Have you ever thought about reorganizing your shoe storage? How organized are your shoes? It seems as though the storage area for shoes is the most cluttered and gets the least amount of attention — even though they are used daily. Whether you have a closet to spare or a small space in your bedroom, you can easily update how you store and care for your shoes. Choose from a wide variety of shoe organizers, such as hanging shoe racks and storage benches, that keep your shoes tidy and in great shape.
Closet Shoe Storage
For a home that's on the smaller side, take advantage of every bit of available wall space in your closet, and build or install organizers or shelves designed to fit your shoes. Place the shoes you use least near the ceiling, and don't forgot to include some tall shelves for boots. If you're still cramped for space, pick up portable shoe racks that you can slide under the hanging clothes in your closet.
If your closet already has shelving in place but the individual shelves are so tall you end up wasting space, install mini-shelves that rest inside the already-existing shelves. Adding a rail on the back of each shelf lets you hook the heels of your shoes over it to hold them in place. If your closet is short on shelves but has plenty of hanging space, pick up a hanging shoe bag;. Opt for one that has in each space a flat, solid bottom that holds its shape and has enough space to place your shoes side by side.
If you have deep closets and find that a lot of the space in the rear of the closet is wasted, move your hanging racks further back. You can even look into replacing your closet doors with custom-built designs that include floor-to-ceiling shelves for shoes on the inside of each door. If you have a walk-in closet, consider hanging a shoe rack or shoe bag over one side of the door to give yourself plenty of extra space.
Bedroom Shoe Storage
Double up space in a small bedroom by choosing a bench for the end of the bed that includes a lower shelf that can hold shoes. This solution works really well for a child's room since it puts shoes within easy reach. Another great shoe storage solution for a child's room is a rack of pegs; simply hang shoes by the laces for easy access.
Take advantage of empty wall space by installing shallow custom-built cabinets that are just deep enough for a pair of shoes. You can also match the style and hardware to your existing cabinetry or furniture. Consider placing these cabinets on opposite sides of the bed, or fill out the wall space on either side of your dresser.
Innovative Shoe Storage
If your shoe collection spills out of your closet and bedroom, consider installing shoe storage throughout your house. What looks like a sideboard in your entryway or living room can actually hold multiple shelves of neatly organized shoes behind its cabinet doors. If you have a large, unused wall in your mudroom or laundry room, install floor-to-ceiling holders for shoes.
In addition, an unused guest room can become the perfect shoe storage option. Add floor-to-ceiling shelf space for your footwear — or go above and beyond by turning it into a luxurious walk-in closet that gives you plenty of room for your whole wardrobe. Consider closet organizers as well. If you need the space to double as a guest room or a craft room from time to time, hang drapes across your walls of shoes.
Shoe organizers, shoe racks and dedicated shoe storage of all types can help you get your shoe collection under control. Just a little planning makes it easy to find the shoes you need and keep your shoes from taking over your entire closet. All it takes is a little effort for some great organization.
