Shoes can quickly get out of hand in a closet and shoe organizer racks are the best way to keep them orderly and in pairs for when you need to locate your favorite shoes. You probably have been in a situation where you have very little time and are searching for a particular pair of shoes, but you cannot locate them anywhere. Either that, or you find just the one shoe, the other shoe is missing in action somewhere in the closet.
This is not only very frustrating, but now you are likely going to be late for whatever event you are going to because you can’t find the shoes you need. This tragic scenario can be easily avoided by organizing your shoes with shoe racks. Your shoes are now all visible and laid out for you to easily locate any shoes that you need plus using racks is a better use of the vertical space in your closet.
Many people have (need) a lot of different pairs of shoes. When you think about footwear, there are not only seasonal types of footwear, but also casual and dress styles. Sorting these into different categories in your closet makes is another component of organizing an expanding collection of shoes. In other words, if you have a bit of a shoe habit, a well-organized storage space means more room for your growing collection.
There are many styles of shoe organizing systems, certainly a type or style that works best in your particular situation. For example:
• Over the door organizers are perfect for smaller closets. These consist of a long sheet, generally made out of canvas, with pockets in them for the shoes and hooks that allow it to hang over the back of your door. This also reserves much needed floor space in smaller closets for other items that you need to store.
• Shoe cubes or plastic shoe boxes can be purchased separately and stacked in various shapes to suit your style and available storage space. These are also a good option for a larger closet, where you have the space to stack the cubes (clear is best so you can see which shoes are in each box) and cubes can be added as new pairs are added to your collection.
• Circular revolving racks or shoe trees – these turn 360 degrees and fit nicely into a walk in closet or even a medium-sized closet. Average capacity is about 24 pairs.
• Drawer modules are available for various closet organizers, so if you are either thinking of installing an organizer or you already have one, you can purchase the drawers that match to store your footwear.
Another thing to consider when you are looking into shoe organizer racks is to add another smaller unit to store footwear accessories, such as polishes, brushes and wax. If you have a family, you may want to consider separate units for ladies’, mens’ and children’s shoes.
