Alternative Footstool Uses
A footstool can be used as a softer alternative to a coffee table. Use it as a different option to a wooden table in your sitting room to give a gentle and cosier scheme. Additionally, they are a practical choice if you have children running around! Choose one with a flat and firm top that will work like a table to display books, tea trays and trinkets such as the Bowmont Pheasant Mya footstool, which has a quirky animal pattern that will add a talking point to any room.
Similarly, substitute the small side tables that may feel bulky within your home with a small footstool that has a drum or square shape. Completely versatile and portable; they can be used around the house and can even be used as an extra seat. Try the Voyage Hedgerow Linen Monty footstool for a gentle touch of colour and pattern.
It is becoming increasingly popular to add soft furnishings into bathrooms as well; it’s a great way to substitute all the angular and hard surfaces. The bathroom is a place to relax and pamper yourself so why not use a footstool as a surface to hold a tray with scented candles and towels. Choose a practical fabric such as wool; this will create an effective contrast with the other textures within the room.
