This past weekend my family and I hopped on a plane and traveled up north for a cousin’s wedding. The tough part about traveling for an event is the formal attire also making the trip. When we arrived at the hotel and unpacked our suitcases, we inevitably found wrinkled jackets and creased dress shirts. My husband (being the man that he is) set out to find the provided iron and ironing board in the hotel closet. But his led to another inevitable situation: Three days in a tiny hotel suite with four people and one, full-sized ironing board. Talk about tight quarters!
Full size ironing boards are a nice utensil for those lucky enough to have room for them. They’re also a requirement for anyone who uses an ironing board for large items such as quilting and sewing materials. But for the rest of us…we folks with crammed closets, stuffed laundry rooms, and tiny storage nooks, it’s hard to justify that clunky ironing board. Fortunately, Central Vacuum Stores is ready with a several space-saving options.
Here are a couple of choices that are great for small spaces like condos, bungalows, or vacation homes. You’ll also love the non-permanence of these solutions.
A classic option is a table-top ironing board. Like the one pictured here from Household Essentials, a table top ironing board is both compact and effective. This little gem is great for everyday jobs or even the occasional craft project.
What I love most about the Household Essential Table Top Ironing Board 131210 is the sliding iron rest at the rear. Between tasks, set your hot iron face down on the metal tray for a safe, temporary resting place. It also adds some extra length in case you’re working with a larger piece of fabric.
Plus, the leg base acts as a hook so the 13120 can be hung for easier storage!
