Which ironing board?

We need to get a new one (family of four). Am prepared to pay more for a good sturdy one that will last. We don't have a steam generator so would an on board plug socket still be useful or not? What features would be helpful? I always thought ironing board is as ironing board does - but apparently not according to Argos catalogue!

Anyone? Just looking for recommendations really. Vileda, Minky, Brabantia?

My only requirement for an ironing board is that it is high enough. I am 5'8" and most ironing boards make me bend over slightly.

I bought one from Tesco that is extra large and is tall enough for me. It is sooo much easier ironing standing straight.

Ah good point - thanks Steppemum.

Can anyone help re the on board plug socket feature - does anyone have an ironing board with one of these on? Could it still be helpful even if I don't have a steam generator?

I think brabantia always look sturdier.

I never used the on board plug feature. Essentially it's an extension lead cable tied to the board.

You could do that for a few quid down at wilkos.
