“Remember to take off your shoes before you come into the house! And don’t just throw them next to the front door!”
“But where should we put them?”
“How about in your cupboard?”
“But their stinky/muddy (you can insert your own adjective here)”
Does this sound like a conversation you have had with your family members in the past? Today? Well, you’re not alone. It is rare that a house has been designed to cater for all the little things that need to be stored quickly and conveniently so that they are easily accessible.
Shoes bring dirt into the home. And it’s probably fair to say that you spend too much time every day cleaning your house and that any help you can get in keeping dirt out is going to save you time and aggravation.
JUST SHOO THEM AWAY
Unless you’re living on a desert island, chances are that you and your family members walk around in some form of footwear every day. It’s also possible that you change shoes on numerous occasions every day – for the gym, shopping, going out, etc.
Simply doing the math, for an average family of four members, you can easily use ten pairs of shoes a day. This can result in your home becoming a mine field of shoes if they’re not properly stored.
Given that most of us are lazy, and especially if you live in a large single storey home or a double-storey home, you couldn’t be bothered taking and bringing your shoes every time you want to change them or simple store them. On the flipside, you don’t want your home looking like a shoe store with shoes left to welcome visitors outside the front door or in a pile in a corner just inside your home.
There is a simple shoe storage solution that will leave your house tidy and your shoes protected. Plastic shoe cabinets come in different sizes and colors to suit every home and space. They can be placed in a space that is easy to access and also protects the shoes from the elements when the weather is rainy or snowy. They are inexpensive and easy to assemble and will help keep your shoes out of sight (and out of mind) and your house looking tidy.
