The book provides an illustrative picture of the standard and style development of kitchens and bathrooms in Sweden's apartment buildings and detached houses. The design and equipment of kitchens and bathrooms follow the spirit of the times through the decades, both technically and functionally. At the same time, history bears clear traces of how the view of housework and life in the home has changed over time.
The depiction begins in the 1880s when many cities grow strongly in the wake of industrialization. There is a housing shortage and scarce economic conditions. The homes are heated with tiled stoves, the food is cooked on a wood stove and in the yard there is a privy. 120 years later, in 2000, when the story ends, a high standard in kitchens and bathrooms is a matter of course. New trends take turns and many kitchens and bathrooms are demolished and rebuilt, long before it is technically necessary.
Increased knowledge of period interiors is a valuable basis for conservation, renovation and remodeling. Inspiration can be taken from different floor plans, kitchen layouts and interiors.
