Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Storage isn't the sexiest subject, but almost everyone has at least one closet, shelf or drawer that's either overstuffed, underused or in desperate need of some reorganization. This volume, the latest in the Taunton Idea Book series, is based on the premise that "storage is essential to living comfortably," and, in a genuinely practical fashion, Bouknight provides tips on making the most of under-utilized areas such as the space behind the staircase or under a dormer window. A chapter on bathrooms outlines where to stash the magazines or the extra towels, and the kitchen chapter even suggests ideas for screening the fire extinguisher. Photographs and architectural diagrams provide do-it-yourselfers a sense of how the perfectly organized hallway or bedroom might look, while giving attractive and common sense decorating ideas. For those tired of clutter-and who isn't?-this book will provide both advice and inspiration. (Oct.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
