The Kidspace Idea Book
Creative playrooms, clever storage ideas,
retreats for teens, toddler-friendly bedrooms
Need help planning your child's room? Look inside for help and inspiration. From lofts, playhouses, secret hideaways, high-tech homework centers, and colorful bathrooms to the backyard world of forts, tree houses, clubhouses, and playhouses, The Kidspace Idea Book brings you the best design ideas for creating great kids' spaces. Using this book to create your own kids' spaces is almost as much fun as being a kid again -- but without the homework.
Like a much-needed new pair of shoes for a kid who's outgrown the old ones, The Kidspace Idea Book fits the American family quite comfortably. It's filled with fresh, practical design ideas for creating family spaces that function for both kids and adults.
Through photos and plans, each section of the book covers a different area of the house and then moves outside -- from bedroom to playroom, kitchen to tree house. Detail photos zoom in on ideas for storage and design that help make kids' rooms look better and work harder. Quick-read sidebars list tips on such topics as storage options, materials, design, planning, layout, and lighting.
"A stylish and valuable manual... written to provide ideas that work and results that are magic. The focus of practical approaches, especially on the child's own room, will be important for all families, reduce stress, and expand creative living."
-- Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D. (Dr. Toy) Director, Institute for Childhood Resources, and author of several books on raising children.
"Anyone who has kids and is trying to make their home more suitable for them has no need to look any further. The Kidspace Idea Book offers hundreds of creative ideas. What we particularly like is the sensitivity demonstrated to provide ideas both workable for parents and desirable for kids."
-- Dana Blackwell KidFacts Research, a marketing research and consulting firm specializing in children's issues
