Bathrooms and Sanitation provides comprehensive information on the basic principles of contemporary sanitary planning, as well as detailed solutions for state of the art execution and fitting. A selection of successfully completed projects offers readers inspiration for their own work. Customised bathrooms are a basic requirement these days for every house, apartment and hotel room. In addition to personal hygiene, bathrooms also have an important function at the emotional level when it comes to taking time out, indulging and relaxing. The public sector can also benefit from appealing and hygienic sanitary areas. Planners are increasingly required to deal with customer desires and offer personalised solutions, in addition to knowing about the technical requirements and movement areas of sanitary facilities. Besides producing well designed floor plans, experts need to take into account sustainability and accessibility, as well as materials, light, colour, fixtures and fittings.
