Why in the world would anyone put their shoes in a closet with their washer and dryer (No. 9)? I think the heat/steam from the machines would wreak havoc on my Jimmy Choos in no time. Okay, okay, so I don't have any Jimmy Choos - my Nikes then.

Making use of minimal space. There is a shelf between so probably not an issue. Also, my washer/dryer don’t put off any heat/steam.

@md1948, I think you are right about the heat. If the machine is vented to the outdoors and the hookup is sealed, there should be no moisture. But heat is certainly not good for leather or glues. At least the closet would be unlikely to get moldy! I think that’s a combo wash-and-dry machine, because you can kind of see through the vented door and what is behind there does not look like a washer. Those are even worse, in that mixed-use closet design, because you have to run the dryer cycle for much longer than you would in a simple clothes dryer.
