Shoe Storage and Organization Ideas


I’m not really sure how many pairs of shoes I actually own at any given time, but I do like shoes. And boots. And sandals. And flip flops. But where do we keep them all? Luckily there are a lot of options.

Open Shelving

  • slotted shelves improve ventilation and drying
  • shelving can be on walls, under seating or in the form of free standing racks
  • well suited for men’s sized shoes
  • narrow row shelving can be incorporated in bedroom walk-in closets

Hanging Shoe Racks

  • easy to reach and see shoes
  • fit over door or on closet rod
  • most are sized for smaller women’s shoes

Boot Trays

  • probably the easiest method of shoe and boot storage

Shoe Cabinets

  • the convenience of open shelving with the added feature of closing doors to hide the shoes
  • great for entryways where the only place to store shoes is visible

Clear Containers

  • a neat way to store less frequently worn footwear
  • makes it easy to spot the pair you want
  • protects tall boots which are often scuffed and damaged if loosely stored amongst other footwear

Revolving Shoe Trees

  • makes finding the right pair easy
  • a good use of vertical space

Under the Bed Storage

  • great for small apartments
  • hides clutter

Bench Storage

  • benches are great for putting on and taking off our shoes, so we might as well utilize the space under them
  • some have bins or cupboards if you want hidden storage
