We all know how inconvenient it is to have shoes lying around in the house, gathering dust and providing a haven for insects and other vermin. And it’s not just your feet that become unsightly – they also bother people’s looks and make them feel self-conscious about their appearance, which can be very off-putting. If you’re in the market for some new outdoor shoe storage ideas then you’re in luck because there are plenty of options available. Here are some storage ideas you may want to consider.
Outdoor Exercise Equipment
Outdoor exercise equipment is a great outdoor shoe storage solution. Some people keep their treadmills, mountain bikes and other fitness gear under the kitchen sink, but a better solution would be to store these outdoor toys in an outdoor storage shed. You can secure the equipment inside a sturdy metal or wooden storage unit that will keep them safe from both weather elements and animals.
There are many types of outdoor exercise equipment that can benefit from being stored outside, including stationery bikes, rowing machines such as the Concept2 RowERG, treadmills, elliptical trainers, and many more.
Outdoor shed or storage building
An outdoor shed or storage building is also a great outdoor shoe storage idea for the home. If you don’t already have one, you should consider purchasing one. These buildings are made from wood or vinyl and can be purchased relatively inexpensively. And can add a certain extra bit of decor to your garden or yard.
When it comes to choosing the right outdoor shed or building for your needs, there are a few things to keep in mind. For example, you’ll need to determine whether you’re going to be storing the outdoor gear indoors or out (in the yard) and whether you want a freestanding building or a wall-mounted structure.
Size & Shape
The type of outdoor shoe storage you decide to go with will depend on the size and shape. If you plan to store several pairs of shoes inside the structure, you’ll probably want a freestanding structure. Many people prefer this arrangement as it allows them to walk around and check out each pair as they pass.
On the other hand, if you don’t have space for freestanding outdoor shoe storage, a wall-mounted structure may be the perfect solution. These structures usually come with an attached hanger bar and shelves (often several high shelves) for storing shoes on. If you already have wall space inside your home, you can easily install a wall-mounted structure just like mentioned in shifted magazine.
An outdoor shoe storage shed can also be used to protect outdoor clothing and gear. These outdoor sheds give you a place to store your outdoor clothing that is away from the elements but is still within easy reach. If you live in an area that experiences inclement weather, an outdoor shed or outdoor storage building can be a great place to store your outdoor clothing when you aren’t wearing them.
When choosing your outdoor shoe storage building or shed, you want to take several factors into consideration. First, you’ll need to consider how much room you need. Different types of structures can vary in size and shape. You’ll also need to think about what kind of locking mechanism you’d like to have.
Many outdoor storage buildings are equipped with a combination of hinged and slide-locking doors; you’ll need to consider how difficult it would be to open these doors if the need arose.
