This shoe closet is so big it can only be captured with a wide-angle lens. Note how the shoes are placed on sliding shelves on a rail system, much like some public libraries use for books in England. That’s where Walter James got this idea, when trying to devise a storage system for his wife Tiffany’s more than 600 pairs of shoes. Walter designed the closet with three stationary back shelves and three additional rows of double shelves on a track with wheels and a header on top to hold the shelves in place and to keep them stable. The entire closet is made of cedar.
When transforming a spare bedroom into a glamorous dressing room, designer Nicole Norris, ASID, NCIDQ, turned the double-door reach-in closet into a custom-designed shoe display alcove with 1/2" thick glass shelves. Luxurious patterned carpeting, gold shimmering wallpaper and neutral furnishings balance out the bright pink shelving. Since the room was so large, several ready-made furniture pieces were added in addition to the custom shelving.
One entire wall of actress Tiffani Thiessen's modern walk-in closet is devoted to an impressive collection of shoes. The space is neutral to allow the bright colors of clothing and accessories to pop. A center island is a handy spot to store jewelry, perfume and more.
In this large walk-in closet, shoes line shelves along one wall, while clothing, accessories and framed photos sit on open-faced shelving on the adjacent wall. The shelves and drawers help make the closet an ideally organized space.
This modern dressing room is all about organization, with a full wall of customized shoe storage that features both open and closed shelving. The all-white palette allows the colors in the footwear to pop.
Where there's a little room, often there's a way to boost storage space. For this dressing room redo, designer Courtney Blaymore created a space for double hanging as well as a shoe wall to showcase her client's many pairs of shoes. The result: no more desperate searching for that one perfect outfit.
Never dig through a tangle of necklaces again. Organize jewelry in a case with a see-through lid like this one and find what you need in an instant. Along the back wall, shoes get plenty of room on open shelves.
