A Practical Human–First Approach to the Design of Interior Spaces

Residential Interior Design is the premier reference for the design of interior spaces, placing the human–space interaction foremost in the planning and design process. Step–by–step, authors Maureen Mitton and Courtney Nystuen review all aspects of interior architecture as it relates to human factors and daily use to teach the fundamental skills required to design a beautiful, functional, livable space. Hundreds of drawings and photographs illustrate important concepts, and clear guidance on room–by–room requirements, building systems, codes, accessibility, and other considerations provide essential reference for the factors that impact each individual project.

This new third edition features:

  • Fully updated building codes including the International Residential Code and the International Green Construction Code
  • The latest information on sustainability and accessibility issues
  • A new chapter on remodeling, including zoning, planning, design options, budgeting, and more
  • Access to interactive learning resources and additional teaching supplements

Designing a space to be lived in every day involves much more than paint chips and fabric swatches. Residential Interior Design covers all aspects of residential interior design to help designers turn structures into "homes."
