We often find ourselves needing space for items that are essential but seldom used. Our stepladder and ironing board are definitely two of these - we don't need to access light fixtures or high cabinets very often, and work from home so have a pretty iron-free wardrobe. When we saw this ladder/ironing board combo at Tiny Living we were pretty stoked.
Combining the two functions means one thing to store instead of two, and while we haven't seen it in person, the photos make it look like a pretty intuitive set-up.
