It presents concepts for reorganizing interiors to make them more livable, reclaiming space from other rooms, bringing light into dark areas, and creating small additions that dramatically and economically increase living space.
The advice covers renovations to kitchens, basements, bathrooms, bedrooms and home offices, as well as exterior renovations that respect the character of both the house and the neighborhood. Well organized for easy reference, it includes before-and-after floor plans and hundreds of detailed photographs.
