We all know that a ladder is an incredibly practical and useful tool for getting jobs done around the house. But have you ever thought about using ladders as decor

In this blog, we'll talk you through 5 inspiring ideas for using a ladder as decor. Whether it be a temporary or permanent fixture in your home, these ladder decor ideas will definitely bring something unique and distinctive your space.


1. Make a Blanket Ladder

If you're a bit strapped for space, you could use your old ladder as storage for blankets, throws or towels. This ladder decor idea could work brilliantly in a bathroom, bedroom, or any communal area such as a living room. 

What's great about this idea is that you can store your blankets or towels vertically, saving you some precious floor space. Also, it looks great! It's a very minimalistic concept that fits in well with hygge-like aesthetics.


2. Create a Budget Friendly Centrepiece

If you have an event coming up and you need to deck out your venue, simply repurpose your step ladder into an event centrepiece. Whether you decide to hang images, fairy lights, flowers, or bunting, a decorative ladder can provide your venue with a statement centrepiece that will be hard for any of your guests to ignore.

You could even turn your ladder into a sweetie stall using attachable baskets and hooks to make your event even more delightful!


3. Turn it Into a Plant Stand

Plants are an essential part of most modern homes. After all, they provide us with a variety of health benefits - physically and mentally! They're also wonderful to look at and help to create a serene space within any home.

You could use your ladder as a plant stand to give your plants the flashy display they deserve. If you have a platform step ladder, there's even space to hold other gardening essentials such as a watering can or some small pruning scissors.


4. Use Your Ladder for Storage

Ladders are great space-savers - especially if you get a little bit creative! If you have a pole ladder that you no longer use or need, why not repurpose it as a storage solution? 

In the image above, you can see a ladder has been repurposed to store items off of the floor. You could mount your ladder to the ceiling to create a clothes drying area, an area to store your shoes, or even an area to hang pots and pans.


5. Add Seasonal Decorations

Why not give your ladder a seasonal purpose? For instance, you could decorate your ladder with fairy lights and accessories for Christmas, like in the image above to use your ladder as a decoration.

You could also do the same for Halloween, and for birthdays, or any other holiday that you wish to celebrate. A seasonally decorated ladder will be a great eye-catcher for passers by, especially if you want to share the holiday joy and spirit.
