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?
Opus Oak Ladder Shelves - This particular ladder shelf has a slightly different look to the standard shelf, it is similar to an 'S' turned on its side. It has a trendy modern appeal for younger people, but is a little on the expensive side costing over $200 each. The opus shelf has 7 shelves and a height/width of 59" x 20", this retro looking robust oak shelf would make a good addition to any sleek interior.
Ready-made ladder shelving comes in a variety of designs, from basic wood to hand carved designs which add a touch of elegance. They don't hold a lot of storage, and are best used in areas where you want to display items for decoration.
