When the housing market takes a dip, fewer of us move as we just can’t afford it. That’s the time to take a long hard look at your home and work out how to make the most of every room – even every corner. Perhaps you’re trying to carve out more space to accommodate a growing family, or maybe you’re wondering where you can squeeze in a home office, a utility room or a kids’ playroom. Whatever your particular needs, in How We Live Now Rebecca Winward explores ways to make your home work harder for you.
She explores open-plan living, opting for more flexible room configurations, and using pockets of ‘dead space’ – under the stairs, on the landing or in the garden – that have unrecognised potential. Multi-tasking furniture and smart storage both have their role to play, as does versatile lighting. Streamline everyday life with How We Live Now.
