Gone are the days when shoes are merely used to cover our feet. Today, they are a fashion statement—something that can reflect your mood and personality. Who says you should only be able to enjoy the beauty of your most-coveted pairs while wearing them? Show them extra love by putting them on display at home! Ease the burden of your overflowing closet with these ideas from Instagram:
Utilizing the extra room under your bed is the ultimate space-saving hack! To keep you from breaking your back when pulling your shoes out, consider investing in these wheeled steel racks. The best part? If you decide to move your storage, you can easily push it to a different part of the house.
It's safe to say nobody enjoys rummaging through a pile of shoes when you're rushing in the morning—not only that, piling them on top of each other causes scuffs. Create better access to your favorite pairs by investing in drawer dividers and arranging your shoes by how often you wear them.
For bigger and more extensive collections, acrylic boxes can go a long way. As your footwear pile continues to grow, you can just keep adding one plastic crate on top of the other—just make sure to wipe them down regularly to avoid dust marks.
If you're willing to splurge a little more, you can upgrade the acrylic pieces into glass boxes. This idea is great for more expensive (or even designer) pairs that you own to prevent discoloration.
If you want to go for a more vintage look, you can salvage some old school lockers for shoe storage at your local junk shop. You can even go as far as painting a mural on each door for the perfect 70s vibe.
