Overview

In Right-Sizing Your Home, Gale Steves shows how to make sense of those spaces rarely used and no longer suited to the way we live today. Unlike most home design books, each chapter in this beautifully illustrated book centers on a function in the home - such as bathing, relaxing, or eating - and helps readers assess their individual style and approach to each. Steves takes them through the entire process of Right-Sizing: providing worksheets to examine the uses and requirements of space, dimension guides to illustrate different spatial arrangements within rooms, the right way to measure, how to create a floor plan, and even a clever use for old grocery bags. Additionally, there are tons of inspiring ideas, hundreds of products that can help readers Right-Size on any budget, and a comprehensive list of resources making it easy to find everything featured in the book, everything needed, to make your house fit your lifestyle.
