She has found it very informative and is using it with her course in interior decorating. I cannot compare to other books in this genre.

Only Contemporary Bathrooms 8 Mar 2010
By Sunny Skies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the book for you if you have an unlimited budget and want contemporary bathroom ideas. It's huge, almost 600 pages and like it's companion, "150 Best Kitchen Ideas", it has very little text. It's a photo book. There are few page numbers and pages with only photos have no page numbers at all.

A lot of the bathrooms owed their WOW factors to the phenomenal views outside the windows. Many of the bathrooms had floor to celing glass to capitalize on those views. Don't get me wrong, many of the bathrooms were unusual and cool, but it seemed the focus was more on the "LOOK" versus the WOW factor and functionality. There are lots of square tubs and sinks, chrome stainless, steel and white in these bathrooms. The unsual fixtures and features make this book worth perusing.

Even though I like a contemporary design, most of these bathrooms left me cold. I really liked the Kitchen book (which is also Contemporary), but the bathrooms in 150 Best Bathrooms did not generate a feeling of warmth. My favorites though did use color, maybe in the tile OR they used something that made me say WOW. For example, in the Surfaces section starting on page 548, great use of tile and there is even mosaic tile art of a woman with gloves - what an artisan! The best part of the book to me WAS the Surfaces chapter and the Fittings and Accessories, both at the end of the book. There is a Directory at the end of the book, but it only lists architects. No identifying information is given regarding the products or manufacturers used for the "gorgeous" tub or sink. On each of the designs it only tells the Designer's name, location of bathroom, i.e. Amsterdam, year of construction and the Photographer name. Good luck in finding any of the products if you fall in love with anything.

Overall, if you are totally into the contemporary bath, this would be a good book, but you'd have to have LOTS of money and loads of space for these luxurious baths. I would suggest checking it out of the library before purchasing.

Superb Photography! 18 Feb 2011
By Architect - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Exquisite book. As an architect, I could benefit from a "Source" list--the photos tempt my clients, but some of the product manufacturers are difficult, sometimes impossible, to track down.

Very good book 11 April 2013
By K Birdi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a must for designers working on private residential projects or service industry projects (hotels etc).

The book, like the others in this series (Apartment, Homes) is a thick compilation of properly classified collection of bathrooms. There are series of images for each project with generally floor plans and small write ups. Pictures are crisp and clear and materials and finishes can easily be picked up visually by designers if not described in the write ups.

A good and valuable buy.

Should have been called "150 International Modernist Bathrooms" 5 Jan 2014
By ERIC L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
While the table of contents claims different stylistic sections, ALL of these bathrooms are extremely modernist to the point that they are actually all very similar to each other with almost every one having glass showers, stand alone tubs, euro-style toilets and flat bottomed sinks. So, I didn't find almost any inspirations. Also, the bathrooms are not cross referenced with the index of places, websites, and products, so its useless and you have no way of knowing where a bathroom is, what products it used or which website to go to to get more information. I guess it'd be OK if you really were only interested in modernist variations only, but not good for anything else.

Beautiful but different world. 6 Aug 2013
By Meridith - Published on Amazon.com

Beautiful bathrooms for millionaire's home. ^^

Not so practical approach for the homes of the middle-class.

Good for the professional designers who want to refuel their creativity.
