When kids hit the teenage years, a whole new challenge awaits in the life of the family home. Armed with "Teen Zone", both parents and teenagers will find plenty of cool, creative solutions. Photographed in real family homes, it proves that living with teenagers can be harmonious and enjoyable for the whole family. The book focuses first on bedrooms, with ideas for boudoirs for girls, crash pads for boys, and shared spaces for sociable kids. Chapters follow on washrooms, dens and media rooms, and family living spaces, plus a chapter on extending into the loft or basement. And for those school leavers who never quite flee the nest, there's even a section on self-contained living.
