Aside from the leaning and freestanding ladder shelves, this product also comes in other varieties. There is a freestanding vertical ladder shelf, which looks very different to the A-Shaped shelf, imagine a tall narrow CD rack. An example of the vertical ladder shelf is the 'Opus' design it looks like the letter 'S' turned over on its side. This particular style has a retro feel to it that may appeal to younger home owners looking for a trendy interior accessory. The downside to this type of shelf is its price, because of the unique shape and the fact that it is made from good quality oak, this item will set you back much more than the price of a regular A-Shape ladder shelf.
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.
