How to choose a galoshnitsa

To buy a galoshnitsa for shoes in the hallway, you need to consider several very important factors:

  • the size of your room;
  • the number of residents;
  • the presence of pets, as well as their characteristic habits;
  • how often guests visit you and in what quantity;
  • the presence of solid shelves;
  • The height and size of your shoes.

Before going to the store you should also decide on the size and color, so as not to be mistaken, but you can choose the appearance on the spot. So you can emphasize the interior of your room and do not guess, this or that model will fit into a free corner.

  • For dark rooms, light shades become the best solution in color, which visually expands it, adds light, and also makes it brighter.
  • For large families, be sure to consider the size and capacity of galoshnits so that it does not happen that it takes up a lot of space, and in terms of functionality it is completely useless.
  • A narrow shoe for shoes in the hallway is a great option for a long narrow hallway. The higher you have it, the more shoes you can fit into it, but it is necessary to fasten a galoshnica to the wall so that the severity of the shoes does not overturn it.
  • In a small hallway, you can put a cabinet or a bookcase with wheels, which allows you to move it with ease, as well as free up space for passage.

When buying, you should always pay attention to the material from which the galoshnitsa is made, because its appearance, practicality, cleanliness, as well as its service life depend on it.

  • Natural wood is well suited for a spacious room. The galoshnitsa of such material, although it will last a long time, will take a lot of space. Perfectly fit into the style of any interior. You should also avoid contact with moisture.
  • Plastic It is another inexpensive material, and at the same time it is not afraid of moisture at all, washes without any particular difficulties, but it has a significant minus - fragility.
  • Glass although it is the most original and beautiful option, but it is completely impractical: you need to wash it regularly, otherwise the appearance will be badly damaged. Thin glass is very fragile, and thick - quite massive.
