How To Organize Your Shoe Collection

Having a wide shoe choice is a privilege that is paired with a constant struggle of keeping them at least somewhat organized.

 As usual, decluttering is the first rule of home organization. So, before thinking about how to organize your shoes, decide which ones you’re ready to get rid of/give away. Old and outworn pairs, the ones you never reach out to and really uncomfortable ones shouldn’t occupy extra space on your racks.

 

1.SORT SHOES INTO CATEGORIES

Organize your shoes into groups. First, divide your shoes into two categories:

1. The shoes you wear all the time

2. The shoes you wear less frequently

The ones you wear less frequently (think stilettos or snow boots) should be stored, as Aron puts it, “up high and far away. ”Now it’s time to categorize the remaining everyday shoes even further. Similar styles should stick together. Shoes you wear to work should be in one group. Shoes you’d wear out to dinner might be in another group, and shoes suited for doing a lot of walking could be in a third group.

Think of the activity you’d wear each pair of shoes for, so that when it’s time for you to head out for that event, you know exactly where to look.

 

2.KEEP YOUR SHOES OFF THE FLOOR

It makes your shoes harder to find when everything is flopped over each other in a big space. They’re also more likely to get beat up when you’re constantly moving pairs aside in search for your favourate flip flops.

If you insist on sticking with the floor plan, though, implement some basic shoe organization.

 

3.MYSTERIOUS AND MODERN SHOE STORAGE

The thing with storing shoes in sleek and sophisticated rooms is to make it as invisible as possible.

Thereof, start cleaning the shoe mess you’ve pilled in the corner, and tuck it away where it won’t be seen.

 

4.SHOE STORAGE PLUS DRESSING AREAS

We know for sure ladies wouldn’t refuse a decorative millwork closet with built-in vanities and glass doors.

For them, this will be a complete dress up area enhanced with personalized ornaments, but they will find it far more practical with shoe closets neatly tucked behind the doors.

Due the varying height of different layers, girls can use such closets for all shoes including heels.

 

5.CHIC PULL-OUT RACKS

To the surprise of some, there isn’t that much functionality involved in shoe racks after all.

All it takes is to see what you’re picking, hide it neatly with traditional covers, and pull it out once the time comes.

The market is packed with shelved cabinets that can assemble entire collections and help you find everything easily.

 

6.DISCREET CABINETS

Deep and shallow cabinets come in the most appropriate shoe storing sizes and won’t attract more attention than what is needed.

You can make them look more understated by keeping their doors closed, or use it as open and decorative pieces for other types of items.

 

7.STORING SHOES IN BOXES

Well, boxes are not exactly the rocket science of storage, but with just slightly more creativity you can turn them into the favourite  items you have at home.

Boxes look organized by default, and blend easily in modern and organized settings, as they are available in all sizes and colors.

We also recommend them for storing items other than shoes, as they look great in every room of the house.

 

8.THE COLOUR SHOE RACK

Stick to color, style and season coordination. Flats, heels, trainers, boots and sandals should go their separate ways. Nude, bright, brown and black shoes should stick together. Your shoe racks will look a lot prettier this way. And, your shoe choosing process will be much faster and easier.

 

9.POCKET ORGANIZER

 

If you have a door in your closet, you can hang them on the back {or even front} of the door using a pocket organizer.

 

10.FLIP FLOPS RACK

11.HOOK SHOE ORGANIZER

The small hooks that your flip flops come on from the store are perfect for using again and then clipping to a plastic hanger.

 

12.MAGAZINE SHOE RACK

  Using a magazine file for holding flip flops looks really nice and is easy too.

 

13.CD SHOE RACK

Here is a thrift store CD rack turned into a flip flop organizer!

 

 

14.GET SOME SHOE BINS

Shoe bins are stackable, they’re widely available, and they’re usually transparent. They can store much of your shoe collection (except for tall stuff like boots and high-tops) in individual, easy-to-see spots.

 

15.SANDAL HOLDERS USING WIRE HANGERS

shoe storage ideas is fitting sandals and flats onto ordinary wire hangers. To do this, cut the bottom rung off a few wire hangers. Next, use a plier to bend the ends into curled hooks.

Shape regular hangers into special hangers for your flip-flop sandals.
