. Stylish Shoe Storage
If soccer cleats, rain boots and other footwear are the main source of clutter in your foyer, look for an entryway bench with shoe storage. Some storage benches have open shelves, while others come with an inner compartment or cabinet doors that keep shoes and other items hidden from view. There are also storage bench seats that feature removable baskets that allow you to store shoes, cold-weather gear and anything else you need within reach, but out of sight. For the kids' room or playroom, try a transitional storage bench with colorful cubbies for toys and clothes. Interested in clean modern decor? Take a look at these white storage benches
