Ladders are probably the very last thing that comes across anyone's mind when it comes to home decor. But, take a look at these homes and you'll see ladders that are not only useful, but are also pretty and chic. Even if and when you need to reach high-up in the kitchen, closet or library, you can use them for other things -- as a side table, a rack, even a pretty accessory.

While the old-fashioned metal ladder aboard this yacht has practical applications, it sure is cute. The use of yellow as an accent - seen in the ladder, the painting and a fishing coat - is adorable as well.

A distressed stepping ladder becomes wall decor when installed on a wall. This actually looks like another easy DIY piece, too. Install some chunky wood blocks vertically up the wall alongside the ladder and use those as displays for mini vases or a colorful glass collection.
The great thing about using something as simple as a ladder in your home decor is that it's basically up to you how creative you want to be with it. As you can see, a ladder, while lovely on its own, can also be used for more practical purposes. Either way, it's a chic addition to any home!
