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.
Utility is another thing that should be considered when choosing all-in-one solutions for anything. A shoe storage bench with seat displays this simply by its name. It not only stores your tennis shoes, high heels and flip flops, but it provides a convenient place to put the shoes on in the morning and take them off in the evening. A nice wooden bench can add a nice classic look or maybe go for a rustic stain for a vintage look.
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.
Some people don`t think to try a shoe storage bench because of the amount of space they believe it will take up, but shoe storage benches can come in all manner of shapes and sizes. Even if you`re working with a limited space, there`s probably a shoe bench out there that will suit you. Because these shoe storage benches have multiple layers of shoe compartments they can easily be scaled up or down to give you the maximum storage space with the room you have to work with.
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.
