Our systems of home organisation have a direct bearing on the efficiency or otherwise with which we perform everyday tasks and a successfully organised home allows you to put your hands on what you need and when you need it.
Storage is an inspirational resource to help us organise every room in our home. Terence Conran demonstrates how getting organised is not a question of rigorous discipline but a means of simplifying and streamlining everyday life.
This book is divided into two principal sections, one on planning and assessment, the essential starting point for reorganisation including different types of storage available, and the other providing an area-by-area breakdown of every room's particular storage requirements and approaches, including the optimum conditions for storing different types of belongings.
More than 270 inspiring photographs provide original solutions and case studies provide in-depth coverage of specific solutions from where to store all your CDs to how to hide all the children's' toys.
