I was recently in the unfortunate position of having to buy a new ironing board. I say “unfortunate” because finding a non-hideous ironing board is surprisingly difficult. Most have covers featuring in-your-face stripes or matronly flowers (Exhibit A ; Exhibit B), and are a real eyesore if not stowed away after each use. So, should you too find yourself in need of an ironing board, here are some decent ones for your consideration:


This no-nonsense board doesn’t feel the need to get all cutesy with its covering, and that’s why I like it. $99.95 from Williams-Sonoma.

Brabantia Ironing Board


The pattern on this is kind of retro and kind of cool. $59.99 from Bed, Bath & Beyond.

Polder Tri-Leg Deluxe Ironing Board


This tabletop board is ideal for those with limited storage space. $14.99 on Amazon.

Whitmor Tabletop Ironing Board


For the serious ironer: the top of this utilitarian-chic console is a permanent ironing surface, with organizational bins below. $69.99.

Leave it to the Amish to produce an ironing board that’s not only made of sturdy wood, but also converts into a step stool and makeshift chair. At $279.99, it’s a bit of an investment, but one that will last.
