Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

An ironing board is required to tidy up textiles. Its quality and functionality determines how convenient and fast you can iron fabrics and how good the result will be.

Today the ironing board is a functional device with additional gadgets: cord holders, built-in sockets with an extension cord, shelves, hangers and hooks. All of them are designed to make the process of laundry care more convenient and faster.

The portal's experts studied the ironing board market and user reviews, on the basis of which they made a rating of the most popular and interesting models in several nominations.

Ironing board recommendations

You can get lost in the range of ironing boards – there are many models on the market with different configurations from domestic and foreign manufacturers. We offer several recommendations from the experts of the portal for the right choice:

  1. Size matters. Do you have a big family and always have a lot of things to iron? The big board is the right decision. There are many shirts and dresses with sleeves – you cannot do without a special platform in the package.

  2. A linen rack is a useful addition to your ironing board and helps to organize your workspace. If there is a place to put things in the room where ironing takes place, the component may not be useful.

  3. The iron platform is an important addition to the board, which needs to be approached especially carefully. If there are small children or people with disabilities in the house, we recommend choosing a board with a protective side or iron lock to prevent it from falling.

  4. The plugged cable allows you to use the board in any room, regardless of the proximity of the power source. The cable holder is generally a useful device that will prevent the wire from getting tangled.

  5. For a small apartment, you can look at folding or sliding table floats, as well as built-in models.

  6. For use with a steam generator, it is impractical to purchase an ordinary ironing board, take a special one – its functions facilitate the use of the electrical appliance, make the process faster and more enjoyable.
