Has anyone here ever used this type of stool for their kitchen? I think of them as "library stools" because that's the only place I've ever seen them.
They even come in all kinds of colors: Kik-Step
I currently have a step stool that folds up and slips between the fridge and the cabinet next to it, but it's pretty beat up (handle broken, one foot missing) and it's kind of a pain to always be hauling it out, especially since when I decide I need it, half the time it's because I have something in my hand I need to put away. I like the idea of having a stool that's out and I can just kick it around to where I need it, but I don't want to find that it's always in the way... I use a stool ALL the time, because I am 5'-0" tall - I couldn't reach the top shelf in the 30" cabinets we just took down, and we're replacing them with 39" cabinets mounted 3" higher on the walls! Agh!
