How do I find the best shoe storage solution for me?


Experts advise that you first divide your collection into three categories: shoes you wear daily, shoes you wear on the weekend and shoes for special occasions. Shoes you wear on a day-to-day basis should be kept in an accessible area by your front door. Shoes you wear on the weekends and on special occasions can be kept in your bedroom closet, though you may want to place those special occasion favorites in an out of the way but still visible spot to make more room for — you guessed it! — even more shoes!

Before you invest in a shoe rack, it’s a great idea to declutter your collection so you won’t be taking up valuable space with shoes you no longer wear. Also be sure to measure the space for your new shoe cabinet before you head to the store; you should also keep in mind that you might need a different kind of rack for different styles, such as high heels and boots.

I’m tight on space but still need a shoe organizer. What options do I have?


Rest assured — you’re not alone if you don’t have space to dedicate to a giant closet. There are plenty of nifty storage solutions out there that will hide away that unruly pile of shoes and take up minimum space. An over-the-door shoe rack uses extra space wisely, while shoe bags and clear boxes can be used to stow your collection under the bed. A shoe tree is a great idea if you have vertical space to spare but not much horizontal space, and some entryway shoe cabinets also come in tall and thin variations that will easily tuck into a corner by your front door.
