Shoes seem to have a mind of their own. These free-spirited accessories have a pesky little habit of wandering off from their partner, getting lost without a trace minutes before you need to walk out the door and resurfacing in the least likely corner of your home. And, if history tells us anything, it’s that the likelihood of your shoes landing on your expensive area rug goes up by no less than 70 percent when there’s rain in the forecast.

So, can you train your teenager’s sneakers not to roll around on your living room carpet? Unlikely. Here's the good news: You can teach your teenager to slide them off in the garage before coming into the house after football practice. You can save yourself from trekking grass stains into the dining room after yard work, and you can encourage your kiddo to pick up and put away their shoes at the end of the day. All you need are a few strategically placed shoe storage benches throughout your home

No mudroom? No problem! You don’t need a specific utility space to benefit from a shoe storage bench. If you’re unsure where your household would best benefit from a shoe bench, consider where you enter or leave the house the most and go from there. For instance, if you put on and take off shoes by your front door, that will be the best location to add a new storage bench. The same theory applies to your garage, back porch or playrooms.

Find the best shoe storage benches for any room in your house in the links below, and never lose a loafer again.

Pottery Barn

First impressions are everything, and your foyer sets the tone for the rest of your home. Swap the pile of tattered tennis shoes, shopping totes and dog-walking gear crammed by your front door with this streamlined shoe storage bench from Pottery Barn.

Each features dual drop-down cubby doors that reveal a roomy interior ideal for storing shoes, backpacks and leashes out of sight between use.

Cozy up your guest bedroom with this comfy upholstered shoe storage bench from Amazon. Style at the end of the bed or position it beside the door to create a natural place for guests to store their shoes and bags when settling in for the night.

$309.99 $283.99

Nestle the Beauchamps bench against an empty wall or behind your sofa to add additional seating and store shoes out of sight. The shoe storage bench boasts an iconic modern silhouette, a plush upholstered cushion and three faux drawers — that’s right, faux drawers.

$303.99 $82.99

Dynamic yet simple, this Laurel Foundry Modern Farmhouse bench is the easiest solution to staying on-trend while simultaneously keeping your home clean.

Why not make the most of the utility space you have? The Cabell Shoe Storage Bench from Target is equal parts fashion and function. It comes in three contemporary colors and provides hidden and open-air storage to suit all your shoe storage needs. Our advice? Store your rainboots or go-to slides in the open cubbies and hide your teen's aromatic (toxic) athletic shoes safely within the doored compartments.


What comes off as a streamlined geometric bench is actually a piece of furniture that can function as storage or a place to crack open a book. Coming in classic off-white and neutral cottage oak, this bench offers two pull-down interior storage cabinets that are as spacious as they are practical. Depending on how you want to design your space, you can remove the top cushion for an additional storage element or keep it as a place to slip off shoes and enjoy an evening cocktail. Keep in mind the paint is meant to have a distressed look, another unique addition to an otherwise normal-looking bench.

Overhead, a matching wooden slat holds six hooks and an integrated grid board with 10 metal hooks, offering storage for coats, bags and seasonal gear. The 5-tier side shelf serves as additional room for shoes and accessories.

The Home Depot

Sometimes less is more, and this 2-tier shoe storage proves that point. A timeless style meets functionality in this walnut-colored bench, doubling as a shoe and handy accessory storage.
