Ironing boards are necessities in every household. Ironing your clothes keeps them neat and stylish and protects the fabric, making it more resistant to wear, tear, and damage. Getting a high-quality ironing board will change the way you do laundry and keep you looking sharp. Bed Bath & Beyond offers some of the best ironing boards from top brands like Squared Away™.
Different iron board types have varying characteristics and benefits. One popular option is the portable compact ironing board. This option suits regular travelers or those who need ironing flexibility. The reasons behind its high demand are that you can easily fold, carry and set it up in any space. The portable ironing board also offers flexibility in how you use it because you can adjust it and use it while you're seated or standing. The tabletop ironing board is another solid option for people who live in smaller spaces. You can get high-quality and unique designs from Simply Essential™. Some of these boards have dual sides offering two different ironing surfaces for various fabrics. Alternatively, you can opt for wall-fixed ironing boards. This is a modern design usually mounted onto a wall that folds up for convenience and to save space since you can fold it up when it's not in use. You can also fit it within a closet. If you have kids, have the boards fitted at a safe height. Most of these modern boards come with soft, beautiful ironing board covers, a hanging rack, and an iron plate.
When choosing an ironing board, there are several things that you should consider. Always check the dimensions. You will want to ensure that you buy a big enough board to accommodate your clothes and small enough to fit into your space or be packed away conveniently. Generally, an ironing board with 30 to 32 inches in length and 12 inches in width will serve you well. Also, consider the type of iron that you have. For instance, if you have a steam iron, buy an ironing board with a holder that allows steam to pass through. For the tabletop ironing board, check whether it has hooks so that you can hang it behind a door. Also, choose an ironing board with a high-quality cover and pad. Some ironing boards come with padding and covers while you may need to buy them separately for others.
Check the sturdiness and build of the ironing board's material. Read through reviews concerning how durable or sturdy the board is. Check for extra features like a built-in tray to place the iron and protect the surfaces from burns. Another nice feature is rubber feet, which protects your floor and prevents slipping. Go for a board with child locks and a flex guide that keeps the iron cords from trailing on the floor.
The right ironing board creates the difference between laborious chores and quick, easy laundry. It’s therefore important that you choose the best type for your needs. You can get different designs from Bed Bath & Beyond.
