Closet doors are an often underutilized part of a closet or room, especially when they're only hiding the mess inside! Over-the-door racks can be an effective way to organize while maximizing limited space. There is a wide array of styles and materials, offering options that fit a variety of lifestyles and storage needs.

The pocket style over-the-door racks are usually large enough to accommodate a pair of shoes for ladies or children but may only fit one shoe per pocket for men's styles. They do prevent dust from accumulating and you can see the whole shoe. They are handy in other rooms of the house for household tools, toys and supplies. Hiding them is super easy; just close the door.
