If this is the first time you've heard of ladder shelves, they are simply a vertical row of shelves that look like an A-Ladder, with a few slight changes. Most of the time they come in 5 tier heights, though there are also a few brands that make them higher, the top most shelf will be the smallest and each shelf below will gradually get larger similar to a staircase formation. You will find a variety of different styles in your local home depot; the two main varieties are the 'Freestanding' and 'leaning' types. The freestanding ladder shelf has back support so that it can be placed in any space and remains standing on its own. Alternatively the leaning shelf needs to be bolted to a wall in order to stay upright. Each has its own benefits, the freestanding one can be placed anywhere in your house, but there is a risk of it falling over; the leaning shelf has the extra support of the wall so it can support much heavier weights.
If you have just moved into a new house or apartment, then you're probably spending a lot of your free time thinking up creative ways to decorate your interior and make it our own. There are so many different ways to do this, you can make it look cozy, modern, sleek and elegant, the list is endless. Though besides making it look good you'll also need to consider how you are going to store and display your belongings. If you are like me you may have cupboards filled with ornaments, potted plants, books, CDs, records, etc; what are you going to do with all of these things? One way to deal with the clutter is to use cupboards to hide all of your unneeded belongings away, though a better option is to use shelves to present some of your more ornate items in a neat ordered way. The great thing about shelves is there are so many different shapes, sizes, styles and colors to fit your décor, currently the most popular type are the ladder shelves.
You now have the main frame, which is the ladder and the shelves prepared. The next step is to choose a color to paint the ladder shelves; a lot of people opt for a neutral matte white or rustic earthy brown. Don't use oil-based paint; this will make your final product look a little unattractive.
