Where do you keep your shoes? In a heap under the kitchen table? In a pile by the front door? Perhaps it’s time you explored the fascinating world of shoe closets. That’s right – a closet for your shoes. And shopping for the right one is almost as much fun as shopping for the shoes that go in them.

Unlike closet organizers, a shoe closet is more than just a bunch of boxes glued together to make a shoe cubby. I have nothing against shoe cubbies, mind you. They can be a practical, inexpensive and functional addition for closet or bedroom. But nothing beats a nice piece of furniture. I’m not talking custom cabinets, here – that can be a very expensive proposition. However, there are alternatives that can stills be attractive amenities to your home.

Shoe closets are available in a plethora of styles, types, and finishes. There’s sure to be one that appeals to you and that coordinates with your existing decor.

The bench types are functional and attractively upholstered with a shoe cubby in the base. They come in a variety of cushion patterns and colors, and materials including leather. I love their versatility. Because they come in a range of widths, they can easily be incorporated at the foot of just about any bed without taking up precious wall space. They’re just as functional in a walk-in closet as they are in an entryway. Some even have sock drawers located just below the bench cushion.

There are also bench styles with drawers that pivot forward, just like the freestanding types with the same style drawer. (Those come in single to triple high units in various furniture styles and finishes. Most are “assembly required”, so have a handyman ready if you’re not good at following directions or handling a screwdriver.)
