Here are makeovers you can actually use, afford, and do yourself. Unlike some books on remodeling the bathroom, this real-world guide steers clear of wildly expensive options that demand a costly contractor to implement. Instead, eye-catching, sensible suggestions explain how to get rid of the dingy old vanity, redo that terrible lighting, and lose the stained, worn linoleum. Get down to the nitty-gritty with instructions for replacing cabinets, laying down sheet flooring, relaminating or tiling countertops and backsplashes, and putting in a new sink or faucet. Follow one of three marvelous bathroom transformations, or creatively mix elements from them all. From choosing color schemes to budgeting time, every valuable page shows how to upgrade a bathroom.

To add character and beauty to a home and still be practical, installing trim is one of the most effective and simple methods. It can conceal and seal gaps around doors, windows, floors, and ceilings while providing visual interest and shadow lines to otherwise bland items. Use it to draw attention to design elements such as a high ceiling or to serve as a transition between varied materials. Skilled trim carpenters know how to make the most of this useful form of woodwork, so things fit perfectly on walls—even ones that aren’t plumb or level—the walls most people have in reality. Luckily, anyone can learn the pros’ secrets to obtaining that elusive perfect fit, thanks to Popular Mechanics and Rick Peters. Popular Mechanics covers everything: the equipment needed and how to use it; window and door casings; baseboards; all types of molding (including the always-challenging crown molding); wainscoting; and architectural trim like gingerbread. There are even insider tips on decorative molding, including how to dress up a plain door so it looks like it has raised panels. For owners wanting to add trim to their home, this book is the most valuable tool of all!
