The flat-bike-lift is a new ceiling hydro-pneumatic overhead bike rack to be used in the house garage or in place where we park our bike. Once the bike is loaded and securely attached in a simple and quick way, a slight upward hand push activates the lifting system of the flat-bike-lift that takes it safely and automatically into the horizontal position against the ceiling to get more free space on the floor for cars and other necessities.
By a simple downward hand traction, flat-bike-lift takes it back to the vertical position, ready to be unloaded and used again. The idle upstroke is automatic and low-speed driven. Designed for all kind of bikes, the flat-bike-lift includes several useful optionals that make it suited for different ceiling heights and weights to lift. Moreover, it can be equipped with a helmet holder, a second handler to make its use even simpler and an optional tray to load two kid bikes. Have a look at the video below to better understand how the system works and tell us what you think! [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Flat-bike-lift]
Create height with items such as plants, artwork and books. Alternate taller pieces with shorter items such as peite vases, as shown below in the A Beautiful Mess studio living room. Not sure where to start? Choose a cohesive look and go for it! The next shelf vignette featured at Emily Henderson showcases a “Desert New Age” style, which welcomes earthy tones, tribal patterns, succulents and mineral specimens, among other pieces. In fact, in the next image we see the exact same shelf, this time styled to create a Playful Scholar look featuring neutral, masculine colors. Note special touches such as a globe and a bust displayed in a cloche. Incorporate a few unique conversation pieces into your shelving display for added interest.
We now turn to top design bloggers such as Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, who has decorated her kitchen shelving with an array of pastel dishware. Don’t be afraid to mix function and style when it comes to your decorative shelves. Put useful items on display, but arrange them artfully. If the shelving is purely decorative, choose pieces carefully. Be selective, as this gives your shelves a curated, artful look, as shown by this DIY hoop shelf from A Beautiful Mess.
