Footwear Organization 101

Feb 23, 2016 03:39AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Lifestyle

Under the couch, at the entry of every door and randomly scattered throughout your home. Because they serve so many uses and come in so many colors, it's no wonder shoes can be the most difficult wardrobe staple to keep organized.

Slip on these shoe storage tips to make containing your favorite footwear a breeze:

Chic shelving
An old bookshelf is the perfect shoe organizer for those blessed with walk-in closets, or who enjoy displaying their heavenly heels out in the open. Bookshelves with varying depth make it perfect to group by height of shoe type (i.e. tall boots on one level, short flats on the next and so on).

Baby shoe solutions
A visit to your local hobby store can solve your baby and toddler shoe storage woes. A simple, wooden thread rack makes a great place to hang adorable little shoes on each peg. These wall-mounted racks are easy to paint to match any toddler's décor.

Rustic and repurposed
For those with an admiration for the rustic look, find a warehouse pallet. These large wooden frames have spaced slots for various types of footwear. Rest it against the wall for the perfect worn-in organizer for those wedges.

Climbing shoes
A brightly painted ladder resting on the wall is a unique way to show off your prettiest pumps and peep-toes. Simply let the heels dangle off each rung of the ladder for a storage solution that doubles as artwork.

Basic storage makeover
Do you have a basic, two-tiered shoe rack? Step out of the norm and turn that boring white or wood rack into a colorful display that complements your décor. With just a brush and a can of your favorite paint hue, simple racks can be transformed into a vibrant piece of furniture. Go ahead, flaunt those flip-flops.

So, assess your space, the number of shoes you own and get let these helpful tips work for your family. After all, no one likes a heaping pile at the bottom of the closet, or a mismatched mess of shoes under the bed.
