Wooden Folding Step Stools

Buy the best wooden folding step stools selected and recommended by interior designers. By Emily Hilton.

Unlike plastic or plain metal models, wooden folding step stools can be a more decorative choice as well as a functional one. You can even pick them in one of your existing finishes to further reinforce a sense of cohesiveness in your kitchen or wherever you’re planning on storing them. Have a good think regarding the height that you want to be able to reach before choosing a specific model, and measure this distance if you can do so safely.

Description

This double folding step stool made of wood in an antique walnut finish can be a bold statement thanks to its quirky design, consisting of a smaller step that is folded upside down.

Designer Advice

The wooden finish is especially ideal in modern rooms. However, be sure to keep its size in mind: unlike traditional folding models, this set is 13.78” in width even when the smallest step is folded away, so it’d only make sense to purchase it for large rooms where storage isn’t an issue.

KINGBO

Description

Available in black, white or nut brown, this wooden folding step stool is 26” high when open, and yet it only measures 3.5” in width once it’s folded, so you can easily slide it between a cupboard and the wall.

Designer Advice

Three-step stools are a wise choice if you’re after a small ladder to reach both low and high places depending on the occasion, from the top of that shelf to the surface above your kitchen cupboards.

Description

This 5-step folding stool is a magnificent example of made in Italy design. While the upper platform reaches 43” and includes an additional surface to hold on to at 71.5”, the folded width is only 5”, so it’s still pretty easy to store.

Designer Advice

This space-saving model is ideal if you need a few more steps than what traditional folding stools offer but don’t feel too comfortable climbing on ladders. As for its finish, it’s destined to become a beautiful accent in most modern settings.

Description

This single step will add 8.85” to your usual height whenever needed, and it still measures under 12” when folded. It also has some non-skid pads on top for extra safety.

Designer Advice

A small step is an even more portable choice that would probably make more sense if you only need to reach some slightly higher spots or if you’re already quite tall yourself. The light-colored finish of this wooden model makes it a perfect option in contemporary or Scandinavian kitchens and settings, too.

Threflyoo

Description

While it’s also available in a few more finishes and as a three-step model, this stool with two steps stands out thanks to its white design. Plus, it’s just under 19” in height.

Designer Advice

The white finish is a natural match for shabby chic decors, but we also recommend it if that area already feels a bit cramped: much like lighter wood finishes, white can help you make a corner look airier, whereas darker colors and wood would run the risk of looking more crowded.

Symple Stuff

Description

Consisting of four steps and an innovative design, this wooden folding step stool is also a chair. It’s made of reliable beechwood in a cherry finish. As well as the usual anti-slip steps, it even includes a safety system that stops the ladder from closing when it’s open.

Designer Advice

Because you can just as easily use it as a chair, this stool is a game-changing solution in smaller settings and especially spare rooms. However, keep in mind that, while narrow, it’s fairly tall when folded (37”), so consider storing it behind a door.

Description

Consisting of woodgrain aluminum, this folding step stool is really lightweight (only 4.85lb) and easy to carry. It also features a practical handgrip, an oversized top platform, and safety latch registers for added security.

Designer Advice

We recommend choosing this model if you’re already planning on using your new folding step stool to reach different spots in your house rather than in a specific room, from your kitchen to the backyard.

Description

This white folding step stool is a beautiful eco-friendly choice made with reclaimed wood. It features slip-resistant steps in a design that makes it easier to keep your balance and that folds down to 15” in depth.

Designer Advice

Given its delightfully traditional feel, this stool can also be used as a decorative piece, perhaps to showcase a few houseplants or items. Definitely a handy compromise if you think you’re only going to use it as an actual stool from time to time!
