Most homeowners long for more space as well as space that better fits their needs. But building an addition is expensive, time-consuming, and disruptive to the household. What homeowners don't realize is that just about every house has room to spare, much of it unrecognized. Making Room showcases creative ideas for areas that are underused or taken for granted--a broom closet, an empty wall, window bays, and corner nooks.
Making Room focuses entirely on creating new spaces within the existing footprint of the home, and explores commonly overlooked spaces and scores of clever ideas for putting those spaces to use. More than 100 creative ideas highlight transformations that are small in scale but big in impact, such as a bathroom closest converted to a shower, drawers incorporated into a staircase, a bookcase built into the base of a staircase, and a computer niche tucked into a hallway. Making Room also provides practical design advice that inspires homeowners to adapt the ideas to any room in their home.

Book is OK, but somewhat dated presentation and decorating styles. Most of the ideas are illustrated more attractively in other library holdings, although there are a few treasures.
