Fold it into a kitchen drawer. If you usually iron in the kitchen, you probably have to wrestle your ironing board out of a hallway closet, drag it into the kitchen, and then set it up using valuable floor space and presenting a trip hazard for everyone who walks by.This solution is satisfyingly space-efficient since the board folds in half to tuck into a drawer underneath the counter. It also dispenses with those tricky foldout metal legs.If you’re remodeling your kitchen or utility room and like this idea, talk to your kitchen designer about including one in your space.Find a kitchen designer near you
If you don’t have the wall space available for a wall-mounted or recessed ironing center, consider one that’s drawer-recessed. The Ironfix by Hafele, shown here, fits into a 24-inch-wide, 14-inch-deep space and, once extended, rotates 180 degrees. Two cons are that you’ll still need to store your iron somewhere, and the drawer unit will need to be installed near an outlet. Also, you’ll need to be content with the ironing board’s height, which will be close to 35 inches if installed in a standard-height cabinet.
Instead of wrestling the ironing board out of the closet whenever you need to touch up a shirt, get one of these nifty folding versions that fit into — guess what? — a drawer.
