Shoe rack Taking off shoes in house
Have you ever seen “No shoes” sign at someone’s house? or maybe are you displaying the sign at your house? I often see such a sign when I use a vacation rental. Even if there are no such signs, many places have a house rule “taking off shoes in house”. I was wondering how these signs are effective? I am accustomed to remove shoes at home, so I don’t mind removing the shoes. But do most follow the rule? I don’t know.
I noticed that a few places have appropriate shoe rack that encourages guests to take off the shoes. One time I took off shoes in front of the entrance, still outside, but there was no shoe rack inside nor outside of the house. I left the shoes outside, but it rained at night! Another time I stayed in a condo and removed the shoes before the entrance. We went to beach and hiking. Eventually there are too many shoes and flip-flops outside, messy!
So I would suggest shoe racks for no-shoes house. At my house I like the shoe cabinet, or shoe rack with doors to hide shoes, but for this purpose, I chose shoe benches that guests can sit and remove shoes.
Shoe Bench at entrance
ZHEN GUO Entryway Shoe Bench with Coat Rack: This bench is very convenient with coat rack together.
Churchill Upholstered Storage Bench: This bench is very stylish with distinguished upholster design though there is not much space underneath.
Basilio Wood Storage Bench: IF you like industrial design this Basilo wood storage is the one. Also it has wheels for easy moving.
Binion Upholstered Storage Bench: Binion Storage bench is simple and go with most of the decors. There is a hook on the side, which is a bonus to hook keys etc..
Zimmer Storage Bench: This is another industrial-style bench, with angled metal wire and two storage space.
If you want a shoe bench outside of the entrance, you may want to pick durable and easy to clean.
Morgane Wood Storage Bench: This bench is ideal for outside: The slatted design makes it easy to clean and it holds a lot of shoes and else!
SONGMICS 3-Tier Bamboo Shoe Rack Bench, Shoe Organizer: This bench is made from bamboo is simply designed and very reasonable. It fits the small space.
For rainy area: with boots and umbrella
Ballard Double Boot Trays with Frame: This is not a bench, but good to have it when you live in a rainy area ow snowy area. Nicely it comes with an umbrella holder too.
If you need a boots rack, particularly for rain boots or snow boots, I would suggest outside boots rack to avoid wet floor/carpet. Simple boot rack such as Boot & Shoe Organizer Storage Rack by Better Homes & Gardens works for this purpose.
