First up is from West Elm. This can be achieved with no DIY skills at all. The ladder is available from the store. I love it coupled with the stump stool and the combination of natural wood with the gray and white.
The next application is definitely a DIY project using a vintage ladder hanging in the ceiling. This one is unique because the purpose is not a towel rack but instead a solution for hanging plants. I bet the plants love the humidity!
Below is a different approach to storing towels on the ladder. It is not being used as a towel rack but more as replacement for shelves. It is a nice aarrangement of colors and shapes.
Below is a decidedly handcrafted ladder made from weathered wood bringing a touch of the outdoors into this bathroom.
Change the function of the ladder by also hanging vintage wire baskets from it as shown below. Love the ladder but I am not sure about the glass window in the bathroom door!
Next is a beautiful blending of a contemporary bathroom with a bamboo ladder. The ladder absolutely softens the impact.
The ladder traditionally is thought of as a fixture in country décor but it works in contemporary and Asian influenced design just as well.
This is my fourth ladder post in the series. Are you getting any ideas for ways to add one to your home yet? If you are just checking in be sure to explore the following posts in this series as well......
