We've covered quite a few floating pieces of furniture before, but tech blog Unplggd takes it even further with a floating entertainment centre, noting that all these setups have one big benefit: they encourage you to keep the floor clean.
Unplggd explains their reasoning:
There a couple of benefits in keeping everything off the floor. First, it looks clean and minimal. Especially compared to all of the wire jungles that's all too common in households today, it's a refreshing and welcomed change.
A second benefit would be that it encourages cleaning. An iRobot Roomba would surely benefit from having the furniture lifted off the floors, but in general, dust, cat hair, and other floor undesirables, when visible to feel like part of the square footage you're walking around in, will receive the dust mop more often than not.
It's not exactly scientific, but it's hard to argue with that logic—it's a lot harder to care about dirt underneath a floor-standing desk than it is about dirt all over your floor. Hit the link to read more, and let us know if you think this would help change your habits in the comments.
