Home Inspiration: Shoes Glorious Shoes

Recently (after realising that leaving all my heels strewn over the place was puppy chewing central) I have been faced with the idea of HOW to store all my shoes. All my shoes being an accurate description, as like my grandmother before me, I seem to have developed hoarder tendancies, albeit with more Louboutin and less crazy cats.

I have stumbled across a number of chic options that I am considering to store my shoes, most of which as super easy to DIY!

Glass Cabinet/Wardrobe

This is the perfect way to display your shoe collection in a luxe and beautiful way. Find or repurpose an antique or shabby chic cabinet with a glass or clear front for a unique shoe storage solution. Lets face it, some shoes are works of art so why not display it in lieu of Grandma’s china?

Ladder Shoe Rack

This is a super cute idea, but wont hold that many shoes at one time, so you are going to have to have a secondary storage solution. Nonetheless, grabbing an old ladder for display in the bedroom, for storing heels in high rotation.

Molding/ Wall Mounts

Decorative molding is a pretty way to display your favourite shoes, but again is not a holistic solution. You could also consider curtain rods or wall mounts.


This sounds like its obvious, and really, it is! Head to Ikea or Fantastic Furniture, and pick up cheap white or black shelving for a quick, easy and effective way to store and display your shoes.

Bonus: Shoes are the #1 culprit for tracking dirt into the house, and so your closet can end up getting a little dirty over time. Try keeping a convenient and cheap vacuum in the closet to quickly clean up any messes.

    Well, these make my shoe “collection” look rather dismal.
