Manufacturers today are creating products with the less-is-more
idea in mind.
Home furnishings are far lighter and far more space conserving
now than they ever have been.
So this strategy was never needed in the past since our
predecessors had an entirely different way of life.
Less busy. Less complicated in specific areas, and so on.
But that is clearly not the case today.
When you recognize that you want something from this day
forward you can easily offer your home the best space possible
by considering whether you can furnish your home with an item on
Level 3 first.
And if it is not possible on that level, drop down a level until
it is possible to furnish your home on that specific level.
Take for example, a television.
Level 1: Floor
You know your home can easily be furnished with a television
using Level 1.
And your most space conservative item to mount a television
on is a pedestal tv stand, or a tv pole that extends from the
floor to the ceiling.
When you use Level 1 you want to be certain to brainstorm for
the most space conserving way to use your floor space.
You'll want to find the smallest, yet most reliable item that
you can find that will do the job.
And when you are able to find this type of item, it is so
good at space conserving that Level 1 almost gives you the
same advantages that Level 2 does.
For example, if you were to use a tv pole to put your tv on.
The pole itself takes up so little floor space and mounts the
tv in midair that it's similar to furnishing your home with
a tv using Level 2.
Level 1 will always take up floor space and interfere with
your walking zone.
The best you can do with Level 1 is get an item that uses
as little floor space as possible and interferes with your
walking zone as little as possible.
Level 2: Wall
These days with lcds and plasma tvs, you even know that your
home can be furnished with the television using Level 2.
And your most space conservative item to mount your television
on is a tv wall mount. But not only can lcds and plasmas be
mounted on the wall, your average television can be too.
There are dozens of wall mounts out there that mount regular
tvs. But tv wall mounts may be something that has never
surfaced to your mind.
And this is a good example of when Level 2 is often left out
of the picture.
Level 2 will not take up floor space but it will interfere
with your walking zone the majority of the time.
The higher an item is positioned on your wall the less it
will interfere with your walking zone.
If it is positioned very high on your wall it will have
the same exact advantages as Level 3. It will only take
up air space and offer no space interference.
Level 3: Ceiling
Same goes with tvs and Level 3. There are dozens of ceiling
mounts out there that your tvs can be mounted on.
But ceiling wall mounts don't arise to the surface of many
minds. And this also makes a good example of how Level 3 is
often left out of the picture when furnishing your home.
Level 3 will not take up floor space or interfere with your
walking zone (assuming you are not so tall that you actually
reach your ceiling). Level three only takes up air space.
It offers the most advantages.
There are dozens and dozens of items out there that you may
not even know exists that you can furnish your home with.
That are considered much lighter and more suitable alternatives
than what you have in your home right now.
Consider an aquarium and the three levels. Did you know that
wall aquariums existed?
Not the type that you put inside of a wall, but the type of
aquarium in which you can hang on your wall like a picture?
They are often referred to as Living Pictures.
Living Pictures could be saving you space in your home right
now if you knew about them.
If you own an aquarium that's taking up a large amount of
floor space you could easily incorporate Level 2 in your home
to give yourself more room.
Not to mention you have more of an advantage by being able to
place your Living Picture just about anywhere in your home.
Knowing about the top-to-bottom-strategy is offering yourself
more freedom. And more knowledge. And knowledge is power.
One of the best ways that you can find out about these items is
by using the top-to-bottom-strategy in combination with surfing
the net and researching each item that you're interested in.
Always remember to research what you want (using the top-to-
bottom-strategy) before you go out and buy what you see.
