I love garden stools. They are one of the most versatile pieces of home decor and can be used in every room of your house AND outside too!

White Ceramic Garden Stools

A white ceramic garden stool can do double duty in almost any room of your house. Need a place to rest your drink while sitting in our favorite armchair? Extra seating that can tuck away under a console table when not in use? A surface in your walk-in-shower to rest soaps on? Once you see how versatile this piece is you will surely want more than one.

Colorful Garden Stools

Add a pop of color with functionality and style

Need to brighten up a dull room on a dime? Try a brightly colored garden stool.

These inexpensive pieces can add some functionality - as a side table or extra seating - while adding some needed color and visual interest to your room. Check out the great example pictured here and then see some great picks for colorful garden stools below.

I love how the designer uses the Garden Stool as an additional surface between the sink and toilet. I have done the same thing in my bathroom in order to rest hand towels to make them more accessible to my young children who can't reach the towel bar.

Lets be honest, though. This placement makes the perfect spot to rest ones cell phone while they are attending to more important business.

Garden Stools are an Inexpensive Way to Combat Neutrality

Too much grey and beige got you down? If you are a safe decorator, chances are you have lots of neutrals in your living space, but not much color.

A garden stool like this bright red one from Urban Trends is a great way to add a fun pop of color to your living space without investing much.

Floral Painted Garden Stools

Floral painted garden stools are a decorative accent that work both inside and out. Group several together to form the base for an informal coffee table, like the Contemporary Patio design by Philadelphia Interior Designer Leslie Hayes Interiors or use a single painted stool as a traditional counterpoint in a streamlined, contemporary setting.

However you use them, you can find a wide assortment of painted ceramic garden stools online at These pieces can be had for less than $150 and will make a huge impact in your space.

Metallic garden stools add a dash of glamor anywhere from your patio to your bedroom. One of my favorite applications of these stools - as a towel or loofah stand in your bathroom. Like the one pictured here by New York Interior Designer Marie Burgos Design. They are even being placed inside of larger stall showers as a catch all surface.
