In this review we look at the best foyer bench with shoe storage choices ranging from the grand church style pew which often is associated with hallways and entraceways, to a more economical range crafted from cheaper materials such as bamboo.

Bamboo Foyer Bench with Shoe Storage

First up is the economical yet elegant version of the traditional foyer shoe bench which is pratical through its under bench racks for shoe storage yet is robust enough to sit two people comfortably.

Bamboo-Hallway-Shoe-and-Bench-Storage-with-ShoesMade from genuine sections of bamboo don’t be afraid to sit on this bench, why? well users have reported concern over the squeeking noises that occur when putting your weight onto the bench. Bamboo is obviously a natural material and the fibres within the wood naturally make this noise so don’t be put off it is normal.

There is enough space on the two tier shoe racks to include around 3-4 pairs of adult sized shoes and several more if you have children that will use this foyer bench.

Priced at under $50 this shoe bench can be placed in entraceways, foyers, bedrooms and just about anywhere (I wouldn’t recommend in the bathroom however due to the nature of Bamboo, this will compromise the integrety of the bench) and is a real winner in terms of great looks and value for money.
