Friday Favorite: Library Bookcases with Ladders

Sometimes, it’s the details that draw me in and make me fall in love with an item and that’s exactly what happened when I first came across library bookcases with ladders.  Yes, it’s true, I love all bookcases, but one with a ladder?!  Well, my heart skips a beat.



The beauty of the bookcases mixed with the utilitarian nature of the ladder makes for a perfect combo in my book.

If you have tall ceilings, one advantage is that you can take your bookcase all the way to the ceiling and yet still easily access the upper shelves.

So beautiful!


Library bookcases with ladders aren’t limited to those that are built-in.  Freestanding ones are equally beautiful and sometimes, more realistic for your space.

If you’re not planning a remodel with built-ins, you can still have one of these beauties.  Some freestanding bookcases can be purchased with ladders, like this one from Restoration Hardware:

Or this one from Cost Plus World Market:

You can also purchase ready-made bookcase ladders from vendors like {this one}.



A taller bookcase with a ladder was in my original plans for our master bedroom, but budget just didn’t allow for it.  I still dream of having one, though…. :)

    I too love bookcases, especially when they have a ladder. You’ve shown us some dream worthy examples.
    Enjoy your weekend.
