"First, you must determine who will use the bathroom," says NKBA director of Societies, John Spitz, CBD, CKD.

...
"Traditionally, all fixtures in the bathroom are placed in one open space," says Spitz.
...
"Small children always pose unique concerns in the home," Spitz says. "They require more safety features and lower heights, but also adaptable features that allow for a child's growth."
Some features which should be included for children are safety latches on drawers and cabinets; door locks which can be opened from outside the space; above-floor storage for cleaning supplies; shower valves which balance water pressure and temperature; a pull-out step under the vanity; and adjustable pole-mounted showerheads or hand-held showerheads.
"Many of the safety features listed for a child's bath can and should be included in all bathrooms," says Spitz.
The Master Bath Suite
When planning a bathroom for adults only, or a master bath suite, it is important to note the reasons for the space - privacy, relaxation and efficiency.
"When space is limited, but you want a large private bathroom, the master bath suite is the answer," Spitz adds. "By `stealing' space from the bedroom, the master bathroom can be enlarged, creating a private retreat."
Adult baths may also incorporate added amenities, such as whirlpool tubs, saunas, and bidets, which increase the level of relaxation and luxury. For those who dream of a more efficient place to dress and groom, Spitz suggests improving the storage and closet area.
"Adequate cabinets are a must in the adult bath," says Spitz.
...
"Obviously, this type of bathroom requires less space than a full bath; however, comfort is still important and should not be overlooked," Spitz adds.

Attendance at the NKBA-sponsored National Kitchen & Bath Conference (NKBC) had not been released as of press time, but was up from past years, according to NKBA director of professional programs John Spitz, CBD, CKD, NCDIQ.

Among the highlights of the NKBC, NKBA officials said, was the keynote address, delivered by Kitchen & Bath Design News publisher Eliot Sefrin.
Sefrin, whose speech drew a standing-room-only audience of more than 400 attendees, said the 2000 K/BIS and NKBC "coincided with what has unquestionably emerged as an extraordinary period of prosperity, excitement and growth for both the kitchen and bath industry and the NKBA."
He encouraged independent kitchen and bath dealers to stay in close touch with a robust, but rapidly changing and highly competitive industry that is compelling small businesses to quickly embrace new technologies, understand emerging forms of competition, and respond to the needs of a diverse, new breed of kitchen and bath consumer.
