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?
So why are ladder shelves so popular with house owners all of a sudden? One reason might be to do with the affects of the recent economic downturn; people are keeping a close hold on what money they have. Instead of spending your hard earned salaries on a brand new set of shelves the other option would be to make your own. You might be thinking that it is a huge job that may take over a week to complete, but you'd be wrong, making a set of ladder shelves is very simple and will cost you a fraction of the price of buying them new.
Why not throw a media stand between two leaning bookcases and really strike a modern pose in the living room? How about a mini wine bar between two bookcases in an adjoining anteroom? There are even versions that act like desks while featuring the familiar leaning shelves just above.
