Slim and sturdy
Our ceilings on the 1st floor of the new studio building are about 10.5' with some storage cabinets hung pretty high, se we needed a good ladder so we could actually use them.
When I started looking around for one, most ranged from clunky and utilitarian to bulbous and over-designed, and they all looked tough to store and maneuver.
I was looking for something that was nice to look at so we could store out in the open making it easy to grab, while also being lightweight and easy to use.
Ended up splurging a bit on this super slim and lightweight (but sturdy) japanese model that's available in amazon. Since the easier it is to use, the more I'll use it, it felt like an ok investment 😌 🇯🇵 Now we just need to find a nice spot to hang it!
