Most homeowners at some time or another could use more room. From storage and shelving to entertaining, the reasons for needing more usable space are endless. Manufacturers are aware of this homeowner conundrum and have developed a number of products that help simplify life—while increasing storage.
Rid Your Home of that Clumsy Ironing Board
Who has extra room in their laundry room to store an ironing board and the iron, spray bottle, starch, etc.? The stow-away-type, drop-down ironing board offers homeowners room to iron, only when necessary. When not needed the ironing board and ironing essentials are hidden in a cabinet hung on the wall.
Say Goodbye to the Standard Dresser
Companies, such as IKEA and others, are marrying bed frames and storage. For smaller rooms, this allows for one less piece of furniture possibly, while giving the room character.
Kick that Knife Block to the Curb
Knife blocks can take up a lot of counter space real estate. By mounting magnetic strips to the wall to hold your knives, you have more room for platters and dishes when hosting your next dinner party or Sunday-morning brunch.
Ditch Your Bulky Water Heater
Traditional tank-style water heaters are bulky and can take up the entire HVAC closet, but a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater requires a fraction of space. The size of a carry-on suitcase, tankless water heaters can easily be mounted on a wall, and in some areas of North America, they can be installed on the exterior of a home.
So, what do to with all that space? You could actually use your closet for storage! Depending on the size and location of the closet within the house, you might even have space to retrofit the existing water heater closet into a half bath. Or, if your water heater is located in the garage, you could have room for a second refrigerator or freezer, additional tools or more holiday-decoration storage.
