Best Extra Wide Ironing Board

What do you use for ironing your fabric or clothing? The good old tables?

You need to dump those and use the right ironing board.

Let your back and spine thank you with any of these adjustable ironing boards I’ve collected.

I’ve considered height adjustment, stability, safety and other features to arrive at the top 5.

Here are the top-rated extra wide ironing boards available for 2018:

  1. Bartnelli Extra Wide Ironing Board

Inject luxury, convenience, strength, and style into your workshop with this extra wide ironing board. You are making the right investment and a value for every buck with Bartnelli Ironing board.

Even if you are always working on a large-scale project, the 51 by 19 inches ironing board has enough room to accommodate your needs. No matter what you are into; quilting, sewing and just regular ironing, you have in your possession the right board.

Bartnelli has a 100% cotton as the padding of the board cover. This ensures your cloth doesn’t stick to the board and there’s enough cushioning from the foam. Being an adjustable ironing board, your height is of no importance. You can always tweak it to the desired height.

The Bartnelli ironing board can always be folded away when you not in need of it. After every ironing and steaming, the hanging rail is reliable and strong to hold the ironed material. Don’t be worried about rusting of the iron, it’s made from anti-corrosion metal.

On the negative side

There are issues with the hinges or crews of this board. My opinions are that it’s few to hold this large board.  Also, the distance between the table and board is maybe too large. This May trap the cable of your pressing, sewing or quilting iron 

The pros

Good choice of color (aesthetic) for the board, luxurious in looks, adjustable height, very extra wide and large area for ironing.

Compared to others on this list the pros of this wide ironing board outweigh its cons. Quite a sturdy board that will hardly wobble or trip over.

  1. Mabel Home Extra-Wide Ironing Pro Board

Not so many extra-wide ironing boards come with patented designs, this one does. The retractable shoulder wings of this ironing board make ironing of shirt shoulders and pillowcases a breeze.

Almost every extra wide ironing board has 100% cotton surface but only a few like Mabel has an extra cover. Attached to the side of the ironing board is a heat resistant support tray that holds your iron and steaming machine.

For enhanced stability, the safety locking system makes step-up, mobility and take down an easy process. For added stability and sturdiness, the metal frame is powder coated. There’s also a transport lock that keeps the ironing board as one during mobility.

When ironing, just ensure the safety lock is in place to prevent accidental collapse of the ironing board. The height is also adjustable to 6 different positions.

The other tray is a limitation, quite unnecessary as it largely goes unused. If this has translated to more padding, it would have been more appreciated since the board its self is quite thin. 

The size, extra cover, and 6 flexible adjustable height make it stands out. Mabel ironing board is ideal for large quilting or industrial use.

The ironing area stands at 48 by 18 inches, quite spacious enough to even accommodate your beddings. You can also adjust your ironing board from between 30 to 38 inches. The ironing frame is almost an inch thick giving it a heaviness that ensures sturdiness.

With the safety child locks, your toddlers and kids are safe as the ironing board will never collapse and injure them. The board is built to have both a stable and light look, for your blouses and shirts.

Place your iron on the heat-resistant protective strips that ensure neither your board nor the iron is damaged. The cover of the surface also has a tensioner that keeps it smoother.

On the downside, what is lacking in this ironing board is a cushioned padding, you may end up buying an extra padding cover.

No matter how tall or short you are, the adjustable height of the ironing board gives you an optimal height for usage. There’s enough time to iron a lot of clothing at once, without needing to reposition the fabric.

On the surface of the ironing board, there’s a cord binder and a stretch system. The four strong legs carry the frame on both carpeted and hard floors. Trust the non-slip caps of the feet, with no movement on the floor.

There are two safety locks on the ironing board; a transport safety lock and a child safety lock. During transportation and storage, you are sure that the ironing board will stay in place.

Only a few weaknesses. Ironing sleeves are quite a difficult task in the absence of an edge and the cover prevents it from being firm.
