Apartment Living


Learning about our smart home bit by bit.

Figured out yesterday that we can use our apartment intercom to call the lift/elevator as well as choose the destination floor before leaving!!
(It will save us literally 10 seconds in the lobby, waiting for the lift 😅)

Not to mention that we first had to get used to the elevator not having any floor buttons to press. We always needed to select the floor from the digital display ‘outside’ the elevator before getting in.
All the delivery guys have been equally stumped by this feature. 🙂

Are all apartments in Berlin/Germany designed for tall people or those with min height 160 cm?

A short thread from a short person:

1> At 155 cm, I need a step stool to comfortably reach the lowest cabinet shelf in the wall cabinet in the kitchen, and obviously a ladder to reach the remaining top ones.

All I now wish is for a ladder with wheels that I can operate using a remote control 😀.

2> The bath tub wall is too high so again I need a step stool to climb into the bath tub…the height of the tub wall definitely seems like that for a default tall person.

3> The bathroom door is so so high that even if I somehow fit the over-the-door hook hangar, I will not be able to reach the hooks without assistance.
The over-door-hook hangar now hangs on the rails of the towel warmer 🤦🏻‍♀️
