I put this fixed ladder up against our loft area because I didn't need the rolling side to side motion and it worked really well. Gave us that nice industrial look.

Great attention to detail. The design fits so well with the character of the house and structure. Great use of space with the tall cabinets.

Great design desigions!!! I like every detail of your loft interior. Now I am finishing building a big detached house. I want to have a living environment with a lot of options where to store different household things. An attic is a popular choice. I'll need to have a ladder to access the loft. I was thinking about optimal desicions and picked 5 most popular models available on the market, among which I try to choose the better variant. There are on the models of different designs and with different folding mechanisms. What do you think I need to pay attention to when choosing an attic ladder?
