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.

For the fashionista who has more shoes than clothes, it's wise to consider how these favorite items are showcased. ClosetMaid has created the perfect system for pumps, boots and flats to take center stage.

With the right materials, a boy's closet can be just as mature as an adult's closet. Designed by Wellborn Cabinet, Inc., this maple shelving system with a sienna stain adds a sophisticated touch to a boy's bedroom. Wooden cubbies provide an attractive way to store shoes and hats.

While many shoe cabinets have open shelving, you can also install a shoe caddy with dividers for individual pairs.

Keep the look clean with doors — either swinging or drop-down – and consider attaching them to the wall, to make them more secure and to create more space in hallways and other tight spaces.

Modular storage drawers, available in wood, laminate and metal, offer a more modern look.

Shoe caddies are also available in affordable options in a variety of styles and materials.
