I checked out some books from the library before we tore anything up just to get some ideas of what we wanted everything to look like. Sometimes that's just the impetus to get you going...just look at pictures, make note of things you like and, more importantly, things you don't like.

Bathrooms: the Smart Approach to Design by Robitz
Kitchens: the Smart Approach to Design by Robitz
