Shelves to Keep Your Belongings Can Also Be Automated

You might believe that shelves are the most inconvenient furniture pieces even though they are needed. What about installing them somewhere just below the ceiling? Fix them on a couple of actuators to make them lower when you need to take your tools. In the normal position, they will be again moved to the ceiling.

What about Some Comfort?

Once more, we understand that functionality is a must. However, you would want to receive in your cave your friends. Have you thought about where you can accommodate them?

What about a table that can be folded and unfolded automatically or even be lifted from the floor to the needed height? For a foldable table, you need to fix one side to the wall. Below it, fix actuators to make them unfold the table.

For a height-adjustable table, use a good lift system. The lower position shall be at the level of your cave floor. Ok, you might need to make the floor level lower there to accommodate the actuator system. The table top shall be also very robust.

Would You Love to Use Ceiling?

Height adjustable rods with hooks is the solution we are going to talk about. The hooks can be used to store your rods, tools, etc. When you don’t need the item, just move it up to the ceiling.

Now, you know how to turn your hub into something incredible. Moreover, the ideas aren’t limited to the mentioned ones. Check what you would love to have in your special cave, think about what you can use to handle it, and move for it.
