One of the things that many homes do not have is a footstool. Quite why this should be is something of a puzzle to us at Footstools & More because a footstool has the great advantage of making you more comfortable when you relax and watch TV, read a book, do your knitting, or whatever.

There are also health benefits to using a footstool because putting your feet up will improve blood circulation. When you sit for long periods of time, your circulation slows down. A footstool can also help to reduce back tension because it takes the load off your legs.

But it’s not just comfort and health benefits that you can get with a footstool. You can use it for putting a tray with tea/coffee/brandy glasses/name your own poison on it. You can also use it for putting a vase of flowers on when you are not putting your feet on it during the day.

When you have guests around for a dinner party and you simply do not have enough chairs, they can sit on it. A large square or oblong footstool can easily seat two.

If you have an ottoman, which is basically just a footstool with a lid, you can use it for storing all sorts of things – CDs, DVDs, books, magazines, kids’ toys, a laptop, board games – you name it. All out of the way and to hand when you need them, but not cluttering up the room when you don’t.

At Footstools & More you can order your footstool online and we will make it for you to your own specification. We have a huge choice of different materials for finishing your footstool, so you can buy large fabric footstools online, or have them finished in leather or velvets, patterned, plain, buttoned, deep buttoned, and so on. Our footstools are also available with legs or without legs, and if you choose to have legs they can be in a choice of different materials – wood, metal, etc., – and a range of different styles, such as modern or traditional, with castors, without castors, and so on.
