Thankfully, the team at Maid Right is here to help out. As leading house cleaning experts, we know a thing or two about clean, well-organized spaces. So we’ve collected a few of our favorite shoe organization tips below to help you breathe new energy into your home.
Keep Shoes Where They’re Out of the Way
One of the easiest ways to save your home from a shoe overload is to keep shoes out of high-traffic areas. To solve this issue, consider the following strategies:
- Keep the front entranceway reserved for shoes that belong to company and visitors.
- Relocate your family’s shoes to the garage where they can be easily accessed.
- Store seasonal footwear out of the way when not in use.
- For special occasion footwear, create storage space in your bedroom or closet.
Repurpose Dressers & Shelving
For attractive storage solutions, dressers and bookshelves are perfect for storing and hanging shoes. You can use these kinds of furniture and fixtures to double or triple the amount of shoe storage space you have, without spending extra money on items that are supposedly built just for shoes. Some popular economy alternatives to these items include pegged coat racks, pocket shoe hangers, and stacked crates/boxes.
Use Photo Tags and Shoe Boxes
This one is for the true shoe addicts. One great way to store your shoes is to use shoe boxes that have photo tags for easy identification. This makes shoes easy to stack, makes them easy to identify, keeps them free of dust, and, with the right materials, produces a super-neat and super-attractive storage appearance.
Use Molding to Hang Heels
If you’ve got a habit for heels, one of the most eye-catching tricks you can use to store shoes is with molding or a towel rod. A number of molding styles project out from whatever wall they are installed on, creating a lip that’s perfect for hanging heels. One of our favorite tricks is to install molding around the top of a walk-in closet. This then becomes a perfect storage space for your heels.
