If you buy a wooden ladder you can paint it any color you wish and get matching shelves. If you prefer a more modern look, go for a chrome finish instead.
With a bookcase of this type, you can really make a statement, whether that is to simply place books on the shelves or even insert drawers and items to make a nice display. Higher quality materials will cost more for the same basic shape but sometimes the juxtaposition of wood and metal can make a beautiful addition to any room. In short, this style of bookcase definitely is a rule-breaker but it is most certainly not a deal breaker when it comes to improving a room. The ergonomics and design of a leaning bookcase truly allow the room to come together in ways previously unknown.
Nowadays ladder shelves have become a hot item in most homes around the world, they have a friendly homely feel and come in a variety of unique shapes and sizes. For those of you that have never come across ladder shelves before, then imagine an A-shaped step ladder with platforms going along each pair of rungs. When placed against the wall it gives the room an interesting dimension, because the top shelf is small and each lower level gradually gets longer forming a step shape that comes out of the wall. Even if you are the most uncreative person in the world, this setup will give your room an interesting edge and force you to think about how you're going to decorate the shelf, what will you put on the different sized platforms?
