A Hallway Bench Has Many Uses
One of the things that many people choose to buy from us at Footstools & More is a hallway bench. It can have so many possible uses.

You might find it very useful in the living room where you have a bay window. It is ideal for sitting on and looking out of the window and watching the world go by. Or watching the birds come and go in your front garden.

Footstools Are Back In Fashion With A Bang!

Footstools Are Back In Fashion With A Bang!
If you go back 60 or 70 years you will find that almost every household had a footstool or two, but for some reason, towards the end of the last century, they went somewhat out of fashion. Maybe it was the younger people who were born in the 1960’s, after which came the era of mods and rockers.

Make More Use Of the Space That Your Footstool Takes Up

Make More Use Of the Space That Your Footstool Takes Up
It makes a lot of sense to have a footstool in your living room because there is a great sense of peace when you have been out at work all day – especially if the boss has been grouchy – because when you finally get home, after all that hacking through the traffic, you can slump down on your sofa and put your feet up. It is just ten minutes of pure heaven, even if you have to get up afterwards and put the kettle on / pour a large G&T / or just feed the cat.

A Massive Selection Of Fabric Footstools

A Massive Selection Of Fabric Footstools
When you spend all day at work in an office, or anywhere else for that matter, poring over a computer, it can cause issues with your legs. The same thing can happen if you spend a long time standing – say working in a retail shop. This can cause swelling of the ankles and may even be painful. Your veins have to work extra hard in order to pump the blood back to your heart, and so elevating your legs can help to reduce the pressure on them.

A Pouffe Can Have Many Different Uses

A Pouffe Can Have Many Different Uses
If you want a footstool that does not take up a lot of space in the room, why not consider a pouffe? If you check the dictionary, a pouffe is described as a thick cushion used as a seat, and you can certainly use our pouffes to sit on. However, they also make an ideal resting place for the feet for one person, unlike an ottoman or bench stool which can easily have space for two people and often three.

The Birth Of The Ottoman

The Birth Of The Ottoman
Why is an ottoman footstool so called? Back in the day, Istanbul in Turkey was called Constantinople and was the centre of the Ottoman Empire which controlled huge amounts of land around the Mediterranean Basin. In those days, the main piece of residential seating was a low wooden platform which was piled high with cushions.

A Storage Footstool Has Many Uses

A Storage Footstool Has Many Uses
We have said it before, but it is worth repeating. The fact is that when you have a footstool it does take up a certain amount of space in the room. Just how much space it takes up will depend upon how large it is. If you want a footstool that is big enough for two so that you and your partner can sit and watch TV together, then your footstool will obviously be larger than if you have something smaller like a pouffe.

Two Ways To Buy A Footstool For Your Home

Two Ways To Buy A Footstool For Your Home
