Child Storage Bench Seat – Who doesn’t love them? Even though we’ve only two feet and can only wear 1 pair of shoes at one moment, we have an endless number of different events that need various shoes, from running shoes and golf shoes to sandals for the beach, boots for winter and heels at each color and height imaginable – just because. But where do you store all of these shoes? As you know, shoes do not like to be stored alongside each other, since the various design details onto a fairly inexpensive shoe can wind up destroying a brand new set of Italian leather heels you just picked up at Zappos.
Happily, manufacturers have established innovative design solutions for you in the form of the shoe storage bench. These little beauties solve almost all of your shoe storage problems, letting each set of shoes have its own area. On top of that, a shoe storage seat can fit in only about each unused and underutilized corner at your home, from the foot of your bed in the master into the entryway.

So, what do you look for in a shoe storage bench? Well, the first thing is that the number of cubbies the seat has. You want to purchase benches with as many cubbies as will fit in the area you’ve got in mind, knowing that shoes have a way of multiplying over time. There are two standard kinds 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 seat at which the front opens out, showing either cubbies or cable loops that slip right into the shoe, allowing them hang loose.

Neither variant is preferable over the other. It really depends on your individual preferences and the amount of area you have available. Space. That is always an issue in houses.
If you go for a shoe storage bench from the living space, you probably need to get a model that has a door that opens outward. After the door is closed, your own shoe storage area looks just like your ordinary bench and people can use it for additional seating when they stop by. Nobody can even tell that you have your favorite pumps concealed inside. When everybody leaves, you can pop open the door, sit down on the seat and choose which set of fantastic open toed sandals you’re likely to wear to dinner that night. Close the door up and voila! – it’s a seat again.
