A superb collection of pictures and plans prove that small really is beautiful.

Economy dictates that many of us have to live in small apartments, even one-room studios. But the lack of space, too much stuff, and our busy lives can make it stressful. This lushly illustrated resource shows that it doesn''t have to be that way. Whether it''s one person or a family with pets, a small apartment can be designed and decorated to create a comfortable environment for everyone and everything.

200 Small Apartment Ideas will inform and inspire homeowners and designers. It shows how to assess the positive and negative features of an apartment and suggests practical and manageable solutions to correct problems and eliminate irritants. It reviews each room, from entrances and corridors to bathrooms and balconies, and gives practical advice on how to fix the most common issues, such as traffic patterns, light, privacy and storage.

Color photographs show the beautiful results of careful planning and the use of multipurpose furniture and fixtures, while line drawings emphasize important points. Captions describe the variety of design features that hide the messiness of life and help to keep it hidden. These can include moveable storage walls, convertible beds, loft storage and smaller appliances.

200 Small Apartment Ideas is a practical guide that will help anyone struggling with limited space. Economic and environmental circumstances dictate that we consume less. This book proves that we can enjoy the process in comfort and with style.

Editorial Reviews

200 Small Apartment Ideas offers tips on maximizing space in even the tiniest of living quarters. From the minuscule 231.5-square-foot apartment in Warsaw that manages to squeeze in sleeping, living and bathroom quarters, thanks to a raised bed and the ingenious use of a swinging wall, to finding a comfortable way to fit a family of five into 769 square feet in Tokyo, the book offers lots of creative solutions. Many, though, require custom furniture, built-ins and space allocation. But even for those who may have a small budget, there are interesting ideas that go beyond the obvious to fully utilize both horizontal and vertical square footage, add your personality and use decorating ideas to visually enlarge the space.
