suburban bathrooms that average 9x9, which is bigger than both the bathrooms I'm trying to remodel. Additionally, not once do they explore the European style shower / wet room, which is a small bathroom solution that I'd like to read about and is sort of bizarre to skip over. If you can get this book cheap and aren't trying to remodel a truly small bathroom, this book might be fun to own. I wish I'd scanned it in the library first. I've found more inspiration just surfing the web.

We are renovating two small bathrooms and were looking for ideas that might be suitable for our two tiny spaces. This title fit the bill. It includes plans, lots of photos, and an coupon that entitles you to a free subscription for Better Homes & Garden Magazine! This is about the only recent title we found that focuses on the small bathroom.

Horrible. Not worth it. Better Homes and Gardens idea of small makes me laugh. The writers/editors really need to get out into the world and understand small.

This item will be returned for being useless when you really need a solution to your "small" bathroom.

Very disappointing. No information about fixtures, who made them, where to buy them etc. No measurements of fixtures or how to place things in the bath. Just great photos, which is why I gave it 2 stars. If you need ideas then this might be a good book, but for specifics such as how to design, including measurements and proportions and where to place fixtures, including lighting, then this is NOT the book to buy. Nothing new about storage that hasn't been said or photographed before.

I agree with others who say that these bathrooms are NOT small. There is a section on powder rooms that are small, but otherwise, most of the bathrooms are 9X10 or bigger!!! You may get some ideas for space saving from this book, but mostly it is just average size nice bathrooms.

I have been perusing a number of bathroom remodeling books lately. Small bathrooms are very neglected. Almost everything I've seen is devoted to luxe, high-end baths for houses that have tons of space. This book really focuses in on small bathrooms. It provides numerous "case studies" of real homeowners' small bathrooms and what they did with them, many of them done on reasonable budgets. This book does not tell you how to install a floor or a tub, but it does provide many, many tips on small details that will enhance a bathroom and make it unique. I cut a lot of photos out of this book for my "wish" binder.

Case in point: I just looked at two other bathroom books and couldn't find a single idea that I could use for my own small bathroom, or even my more mid-size bathroom.

If you are looking for creative ideas for small baths, or any size bath, really, this is the book for you.
