Order and cleanliness in the hallway will never cease to be relevant for each conscientious hostess. Often the main “headache” is the problem of convenient storage of shoes. In most cases, the best solution to this task is to install in the hallway of a special shelf for such things, however, when it is elected, it should be considered both its advantages and possible flaws.
Advantages and disadvantages
The main and indisputable advantage of the shelves for shoes is the order that appears in the hallway with the purchase of this product. The problem of scattered in different places shoes and shoes disappears together with the advent of the place specifically reserved for things. Along with the mess, the question of frequent pollution of sex and walls is almost completely disappeared, since the soles and heels can now be stained only the shelf itself.
In addition, a reasonably organized place for storing shoes harmoniously builds space in the hallway. There is a place for free passage and comfortable undressing. This is especially true for those who often receive guests or has a big family.
For those who enjoy the daily choice of a new image and contain a real collection of seasonal shoes, shelf for its storage is a truly indispensable detail. Make a good choice of shoes at chaos in the hallway is simply impossible.

Another important disadvantage is to reduce safety indoors. The unsuccessful model can be an obstacle to the way and provoke injuries (especially in young children who move a lot and are often inattentive). However, it is worth emphasizing that with a thoughtful location of the shovel, the risk of injury is reduced to a minimum.
Among the new tasks that the hostess will appear with the acquisition of the shelves for shoes – maintaining the purity and tidiness of the product itself. Sometimes wash such a shelf is not very convenient and requires some permutation in the hallway. For example, the metal open shelf will have to periodically completely shift from the place to rinse the floor under it and release sometimes from the shoes to wipe its component parts. However, it is possible to call it a serious minus of … with great exaggeration.
In order to avoid complaints that acquired furniture acquired, it is necessary to carefully approach its choice, examined in detail all the possible offers of the modern market.
One of the popular varieties of shelves for shoes can be called Open model. Such a design is ideal for small-sized corridors, which suggest that the storage of the outerwear and shoes will be placed on one wall of the hallway. Possessing a small height, an open shoe shelf may have a fairly spacious storage surface, since its dimensions vary depending on the model. Thus, occupying a place under the hooks for clothing and shelves for accessories, an open stand, on the one hand, will ensure the storage of all things in one part of the hallway, and on the other – it will not get into the eyes and take too much and without a modest housing space.
Another option for placing this type of shelf is its installation directly in the closet. It is worth noting that such a solution takes place under the observance of certain norms of hygiene: if the shelf tiers are not made as a single surface (as often happens in metal products), under the shelf it is necessary to put the pallet or protective film. This way will be prevented on the lower surface of the mud cabinet with the shoe sole.
For those who particularly appreciate the uniform style of the hallway, the acquisition of such a good option Shelves with hanger included. It is worth noting that along with such models, where the shoe stand remains open, there are both designs with a closed jumper.

Another convenient way to store shoes in the hallway of a small size is Suspended angular shelf. The main advantages of its design is the tangible savings of the place and the ability to place the product, attaching it to the walls at any selected height.

For those who, first of all, appreciate the perfect order and does not like to expose unnecessary household details at the bottom, the ideal storage option will be Closed stellage. This type of shoes can be placed both directly in the free space of the hallway, and in the built-in cabinet. The undoubted advantage of this type of furniture is the ability to fully hide shoes, closing the sliding sliding shelf.
However, it should be taken into account that it is undesirable to constantly keep shoes and shoes in a closed rack, as any shoes periodically seek drying and ventilating.
In the event that the function of retractable shelves are not relevant, one can give its preference Open steering. Modern production offers a mass options for the execution of such a model, both in various materials and the color scheme. Such a type of shelves for shoes will harmoniously fit into the overall design of the hallway, without attracting increased attention. In addition, unlike the closed, open rack provides the highest possible access at the same time to all shoes, which is also convenient, especially for those who value the time for fees.
The maximum ease of choice of the desired pair of shoes will undoubtedly provide Round rotating shelf (Such is often installed in stores). This type of furniture will have to taste connoisseurs of stylish design solutions and owners of a large number of shoes. Large families such a spacious round shelf will also be very convenient: each family member will be able to have a personal tier to store their shoes, and the search for the right pair will take no more than a few seconds (which is especially relevant when delivering at the same time several children, for example).
With its obvious advantages, this jigger has some drawbacks, in particular, a fairly high price and bulk dimensions. Such a shelf it is impossible to install close to walls or corner, so it does not fit for small halls.
Another interesting solution to the problem of storing shoes is rightfully Shelf with seat top (type “Banquet”). Such a design will be the best solution for those who do not want to clutch the hallway with excess furniture and appreciates comfort in the process of arms. The shelves with the seat are distinguished by high strength and simple, but elegant appearance, as well as a variety of materials and execution options. This type will be a good solution for a small hallway, but it is worth considering that the capacity of the banquette is less than most of the above options.
The most unusual version of the shoes can be called Shelf with a fastening fabric cover. This type of furniture is characterized by youth design, sustainable design and various form and sizes. Called to protect shoes from dust cover can also be made in several colors (mainly white, gray, black and beige). Such a regiment will be an indispensable acquisition for lovers of suede shoes, which is more than the rest of her species by rapid coating of dust.
In the event that the storage of the shoes is allocated by space where not perfectly clean things are constantly stored (such as, bicycle, trolley bag or baby stroller), then Shelf with Czech will be the perfect solution to save shoes from potential pollution. The case can be easily removed and wrapped in a washing machine, and if necessary, or desire, changes can simply refuse it and use such a junk as an outdoor rack.
Despite the fact that some of these types of shoe shelves can be constructed independently, it is worth considering that in its overwhelming majority, purchased products look more neatly and aesthetic than their hands made.

In addition, these materials can be combined with each other by any possible way (for example, metal and glass). In order not to have difficulties with the competent operation of the selected material, it should thoughtfully examine all its strengths and weaknesses.
Leaders in terms of sales are already long decades are wood products.
