Amy Mathews, the host of DIY network’s Bathroom Renovations, takes the intimidation out of restoration. Using projects adapted from the series, she provides a superbly organized, informative introduction that assesses the space and layout possibilities; reviews the range of styles and prices for cabinets, countertops, sinks, faucets, showers, tubs, fittings, walls, and floors; and covers design elements such as lighting, storage, and ventilation. Concise, illustrated instructions (peppered with lots of encouragement) provide the fundamental nuts and bolts of renovation techniques, from removing tubs and installing toilets to laying tile and restoring windows. Ten complete redos come with before, during, and after photography, and offer homeowners their choice of styles, time investment, and budget options.  There’s something to appeal to every taste and need.

Amy Mathews honed her do-it-yourself skills with The Family Handyman magazine, where she did everything from outdoor repairs and projects to new product demonstrations. She currently hosts Bathroom Renovations on DIY Network, a show that covers everything from simple updates to luxurious dream spas.” Everything involved in a bathroom makeover, from plumbing to counters, is tackled with style.

From Publishers Weekly:

This eye-catching, photo-packed companion to the DIY Network's "Bathroom Renovations" television show works better as an idea book than as a how-to guide. Writer and TV show host Matthews offers a wealth of tips on topics like unifying bathroom styles and choosing the right material for countertops, but when it comes to doing the actual work, information is lacking. Whether it's replacing a pedestal sink or pouring a new concrete floor, few of the projects garner more than a two-page spread of instructions. In some cases, vital steps for a particular task-such as adding spacers to ensure even grout lines while tiling-are skipped in one project but appear in another, similar project. To make matters worse, the book's brief index offers little in the way of help if you're stuck. Perhaps the best advice is her frequent admonishment to call a professional if you're intimidated by a project's scope or are unable to do the work yourself. The how-to aspect works better in small projects such as hanging wallpaper or installing a shower door, and it doesn't hurt to have a general overview of a particular task even if you're not doing it yourself. Those looking for an in-depth, step-by-step guide, however, will probably end up frustrated.
