Storing shoes

Shoe Organizer

Storing shoes is not always an easy task, especially if you are like most women and own a lot of shoes. If you don’t have a good solution for storing your shoes, then check out some of my favourite shoe storage ideas listed here. These solutions are extremely functional and easy to use.

  1. This shoe storage cabinet is ideal for hiding shoes so they don’t look messy. It holds approximately 36 pairs and is a great piece of furniture. I like how you can add smaller items such as keys in the top drawer. The only negative that I can think of is that it would be better to keep clean shows in it. Best to clean any muddy or dirty shoes before storing them. You can find shoe storage cabinets similar to this one at Amazon and Ikea.

  7. I think this one is my favourite. I love the idea of having a vanity and a hanging picture between the wall of shoes. It may take space away from storing additional shoes but it looks amazing. These shelves were purchased at Ikea and were easy to install.

  13. If you don’t like the look of the clear boxes, another alternative is to use non-clear boxes and put pictures of the shoes on the outside of the box. To keep it looking tidy, use the same style box for each pair of shoes.

As you can see, there are many fun and different ways to organize shoes. The key is to keep them off the floor and have them neat and organized so it saves you time. No more looking through a pile of shoes, and even worst, finding a shoe you want to wear but not being able to find the match. Finding only one shoe can be frustrating!

    The most appealing picture is the one with the full size shelves and a picture in the middle – that’s gorgeous, but I also like the idea of using magazine holders for flats, especially brilliantly coloured ones like that!

      Janet, the one with the full size shelves and the picture in the middle is my favourite too! The magazine holders are cute and the other good thing is that they cost less than having shelving made.
