In fact, depending on what you plan to put on it, you could actually use a real ladder as a shelving unit by leaning it against the wall without opening it. Since there won't be much depth to the shelves if you do this, make sure you leave the ladder in a part of the room which doesn't get much people traffic. It's perfect for displaying changing artwork or photos and adding interest to a corner.
The first step is to buy or find your self a second hand 'A-Ladder', these are old wooden step ladders with 5 - 6 rungs, if you don't have one in your garage or back garden you may be able to find a cheap alternative at a flea market or back yard sale. Don't pay more than $10 for a used A-Ladder and if you have to go to your local home depot they are available for bout $20 each.
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.
