Whether you are is vertically challenged or you have high shelving or have children in the house, a step stool is both useful and necessary. Why not hide it in the toe kick of your cabinets? The toe kick is the baseboard at the bottom of your cabinets.  Why is it called a toe kick?  Because you open it by kicking it with your foot. Ta da!  This space is usually  wasted and left as an area for the mice to hang out in but can easily be turned into a slim drawer. You don’t have to bend down to open it, though you do have to bend down to take out the stool! But still, your stool is now always handy and out of sight
