40 Ingenious Ways To Store Your Shoe Collection!

40 Ingenious Ways To Store Your Shoe Collection

Taming an ever expanding shoe collection can be quite a Herculean challenge, especially when your family members are absolutely nuts over shoes!

In fact, shoe storage is one of the most overlooked areas during the renovation process. This is because many homeowners failed to realize that shoe storage goes beyond shelves and simple cabinets. Furthermore, apart from the volume of shoes, aesthetics and functionality, the other factors which will affect your choice of shoe storage solution include the types of shoes you have and their usage frequency.

Therefore, you should spend some time deliberating and planning how best to store and display the shoes with your renovation professionals.

Nevertheless, I have gathered 40 gorgeous stylish and practical shoe storage ideas, from custom shelving, re-purposed wooden crates to vintage cabinets! Hopefully by observing how other shoe fanatics display and organise their precious stiletto and sneaker collections, you can find inspiration for creating your very own dream shoe closet!

Re-purposed old wooden crates and pallets are excellent, inexpensive shoe storage solutions, especially for slippers and sneakers. In addition, they are easily replaceable once they are dirty.
