2-year-old Luisa is sitting on the small “stool” in the hallway, putting on her rubber boots. Mummy Kristina is waiting with baby Samuel in her arms who is bundled up and ready to go. The three of them want to go out for a walk. Luisa gets up, gives the drawer a gentle push and watches how it disappears into the plinth. Off they go. “Luisa likes to sit on the step to put on her shoes. And it makes it easier for me to store away things in the cupboard above or see exactly what we’ve got up there − for instance, winter scarves and gloves,” says the 34-year-old. The plinth drawer with a built-in “step ladder” can be incorporated in plinths that are 15 to 25 cm high.
The SPACE STEP plinth solution − a hidden accessory
The fate of seldom-used items and kitchen utensils is clear. They almost always end up in wall cabinets where users can hardly reach them. And when they are needed, even tall people will resort to a step stool − just to make sure they can see and find what they are looking for.
