Shoe Organization for Small Closets


Our first house was built in the 1950s, and had the traditional small closets. Having four kids and teensy tiny closets forced me to be more creative with the storage of everything, including shoes. So if you want to learn more about shoe organization for small closets, you’ve come to the right place!

There are a few factors that go into having great shoe organization. First, you have to have a limit on the number of shoes in the closet. I know, it’s hard. But you don’t have to get rid of them. You can store off season shoes in another place, like under the bed.

Next, you need to make the shoes accessible. I like to be able to see my shoes, so that I can decide which will go with my outfit. There are a few ways that you can do that. Here are the most common options:

  • Over the door shoe rack – This hangs from the back of the closet door. How many it holds depends on how big of a a door you have. Most will hold between 16-20 pairs of shoes.
  • Floor shoe rack – This is a little harder to see, but there are racks that you can place under your shorter clothes. There are also ones that you can stack and store more shoes in. I usually kept my gym shoes on floor, and hung up my dress shoes.
  • Shoe boxes – You know that shelf on the top of your closet? You can use that to store your shoes in shoe boxes. Clear boxes are nice to be able to see your shoes. Or you can take a picture, print it out, and tape it to the front of the box to be able to locate your shoes easily.
  • Hanging shoe rack – This isn’t something I did, but I have seen people use shoe racks that hang from the clothing rod. This only works if you don’t have as many clothes.

I always kept my off season shoes in boxes under the bed. You can either use the original shoe boxes, or clear plastic boxes. Some people even buy the plastic under the bed boxes to store their shoes in.So there you have it! Four great methods of shoe organization for small closets.
