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.
Organizing and space-saving is important in every home and living area. A shoe storage bench for the entryway is perfect for this. If there is room in the front hallway, a convenient place to store shoes is right there as close to the front door since shoes are usually the last thing to be put on before leaving the house. With a bench that also stores shoes, this is two pieces of furniture that has been combined into one thus saving crucial space.
A shoe storage bench that closes can be a great place for containing many other items that typically clutter up a home. Have lots of toys all over the house? How about pet items? Maybe you need extra storage for blankets or towels? The possibilities are endless. And of course, you can always use these for storing shoes. Some versions come as stand up cabinets that have hooks for also keeping neat coats, sweaters, jackets and the like. If you are concerned about the odors that at times can accompany shoes, a version that will work very well for you are the ones made of cedar wood. This works great to help absorb any offensive odors.
One can choose a shoe cabinet according to the need and availability of the space in his house. The normal height of a shoe cabinet should be around three feet and it should have a depth of two inches more than the length of the largest shoe used by you or members of your family. You can get a shoe storage cabinet especially built for you according to your specifications and need. They are available with double doors, single door and without doors also and in natural wood colors and white.
If you can afford a professionally installed closet organizer a cubby system is an efficient and effective way to store numerous pairs. Maximize the space between the closet floor and the clothes by making as many slots as possible while still ensuring that shoes of all sizes and shapes will fit in the cubbyholes. To store your footwear successfully you must maximize every possible space including your closet door. There are several styles of over the door shoes storage organizers that secure to a standard closet door. This kind of organizer allows you to store many pairs without infringing on any floor or closet space.
