You can also use a short stepladder as a plant stand when it's not in use.
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.
Many units come both as corner and regular units so you can mix and match them to make the best use of the available space. Consider, as an example, adding ladder shelving to both corners of the fireplace wall. The effect will be to soften the impact of the fireplace, giving a sense of symmetry and balance.
