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.
When you learn how easy it is to construct a simple set of ladder shelves, you'll wonder why you hadn't done it sooner. If you have a quick look around the house you probably have all the materials that you need, the most important part is having an 'A-Ladder' made from wood, the rest of the supplies can easily be bought at any hardware store or home depot.
Homeowners will appreciate several benefits from it such as its space saving feature, its biggest plus factor. What's more is that ladder shelves can easily be mounted against a wall or position it in any corner of the house. It has a slim frame that won't take up so much floor space, ideal to use on houses with small rooms. It's specifically designed to fit in tight corner areas, reception areas and it can also complement study or work tables.
