Small Wooden Stools With Storage

Sand & Stable™

Handmade and handcrafted, these nested small wooden stools add a rustic touch to your home. They have linen seat cushions, metal reinforced edges, and sides made with wooden slats that mimic a crate.

Designer Advice:

A small wooden stool with storage is a terrific option if you need a place to store things. Storage stools give you a place to sit and a place to store blankets, pillows, slippers, and scarves. Their heavy and solid appearance is a drawback to some home styles, however, it isn't a problem for rustic, lodge, and farmhouse styles.

Small wood stools with long seats are terrific to use in entryways, hallways, and bathrooms. You can sit on them as you get dressed in the bathroom or as you put on your shoes near your coat closet. Because they are longer than other small stools, they will take up more space.

Designer Advice:

A small rocking stool can replace a large rocking chair and create more space in a room. These types of stools are great to use in gardens as they rock forward for planting and rock backward for you to grab your gardening tools. Because they rock, they are ideal for sitting and not so much for table or display usage.

Buying Guide

Apart from being elegant, modern, and lightweight, small wooden stools let a space breathe due to their small size. You’ll be able to add up to four small wooden stools within a tight space. The extra seating isn’t just extremely functional; it’s also capable of enhancing a living space and bring about beautiful design elements to your home.

We want your shopping experience to be both easy and enjoyable. Follow the tips we’ve listed below as they will ensure you find the best small wooden stools and allow you to order with confidence.

Measure your counter or table’s height. If possible, measure twice so you can determine the right height for your small wooden stools. A kitchen table often stands anywhere between 28 and 30 inches. If your table's height is within that range, you will need a small wooden stool that's 17 to 18 inches high.

For counters, they are anywhere between 35 to 36 inches in length. Stools with a height of 24 to 26 inches would prove to work best with such counter heights.

If you are planning to purchase more than one stool, figure out the number of stools you require. It's actually pretty simple. Just follow the standard within the industry, which is to leave at least 26 inches in between each wooden stool. The space is necessary for eating, drinking, and socializing in a comfortable manner.

Your choice of the best material for your stool’s construction will often depend on your aesthetic goals and the intended use of the stools. Different types of woods offer different levels of durability and attractiveness. The type of wood used in making a stool will also determine the chair’s price.

  • Beech is a type of hardwood that’s capable of bending easily. It's often used on more expensive stools as it stains well and it’s made to mimic the look of maple, cherry, and mahogany (more expensive types of wood). It's relatively inexpensive even when it’s solid and heavy.
  • Birch, on the other hand, is commonly used for the construction of small wooden stools as the material is light-colored with a similar grain as maple. Its grain is beautiful, but it’s pretty expensive.
  • Butternut is a type of hardwood that’s also called as white walnut. Its grain is leafy and pronounced. It's a material that’s a favorite among furniture makers as it’s easy to manipulate and work with. It is, however, expensive.
  • Hickory, mahogany, and maple are types of wood that are strong, dense, and capable of aging well. Their downside is they are expensive, which translates to a costlier small wooden stool.

If you opt for a cushioned seat, you’ll be able to sit on the stools for an extended period of time as cushioning offers the most comfort. The most common materials used in the upholstery of wooden stools are vinyl, plastic, polyester, and leather. They’re easy to clean and they can add character to wooden stools.
