Shoes. Who doesn`t love them? Even though we have only two feet and can only wear one pair of shoes at a time, we have an endless number of different occasions that require different shoes, from running shoes and golf shoes to sandals for the beach, boots for winter and heels in every color and height imaginable - just because. But where do you store all these shoes? As you know, shoes don`t like to be stored next to each other, as the various design details on a fairly inexpensive shoe can end up destroying a brand new pair of Italian leather pumps you just picked up at Zappos.

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.
