Cramped apartment? Small rooms in a house? You can make the most of your space! With imagination, careful planning, and this treasure trove of stylish ideas, even the tiniest apartments will look fantastic and seem ever so much more spacious. Work out a decorating scheme that tricks the eye into thinking each room is bigger; find new ways to store and organize belongings; make smallscale alterations and extensions; and try supercompact versions of necessary furnishings. An astounding array of color photos and illustrations leads you, room by room, into dozens of homes to view the clever and beautiful ways people have solved space problems, such as fitting a bay window with boX seating that doubles as extra storage or installing a bathroom in an attic. Turn a hallway into anything from a picture gallery to a tiny kitchen. Twenty simple but ingenious designs for customized furniture and accessories enable even those with minimal carpentry skills to work decorating wonders in the most cramped interiors.
