Half Painted Ladder
This dipped ladder from West Elm is more sleek than rustic, and perfect for storing (and displaying) throw blankets. We love the two-tone design, which gives it a stylish minimalist feeling. A ladder like this is a great small space storage solution, or a fix for a wall that needs something other than art.Continue to 3 of 11 below.

For those in small spaces who might actually need to use a step ladder around the house or their apartment but have no where to hide it out of site, we love the idea of making it part of your decor. A small stack of books, a plant or some candles will make even the most utilitarian ladder look intentionally stylish.Continue to 8 of 11 below.

Ladder Magazine Rack
This magazine rack from CB2 has the look of a ladder without the practical application. We could see this piece looking right at home in an industrial loft or a hallway where space is tight but the walls could use some interest. In a dorm room, this could be used to keep text books and notebooks all in one place as well.Continue to 9 of 11 below.

Step Stool Ladder
Bold yet practical! This bright red step stool we found from Bed Bath and Beyond can easily be dressed up and used as the ultimate form-meets-function tool in your home. We'd stack colorful coffee table books on both steps, then add a small succulent or candle cluster. This is a great small space trick we can't wait to try.Continue to 11 of 11 below.

Orchard ladders are used around the world (and have been for centuries) to harvest fruit from apple, orange, lemon and other trees. The design is practical—the top purposely narrows so that it can be leaned against small tree branches without harming the soon-to-be harvested fruits. This version from Restoration Hardware has charming rustic details you'd never expect, like rungs that are "whittled at the ends to join the tapering uprights in mortise" and tenon construction.
