Ladder-Bookcase &
Leaning-Bookcase Storage

A ladder-bookcase doesn't take up much room, is affordable, accomodates additional storage needs, and looks great at the same time. Don’t you agree that having enough storage space is always a problem? It seems as though you are always running out of space. Having to find room for your own office books and files, your kids suddenly want to start storing their stuff with yours! So how do you accommodate all of this?

Ladder-shelf bookcases are really popular this year and they make wonderful gifts too. As well as buying one for your home office, you could get the exact same one for your kids for a gift.

Then they would have the same one as mom or dad and should be extremely happy!

A good example of a ladder-bookcase is the Unique 72" High LEANING LADDER STYLE MAGAZINE / BOOK SHELF on Black Finish.

It is really affordable with a price of just under $40 that we found at Amazon.

This bookcase is black and constructed from wood. The leaning ladder style makes it look very contemporary with a sleek design.

This would look great in any office or bedroom and offers lots of space without taking up too much room.

You can easily store your books, files, DVD’s, video games and any decorations or small office supplies on it.


This ladder-shelf bookcase does require some assembly which customer’s have reported being very easy to do. Most people have assembled this bookcase in less than an hour. The bottom shelf does come with support legs if you wish to store any heavier items on it.

This is optional so only use the support legs if you need to. This product comes with wood glue but many customers preferred using Gorilla glue instead as they found this to be more durable.

Contemporary Black Finish 5-Tier Ladder Book Shelf

Another popular ladder-bookcase is the Contemporary Black Finish 5-Tier Ladder Book Shelf. B002XUKXFC It has 5 shelves which can hold your books, folders, tapes, computer discs and DVD’s.

This is a compact ladder bookshelf that can easily fit into your home office, a bedroom or a college dorm. It will look great and provides enough storage choices for everyone.

The ladder-shelf measures 25 inches wide by 17 inches deep by 72 inches high.

The widest shelf is at the bottom with the higher shelves becoming narrower as they progress in height. The top shelf is 6 ½ inches wide.

You must assemble this ladder-bookshelf as well and it comes complete with everything you need to achieve this quickly and easily. This 5 Tier Ladder-Bookshelf also comes in a warm cappuccino color choice. Once assembled your new book shelf weighs about 27 pounds so it is easy to move into your desired location.

Customers have been overall satisfied with their purchase of this book case and you can see this in the comment below.

I bought this for our office & couldn't be happier with the quality & design! It's modern with clean lines & looks great with our new desk! My husband & I were able to put this together in about 30 minutes. We use the bottom shelf for DVDs & the rest for books & pictures. It's sturdy, but I wouldn't recommend putting anything heavy on it.

As you can see this person did note that you cannot place anything too heavy on this bookcase and a few other customers noted the same thing. It is perfect for placing around 25 books or office items on. Some people purchased several of these and placed them together along one wall which resulted in a great look.

If you are looking for a ladder-bookcase that can hold heavier items you may want to choose the Unique 72" High LEANING LADDER STYLE MAGAZINE / BOOK SHELF on Black Finish, which we talked about earlier. As we noted it does come with additional support legs which are perfect for storing heavier or bulkier items.

You do have plenty of additional choices for office storage including traditional solid type book cases. Depending upon the type of items you have to store you might wish to use storage baskets, many come in a self contained unit with a flat top. This would be perfect for placing your office printer on or even your phone or fax machine.

Other smaller storage items might suit you just fine as well and this includes purchasing a small filing cabinet or just using a table top filing tray. To see more options for bookcases and storage units please visit this link.
