Ladder shelves come in all sorts of different shapes, sizes and colors. The most common types are made from good quality hard woods, which will be coated with a specific finish. There are also ladder shelves made from other materials, such as bamboo or even metal for extra durability. An example of a unique shelf is the 'Shanxi Shelf'; this oriental styled product is made from a strong hammered metal in a black finish hide metal shine. The upside to having a metal shelf is that it can withstand more weight and will last longer than a wooden shelf; this is especially true if you live in a humid climate.
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.
The second step in building your ladder shelves is to take a few measurements, you will need to know the distance between each rung level, this is so that you can cut out your shelves to the right size. After you have the correct measurements, you will need to add about 16 to 17 inches to the length values, each platform needs to be a little longer than the distance between each rung. Don't forget to add up all the lengths and buy enough wood board for all of the shelves, you might be able to get wood for free at your local landfill site.
