Many designers and decorators will tell you the rules are meant to be broken. But some rules shouldn’t be broken.
Standards have been developed based on building codes, industry standards in fabricating furniture and fixtures, ergonomics, ADA requirements, etc. Breaking away from these standards can be done but you are going to pay a high cost to do so because you are going to be customizing everything.
So what are the rules that you shouldn’t break? This book is a compilation of standard measurements & guidelines used by the building and design industries.
With pages for notes in each chapter, you can record your own measurements, colors, and more. Take this book (and a tape measure) with you on your next shopping trip and you’ll never again have to ask “will this fit?”
Each book is pocket-sized to take with you and comes with a free 16′ tape measure. Please allow 7-10 days for shipping as each book is ordered from the publisher at time of order to reduce inventory costs.
If you would like your book autographed, please email us with the name of the person(s) you would like it autographed to.
