MYTH OF MODULAR FURNITURE:

SO... you really think the furniture companies out there produce truly modular, space-efficient furniture?
Think again. My purpose is to demonstrate, that what they would have you believe, isn't necessarily true at all.

The bedroom furniture depicted below is meant to be
and would come in especially handy for people who:

Other Practical Ideas

AND THE LIST OF POTENTIAL PERMUTATIONS GOES ON & ON... IT JUST REQUIRES USING SOME IMAGINATION. SUFFICE, THAT THERE'S SO MUCH MORE POSSIBILITES FOR DRESSER, ARMOIRE, CHEST & CLOSET CONFIGURATIONS. BUT IT'S BEYOND THE SCOPE OF MY AMATEUR GRAPHICS STRENGTH.








OTHER PRACTICAL IDEAS:

  1. TABLESPOONS: People who buy fancy silverware and think they're getting a good deal - think again! Because the fancy tablespoons are usually thick, and therefore cannot be used to efficiently scrape out a bowl. Also, for example, when eating a melon, thick spoons cannot efficiently "slice" out pieces the way non-fancy spoons can. Also, it's ridiculous how many tablespoons are designed with an impractical pointy shape, instead of being a more rounded oval. Something to think about - hmm?
  2. REFRIGERATORS: First of all, I wish that Maytag, Frigidaire, Kenmore etc. would implement the same track-type of shelving system for the freezer compartments of their refrigerators, as they do in the frig compartment beneath; i.e. there should be two separate adjustable shelves. One on the right, the other on the left. This way, if you have, say, a huge container of ice cream (or whatever), you would then need to adjust only one of the freezer shelves to make room for it. That's just one example, but that's the general idea. Also, I wish that all refrigerators were made with a larger freezer compartment. Then it wouldn't be necessary to run a separate freezer, which costs alot of money in electric bills. Am I the only one frustrated by this?
