Aside from having too many clothes, you may be stressing over the overflowing amount of shoes you have inside your home and how to store them properly.
If you don’t have space in your home for a large shoe cabinet, this issue may seem more difficult to navigate. But these photos and ideas will show that, when it comes to storage, all you need is a little bit of creativity!
1. Use an over-the-door shoe rack.
This fool-proof tool will instantly keep your pairs in order and in good condition. There are varieties that come in clear material, which will allow you to immediately find the pair you want to use. You can also go for colorful varieties for an instant pop of personality!
2. Invest in a customized storage piece.
This shoe storage solution will appeal particularly to those who live in small homes. Why not invest in a stool that also contains a few shelves for your shoes? You instantly get not only additional storage but also additional seating!
3. Install floating shelves.
When it comes to storage, it’s important to make use of every available space. If you have a bare wall or corner, install some floating shelves that can provide a home for your precious pairs. It can double as instant décor as well.
4. Look underneath your stairs.
Those spaces underneath the steps of your staircase can double as shoe storage too! Install drawers there and you have an instant place for your pairs.
5. Get a functional chest.
A big chest can be turned into a treasure trove of nice shoes—just make sure to store them properly to make sure they remain in good state. This chest can be used as a coffee table, too!
6. Hang them up!
Make the most of your walls by putting up some sturdy rods on which you can hang your shoes by their heels. For your other shoes that can’t be hung similarly, you can attach a hook to hang them instead.
7. Put your file holders to use.
Don’t know what to do with your wire magazine and file holders? Hang them up and use them as cozy places to store your shoes, particularly smaller and less bulky ones like your slippers and sandals.
