A Room-by-room guide to home interior design

More than a decorating guide, Residential Interior Design teaches the fundamental skills needed to plan interior spaces for all types of homes, in all decorative styles, from remodeling to new construction. Taking a step-by-step approach, this valuable primer reviews all aspects of interior architecture as it relates to human factors and daily use.

Authors and interior designers Maureen Mitton and Courtney Nystuen explore the minimal amount of space necessary in order for rooms to function usefully, from the kitchen to the bathroom, the bedroom to the hallway, and every room in between. Packed with hundreds of drawings and photographs, this valuable tool is brimming with useful information regarding codes, mechanical and electrical systems, the Americans with Disabilities Act, accessibility codes, special considerations for multi-family dwellings, and a variety of additional factors that impact each type of room and its corresponding space.

With a focus on quality of design over quantity of space, Residential Interior Design is the first stop to designing equally efficient and attractive rooms.

Book News Annotation:

Aimed at interior design students, this thoroughly-illustrated volume explains the minimum requirements for specific types of residential spaces and rooms. Introductory chapters provide an overview of basic requirements, such as accessibility and lighting, and discuss the role of the various types of design graphics. Subsequent chapters focus in turn on bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, leisure spaces, utility spaces, and circulation spaces. The authors teach interior and architectural design at the U. of Wisconsin-Stout. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
