Reaching New Heights With a Library Ladder
Take advantage of shelves and cabinets that would normally be our of reach with a custom rolling ladder.
To maximize a home’s storage space, sometimes the best way to go is up. Most homeowners don’t think to put shelves higher than arm’s reach, and even if they do, they have to deal with dragging a clunky stepladder around to get stuff down. A more convenient and fun solution— as long as you’re not afraid of heights—would be to install a rolling library ladder from Alaco (alacoladder.com). Each of the ladders is built to customers’ specs out of either solid hardwood or aluminum. And with eight wood species for wooden ladders, seven powder-coating colors for aluminum ladders, and over a dozen hardware finish options, you’re sure to find a look that matches the room where you’re installing the ladder. If you need to match other finishes in your home, the company can mix custom colors for an upcharge. A calculator on the company’s website allows you to get an instant cost estimate for the options you select. A 7-ft. ladder in maple with a clear-satin finish and an 8-ft.-long track starts at $2250.
