Your Newest Storage and Interior Design Hack? Ladder Bookcases. Here Are Some of Our Favorites.

Whether it’s for a sprawling classic book collection, a scented candle obsession or a pile of odds and ends you can’t bring yourself to get rid of — we’re all always trying to find creative ways to store our stuff. We know what Marie Kondo would say about our borderline-hoarding habits but no matter how hard we try, we can’t bring ourselves to be minimalist. And you know what? That’s okay.

Rather than getting rid of the stuff you don’t have space to store, it’s time to get creative about where your belongings live in your home, and use up the space you have sitting right in front of you. Ladder bookshelves use up vertical space in your home without taking up any nearly any floor space and look great while doing it. They’re a simple item of furniture that will blend in and compliment a wide range of decor

Rare hotel featuring inclusive design opens in Amherst | Local News

Uniland in 2018 won $1.15 million in incentives from the Amherst Industrial Development Agency by arguing the project qualified as a tourism destination. The developer later bought the property from the town.

Uniland from the beginning set out to design a hotel that could better accommodate sled-hockey players and other athletes with disabilities.

Universal, or inclusive, design is different than accessible design, said Levine of UB’s IDEA Center. Accessibility is a minimum standard and can be an afterthought in the design process.

The standard also usually centers on people with mobility or vision impairment and doesn’t address the needs of people with, for example, cognitive disabilities, colorblindness, chemical sensitivity, she said.

“Accessibility is not good enough and as designers we need to go beyond that,” Levine said.

There are no standard Hampton rooms in the hotel at 1601 Amherst Manor Drive. Seven of the 107 rooms are fully accessible, as

Whether you are adding a new shower in your bathroom or updating an old shower, walk-in showers with glass doors are still very popular.

When you are planning the project, you and your shower glass professional need to discuss what type of shower enclosure and glass doors will best meet your lifestyle.

The exact dimensions of your shower space will be needed, as well as how much room you have between the shower and other fixtures, and the amount of time you want to invest in daily cleanup.


 Frameless clear glass enclosures are still the most popular choice for showers. A protective coating can be added to protect the glass from hardwater and soap scum.
