Can I just tell you how much I love this book? We got a chance to review it after it released, and I have often returned to it for inspiration and ideas. Lately I have been thinking a lot about it because we live in a home that is somewhat small, and like a lot of people, we have a lot of stuff filling up our small space.
I'm a huge clutter buster, but even with paring down to just the things we love and use, we still have things that need to be stored. I would say that storage, or lack thereof, is really more of an issue than actual square footage in our home.
This is why I enjoy the book. Gale is awesome at laying out inventive ways to maximize space, and she also has a great approach to making sure that you get your goals right in the way you want to use your spaces. No sense making a room look and function well if it doesn't actually suit the way your family uses it.
Right now I am working on our master bedroom closet. I want to maximize the space, and make sure that we can use it in the best way possible. We need to store things other than clothing (extra blankets for winter, and even some bathroom extras like TP and such). I've appreciated taking some of the ideas from this book and putting them to use in my mind as I plot and plan for our closet.
What project are you working on right now?
