Practical Ideas for Small Spaces
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
As space becomes a scarcer and scarcer commodity, so living spaces decrease in size - comfortable flats become bijou apartments, previously unused or 'free' space is overwhelmed by necessity - particularly in towns and cities. The occupants of these spaces, though, still need to stretch out, to avert that mix of claustrophobia and anomie that can result from cramped conditions. The aim of "Practical Ideas for Small Spaces" is to provide readers with practical and manageable ideas for adapting their homes to the different needs and paces of their lives. A host of images illustrate the ideas and offer practical advice, from the use of colour, light and furniture to the organisation of storage space. These factors and more go together to make the most of all corners of the house or flat, demonstrating inventive and successful strategies to make small beautiful.This book is the third in a series.
