This in turn keeps your electricity bills down and saves your family money.

Since the war on plastic is now raging across the world reusable packaging and storage ideas are now being searched for by a growing eco audience.  At Julu we have seen a healthy rise of Tin ware purchases and this could be contributed to the increase of zero waste shops opening round the UK.  As Farm shop retailing has become popular due to social conscience.

Laundry Ladders In Tiny Homes

Clever Ideas For Laundry Ladders In Tiny Homes | Blog Image

Posted by on 18 March 2019 | Comments

Have you seen the new trend for down sizing and living in Tiny Homes, the Julu Team have seen some of these amazing homes on social media.  They can make the smallest of dwellings work as a home.   There are log cabin style, tiny cottages, sheds, boats and some are on wheels. My favourite is a little red cottage complete with chimney or this rather smart shed.

The Laundry Ladder was designed to suit homes without high ceilings, so it lends itself nicely to these Tiny Homes.  The Laundry Ladder makes small spaces work better.

There are so many benefits to labeling clothes and belongings.  It helps everyone, as our busy lives leave no time to check our kit.  Teaching our families to look after their own belongings starts with good labeling, promoting good habits early to last through life.

A Great Investment

The Julu Laundry Ladder is a truly wonderful investment for young people setting up home for the first time.  First time buyers need to think about how they organise their washing and laundry and this can be made so much easier after investing in a Laundry Ladder - wall mounted airer.  It is portable, so can be moved easily as you move home.  It can be put in small areas as it is space saving, being used in a hallway or by a door, as it manoeuvres up and down making access easy even when fully loaded with washing.

The Laundry Ladder is the ultimate clothes airer for all those people with houses without high ceilings; it's a wall mounted, clothes airer and works on the same principle as the old-fashioned ceiling airers; Shelia-made and Pulley-maid, to name but a few!  Julu's Laundry Ladder is hung on the wall with Julu brackets (meaning it's not fixed) keeping your washing off floor and out of the way when in use and becoming an attractive piece of furniture which blends into your home when not used.
