The Bathroom, the Kitchen, and the Aesthetics of Waste (Village Voice Literary Supplement)
The Bathroom, the Kitchen, and the Aesthetics of Waste (Village Voice Literary Supplement)
Between 1890 and 1940, America's culture of consumption took its modern form: products were mass-produced, mass-distributed, and designed to be rapidly replaced by the buying public. The same period also saw the rise of the modern bathroom and kitchen as newly equipped spaces for administering bodily care The streamlined style of modern design, which served the new ideals of hygiene and the manufacturing policy of planned obsolescence, emanated from the domestic landscape of the bathroom and kitchen. The Bathroom, the Kitchen analyzes these developments with text and historical photographs, drawings, sketches, advertisements, and catalog pages.

Where once we dwelt in soft and furry interiors, surrounded by carpets, cloth coverings, and other dust-prone, hard-to-clean surfaces, we now spend much of our time in tiled rooms surrounded by smooth-skinned appliances. The story of how the modern bathroom and kitchen came to be is told in The Bathroom, the Kitchen, and the Aesthetics of Waste. It was in these two rooms that the greatest transformation in home engineering occurred. A process for bringing clean water in and removing waste water transformed the home into a quasi-organic being, eating and excreting through an alimentary system whose inherent cleanliness influenced the design of the rooms where it was housed. Ellen Lupton and J. Abbot Miller present the history of this change in words and historical images in this attractive and surprisingly informative volume.

Bathroom Reno - Before and After
Bathroom Reno - Before and After
Our half-bath renovation in our 1960s-era raised bungalow. The "before" picture shows the room when we moved in 3+ years ago, with the previous owners' decoration. What you don't see in this photo is the badly water damaged flooring. The condensation from the toilet had rotted away the sub-floor, and then, recently, the surface parquet started to sag without the support. When our toilet was leaning at an odd angle, we figured there might be a problem underneath. The "after" photo shows the room after two weekends of work. We tore out the built-in vanity, pulled up the toilet, tore out the flooring and sub-floor right down to the concrete. Built in the sub-floor, replaced and painted the trim, painted the walls, stained and installed new baseboards and wainscoting cap, finished the wainscoting around the room (it was 2/3 done before, because it ended at the old built-in vanity), laid new, gorgeous flooring, and installed the new vanity. NOTE: Hooking up the plumbing was WAY harder than anyone had anticipated. IKEA faucets are designed for Europe, and require a TON of fiddling and jerry-rigging to work with standard N.A. hook-ups. We're pretty happy with how it turned out!
