4 Shoe Closet Styling Ideas From Renegade Folk
Is your collection too big for your small space? Learn how you can keep your pairs in check
Tired of digging through boxes every time you're looking for a pair you want to wear? Don't fret, we've got solutions that won't only make your closet more functional, it'll make it look extra pretty, too. Here are more helpful tips to keep in mind:
1. Hang it up!
Do you still have that spare mesh rack in your garage? With a little cleaning and polishing, you can use that as an avante garde shoe storage! Hang your prettiest pairs with shoe lasts for an instant closet vignette.
RL Tip: For racks with solid surfaces, use 3M hooks to hang your shoes on.
Find similar shoe lasts at Urban Abode, CW Home Depot Ortigas Compound, J. Vargas Ave. cor. Meralco Ave, Pasig City.
2. Pile them in bins.
In lieu of the usual boxes or racks, you can try using bins as they are perfect for storing flats and sandals. For a fun touch, consider storing shoes of the same color family per bin—this will make it easier for you to grab what you need.
3. Go vertical.
A ladder-type bookcase or shelf can help you display your favorite pairs of heels as well. If you want to make it more interesting, add your favorite books or framed artwork for a boutique-style vignette.
4. Boot up!
When storing tall shoes like boots, it can be challenging to find a way to keep them standing upright. Laying them flat can make it easier. For those who have benches that have storage underneath, use that extra space to stow away your knee-high pairs.
RL Tip: No space to lay your boots down? Use rolled-up magazines or newspaper to keep your pairs in shape.
