Something about using vertical space has suddenly become attractive to me. I'm not sure why. Yet its lure is virtually irresistible.
The idea first came to me trying to solve the dilemma of having enough space to house my art in process and my files. Having recently downsized my living space and then having someone else move into my space, where was this stuff to go? I'm all for clearing out the no-longer-useful stuff but what if you still are using it? Where can I keep it without having boxes everywhere?
Go into another dimension?
Hell, Yes!! Something on googleimages caught my eye while looking for an item entirely unrelated to furniture. I saw an ad for IKEA about space saving in a NY apartment. They were using vertical space. Perfect!
Having the general solution, does not always translate into the specific remedy immediately however. This takes some thought. I could raise my queen sized bed. But how high? And how do I build it when I'm sleeping in it each night? Simple enough solutions, I guess.
I have bookcases on the one side of the bed. What if I turned them sideways? Then I would simply have to figure out how to support the rest of the bed.
Still puzzling it out, so stay tuned.
Amazing links though on how people are solving space problems in their smaller (more eco-friendly) yet beautiful and functional spaces. Check them out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wBnMVwsFS8
