Creative DIY Shoe Organization Ideas

If you live in a city with a notorious lack of storage and space, you have no choice but to get creative when decluttering your home. So, if you're looking to save space or just reorganize your home in 2014, check out some of my favorite finds for storing that all important fashion accessory: shoes!


When it comes to creative home storage ideas, there seem to be plenty of suggestions for jewlery, clothes and bags, but what about all of your fancy footwear? Rather than hide them away in the back of a closet, why not display them in a unique way? Here of some of my favorite ways to showcase shoes that will work for even the smallest of bedroom spaces:

Use a Ladder for Elevated Storage

Ladders aren't just for home repairs anymore! Get those beautiful shoes up of the floor with this idea from blogger Arianna Belle. Displaying your high-heels on each rung will not only save you a ton of space, it will add a beautiful, interesting element to your room.

Repurpose Vintage Crates

Looking to add a vintage element to your space? You can easily transform a milk crate into a unique shoe storage unit. Follow this simple DIY project from The Crafted Niche to create your own. Paint the crates bright colors to match the decor of your room or leave them as is for the perfect rustic look. 

Add a Colorful Touch with Crown Molding

Using a few pieces of crown molding, which you can find at your local lumberyard, recreate this DIY idea featured on Living in a Nutshell. Use clear rubber bumper pads to keep the shoes from sliding off and your collection will be ready to display!

Create Organized Rows with Hangers

Now that we've covered a few options for storing your high-heels, how about an ultra creative solution for storing all those sandals and flats? This DIY featured on Oh So Pretty shows you how to use plain ol' clothes hangers in a new and unique way. Using just wire hangers, screws and yarn, you will have the perfect way to display all those shoes!

Don't forget about the kiddos! 

If you are looking to organize shoes for a little guy or gal, try using a wooden pallet like the one below. Simply sand and paint a pallet and place it parallel to the wall. This will hold all of their sneakers and boots and is perfect for a bedroom or mudroom.
