Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This book focuses on maximizing space in a small house. Beginning with an overview of coping with space and deciding on decorating style, the text goes on to "show how to use the elements of home decorating, remodeling and building to make the space feel right for you." Each chapter examines actual homes, most under 2000 square feet, to illustrate the suggestions. Numerous color photographs show how the inhabitants deal with space restrictions, whether through clever furniture and storage arrangements or by remodeling or room additions, with helpful before-and-after floor plans. Similar in its approach to Real Life Decorating (LJ 9/15/00), this book would be an excellent addition to any size public library. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
