Floor Standing Ironing Board: Perhaps the most common variety, a floor standing ironing board comes with a base and a frame and has an adjustable height. It is portable and can easily be shifted from one room to another. Some floor standing boards come packed with additional features like an iron stand and a rack for hanging clothes. If you are planning to create a fixed ironing spot at your home, this is your best option. The legs of the ironing board are foldable, making it easier to store when not in use.
