From the Back Cover:

The one-stop handbook for "greening" the kitchen and bath

Kitchens and baths together use an average of 300 gallons of water per day for a family of four. Outside of general temperature control, kitchen appliances use the bulk of a household's energy. Kitchen & Bath Sustainable Design is the National Kitchen and Bath Association s complete guide to "greening" these important rooms, covering every consideration for both remodels and new construction. This full-color guide contains everything designers need to bring space, budget, and sustainability together to create beautiful, functional, and efficient rooms.

Case studies of award-winning projects demonstrate how attention to energy efficiency, water use, materials selection, and more reduce a project's environmental impact, and expert guidance toward greening one's practice helps designers "walk the walk" and better serve clients. With this handy guide, design professionals will be able to:

  • Communicate sustainability concepts more clearly to stakeholders
  • Translate technical "green" criteria into practical design
  • Learn where standards and codes intersect with sustainability
  • Conduct a full analysis to quantify the "greenness" of a design
  • Get up to date on the latest technology, materials, and practices

A complete technical and practical guide, Kitchen & Bath Sustainable Design brings designers up to date on the latest guidelines, technology, and best practices.
