But there is an easy solution. That`s where the shoe storage bench comes in. Shoe storage furniture gives you a place to put your shoes. They help you to eliminate clutter and will reduce, if not eliminate all together, the stress that comes with having to find your shoes at the last minute. Shoe storage benches come in a variety of styles. Most have a hard flat surface where a person can sit while taking off and putting on shoes. Some have open shelves, others have pockets or cubbies for pairs of shoes. Some shoe storage cabinets have hinged tops so everything can be put inside and when closed the shoes are never seen.
If you go with a shoe storage bench in the living room, you probably want to get a model that has a door that opens outward. When the door is closed, your shoe storage area looks just like your average bench and visitors can use it for additional seating when they stop by. No one can even tell that you have your favorite pumps hidden inside. When everyone leaves, you can pop open the door, sit down on the bench and decide which pair of fabulous open toed sandals you`re going to wear to dinner that night. Close the door up and voila! - it`s a bench again.
So, what do you look for in a shoe storage bench? Well, the first thing is the number of cubbies the bench has. You want to purchase benches with as many cubbies as will fit in the space you have in mind, knowing that shoes have a way of multiplying over time. There are two basic types of benches. First, there are those that have cubbies. Think of them as walled off storage lockers laid out in a grid. The second is a bench where the front opens out, revealing either cubbies or wire loops that slip right into the shoe, letting them hang free.
Shoe storage benches, like all other bedroom furniture, can be found in all types of designs and styles, from basic IKEA flat-pack designs to elaborate mahogany pieces, there are shoe storage benches to suit any type of bedroom decor. Many of these shoe benches will also feature extra drawers or storage for different items, and provide excellent space-efficiency when you haven`t got much room to work with. This means that you can use them for storing your other clothing, or perhaps items related to your shoes, such as shoe cleaners. Overall, shoe storage benches are a convenient and organized way to keep your shoes tidy in your bedroom, or in your wardrobe, while not taking away from the amount of free space you have, or the design of the room.
Perhaps that explains the popularity of the shoe storage bench these days. The price of shoes has dropped in recent years, well, at least for the masses as shoe discounters have flooded the market with shoes that are only meant to last a season or two. This has created a real storage conundrum for fashion frenzied home dwellers who have so many shoes they no longer what to do. The good news is, there`s an answer. Shoe benches in every corner of your house, ready, willing and able to make all your fashion dreams come true while keeping your home looking orderly. They are attractively priced, available in an endless array of sizes and styles, and they keep your shoes looking spit-spot day in and day out, free of scuffs, grime, dust and dirt.
