PISCATAWAY, N.J. (October 10, 2013) – Just in time for the fall home improvement season, American Standard has released the How-To-Buy Guide for the Bathroom, an essential tool for homeowners trying to navigate the often overwhelming array of bathroom remodeling ideas and products.
Written by the company's Brand Education Director, Gray Uhl, the e-book covers every inch of the bathroom, from faucets to sinks to toilets to tubs. “Remodeling a bathroom is an exciting process, but there are so many choices to be made that the work can easily become stressful and confusing,” said Uhl. “This e-book can help homeowners understand their options and then choose the products that will best suit their tastes and needs.”
The How-to-Buy Guide offers general advice to help begin the remodeling process. It examines the many installation choices in each product category ― for example, undermount vs. vessel sink, high efficiency vs. standard flush toilet, single or two handle faucet ― to help readers choose the right type of product for their bathroom and their families' requirements.
All the basic elements of each type of bath product are explained so that homeowners can easily understand the different alternatives available to them. This leaves more time for the “fun” choices such as selecting colors, finishes and design styles.
Throughout the e-book, links to installation videos and other helpful resources instruct readers who are tackling DIY projects and making remodeling decisions. Links to help homeowners find local bath products showrooms are also provided.
“A more beautiful and functional bathroom is absolutely within reach, especially when a homeowner invests a bit of time and research in the planning process,” said Uhl. “The How-To-Buy Guide is the perfect way to get started.”
