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.
