10 of the Best Shoe Storage Ideas Discovered by our Editors

Our editors were looking for the best shoe storage ideas on the market today from DIY to custom build to products that can be purchased.  It was interesting research when we compared all the different solutions and thought about them side by side.  Our findings found that there are many inexpensive solutions such as door hanging units or models that fit under a bed that are quite easy to use in a home.   The ten we focused on were more permanent solutions and therefore were a bit more costly than a simple hanger with vinyl sleeves.

Our readers often note how much of an issue this is in nearly any size or age home.  Just having a big closet does not mean that the space is configured in a way that is suitable for storage.  Therefore, it’s important to find a fix for today and one that will address the future as well.  Take a look at what we found and see if you get inspired about possibilities in your own home.

The above model is a bit more industrial in appearance which is why we chose it.  Not matter what your home design is there are options available.  Another suggestion here could be a shoe storage bench so that seating would be readily available when people are removing their footwear.
