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.
Ladder shelves come in all sorts of different shapes, sizes and colors. The most common types are made from good quality hard woods, which will be coated with a specific finish. There are also ladder shelves made from other materials, such as bamboo or even metal for extra durability. An example of a unique shelf is the 'Shanxi Shelf'; this oriental styled product is made from a strong hammered metal in a black finish hide metal shine. The upside to having a metal shelf is that it can withstand more weight and will last longer than a wooden shelf; this is especially true if you live in a humid climate.
Compared to conventional ladders, shelf ladders have large flat treads which makes them much safer and more comfortable to use than ordinary extension ladders.
