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. Neither version is preferable over the other. It really depends on your personal preferences and the amount of space you have available.
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 we should all keep in mind that we should still include the look and color of the stand with the other entryway furniture. It is still best to have a unified theme within the entryway area. We should ensure if there is harmony among the decors and furniture. But it is safe to place the stand in the corner so it won′t contrast the rest of the furnishings. One of the perfect examples of umbrella stand is the Butler Specialty Furniture. It is definitely robust and it goes well with the other furniture.
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.
Many people have more shoes than they need. And like clothes, many pairs are hardly ever worn and only take up valuable space. Take all you shoes out and line them up in another room. Sort them according to category. Ask yourself how many shoes you really need for each category. Be brave and get rid of those pairs that are excessive. When putting back in your closet keep them organized by category.
Many people search for ideas to store their shoes when they run out of space in the closet or under the bed. There are hangers that have slots for shoes and other methods, but none of these are as stylish and useful as shoe storage benches. Because of the points discussed above, the best option for those looking for a simple and effective solution for storing shoes in the entryway of their home while keeping a clean look and being useful is a shoe storage bench with seat and sliding doors.
Not sure here I learned this but I will tell you it works wonderfully well, especially if you have kids. Go out and get a few small sturdy boxes or even milk crates (better yet) if available. Make a rule that everything transported, or used or finished within the car (trash included) gets put in one of the storage bins. Make another rule that whenever anyone leaves the car they have to bring the bins into the house and do something with the contents. Try it and see if it helps to keep the inside of your car cleaner.
The next style you could find would be a shoe bench with cubbyhole style compartments. Depending on the size of the bench you should be able to hold more shoes in a cubby. Once again you can see all your shoes at a glance for easy finding. If you have the budget and the room, then you can get one with storage under a lift up seat. These will typically come with a padded seating area and a deep storage area. With this type of storage you could use it for boots and larger footwear.
