RIAI Bookshop: ‘ROOMS - Create the Home You Want For Your Life’ by Declan O’Donnell

Published: Thursday, April 14, 2016

Take the first step to creating the home of your dreams…

We all love our homes but sometimes they can frustrate us. With underused rooms, cluttered sitting rooms, neglected hallways, impractical kitchens and lack of storage, the list of things we’d like to change can be endless.

In Rooms, award-winning architect Declan O’Donnell shows us how we can release our inner designer to create a home that works for the way we live.

From open plan living, to cleverly-designed kitchens, home offices, extensions, attic conversions and clever storage ideas, Rooms takes us through each room in the house and, looking at common problems and the fundamental decisions in any project, big or small, helps us to channel our inner creativity to create the living space we’ve always wanted and make changes to our home - to live better.
