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.
Fresh, sleek and sophisticated are all great buzzwords when discussing the leaning bookcase. Made of many different types of materials from wood to aluminum, the possibilities and variations are endless. It will not be difficult to find the perfect match for any home decor. Some of the bookcases even in come in multiple sets with gallery-style shelves rather than the old boring standard upright bookcases. These can be affixed together or you can let them stand alone.
Many units come both as corner and regular units so you can mix and match them to make the best use of the available space. Consider, as an example, adding ladder shelving to both corners of the fireplace wall. The effect will be to soften the impact of the fireplace, giving a sense of symmetry and balance.
