Shoes are an eternal bane in the hallway, which we trip over when we enter the apartment. Stuffed into cupboards or cardboard boxes. How best to store shoes and where to find a place for them?
Special shoe rack
To store shoes in a cabinet and take care of their good condition, such furniture should meet several conditions. First of all, it should be high enough. It would be good if it had several levels, and the distance between them was big enough to fit winter boots inside. Remember to always line up your shoes and put them clean into the cabinet
You probably won’t have room for your whole shoe collection in one shoebox. So make sure you change the shoes in your locker every season so you always have the pair you want to wear close at hand. Put your shoebox in a convenient spot in the hall. By the door, by the coat rack or by the mirror.
A very popular solution, which we can also find in Polish homes. The variety of models available on the market makes it easy for you to find one which will perfectly fit into your hallway decor. You will fit less pairs of shoes on the rack than in the cupboard. The minus is that all of them are “in plain sight”, which for some people may not be aesthetically pleasing. However, it is certainly very convenient to use.
Boxes & Cases
Despite appearances, storing shoes in boxes has many supporters! The biggest advantage? Closed boxes protect shoes from dust and deformation. In a box, they will safely survive until the next season. Another advantage of such way of storage is perfect organization. If you have little space in your closet and a lot of shoes, boxes arranged in a tower will take up much less space.
Do you love handmade furniture? Do you have decoupage chairs in your kitchen and a pallet table in your living room? Then you’ll definitely be one of those people who would love to put something out of the ordinary in their hallway. Use apple crates, for example. All you have to do is paint them in a color that suits your interior and place them on their side so that the bottom of the box sticks to the wall. It can hold two or even three pairs of shoes that you use most often.
