If you are planning shelves for storage in your new bathroom, consider building shelves that are recessed into the wall. These shelves can be either framed with trim or left unframed. Or you can add doors to keep things on the shelves dust free. In a small bathroom, doors with glass or frosted glass doors will make the room appear more spacious than solid wood doors (and frosting creates enough blurring that you don’t need to be quite as neat). You can use the shelves strictly for storage or you can mix storage and display of decorative items. If you cannot or do not want to build recessed shelves, you might consider installing glass shelves. Because they are clear and reflect light, they do not make the room look smaller, as wood shelves might do.
Many people search for ideas to store their shoes when they run out of space in the closet or under the bed. There are hangers that have slots for shoes and other methods, but none of these are as stylish and useful as shoe storage benches. Because of the points discussed above, the best option for those looking for a simple and effective solution for storing shoes in the entryway of their home while keeping a clean look and being useful is a shoe storage bench with seat and sliding doors.
