Shoe storage entryway bench is a compact and cost-effective solution, which helps you organize your shoes and boots and rid your hallway from mess and clutter. Typically, it features a tier or a drawer for shoe storage and a seat for conveniently putting shoes on. Of course, if your budget and hallway dimensions allow you, you can opt for more complex arrangements, such as shoe storage cabinets, or complete hallway furniture sets . However, if you are looking for something simple and practical, entryway benches are certainly way to go. There are several basic types of shoe storage entryway benches, and, for your convenience, here`s a brief outline of the most common types.
Wooden entryway benches
Shoe storage entryway bench made from wood will integrate seamlessly into classic, country and rustic interiors. All in all, wooden entryway furniture may be made from natural or reclaimed wood (“reclaimed” meaning that which has previously been in use), the latter being almost as durable as solid wood, but by far less expensive. In terms of durability, it`s best to opt for oak wood; less pricey options include pine, walnut and birch. The pro`s of a wooden shoe storage entryway bench are obvious – but there`s also the downside: wooden entryway benches with upholstered seats are virtually impossible to come across.
Metal entryway benches
Such benches may appear simple-looking and even boring, but are, nevertheless, perfect for modern minimalistic interiors. A typical metal shoe storage entryway bench may or may not have chrome finish, but is easily washable and requires almost zero maintenance, which is the obvious benefit. A lot of such benches available in stores also feature soft upholstered seats; moreover, there are also extending options, in case you want to invite your friends over and need extra shoe storage space.
Wood and chrome entryway benches
Some modern manufacturers offer exquisitely stylish shoe storage entryway benches made from combination of chrome and wood. Such construction often features a chrome shelf within a wooden frame and integrates ease in maintenance and great aesthetics. Available in light and dark brown, such arrangements are great for contemporary interiors and are extremely functional and practical. Chrome shelf is easily washable, while wooden bench creates an expensive, classy look. Some of these benches feature a large drawer for shoe storage in combination with a metal shoe rack and are extremely functional and comfortable – apart from an elegant and stylish look.
You may also opt for a simple shoe rack, which normally has more storage capacity, but is not as comfortable as an entryway bench – you will have to get a separate stool for your hallway to be able to sit down as you put your shoes or boots on. Whichever you prefer, it is always better to shop for a shoe storage entryway bench in big furniture stores. If you live in the UK, you may want to consider Furniture in Fashion .
