In fact, depending on what you plan to put on it, you could actually use a real ladder as a shelving unit by leaning it against the wall without opening it. Since there won't be much depth to the shelves if you do this, make sure you leave the ladder in a part of the room which doesn't get much people traffic. It's perfect for displaying changing artwork or photos and adding interest to a corner.
Why not throw a media stand between two leaning bookcases and really strike a modern pose in the living room? How about a mini wine bar between two bookcases in an adjoining anteroom? There are even versions that act like desks while featuring the familiar leaning shelves just above.
The ladder shelves are a great addition to any modern interior and will definitely give your living space a more dynamic appeal. Most people like the idea of these shelves, because besides being creative, they are very reasonably priced. If you do a quick online search for 'ladder shelves' you'll realize that the lowest price item is just $50. Though if you're looking for a more up market variety, then there are shelves costing as much as $800 from certain brands.
