Shoes lying around on the floor of your bedroom can look pretty messy, not to mention the fact that if they are out in the open, they are likely to gather and accumulate dust and dirt. You may even stumble on them when walking to the bathroom, especially if you just got up from bed. This need not happen though. With the Home Decorators Item 37638 Craftsman 42-Pair Shoe Storage, you can keep them organized, neat, and out of the way.
The shoe closet is built from wood with a handcrafted oak veneer giving it a true Craftsman furniture look. There are three variations of the oak finish –Macintosh, dark, and light oak. Regardless of the shade you choose, however, the shoe closet can blend into any room of any décor or colors.
The Craftsman signature does not only come from the closet’s oak finish. It is also obvious from its design. There are no elaborate moldings and trims. Instead, it is mostly angular from top to bottom.
The top is a thick piece of wood with softened corners. It has two doors with each having a mullion stretching from top to bottom, and two horizontal rails. These divide the doors into six panels, making them look like a French door except that instead of glass lites the panels are in wood.
Cast metal hardware on the door frames for opening and closing complete the Craftsman look.
With this design, you can also choose to install it next to the coat closet. A vase with flowers, key basket, figurines, or other decorative items can be displayed on it.
Inside the Home Decorators Item 37618 Craftsman 42-Pair Shoe Storage are 42 shoe cubbies for your formal, casual, walking, and running shoes. Each measures 5″ H x 3.75″ W x 12″D, which should provide enough room for most shoes. Since the closet is covered with doors and has a particleboard backer, your shoes are kept out of sight as well as from dust and dirt.
Overall dimensions of the shoe closet are 36.5″ H x 35″ W x 14″ D.
