Kitchens and Bathrooms have a more historical bent than the first four bungalow books, primarily because these two rooms are so closely associated with their equipment and amenities (think sinks, toilets, stoves, and refrigerators), which have changed dramatically over the years. In both books, author Paul Duchscherer sets the stage for Doug Keister's stunning photographs by discussing technological and social developments of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that had a huge impact on daily life in middle-class households. Rare archival images from such sources as Gustav Stickley's magazine, The Craftsman, and old Sears & Roebuck catalogs of "kit houses" illustrate the changing face of the American bathroom and kitchen--as do the images of carefully preserved or renovated bungalow interiors with many of their original fixtures and appliances intact.

Complementing the historical emphasis of both books is their focus on the challenges of updating a bungalow kitchen or bathroom while preserving its authentic period flavor. Numerous photographs of tastefully remodeled and newly constructed homes offer ideas for readers planning to remodel and luscious eye candy for anyone who appreciates the enduring appeal of Arts and Crafts design.
