About this title


Collins Family Home is about creating a home that will suit the whole family. Whether you have just moved into a new home and are starting from scratch or if you want easy solutions for a particular problem area, this book has plenty of ideas for every room. Many interior books offer style over content -- Collins Family Home offers both -- a wealth of decorating ideas combined with hundreds of down-to-earth practical ideas that will make your home stylish, safe and versatile. Collins Family Home starts by looking at planning to help you make the most of your space. The next chapter covers basic design and decorating techniques that can be used throughout the home. The remaining chapters are divided into rooms and each is packed with ideas for decorating schemes and practical ideas to suit the function of each room. Every chapter is packed with inspirational colour photographs taken in a range of family homes, handy tips and simple step-by-step projects. For example, the Working from Home chapter features planning, furniture and storage, lighting and decorating ideas and also looks at ways of making an office area within another room to making an office that doubles as a guest room. The chapter on Children's Rooms looks at rooms for children of all ages, and how to adapt them as a child grows older. The handy hints throughout deal with issues relating to the particular room, such as safety, spills, repairs, advice on products and equipment and also decorating alternatives.
