Ladder bookcases give you an interesting accent piece in your home. This type of shelving is perfect for showcasing knick-knacks or small books. But the ladder bookcases also provide portability, because you can move them easily. Ladder bookcases live up to their name, because they look like a ladder with shelves. Some ladder bookcases have two feet on both the front and back, like a step ladder. This configuration allows them to be free standing. Other times, they will look more like an extension ladder with no back section. With this type of ladder bookcase, you’ll lean it against a wall to provide stability. Most ladder bookcases will have four or five shelves. Shelves at the bottom will be deeper than the upper shelves because of the angle of the frame.
