This idea of getting things off the floor is great! Before installing anything onto your ceiling, however, be sure to check if you have engineered I-beams or engineered truss systems. (Most homes built after 2000 do.) If you attach anything to hang beneath them, the warranty on them is voided. They are not designed to support a suspended load. A stud finder won't indicate a difference, so you will have to take a look with a camera or know the type of construction during the building process. Unfortunately, many of these suspended-load manufacturers don't tell customers about this.
