When we live in a small space it is difficult to store our belongings and keep them organized. But, living in a small house or apartment should not be an obstacle to adapt the place and make it comfortable and practical.

One of the most complicated aspects for many is to know where to organize our shoes, since many times they end up under the bed and this is not the most appropriate.

So we can take advantage of certain tricks and solutions such as buying a shoe rack to make our house more orderly according to our needs.

Here we have the best tips for you to organize your shoes easily in a small space.

Do a general cleaning

Before you buy shoe rack online and start organizing your shoes, the first thing you should do is to make an inventory of everything you have and get rid of those you don't use.

Find all the shoes you have at home and put them all in one place. Then, check which ones you wear regularly and which ones you no longer want to wear because they are broken, out of season or you don't like them anymore. You can donate the ones that are in bad condition and throw away the ones that are no longer useful.

Once you have an idea of how many shoes you have, it's time to look for shoe rack furniture to help you organize them in a small space.

Where to organize your shoes in a small space?

Buying a wooden shoe cabinet is the ideal solution to organize everything, but first you must determine the best place to place it.

Behind the door

If you live in a small space, a shoe cabinet behind the door is the best option to keep everything tidy and easily accessible. Some shoe racks come with brackets and beams that you can easily install to keep all your shoes in one place.

In the closet

The closet is the most obvious place to store your shoes, but sometimes it may not be so simple, so if we don't know how to organize them it can end up looking even messier.

In this sense, a solid wood shoe rack can be a good alternative. There are several options from which you can choose and that do not take up much space. For example, there are some shoe racks that are foldable and others are in the form of drawers, so they are very practical.

Under the bed

You can store your shoes under the bed, but first you must formalize this space with a shoe cabinet.

The truth is that you can adapt accessories or buy boxes or organizers to make this space the ideal storage space and make it impeccable and effective for all your shoes.

With these shoe racks you can protect them from dust and they will make the space look tidier.

In the foyer

A good option to organize your shoes are the shoe racks for entrances. No matter if your entrance is small or, even if it is a hallway, you can buy a wooden shoe rack bench to leave your shoes when you enter or to organize the ones you use most often.
