At Home from Home we stock a wide range of second hand furniture for everyone’s comfort. After doing some online research we have discovered some useful tips on what to consider when buying a second hand footstool.
A second hand footstool is a simple piece of furniture used to rest one’s feet. However, it can serve other purposes as well. The first thing to consider when buying a footstool is its function. Determining the purpose of your footstool will help you decide the scale and style, the type of construction, and the materials that will make the best footstool for your space.
Style is also an important part of choosing a second hand footstool, since you will want the piece to compliment the rest of your decor. Will a boxy footstool that is flush with the ground coordinate better with the clean lines of your existing furniture, or is your style more traditional, making a footstool with carved legs a better choice? An upholstered footstool, usually called an ottoman, may be a great way to add softness, texture, or color to your design plan.
When selecting a second hand footstool it is a good idea to apply pressure to it or to sit down on it to make sure it is sturdy. Don’t forget to measure the width of the footstool to make sure it won’t be too large and feel awkward in your space. Measure the height as well to ensure that your feet will rest comfortably when sitting on your chair or sofa.
