Cooking stools with backs give you more opportunity to relax without the risk of falling off of your stool. A spring-action lock keeps the metal frame locked in place so there’s no risk of instability.

Buying Guide

The first thing you should consider when choosing a folding kitchen stool is its material. This will determine how heavy the chair is, how easy it is to put away, and how durable it is. If you’re going to use your folding stool to reach items in your high kitchen cabinets, it’s best to pick a design that features a wooden and/or metal construction. Wood and metal stools come in a myriad of designs, are stylish yet functional, and can withstand the rigors of daily use.

On the other hand, plastic folding kitchen stools are lightweight, easy to move around, and can easily be stored in-between furniture. A padded seat and backrest may come in handy if you want to comfortably sit down while you wait for your meal to finish cooking. You should also consider the folding stool’s weight capacity before making any purchase. You’ll want to make sure that it won’t break apart when you or other people use it. In terms of aesthetics, you can either select a color and style that’ll complement your kitchen decor or go bold with a colorful design to add a fun touch to the room.

Knowing where to best store your folding kitchen stools will save you time and inconvenience. If you have a shed or barn on your property, these structures would be ideal for folding stool storage. This way, they remain out of sight and don't take up unnecessary space when not in use.

Hanging your folding stools on the wall is another great idea to free up floor space while using your folding stools as a form of wall decor. Folding chair storage bags are another alternative if you plan on keeping your folding stools outdoors and free from animals and pests.

If you have a workroom or shed, consider keeping your folding stools under work benches or on shelves. Basements, attics and closets also make great spaces to store folding stools out of sight when not in use.
