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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In this spacious and organized walk-in closet, pullout shoe shelves allow you to see shoes at the back of the shelf while also taking advantage of the closet's depth so you can store two to three rows of shoes together. Similarly, pullout tie trays allow you to see all of the ties in one glance because they are organized into separate compartments.
