Closet Design Crush: Shoe Shelving

 

Closets and dressing rooms — I love them so much when they are spacious, organized, and yes, color coordinated.  I am totally one of those people.  Someday when I design a home for my husband and I, I’m definitely going to include ample shoe storage in the form of beautiful shelving, and my shoesies are going to be totally coordinated.  Just try and stop me!  ;-)

I have read some concerns online when it comes to height constrictions for shoe shelving.  Some people worry that having a shelving unit for your shoes can turn out for the worse if you have a pair of shoes that is too tall for your shelf.  There is a simple answer to this!  Measure your highest shoe and have your designer make the plans according to that measurement — builders do this with custom kitchen cabinetry all the time when it comes to serving pieces, glass height, etc.  That’s why it’s custom!

For me, shoe shelving is a total plus (and luxury!) because I like to be able to see all of my options right in front of me.  I’m a pretty visual person, so if a bunch of my shoes (or clothes) are tucked far and away in deep crevices and corners of my closet, I forget about them!  In the apartments that my husband and I have lived in, we have had shoe shelving in our closets, and the one time that we didn’t, I simply used the linen closet in our bedroom.  Use what you have, you know?

I think it’s great when shoe shelving is mixed with handbag storage, as well.  Personally, I like handbags on the upper shelves and shoes on the lower shelves — I think it’s a really clean, luxe look!

What do you think about shoe shelving in a closet or dressing room?  Do you have this luxury?  Are you a color-coordinated person like me?  Do you forget about your shoes if they’re lost in the clutter?  ;-)
