Walk-In Closet With Wall of Shoe Storage

This walk-in closet is a shoe lover's paradise. With clean white shelving dedicated solely to shoe storage, shoes are organized and displayed in style.

Designer Lisa Adams of LA Closet Design suggests maximizing storage space by adjusting the spacing of the shelves. "Most people have their shoe shelves spaced evenly. However, in order to maximize space, they should be adjusted and based on the height of your shoes."

Backlit Shoe Storage in Walk-In Closet

A wall of backlit shelving turns shoe storage into a boutique-like display in this luxury closet.

Adding custom shelving is the easiest way to keep clothes, shoes and accessories off the closet (or bedroom) floor. Arranging shoes and clothes by color also makes it easier to keep things organized and put together an outfit.

These shoe racks were designed for the man of the house. They features racks spaced closer together, not suitable for a woman's high-heels, but ideal for a man and to maximize apace.

Having a specific spot for every pair of shoes, bag and shirt makes getting dressed a breeze. A spiral shirt rack keeps button-downs and delicate tops fresh and wrinkle-free.

They're available in a variety of styles that can complement many rooms and decors. Open-front benches, cubbie style storage, shelf storage, bin-style benches and ottomans can be used to store and organize shoes for everyone in a household.

Open-front benches have cubbies and shelves under the seating that protect shoes from damage and dust while providing for easy access. The same storage options are available with doors and reduce damage from dust accumulation and sun exposure.

Bin style benches open from the front and often can provide storage for a large number of shoes. They are attractive additions to hallways, entryways and bedrooms. Cabinets at box stores that are meant to be hung above refrigerators can be used on the floor with a cushion and turned instantly into an attractive and effective bench.

Ottoman benches are suitable for most rooms, lifestyles and decors. They open from the top and hide the shoes while also protecting them from damage, dust and exposure to sun. This style of shoe storage is convenient for family rooms, entertainment rooms and both entryways and bedrooms.
