The research aims to solve the space conflict between the development trend of small-sized housing and oversize professional ironing-table with a view of achieving innovative design of multi-functional household ironing-table. The paper discusses how to blend multi-function into the practice of design by taking household as the carrier in combination with the research approach of kansei engineering and evaluation. In terms of technological means, axial flow fan, PTC heating panel and other ironing products are ingeniously included in household products to achieve self- induced draft, drying and other functions. As regard to design method, the prototype is designed and produced through the experiment of two steps and emotional evaluation. Comparative evaluation is performed between the prototype and other household ironing tools, which realizes the significance of multi-functional ironing-table’s ironing effect and the conception of space saving and provides optimized idea for the research of household ironing-table.
