The Tiny House Trend: Saving Space with Stairs and Ladders

tiny house ships ladderWhether you are a recent college graduate looking to save some money or a recent retiree interested in downsizing and living a simpler life, you will find there are many benefits to embracing the tiny house movement. Within just a few weeks of moving into a tiny home, you will start to see a positive financial impact, and you will also enjoy the fact you won’t need to do as much cleaning or maintenance!

One of the big drawbacks with tiny homes, though, is that they do not offer very much storage space. Because tiny homes are usually less than 500 square feet, you will need to get creative when it comes to storing the necessities.  There are many ways you can do this, but one of the most effective is to be very mindful about the types of stairs and ladders you use inside of your tiny home. There are some stairs with built-in storage, but rather than limiting yourself by installing a traditional staircase, you should consider using a ships ladder. Why? It will take up much less space!

Regardless of whether you decide on a wooden ship ladder with a railing that levels off at the top (and is perfect for low ceilings), a sturdy loft ladder that will transport you up to your sleeping quarters, or a custom ladder designed to match the look and feel of your tiny home, there are plenty of options available to you.

The stairs or ladder you use in your tiny home is very important, and you should choose an option that is both safe for your family and efficient when it comes to storage. If you would like to see some of the staircase and ladder choices available, call Acadia Stairs at 845-765-8600.
