Do you love shopping for shoes more than anything else? If so, you'd know that there is no greater disaster than not having a special spot in your closet to showcase your latest purchase. If your home is plagued with tiny cabinets or you have wardrobes designed for people who own no more than three pairs, you might have to do a few tweaks. Make room for more footwear finds with these creative ideas: 


A wooden ladder is a budget-friendly way to add multi-level shoe storage in your entryway. As a bonus, it will keep your foyer from being clutterd, too.

RL Tip: Save this spot for pairs you wear often to have easy access. 


If your home comes with built-in shelves but you aren't a big reader, use it to your advantage by turning it into a shoe rack. Since your collection will be out in the open, keep it visually appealing by cleaning your shoes regularly. 


If you’re more of a flats and sandals person, a couple of high-quality baskets would do for storage. Can't find one made specifically for shoes? A heavy-duty, multi-layer magazine rack does the trick, too. 


Don't let a spare utility closet go unused! Invest in adding shelving to turn it into a permanent place for your favorite pairs. 

RL Tip: Don't forget to air the closet out every now and then. Shoes retain moisture and storing them in a closed space run the risk of foul odors. 


For those who are willing to splurge, a custom-made ottoman can add a boutique vibe to your walk-in closet. This is a great multipurpose piece, too—it can double as seating for your space.
