If you’re looking for library ladders with a classic and romantic storybook feel, try seeking out ladders in the French country or traditional English style. Victorian library ladders are also likely to showcase striking, detailed curvature, as are Art Nouveau ladders. For more refined libraries, check out Regency and Edwardian vintage library ladder steps. Many are simply designed and constructed from rich, decorative woods like mahogany. Many spiral library ladder step stools also hail from this era. Typically composed of three spiraling steps equipped with a protruding spindle handle, spiral library ladders are perfect for adding a sense of curiosity to a space.

Library ladders can also be utilized for lofts. If you’re looking for library ladders for lofts, consider whether railings are a necessity or not. Library ladders styled after foldable construction ladders are common, but lack the accessibility of my stairway-style ladders. All of that said, foldable ladders are often taller than stairway style ladders and take up less space, making them ideal for homes with hidden lofts in small spaces.
