1. Eliminate the height drop

considering the convenience and safety of the elderly and children at home, the first thing to solve is the plane drop of the whole house. The most consistent principle of general design is to build all spaces on the same level, so as to ensure the smooth movement of the whole family

At this time, you might as well place a small shoe rack with a stool design here, which not only increases the storage space, but also facilitates the wearing and taking off of shoes. When designing the wardrobe, you can choose a clothes rod with lifting function, which can facilitate the elderly and children to take clothes
