Fantastic Shoe Closet Ideas We Can Get From Celebrities
See how Pauleen Luna, Toni Gonzaga, Anne Curtis, and other celebs store and protect their YSL's and Louboutins!
Closets—these are the private spaces in our homes that contain our passions and obsessions. And girls and guys alike are definitely obsessed with shoes. But you don’t want to keep your prized collection stashed haphazardly in boxes in your hallway.
Get your cue from celebs and their immaculately organized shoe closets. They sure know a thing or two, as their shoes usually run to hundreds, and they would need to have each one perfectly organized and clearly visible, so that it’s easy to choose a stunning pair for a rehearsal, show, or awards night. Try their shoe closet tricks now:
Toni & Alex Gonzaga: Revolving organizers
When sisters Toni and Alex Gonzaga were still living in their family home in Taytay, they shared an amazing shoe closet that had revolving shoe organizers. These organizers can be rotated to reveal the shoes on either side (front or back) for easy viewing and access. Brilliant!
Kim Chiu: Glass-front closets
Kim stores her Louboutin, Chanel, Tory Burch, and Gucci shoes behind glass-front cabinet doors. The glass doors protect the pairs from dust and dirt, but will allow the homeowner to view all the shoes at once for easy selection.
Jennylyn Mercado: Organized by type
We usually see Jennylyn all glammed up for TV, but in reality, she’s a fitness buff and spends her days in gym clothes biking, running, or doing yoga and pilates. That’s why her shoe closet stores different kinds of shoes, but these are organized by type and use, so that it’s easy for her to choose depending on what she’s doing that day. Trainers are all grouped together, high heels are on one side, walking boots and flats on another side, and so forth.
Anne Curtis: Boutique-like
Instead of being stashed in a different area, Anne’s shoes are grouped in a shoe cabinet within her walk-in-closet in her condo. This makes it easier for her to put together an outfit, as her dresses, tops, pants, and even accessories are stored in customized drawers and cabinets, much like a high-end boutique.
Bea Alonzo: Lighted shelves
We’ve all been there—digging through a dark closet, looking for our shoes and clothes. Bea Alonzo keeps her shoes in plain sight and easy-to-view with shelves that are fitted with a light in the cove above it. This is quite easy to do in your own home—ask an electrician to fit out and install T3 LED light bulbs in the little space above your shelves. If you have closet doors, you can have him wire it so that the light automatically switches on when you open the doors.
James Yap: Mirrored doors
It’s expected that this basketball superstar would have dozens of trainers and basketball shoes in his bachelor pad. These are neatly stashed in a wardrobe system that has customized mirrored cabinet doors, making it easy for the cager to get dressed. You can have luxe cabinets like these customized at Rimadesio.
Pauleen Luna: Sleek, wood finishes
Pauleen lived in this modern family home in Quezon City prior to marrying Vic Sotto, and she had this enviable 50sqm walk-in-closet. What makes this closet extra-special and stylish are the wood finishes on every surface, even on the shoe shelves. You can have a luxurious closet customized at Porro, at Kuysen Enterprises.
