The first thing to look at when talking about the shoe cabinet is what you will store there. Yes, shoes, we get along. But what types of shoes? We will not store shoes in the same way as a pair of sneakers. In this article, we will try to explain everything there is to know to choose a new shoe cabinet and above all to avoid having a piece of furniture that does not meet your needs.
1. THE IDEAL CAPACITY OF YOUR SHOE CABINET
The shoe cabinet is a piece of furniture apart because before looking at its measurements, we will ask the question of its capacity. Often in presentations, product sheets of shoe furniture, we will tell you how many pairs of shoes it can contain. Hence the interest in knowing how many pairs you should order! In our opinion, this number is approximate. A pair of ballerinas and a pair of boots do not take the same place in the furniture.
2. HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE OF SHOE CABINETS?
Depending on the room where the furniture will be located. If you plan to install your new piece of furniture in the corridor, the depth will be of great importance since the piece of furniture should not disturb the passage. We will, therefore, leave on a shallower model, possibly with inclined shelves so as not to lose space.
3. PUT A SHOE CABINET IN THE ENTRANCE
This is the most obvious solution. We come in, take off our shoes and we can put them away immediately. In reality, it’s often different, we know. In short, the shoe cabinet is often at the entrance. You must first ensure that it does not obstruct the passage and in absolute terms, the size of the furniture must be proportional to that of your space. Maybe you will prefer low furniture for the entrance which has the distinction of not overloading the space visually speaking.
4. STORE SHOES IN THE BEDROOM / DRESSING ROOM
If you have a dedicated room for storing your clothes you can also store shoes there. But honestly, we think it’s a minority of people who have this type of arrangement. If you need more than one shoe cabinet and you have room in your room, storing the shoes there is no problem. Choose a low piece of furniture, in the same style as your bedroom furniture to maintain the harmony of style.
A SHOE CABINET IN THE HALLWAY
The hallway can also be a space in the house where you put a shoe cabinet. As for the entrance, care must be taken to choose a model that is not too deep to avoid cluttering the passage. If your corridor seems lifeless, a bit dull, furnishing it is one of the possible solutions. Unlike a console that will be essentially aesthetic, the shoe cabinet is practical. This will allow you to declutter the main shoe cabinet which is in the entrance for example.
