Genkan, the hygienic custom of taking off your shoes

The Genkan is the entrance area of Japanese houses reserved especially for changing shoes, an almost cathartic act after a long day at work. A tradition that is gaining strength in the West, where hygiene in the home worries us more than ever.

Although many of our entrances or hallways cannot compete with Japanese spaces, you can create your own Genkan space at home. You will only need a large BrickBox XL module, a large XL shelf, a large XL door and four wheels to build your own shoe rack, where you can store your footwear and at the same time use it as a seat to put you shoes on.

Here you can buy the shoe cabinet directly.
