In a ladder bookcase where the storage is tray-like platform, the books are piled on each other owing to the limited space the design provides. In the real sense of it, it is not designed for heavy storage of books. It is best designed for light storage of books which can be your magazine, journals and as a stand for your newspaper.

You might be thinking of a ladder bookcase as being ceiling-high; No, not at all. But in as much that may not be impossible, most are often designed as low sized bookcases. The steps they carry may not go beyond five for most heights. Invariably, the ladder bookcases are always small and not the supposedly high ones imagined. In fact, you don’t have to raise a hand high-up before you pick up an item from many of the designs found in the market.
