Organize by Style
If you tend to wear different types of shoes, flats, pumps, boots, etc., then you can organize your shoes by style. This way, you can go straight to the style that you want for the day without having to look through tons of tennis shoes when you are heading out to the office. You can even take it a step further if you have a lot of shoes and organize them by style and then by color.

Turn Shelves into Organizers
If you have the space, you can just add a few shelves to your closet to hold your shoes. Adding shelving to one wall is a great way to keep all of your shoes together and have plenty of space for other things. This works best if you do have a rather large walk-in closet but you can put up new shelves in any closet where you have an empty wall.

Use a Bookshelf
Bookshelves are great for organizing just about anything and you can use them to keep your shoe collection tidy as well. If you have room to build in the bookshelf in the closet, great. If not, you can just keep your shoes organized on the shelf in your bedroom or master bath – just wherever you have the room for it. Consider building it into the bedroom wall to save space and have the perfect place to keep shoes and other accessories organized.

Finding the Ultimate Space
There are so many places where you can store your shoes. If you have the room to create shelves then you can put them in your master bedroom or closet. You can also use a vanity shelf to store them neatly and even those smaller shelves that hang on the walls are perfect for keeping shoes off the floor. Use your imagination when creating your shoe storage space.

Hanging Shoe Storage
With a few strips of board, you can create the perfect place to hang your heels in the closet. You just need the strips nailed or screwed to the wall, making sure that they are level. Then you just have to hang those heels on the strips by the heel. This works well for smaller spaces and you can get several pairs of shoes on one strip.

This thing holds so many shoes! It’s wonderful for organizing the closet, and will fit perfectly on the shelf above where I currently hold my shoes. You can easily get five or six pair on each section, and there are three sections, so you can imagine how many shoes you can organize. It took a bit of time to put together, but once I got it done, it’s as sturdy as any shoe shelf I’ve seen, and it’s lightweight but still durable enough to hold heavier shoes and boots.

Tailor Shoe Storage
Getting the perfect shoe storage depends on the types of shoes that you wear. If you have several pairs of boots then you want shelving that is going to be taller on bottom to accommodate those boots. If you wear a lot of flip-flops then you can have several smaller shelves for holding those and other sizes for the other types that you wear. Keep your shoe collection in mind when choosing the organization method.

Behind the Door Storage
If you just don’t have the room in your closet for shoe storage, consider putting shelving up behind your bedroom door. Just a few pieces of boards and the hardware to hang them will allow you plenty of places to keep shoes and you can add as many shelves as you need depending on how much space you put between them. This keeps your shoes hidden from view as long as the door is open.

Build a Garage Shoe Storage System
If you have shoes in the garage, you can build your own system to store these shoes and keep them off the floor. This is a great idea for those who have muddy shoes or rain boots. Not only does it keep these items out of the house, the storage system keeps them neat and tidy in the garage and building it is relatively easy. You just need a few boards and other supplies and a day or two to devote to the project.
