Making a comeback nowadays in most homes are ladder shelves. In fact, it is becoming a favorite among modern interior designers because it offers a unique sense of style design for a house.

Nowadays ladder shelves have become a hot item in most homes around the world, they have a friendly homely feel and come in a variety of unique shapes and sizes. For those of you that have never come across ladder shelves before, then imagine an A-shaped step ladder with platforms going along each pair of rungs. When placed against the wall it gives the room an interesting dimension, because the top shelf is small and each lower level gradually gets longer forming a step shape that comes out of the wall. Even if you are the most uncreative person in the world, this setup will give your room an interesting edge and force you to think about how you're going to decorate the shelf, what will you put on the different sized platforms?
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.
If you buy a wooden ladder you can paint it any color you wish and get matching shelves. If you prefer a more modern look, go for a chrome finish instead.
