As the media signals that the worst of the recession is behind us, I know I feel a little more inclined to loosen the purse straps. One of the areas I have been more generous with my spending is in my home. Making my place the respite it is suppose to be makes coming home so much more worth while.

The bathroom is one of the most popular rooms of the house for a remodeling project. Even in a recession, bathroom remodeling remains popular because some projects simply cannot be put off until better economic times. Additionally, some homeowners are remodeling so they will be ready when the housing market turns around, since they are aware that a bathroom design can make or break a home sale in the current market. People are looking for large, well-lit bathrooms that offer both luxury and environmentally-friendly features.
Bathroom remodeling is always popular because, in almost all real estate markets, it makes a home both more comfortable and more valuable. Moreover, this workbook is the perfect introduction to the series because it incorporates all of the most often-requested features: Guidance in dealing with unique challenges, Identification of bathroom features that will be costly to change, Advice on how to save money on a remodel, Detailed guidance on how to find and choose the right contractor for the job, Everything a homeowner needs to know to make the entire remodeling process a breeze.
