Rolling Ladder: Tips and Ideas

• Create a parking spot for your ladder by installing a track that's about 2 feet longer at one end than your bank of cabinetry. That way it won't block access to doors or appliances when not in use.

• Order a ladder that's at least 5 inches taller than the height of the rail on the wall. Any shorter and the angle will be too steep for comfortable climbing; any longer and it'll eat up valuable floor space.
