Every home needs a place for everyone's shoes and a customised shoe cabinet is the best way to keep them hidden.

Most of us place our shoes near the front door so it's only sensible to have a shoe cabinet at your home's entryway.

Read on to see five modern-looking shoe cabinet ideas for a neat home entryway!

#1 Shoe cabinet with seating area

When deciding on the design for your shoe cabinet, factor in the fact that you will need to put on your shoes at the entryway too. So, make it easier for yourself by including a seating area with your shoe cabinet so that you can sit down to put on and take off your shoes.

Most people will design the seating area to be on one side while the shoe cabinet is placed on the other side from ceiling to the floor.

You can leave the background of the seating area plain, install hooks to hang bags and coats or simply place a mirror there.

#2 Seating area enclosed by shoe cabinet

Another way is to enclose the seating area with your shoe cabinet by having cupboards surrounding it. This design has the same purpose as #1 so it just depends on which one is more of your style!

#3 Floating shoe cabinet

If you plan to live the minimalist lifestyle and don't have that many pairs of shoes, a floating shoe cabinet should suffice. This is a much cheaper option compared to customised shoe cabinets but that doesn't mean it won't look good! Go for light colours such as white, beige or grey and have it mounted on the wall at your home's entryway.

Spruce up the area by placing a mirror there as well as decorations or ornaments.

#4 Shoe cabinet with built-in shelving

For those who don't fancy having a seating area near the shoe cabinet, you can absolutely do away with it. Instead, make it look less plain by having built-in shelving like the ones in the images above. Make sure to opt for hidden lights too for a cosy ambience. Place photo frames, decorations or plants on the shelving to make it your own style.

#5 Store bought shoe cabinets

A large customised shoe cabinet will undoubtedly cost quite a bit so if you have a budget, just stick to the traditional shoe cabinets that can be purchased in stores. You can then spend on decorating it or placing a luxurious-looking bench to create that seating area you want!
