In the mudroom, entryway, foyer, or laundry closet, a storage bench to keep your shoes tucked and stored seems like a wonderful idea, don’t you think? Keep yourself and the family from traipsing through the house with muddy feet by having one of these pieces ready at a moment’s notice. Take a load off, take off your shoes and put them inside for the next day’s travels. But don’t worry, it doesn’t just have to be for organizational and cleanly purposes, instead pick one with your home’s style in mind. Now, let’s take a look at some real-life examples of stylish, functional and incredible versatile shoe storage benches.
Sleek, clean and functional, this style holds up to 18 pairs of shoes and keeps your foyer need and tidy. The chocolate brown finish goes well within traditional setting and you can find some easy ways to spruce in and around the bench! A throw pillow or two could really do the trick.
There’s an Asian tone to this piece that helps with a very zen and easy ethos. There’s ample space to keep your favorite shoes at a hand’s reach but it works well as a stylish seat instead of strictly function. We envision this piece in a small foyer or even in the entry’s leading hallway.
We love how this design combines seamless, homey style with the function of a busy family. The shoe rack is built right in – although you can purchase the piece without it – and it doesn’t take away from the clean lines or silhouette. Pair this rougher look with complimentary pieces or make it the statement by pairing it with more modern looks.
A bit funky, unique but made with an old-age spirited touch, this shoe bench has a lot of promise. We’d love to see this piece in a bright and vivacious color, hanging out in a family’s mud room just waiting for the cleats and school shoes to fill it. Of course, keeping it in its natural tone works great in a space that already has bouts of color.
We are completely swooning over the hide-away factor that this style has in store. Tuck your shoes away before entering the home and just shut the door to keep a simple and chic style. Of course, you don’t have to leave this bench outside, instead, right into the entryway would do the trick with no hassle.
This is probably our favorite of the bunch. Slick and white with a lighted finish, and a shoe rack hiding underneath for organizational help, there’s not much more you could ask for in a modern furniture accent. Use the top as a table top or another way to add personality and pizzazz to your home with accents.
If you’re looking for something contemporary and unique, look no further than to this artistic, geometric piece. Architectural profound and interesting, we are loving the ins and outs of this style. There are so many options for organizing and styling within this structure – so we urge you to get creative if you design on something like this!
This rustic choice is sure to be a conversational piece and can be displayed in the foyer for every guests to use and adore. We love the organic nature of this cherry wood bench and of course, the storage underneath for everyone’s shoes helps for functionality reasons. This is a larger choice, so make sure the space you decide to keep it in isn’t too small or cluttered.
Another contemporary piece to mix within your modern and fashion-forward home. The neutral colors will help to blend within the confines of your already-made ethos, but the flowing lines and easy finish make it an interesting and fun bench to show off. This can easily become the artistic, focal point of whatever room it lands in.
Made with shoe storage in mind, this cool option from West Elm gives you room for everything from muddy rain boots to yard-word only sneakers. But it’s topped off with a stylish twist that hides all the “mess” from the day’s adventures. The natural oak look paired with the white steel make for an interesting and youthful pairing, don’t you think?
