Apart from books and other reading materials, one can place other items in their leaning bookcase. Perhaps to use it as a medium for placing their collection of trinkets which they would like to display in their homes for guests to see. This is something which can turn from a regular utility shelf to a wonderful conversational piece. It is no surprise that a lot of people are pleasantly amused with this kind of bookcase. It is something which can not be considered as conventional but is regarded as something modern and functional regardless of the type of room it is placed in.
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.
If this is the first time you've heard of ladder shelves, they are simply a vertical row of shelves that look like an A-Ladder, with a few slight changes. Most of the time they come in 5 tier heights, though there are also a few brands that make them higher, the top most shelf will be the smallest and each shelf below will gradually get larger similar to a staircase formation. You will find a variety of different styles in your local home depot; the two main varieties are the 'Freestanding' and 'leaning' types. The freestanding ladder shelf has back support so that it can be placed in any space and remains standing on its own. Alternatively the leaning shelf needs to be bolted to a wall in order to stay upright. Each has its own benefits, the freestanding one can be placed anywhere in your house, but there is a risk of it falling over; the leaning shelf has the extra support of the wall so it can support much heavier weights.
