4.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas, but needs updating., 2 April 2008

This is an excellent book with some unique ideas. The sections on how to zone open plan living spaces and clever ideas to locate storage are useful to everyone, no matter the size of your home. Some of the ideas, especially in the kitchen section, are now making there way in to mainstream kitchen design so are not as revolutionary as they would have been when the book was written.

My main criticism of the book, and the reason it gets four starts, is it desperately needs updating. Although the ideas are just as relevant today the photographs of dingy 80's interiors and references to storing 'walkmans' and 'cassette tapes' make the book feel dated.

Azby's other book 'The very small home' looks at interiors more than actual storage ideas but is much more up to date and features the kind of interiors we would expect in a modern book and makes an excellent companion to this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas for creative use of precious space, 2 Dec 2012

I was surprised at how good this book was. It highlights some incredibly good ways to be creative and to manipulate the spaces in your home. Most homes being built in the UK today are in effect square boxes built with littlel imagination and very often absolutely no thought at all given to storage. very inspriational and a must have book if you are feeling claustrophobic in your home or are about to leave home for the first time and want to make the best use of your limited budget and small flat.
