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.

Create a custom-built appearance

Create a custom-built appearance with carefully selected cabinetry. The cabinets here are manufacturer produced, but with the inset door panels and incredible cove molding, they look like the work of a master craftsman. The gray color and marble vanity top are the perfect complements to the elegant and sophisticated storage features.

Save space with a console sink

Save space with a console sink. Most console sinks are modest in size, usually featuring only the sink and supporting structure. This one features the added bonus of a shelf between the legs, offering a place for towels or other small-item storage.

Match curves to curves

Match curves to curves. A tray vessel sink (below) is not unusual in today’s contemporary bathroom, but an oval version is. The shape of this lovely sink mirrors the shape of the bathtub, creating a repetition that helps guide the eye through the room’s design.

New Bathroom Floor-Plan Samples

Option A:

This floor-plan option of the draft on the opposite page shows a layout change within the existing space. The sink and vanity stay in the same place, but the tub and toilet have been switched. There is room to add a linen cabinet, but the space is still very cramped.

Option B:

This option explores expanding the room and experimenting with some interesting angles. There is now plenty of floor space for two people, plus room for a double vanity and a large linen cabinet for increased storage.

Option C:

The existing room is expanded by annexing the adjacent closet. There’s plenty of floor space, a double vanity, and a built‑in linen cabinet. This plan has the practical benefits of Option B but is less expensive to build.
