Six tips for customized shoe cabinets!
If there is no shoe cabinet, then the entrance hall will be dirty and smelly, not only affect the living experience, but also affect the first impression of guests entering the door, so it is necessary to customize a shoe cabinet! So what should we pay attention to when customizing shoe cabinets?
- Shoe cabinet depth not exceeding 400 mm
Inside the shoe cabinet, there are two types: dump type and flat type. The general depth is 330 mm, because the maximum length of men’s shoes is 320 mm, and that of women’s shoes is 250 mm. If you need to place a shoe box, increase the depth of the shoe cabinet, the depth of 400 mm is enough.
- Shoe cabinet height not exceeding 160mm
The upper height of men’s shoes is shorter, so the height of shoe cabinet is generally set between 150 mm for women’s shoes. In order to be more suitable for daily use, movable laminates can be designed, which can adjust the floor height according to the height of shoes.
- Basic Configuration of Shoe Cabinet
The basic configuration of shoe cabinet includes floor cabinet, hanging cabinet and high cabinet. If conditions permit, shoe stool, hanging area and decorative cabinet can be designed. Ground cabinets are widely used and can be designed as drawers; suspension cabinets can accommodate seasonal shoes and boots; high cabinets have large capacity and can be designed with full-body mirrors after cabinet doors; old people and children can be set as footstools; decorative cabinets can be considered according to the size of space.
- Large capacity is the primary consideration
Shoe cabinet can bear a lot of functions, but the multi-functional combination of shoe cabinet will reduce the receipt capacity of shoe cabinet, such as adequate porch area, can be designed to change the footstool, hanging area and other functional equipment, if the area is limited, please first ensure the storage of shoes in the shoe cabinet, and then consider other functions to achieve.
- Necessity of Design of “Normal Shoe Position”
In order to alleviate the cleaning work and remove the odor, many families will put the shoes and slippers worn that day outside the shoe cabinet, which will affect the view. It is suggested that the bottom of the shoe cabinet should be designed to be 100 mm suspended, or that the two-layer partition of the bottom of the shoe cabinet should be designed as an open style to meet the daily use.
In addition to the instructions for customizing shoe cabinets, we generally classify them into the following types according to the style of shoe cabinets:
