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.

Ideally, you should raise your feet above your heart level for 20 minutes or so but putting your feet up on a footstool will also help. So, having a footstool doesn’t just make your feet feel more comfortable, but helps to keep you healthy as well.

You Can Do Many Things With A Footstool

Not only that, but there are so many things that you can do with a footstool apart from putting your feet up. You can use them as extra seating when you have visitors to your home, whether it’s for a birthday party or a dinner. You can have your footstool made with a lid so that it becomes a storage box, and this is the perfect place to hide away all the bits and pieces that you need in the living room – the TV remote, knitting, papers, magazines, playing cards, and even one of those pre-mixed cans of G & T if that’s your fancy.

Our footstools can be made in a choice of hundreds of different fabrics. Many people like to have a leather footstool, which can be a good idea if you have dogs or cats - or for that matter kids – because they are very easy to clean. But you can also have one of our fabric footstools in an almost endless choice of different fabrics – patterned, plain, textured, velvet – you name it.

We have so many different fabrics to choose from that it is pretty much the case that we never make two footstools that are exactly the same. We have a huge choice of different designs of footstools anyway, but when you add in the selection of fabrics, your final choice means that almost certainly your footstool will be unique to you.

If you don’t find anything you like in our massive fabric selection that’s no problem either. You can buy your own fabric and send it to us, and we will use that to make your footstool for you.
