Step by step to constructing your own ladder shelves
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.
What most people like about ladder shelves, is that they look original and they can make effective use of the vertical space in your home. If you tend to have a lot of extra belongings and don't now where to store them then this is the right shelf type for your house. A lot of people forget to use the vertical space in their homes; shelves and cupboards are a great way to save a lot of space. Ladder shelves will add a creative touch to your interior and give you a neat way to organize your things.
