As we mentioned in our previous post, Safe and Fun Stairs for Your Tree House, ship ladders are a stylish option to consider if you are looking for a set of steps that doesn’t take up much space. A great way to enhance the safety of your children’s summer fort, they are also a lovely addition to many interior areas of the home.
A bit steeper than your traditional staircase, ship ladder stairs have an open design and can be enhanced with metal handrails for safety. One of the things we love most about ship ladder stairs is their versatility. The addition of this staircase to your home can allow you an opportunity to make better use of loft areas, attics, high garage shelves and more. If you have a towering space in your home that could use some TLC, a ship ladder is just the place to start.
Take this rustic design for example:
Installed in a Maine cabin, this ship ladder allows homeowners to make use of a cozy loft space, perfect for curling up with a good book or relaxing with a drink after dinner. The addition of sliding wall brackets makes the staircase even more versatile, allowing it to be pushed to the side to open up the entirety of the first floor for the entertaining of guests.
