Alternately, you can open up the ladder, turn it sideways and add three or four shelves which you balance on the parallel steps on each side. That arrangement gives you a lot of instant shelf space with no need to install anything. If you are concerned about the shelves remaining balanced, you can easily secure them to the steps of the ladder with some screws. Measure the depth of the step and the thickness of the shelf. Buy screws that will go through the step (from the bottom) and into the bottom of the shelf, without going all the way through the shelf. This way the screws won't be seen at all.
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.
Teak bathroom ladder shelves - This is quite a unique rustic design that fits a bathroom space; it has a movable shelf that can be put on any rung of the ladder. The down side to this product is its limited storage space, though it is more of an ornamental piece of furniture to be used to keep toiletries or potted plants. As this item is made from teak wood and has been hand crafted it will set you back about $150, though you may be able to find a cheaper price online.
