What is ladder storage?

Ladder storage has become a huge hit for interior designers in recent years as it provides the perfect place to display more decorative objects in your bathroom whilst still being incredibly practical. Unlike regular bathroom shelves, ladder storage is quick and easy to fit and only needs to be secured to the wall at the top.

  1. Decide on the function of your ladder shelving. Is it predominantly decorative, used to display treasured possessions, or is it going to be your main storage space.
