When the entrance hall is too small or even has no entrance hall, what points should be paid attention to in the design of the shoe cabinet so that it can be conveniently used without affecting the flow of traffic?
Cabinet doors change the effect of the entire space
The shoe cabinet is the first piece of furniture you see when you first enter. Its color and board texture can definitely change the visual effect of the entire space. There are many types of door panels, including wood grain, stone grain, cloth grain, solid color, color matching, paint, glass, etc. You can also choose shutters, wooden strips, mirrors and other finishes to easily create a porch atmosphere.
Use lighting to add lightness to your shoe cabinet
Large cabinets often make people feel heavy. Half-length suspended cabinets can reduce the visual pressure. Add light strips under the cabinets to add lightness. At the same time, when you enter the door, put your shoes directly in the suspended position and it will not affect your walking. Moving lines, convenient and beautiful.
Use jumping colors to make the entrance shoe cabinet more lively
If you want to add some lively colors to your shoe cabinet, the safest way is to use “similar colors”. But if you want the cabinet to show a more diverse and lively visual experience, you can use white with other colors. Color-hopping cabinet doors can quickly achieve the effect of lively space.
The depth of the shoe cabinet depends on the size of the entrance
The first condition for shoe cabinet depth design must be the length of the shoes. Generally, a flat shoe cabinet with a depth of about 35-40 cm is sufficient. But if the entrance hall of your home is relatively narrow and you want to make the shoe cabinet slimmer, you will need to use a diagonal pull-out shoe cabinet. You only need to reserve 25 centimeters. Although the number of shoes that can be placed in an oblique shoe cabinet will be smaller than that of a flat shoe cabinet, it is still a good choice in limited space.
Half-length shoe cabinet is convenient for all family members to use
Generally, the overall height of a half-length shoe cabinet is about 80-100 centimeters. This height is convenient for all family members, including children and the elderly, to put and retrieve shoes.
Try to use handleless designs
The handles of shoe cabinets are generally not too high, and you often have to bend down to change shoes. The entrance is an important passage for walking in and out, and the handles can easily hurt your hands and feet. In order to prevent collisions, try to use a handleless design. Concealed handles or push-type handles are both good.
The half-length shoe cabinet is convenient for storage and is simple and fashionable.
The half-length shoe cabinet meets the storage needs of shoes. The suspended design is convenient for placing slippers, and the height of the cabinet is just right for storing small things such as change and keys. You can also put some perfume, disinfectant spray, small potted plants, aromatherapy and other items to enhance the The texture of space.
