If you are looking for shoe storage solutions that would be not only functional, but also stylish and unusual, a bench might prove to be a great idea. Perfect for an entryway, benches with storage offer not only a nice place for storing your footwear, but also a very comfortable spot to put them on. So, take a look at these 10 shoe storage benches — perfect solutions for an entryway:
Low standing shoe cabinet
Simple shoe storage cabinet, if made low, can be used as a perfect substitute for a bench. Plus, narrow low standing designs are great for narrow hallways. Sure, a simple cabinet will not be much of a decoration unit, but it can serve the same purpose as a bench.
An antique chest, on the contrary, will be a perfect decorative unit for an entryway. However, this is rather demanding decoration idea that calls for at least traditional setting. After all, you can have a vintage hallway and a hi-tech living room — this would be inconsistent.
Rustic bench with a rack
A rustic bench with a lower shoe rack is another great idea. It looks sweet and down to earth — even though it also calls for a rather specific interior.
A leather ottoman with storage
Another sleek and stylish solution that is perfect for any entryway — no matter which particular trend or style it features. Note, though, that for a piece to last you will have to invest into genuine leather.
A couple of smaller puffs with storage
Instead of an ottoman, it is possible to go with several smaller puffs with storage. The arrangement will give your entryway a homey, welcoming look.
Soft bench with open lower partitions
A bench with a soft cushion and lower box-like partitions is an excellent piece of furniture, suitable both for dressing and for storing a variety of different objects.
Partially closed bench for a more impressive effect
A bench with partially closed lower storage shelves will offer a more interesting approach to decoration. Plus, it will give you a chance to get just a little bit messier when it comes to arranging the shoes.
A simple bench boosted by rattan baskets
Another idea is to go with the simplest bench you can find and use rattan baskets (just keep them underneath the bench) for storing your shoes. Simple, yet efficient — what else could you possibly want?
A foldable bench with lower storage is another sleek idea, perfect for compact entryway.
Fitted corner bench
Yet, one of the best ideas on space efficient storage solutions is a corner cabinet. You can either look for a ready-made piece or go bespoke. Design it in a low, bench like fashion to kill two birds with one stone.
Finally, do not forget that shoe storage benches are not the only options suitable for storing shoes — and neither does the hallway area. There are plenty of other creative ways to store and even display your shoes — this quick guide will offer you more
