A revised, combined edition of two highly praised titles from the National Kitchen and Bathroom Association, this fully illustrated work brings building professionals everything they need to apply universal design to kitchens and bathrooms.
Supplanting the NKBA's separate bathroom and kitchen paperback titles, this newly edited, updated, and more affordable version meets the growing demand for practical information on design that suits all users throughout their lifecycle. Spurred by an affluent, aging baby boomer population -- a major segment of the market for the 15 million kitchen and bath projects undertaken annually -- this demand for design that suits people of all ages and disabilities is mushrooming.
Providing all the tools architects, builders, and interior designers need to meet this demand, this book features:
-- Valuable design checklists and client surveys
-- Product evaluation guides
-- Clear, measured graphic design standards
-- Thoroughly tested design guidelines
-- Case studies with photographs of installations and product specifications
-- More than 800 illustrations
-- Comprehensive listings of codes, laws, regulations, product sources, and other resources
For design and building professionals, or even for do-it-yourselfers, this is the ultimate guide to creating bathrooms and kitchens that are universally accessible -- and beautiful.
