In this sequel to the best-selling Bungalow Kitchens, Jane Powell and Linda Svendsen turn to the second most complex room in the house. While utilitarian by nature, the bathroom doesn't have to emphasize usage. As reflected in these pages, the bathroom can--and should--be a beautiful extension of the home style--and what better examples than those from the Arts & Crafts era.
Though it may seem a self-evident feature of the Arts & Crafts style, bungalow bathrooms are truly artistic endeavors. They go beyond the traditional pedestal sink and claw-foot tub to some of the most beautiful tile work, woodwork, fixtures, and decorative elements available.
Bungalow Bathrooms is a guide to restoring or designing a period-style bathroom for a bungalow or other nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century house. It provides a wealth of information about flooring, cabinets, countertops, fixtures, faucets, and all other elements that make up a bungalow bathroom, as well as advice on how to integrate modern technology while maintaining the bungalow look.
