Do you have a feeling that your home is lacking something? Sometimes, you want a new kitchen device, but space does not allow you to install one more food processor or any other device. A new TV-set would be also suitable if not the size of those devices that you like. And your old desk makes you feel so miserable at the end of every working day, moreover, you work from home so frequently.
If you feel so, it is time to check the ideas which you can implement with some assistance and items provided by ProgressiveDesk Company.
1. Automate Your Desk or Get a New Height-Adjustable Item
We would recommend starting with the thing that is the most needed – your desk. If you work from home constantly or sometimes, a desk influences your health and the efficiency of your work. Let`s agree that if you feel constant pains in your back and neck if migraines are accompanying you, if you are gaining weight rapidly, it doesn`t influence in the best way your health and mood.
Thus, get a height-adjustable desk. Use a specially developed tool to choose the option that you like and that is suitable for your working conditions. This tool, desk builder, helps you to choose items one by one by adjusting their style, colour, and their price.
Another option is to buy a lifting frame and to fix your old desktop on it. You get a new desk for a much lower price, and you keep the functionality and familiarity of your old desk.
2. Not Enough Storage Room? A Bed Lift Is the Solution!
If you are suffering from a lack of storage space, check what places are not used to their full extent. One of the most spacious places that are almost never used is the place under your bed. What about making a storage there? Just imagine how many things you can hide there.
To do so, fix your bed on two actuators. Another option is to use a special bed lift, but the main principle is the same. You need to make the bed lift and lower depending on what you need. under the bed, you can install a frame where you can store things. Some beds are already equipped with spacious storage space beneath, and with actuators, you can facilitate their use.
Now, with a push of a button, you can lift the bed and arrange your things conveniently. You do not need anybody to hold the bed. Neither do you have to be afraid that it falls on you: actuators have a special function to be blocked when the system fails. Thus, they will just stay in the same position.
3. What about a New TV-Set? Install It on a TV Lift and Enjoy!
If your old TV-set is rather disappointing and bothering, it means that it is time to buy a new device. With some automation ideas, you will find a place for it even if your living room is small and already too filled with different things.
Get a TV lift and install it in one of those cabinets that take space without adding much functionality. Well, start with purchasing a TV-set. Then, buy a lift based on device features such as weight, size, etc.
The device weight is of special importance if you do not want your device to collapse one day. Check also whether the size of the lift is sufficient to support the TV properly and whether the flit does not generate excessive noises.
Fix the lift in the cabinet, make an opening in the cabinet top to allow your device to lift and lower, and use it.
If you do not even have a cabinet or if you don’t have any place at all, buy a ceiling-mounted lift and fix your device on the ceiling. Yes, it is much more expensive, but the effect is just incredible.
4. A Lift Platform for Your Kitchen Devices
In your kitchen, you need a slot of space if you want to have all those items that facilitate your chores. However, it happens that there is no space for your next device. Even if it is an ultra-modern food processor, if you don’t have where to put it, you cannot get it.
Most of these issues can be solved with some automation. One of the most functional ideas is to make a lift platform for your new device. Install it in one of the kitchen cabinets. The opening in the cabinet top can be closed with a specially made cover when the lift platform is in the retracted position. So, you can use the entire surface of the cabinet and still have a new device. The device can be lifted when you need to apply it and be hidden again when you do not need it anymore.
5. A Drop-Down Shelf for Any Room
This idea can be used in your office, living room, kitchen, bedroom, or anywhere else where you need more storage space. For sure, you have shelves in your home. You know that in the back part, there are those spaces that are either not used or used to store there the most rarely used things.
Divide a usual shelf into two parts. One part, say, the front part, will be fixed, and the back part, in our case, will be fixed onto a drop-down system. With a push of a button, you can lift or lower the back part to expose additional storage space or to hide it. It will be more comfortable to use the entire space. The front part will look like a usual shelf, but its depth will be halved.
A couple of actuators and your imagination can make incredible things. Start with the simplest projects and move to the most complex ones once you gain enough experience and get the needed skills. With time, any automation project will be possible to make. You will be able to turn your house, even the smallest one, into a fully functional automated hub where everything will be arranged for your top convenience in everything.
