Have Special Shoe Storage Needs..?
For example - those with expensive shoes are not going to store them in the same way they would their tennis shoes. Different rules apply for some than they do for others.
Whether you have expensive shoes - a smaller closet or a walk in closet - there are shoe storage tips you can use.
If not, it's best to find cardboard boxes to store these expensive shoes in, keeping a picture of the pair on the outside for reference. You want to use cardboard instead of plastic because this will allow the shoe to breathe while plastic containers can hold moisture, while can ruin the fabric of the shoes.
If you can, try to store these shoes without stacking them as any added pressure on the shoes can lead to damage as well.
Smaller ClosetWhen you don't have a lot of space for shoe storage - you have a number of options. If you can - a shoe rack is the best way to add shoe storage at the bottom of your closet where space is generally underutilized.
If this is not possible - try one of the hanging shoe racks which can hang from the clothing rod or from the back of the door to the closet.
The only trick with these options is that you need to measure the shoe pockets to be sure they are big enough for your shoes.
In this case - you will want to create some sort of shoe rack at the bottom of your closet space with a rotating setup - if possible. This will help you see all of the shoes you have without taking up more space.
You might also want to arrange your shoes by color and use so that you know exactly what you have and where it would be when you need it.
Shoe storage is not an exact science - especially since everyone's shoe habits are different.
But organizing your shoes can be simple when you realize what you have to work with - what you consider important - and how organized you already are.
