A few ideas for storing shoes

If you have a big house then you can find enough space for storing everything, including all the two hundred pairs of shoes that your wife has collected over the years. So you simply order a special closet only for the shoes with narrow shelves and problem solved. Well, it’s a lot more difficult when you have a small home or you live in an apartment. In this case you will do anything to gain some space, but be able to store the shoes in good conditions as you don’t want to ruin them for the next season. Any way, if you are one of those guys who is desperate to find some ideas for storing shoes in the least space possible, you might want to take a look at these pictures where you can see some brilliant ideas that are both simple and efficient.

The first picture shows some very small shelves that are specially designed to fix only the tip of the shoes and keeps them sort of suspended in the air. You simply fix them to the wall and make the most of the tiniest corner in your hallway. It’s not very hard to make and you can get these shelves in a matter of minutes if you have some pieces of painted wood. And if you are not a handy person, just ask a carpenter to do that for you and you will see it’s pretty cheap. Or you can use metallic shelves instead – it’s totally up to you.

This may look like a coat rack, but it’s actually used for shoes. Use your imagination and you will get personalized designs and colors for these shoe racks.

How about these unusual “pockets” used for storing shoes in the most comfortable and secure way? If you use a transparent material you will be able to find just the pair of shoes you were looking for in no time.
