Styling a Custom Footstool
There are many places to put a footstool, some of which you may not have considered. It makes a handy replacement for a coffee table, especially in smaller spaces. Pair one with a recliner for luxurious rest and relaxation. When you want to fully recline you can move the footstool to the side of your chair to use as a side table. Place two side-by-side at the foot of your bed, making a decorative place to sit and somewhere to take off your shoes. A custom footstool can add storage to tight spaces, and it can add seating when you're entertaining, then be stashed in a corner.
Selecting the Best Footstool for You
There are a few factors to consider when choosing the right footstool for your needs. For a storage bench, you'll want upholstery that is particularly durable, so it stands up to the wear of lifting the lid frequently. A tufted style in twill or another long-fiber fabric is a long-wearing look. It should also be versatile, so you can move it to different areas of your home during design refreshes. Lean towards a more neutral color that will match the décor across your home.
If your home has a lot of leather furniture, then a leather footstool will fit in seamlessly. Leather is also an excellent choice if you have kids or pets because it is great at resisting stains and snags. For a home that has a lot of fabric upholstered furniture, accent it with a footrest that has strong wood elements.
