Ultraslim Aluminum Step Stools from Williams-Sonoma

In small kitchens, often the best way to make more room is to go up! High shelves, tall cabinets — they are common storage solutions in small spaces. But then you need a way to reach up there, and unless you have the luxury of a sliding ladder, you probably need a step stool. But where to store a stool in said tiny kitchen? Enter this ultra, ultra slim stool.

These ultraslim stools from Williams-Sonoma are incredibly slim — less than 2 inches deep when closed. That means they can slide between the fridge and cabinet, or in the back of a coat closet. They are also lightweight, yet they support up to 220 pounds. The reviews at Williams-Sonoma are uniformly positive; one customer calls it, "exceptionally stable," even though it is so small and lightweight.

The only drawback to these stools is the price. At over $100 a pop they are not cheap. But if you have a very small kitchen with a large amount of storage over your head, it might be a worthwhile investment.

Find them: Ultraslim Aluminum Step Stools, $119.95 and $139.95 at Williams-Sonoma
