How to Choose a Closet Design Company

Shoe Storage

After a long day out of the house, there’s one thing we can all agree on – kicking off our shoes! Whether it’s at the front, back, or garage door, the entrance to your living space is surely a high-traffic area. There’s no better time to strategically store and organize your shoes with the help of Saint Louis Closet Co. and our savvy shoe storage tips.

The first step in organizing your shoes is knowing how many you have. While the average man has 12 -15 pairs of shoes, the average woman has 25 – 40 pairs. Think about how often you wear (or don’t wear!) each pair.

Walk-in, reach-in, and kids’ closets are the perfect locations for storing shoes. The average hanging clothing item is 20″ deep, compared to shoes that measure 12” – 14” in depth. Placing your shoe storage system directly inside your closet door will instantly maximize your closet space. Just grab and go!

Bonus: instead of wasting space on your shelves, make room inside of your drawers where you can slip flat sandals and flip-flops. Space them out with drawer dividers and simplify your life a little!

While an organized closet is the perfect home your shoes deserve, laundry rooms and mudrooms are perfect temporary storage spaces. Add shoe shelves into each room and thank yourself later!
