Ready-made ladder shelving comes in a variety of designs, from basic wood to hand carved designs which add a touch of elegance. They don't hold a lot of storage, and are best used in areas where you want to display items for decoration.
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.
The leaning bookcase has become commonplace in many homes seeking that modern feel. Quite simply, it is just a bookcase but with a distinct crick in its design that almost looks like a ladder. Almost like the ladder found in libraries of old but instead used to shelve books. The leaning bookcase is usually secured directly to the wall and is set up to make the most of limited shelf space.
