Overview

Do-it-yourself home projects have become a national pastime, and nothing satisfies that urge more then creating built-ins. The fact that they are a permanent part of a house makes it more critical that they be done with as much skill and imagination as possible. That's where the New Built-Ins Idea Book comes in. Written by Sandor Nagyszalanczy, a former senior editor of Fine Woodworking magazine and an acknowledged expert in the field, this illustrated guide shows step-by-step how to create built-ins that are both practical and appealing. Here are hundreds of design ideas for projects for every room of the house, including kitchens, bathrooms, libraries, kids' spaces, dining rooms, bedrooms, and the increasingly popular media spaces. The book shows a wide range of possibilities for incorporating built-ins, from niches to bookcases to spaces that replace those stacks of clothing in the closet. Complete coverage of materials, lighting, color, and hardware, along with careful, comprehensible drawings and photographs, is included.

New Built-Ins Idea Book 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

Includes a wide variety of ideas for built-ins which are useful (and gets clutter out of the way) and stylish. The text is succinct, but describes the well-chosen photographs. The first chapter is an introduction to the planning process. As usual in a book like this, the houses/apartments shown are much more expensive than most of us can afford. Don't let that stop you! The ideas can be adopted to fit any budget. Also read any of Sarah Susanka's books on the not so big house (published by Taunton and also sold through B&N).
