With so many different types of useful home hardware available, it can be difficult to work out which bits will really be useful to you on a regular basis. Quite often people buy things thinking that they are the smart choice, only to find that they get used once and then either sit in a drawer, or only get used to gather dust in the corner. One exception to this is the folding step stool, which can be used in so many different places around the home for so many different things, not a week will pass where it isn’t called into action.
Depending on what you are going to be using your step stool for, there are different types, each of which has certain benefits. For instance, if you just want something to give you a little extra bit of height to help reach the top shelf in the kitchen cupboard, or to give children a little extra boost so they can reach the bathroom sink, then a plastic, single folding step stool will be the perfect option, as they are small but sturdy and can be folded away to a nearly flat package making them easy to store. If you want something a bit more substantial, say for instance a step ladder that helps you reach the light bulbs when they need changing, or that you can take outside the house to use while watering hanging baskets, then something from the range of small step ladders will be more suited, and you can choose from two, three or even four step step ladders all of which fold away neatly, and most of which are light enough to be carried around the home easily.
Having a set of folding steps in the home means you no longer have to stand on chairs or teeter on the edge of worktops to try and reach the things you want, making day to day tasks around the home not only much easier, but also a whole lot safer.
