Best Kids Shoe Storage Bench

Messes and children go hand-in-hand. That doesn’t mean you have to totally surrender to the chaos. Inspire your little ones to keep the floors shoe-free with Crate & Barrel’s District Three-Cube Warm White Stackable Bookcase.

It comes in a warm white or a honey-hued wood finish with a Tip Restraint Kit for securing to the wall for safety. The legs can even be removed to lower the height for tiny toddlers. Fill the three cubes with brightly colored baskets. Add a coat rack above to create a welcoming place for your kids to rest their little bums while they kick off their shoes after a hard day at preschool.
