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.
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.
