Designing for a space that is very tall and narrow can be a challenge. The professional designers at Closet Works are experts at maximizing storage space for difficult areas like this while retaining accessibility for the customer.
This custom closet design includes a rolling ladder to reach the higher shelves. The ladder glides easily and silently across the floor, never in the way, but available when needed. The ladder slides on the same principle as barn doors, and the tried and true harware is similar to that used by farmers for many years. The greatest advantage of having a rolling ladder is that they are a great space saving idea and a perfect solution for small living spaces. Rolling ladders do not take any valuable floor space and you can always tuck it away when not using it.
All the items used frequently, like clothing, are kept on the lower portion of the system using rods and a bank of shelves — they can be grabbed quickly and easily when you're in a hurry. The upper shelves are perfect for the homeowners reference library. They are also a very good solution to storing seasonal items. The countertop above the shelves functions similar to a traditional chest of drawers and is great for showcasing photos and memorabilia.
