Are you fed up of seeing shoes left outside the door? Here's a list of the best outdoor shoe storage bench picks which could work for almost any home.
Whether you have a “No Shoes Inside the House” policy or not, it’s always better to have an outdoor shoe rack. But if you’re going that route anyway, why not save more space and go for an outdoor shoe storage bench? Having a bench makes it easier to wear shoes or just have someplace to sit while, and it saves space. If you’re sold on the idea of buying a shoe rack that doubles as a bench, here are some of our favorite shoe bench storage ideas.
This two-tier shoe bench from SONGMICS looks perfect for most entryways due to its compact design ad its faux-leather seat on top. A bench with shoe storage needs to be sturdy enough not just to hold shoes but also to your weight. This bench that could hold up to 440 pounds should be strong enough to sit on while you’re putting on your shoes. As for the shoe compartment, it could hold about 8 pairs of flats and sneakers. There won’t be room for those winter boots. So, you may have to find another place to store those boots outdoors.
How many racks are in your entryway? If you feel like the entrance to your home is too cluttered because of all your organizers – yes you can have too many of them – then an all-in-one solution makes sense. This WE Furniture entry bench could handle shoes, hats, gloves, and jackets. There’s one tier for shoes and several hooks for your outerwear. This shoe bench also comes with a wooden finish in different shades that should complement your home’s décor. The only drawback with this bench is weight capacity. It can only hold up to 180 pounds but this shouldn’t be much of a problem.
When you have a narrow entryway and you wouldn’t leave a lot of shoes outdoors anyway, this stool type shoe bench could be an option. The bench has a woven fabric top and it has the perfect height for putting your shoes on and taking them off. Plus, it’s easy to move this piece of furniture around because of its small size. This bench could only hold about two pairs of shoes. And with its size, only one person could use the seat comfortably.
Speaking of small spaces, here’s another entryway shoe storage bench that is perfect for narrow spaces. The dark brown wood complements most modern home designs making it a versatile choice. This storage bench comes with hinged doors and louvered doors so your shoes can breathe.

Made up of both metal and wood, this shoe bench from VASAGLE is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. It can hold about six to eight pairs of shoes depending on the size and it can hold up to 198 pounds. Due to its minimalist design, this shoe bench should fit right into any modern home. And it should also provide a unique accent to your home’s entrance. Unfortunately, the two compartments under the bench don’t have any cubicles. So, if you’re big on being organized, you have to arrange the shoes in an organized manner.
Even with the best shoe bench storage racks, everything may still look cluttered. If you’re struggling with this problem, it’s ideal for something that keeps disarranged shoes out of sight. One solution could be this deck box from Keter Borneo. A cool thing about this outdoor bench is that it is automated. It also provides outdoor seating for at least two people.

Coming in with an antique flair, this wooden bench with a Eucalyptus finish and rustic design is a unique piece of outdoor furniture.

If a box-like porch shoe storage is not something that strikes your fancy, this storage box from Topfree could be the better choice. The aluminum-reinforced seating should make this sturdy enough and the handwoven rattan makes this storage bench perfect for outdoor use.

Since the design is not dedicated to shoes, there are no racks and it is impractical to stash wet or muddy shoes in this box.
