Have you heard of ladder shelves?
Compared to conventional ladders, shelf ladders have large flat treads which makes them much safer and more comfortable to use than ordinary extension ladders.
Madison Loop Ladder Bookcases- This has an antique white finish and greatly influenced by Scandinavian designs which can add an airy ambiance to any room.
Alternately, you can open up the ladder, turn it sideways and add three or four shelves which you balance on the parallel steps on each side. That arrangement gives you a lot of instant shelf space with no need to install anything. If you are concerned about the shelves remaining balanced, you can easily secure them to the steps of the ladder with some screws. Measure the depth of the step and the thickness of the shelf. Buy screws that will go through the step (from the bottom) and into the bottom of the shelf, without going all the way through the shelf. This way the screws won't be seen at all.
