Seven Tips for Choosing the Perfect Shoe Cabinet
Whether you are male or female, young or old, there are so many models of shoes - sandals, sneakers, pumps, high heels or boots, to mention but a few. Whichever type you prefer, they accompany you on all your journeys. Now the only question is, how to look after your shoes after you’ve taken them off.
Shoes are often abandoned in the hallway and block the entrance, creating an unwelcoming sight. Alternatively, they are tightly stacked on top of each other or crushed in closets, boxes or even the cellar. You can change all this with the purchase of a shoe cabinet.
Variety of options
They are made of solid wood, wood, glass, textile, plastic or metal and are available in a variety of colors. They are available in various versions as boot shelves, shoe commodes, shoe tippers or cabinets for hanging, tipping or standing.
Shoe cabinets, or shoe benches, can also be used in more spacious rooms as seating and offer additional storage space. Cupboards with sliding doors, in a variety of widths/heights, fit nicely into the hallway or even the dressing room.
Whether in the smallest student apartment, a luxurious attic room or single-family house, shoe shelves bring order to the chaos and can simultaneously be a decorative element.
Tips for the right selection
Now you have the choice! When deciding which model it should be, you should ask yourself some questions:
- Should the shoes be stored and protected from dust? In this case you should consider a shoe box, a boot loader or a cabinet.
- If you would like to display your shoes nicely, then shoe galleys, or glazed shoe cabinets, with or without lighting and different widths and heights, are particularly suitable.
- What material is best suited for the location where the shoe cabinet will be placed? Shoe cabinets made of plastic or laminated wood are, for example, better suited for storage in cellar spaces than shelves made of rustic or high-quality wood.
- How much space is available to me? In small rooms, where every centimeter counts, shoe tippers and high cabinets are particularly suitable as they fit snugly against the wall and require little space.
- What kind of style do I prefer?
In addition, you should consider whether, and how much time, you would like to invest in the care of a shoe cabinet.
Shoe cabinets made of real wood need periodic care with furniture polish or special oil, while shoes of coated chipboard, plastic or metal must be wiped with a damp cloth.
If you have pets or small children, you should be aware that shoe cabinets with polished or glazed surfaces are more sensitive than models with more robust surfaces.
