Types of Foot Stools

Leather Footstool

No matter where you put it, a leather footstool is a classic piece of furniture that adds style and sophistication to any room. Its timeless design and sturdy construction make it a popular choice for both home and office settings. Leather can come in many different shapes and sizes, so you can find one that fits your needs and taste. Here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for a leather footstool.

Consider the size of the item. You'll want to make sure it's not too big or too small for your office space! Think about the shape of the object! Some are round, while others are more rectangular. 

Choose the one that you think will look best in your space.

Pay attention to the color of the leather. You can find footstools made from many different leather colors such as tan brown, black, gold, pink, and even white, so pick the one that best matches your décor. 

 Wooden Footstools

Just as the name says, these are predominantly made of wood. You can find ones that are 100% timber in construction, or more commonly ones that have fabric such as cotton or velvet lining over a padded top that is framed with a timber structure or base. 

Wood makes an excellent choice for building a footstool as it offers good structural integrity allowing them to be used as seats as well. 

Outdoor footstools

These are made from weatherproof materials such as plastic or polyester as they need to be able to withstand the elements. Leather and fabrics dont make good choices for these as they will age very poorly in the sun and the wet weather. That said, you can use leather, wood or fabric footstools in an outdoor setting as long as they are not exposed to the weather, for example on decks under a patio. 

Footstools with storage

Footstools with storage come with the added benefit of being able to store some of your things. Ideal for living rooms or kids rooms, they make a great place to store an extra cushion, throw or blanket. These ones come in many colors, but some of the most common are grey and black design choices and they can often be finished in stunning velvet for a really soft comforting look. 

There are a few other types of footstools that are worth mentioning such as boucle, rattan (which is terribly expensive and fragile) and velvet footstools. Sometimes there can even be adjustable ones, but these are quite rare and wont have as long a lifespan as they have moving mechanical parts. 

Can I sit on a footstool? 

Yes, you can however you will want to make sure the footstool is well-made. Check for things like sturdy construction and reinforced stitching. You want a footstool that wont collapse under the weight of sitting on it.
