Ladders Within: Homes for Climbers

Do you ever look at your staircase and just think it’s taking up way too much space? Who do they think they are? Didn’t their mothers tell them it’s rude to stair? In this world of maximizing the minimal space your home, it’s time bring back the ladder - one step at a time. Prop it old-school to create childhood nostalgia of climbing into a tree-house, or if you’re the superstitious type, pin it flat to the wall and climb like a firefighter. Elegant and light, they can change a regular room to a jungle gym of hidden alcoves, balconies and mezzanines. This guide shows the ladders to successful conversions for children’s rooms, family rooms, storage, and purely for the sake of the style.
