    depends on the style of your house. You could use it as a towel rack, a rack for scarves, or magazines, or hang it and hang pots and pans from it or dish towels

    Lay ladder horizontally ( I have mine braced up about 4’ on each end and hang things e.g. seed basket, recycle containers, mop for drying, jackets/ mitts in winter.

    I think they look great with towels or quilts on the rungs.

    I have a wooden ladder that leans with blankets on it, I also have an old ladder that opens and stands. I have that leaning against a wall with plants.

    I took a piece off of the top of mine and turned it sideways and made a shelf.

    You could lean it against the wall and hang throws or put a coating of clear poly on it and use it for towels in the bathroom.
