Those who live in small houses and tiny apartments will welcome this treasury of ideas for using limited space elegantly and efficiently. The suggestions are ingenious and stylish, from commercially available solutions, such as folding chairs and tables, roll-away storage bins, and under-the-bed chests of drawers, to inexpensive built-ins, such as fold-away kitchen work surfaces, mini sleeping lofts, and under-the-stairs shelving. Along with ways to create more physical space, there are fascinating ideas for creating the illusion of space, making small areas look larger with the use of color, reflection, light, and trompe l’oeil effects. Small can be beautiful. It can also be convenient and livable, with the ideas and inspiration in this handsomely illustrated guide.
