Padded Step Stools

For standing or sitting, padded step stools give you comfort where you need it most; the feet and fanny. And they also give added traction when climbing, so you don't have an accidental slip. Every step is padded, so feel free to grab that item off that high shelf, then take a seat on the top step and read the instructions on the box or can. Great for pantries.

What types of step stools are there?

Your choice when shopping for a step stool will be between folded and molded designs. You will need to think about where you are going to store your step stool.

The material of padded step stools will depend on what you are going to use it for. Step stool materials include:

Your step stool should suit your requirements and specifications; therefore, it is essential that you choose a padded step stool with the appropriate height that will be safe and effective.

  • One-step: For the items that you just need to reach up and grab quickly such as getting a glass out of a cupboard.
  • Two-steps: Great for tasks such as overhead repairs, filing, and stocking shelves.
  • Three steps: Work well for maintenance jobs such as making repairs, window washing, and painting.

How much weight should a step stool hold?

Your padded step stool should be able to comfortably hold the weight of the person using it and their tools. The manufacturer's instructions will display the maximum weight allowance for the step stool. It is important that you do not exceed the weight allowance to avoid injury.

What additional features to look for in padded step stools?

Once you have decided on the type of step stool you are going to get regarding size and style, you might also want to think about additional features such as:

  • Wheels for easy maneuvering
  • Handles for easy carrying
  • Platforms to rest your tools on.
  • There are small step stools that you can attach to a chair and use as a footrest.

What different styles of step stools are there?

Although a step stool is not exactly a part of the furniture, you will get it out when you need to use it, some people will still want it to match the décor in their home. There is a wide range of styles, designs, and colors for you to choose from including:

  • Floral
  • Block colors
