There are many ways for an individual to neatly keep their books in one place. Among the most recent addition in furniture designs is the leaning bookcase. This kind of furniture piece will enable you to have an additional accent to your room or any place where you would like to feature your collection of books.
The ladder shelves are a great addition to any modern interior and will definitely give your living space a more dynamic appeal. Most people like the idea of these shelves, because besides being creative, they are very reasonably priced. If you do a quick online search for 'ladder shelves' you'll realize that the lowest price item is just $50. Though if you're looking for a more up market variety, then there are shelves costing as much as $800 from certain brands.
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.
If you're still trying to decide on what type of furniture to decorate your home with and keep it looking organized, then why not opt for the popular ladder shelves they are guaranteed to please.
