Shoes, shoes and more shoes; yes, but where to store them? Obviously, in the shoe cabinet. But if we told you that there are many cool and design alternative ideas to this piece of furniture? Well yes, we must admit that shoe racks do not always satisfy the trends of the moment, but it is often the fault of the too standard and simple shape, which does not do justice to a truly indispensable piece of furniture if you want to have more order in the home.
Recovering an old ladder
If you want to make a DIY shoe cabinet you could recover an old ladder and add wooden shelves. A useful and fun way
Stored in a trendy piece of furniture
If the idea of inserting a real shoe rack makes you turn up your nose, why not use that piece of furniture you like so much as an alternative? You can place all the shoes, side by side, on the appropriate shelves.
Under a bench at the entrance
An easy solution that will allow you to furnish the entrance as well is to take advantage of the lower part of a bench by using baskets to store the shoes that are used most often.
In transparent boxes
If you are a fan of your shoe collection there is no better way to store them than in beautiful clear boxes. Be careful, however, to insert well-kept and cared for shoes otherwise you will risk the sloppy effect.
Fix to the wall
Are you looking for a low cost idea? Go to the hardware store, retrieve a large mesh grid and place it against the wall: your shoe cabinet will be ready in no time.
In a bookstore
A super cool idea, and perfect to be instagrammed, is to use an old bookcase (perhaps vintage and pickled, to display the most beautiful shoes in your collection.
In a recovered trunk
Another trendy idea, alternative to the usual shoe cabinet, is to use a recovery trunk, perhaps restoring it. This solution will allow you to save space and tidy up your home in a fast and super simple way.
Under the bed
Put your shoes under the bed is the best known solution. There are several ways to do this, using boxes, or the containers found in modern beds, or if you love to furnish with pallets, you can make a DIY shoe rack.
