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.
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.
