This inspirational yet practical book proves that small spaces can be both inclusive and flexible, which is perfectly in tune with the relaxed and informal way we want to live now.Part One, Making the Most of Small Spaces, discusses how design and spatial planning are the key to maximizing space as every square metre counts. Decoration and Furnishing discusses how to adopt various strategies to make your space look and feel larger, from creative use of colours and textures to lighting and furniture. The ultimate way to enhance a small space is to physically make it bigger; Branching Out discusses the ways in which this can be done, from conversions to extensions.Part Two, Area by Area Solutions presents a room by room breakdown, demonstrating space-saving ideas, storage solutions and strategies for compact layouts specific to each room. From kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms to small gardens and second homes, each chapter is full of intelligent, functional and sometimes quirky ways in which to make the most of living space. Finally, international case studies demonstrate how good design principles have been applied in real terms.
