Most people who have just moved into a new house or apartment struggle to decide on how they are going to decorate and organize their belongings. Some may spend weeks or even months picking out furniture or getting things put into the right place in a way that suits their personal taste; do you go for a cozy lived in feel or a sleek modern look? Sometimes it's better to just forget about following the latest trends and go for neat and functional. One great space saver that uses the vertical wall space in your home are shelves, these simple pieces of furniture will have your house looking clean and organized in no time. Whether you want to store books, CD's, potted plants or records, there will be a style of shelf to fit your homes decor. Step shelves, leaning shelves, standard wall shelves all of these are options and will give each room a particular character, though if you're having a tough time deciding on which to buy why not go for the currently popular ladder shelves.
Typically, ladder bookcases have up to five shelves, the lowest one being the deepest, with each shelf occupying a smaller footprint than the one beneath it.
You now have the main frame, which is the ladder and the shelves prepared. The next step is to choose a color to paint the ladder shelves; a lot of people opt for a neutral matte white or rustic earthy brown. Don't use oil-based paint; this will make your final product look a little unattractive.
