Just some of the ideas:
Stairs: Make the treads to flip-up lids to access the box underneath, or insert drawers underneath. Page 17
Dorway: The space over the door can be converted to a small bookshelf of antique display area. Page 56
Under/Over Kitchen Cabinets: Build a drawer into the toe-kick area under the cabinets for storage of thin things like serving dishes, or all kinds of things can be put into the space above the cabinets.
This is a great idea book of how you can probably double your storage area.
A permanent addition to our design library. If you are building or remodeling there are good ideas to be had in this book.
Not every idea will work in every home. A significant portion of the projects are storage under the eaves in an attic space, for example. However, there is enough diversity overall that I think every homeowner can find inspiration for one or more areas in their home. After years of watching HGTV, browsing home improvement magazines, following blogs, and reading books, I still found many ideas in Making Room that I'd never seen before, as well as new execution of old concepts.
My only wish was that it could have provided some sort of instruction or reference for where to find out more about getting some of the jobs done, or how it was done. Or the cost.
But that's minor in comparison to the mega benefit of the many many original ideas - especially when you thought all the ideas were already written about!
