If you’re like many, you have more shoes than you know what to do with. Maybe they’re cluttering up the closet floor or sitting in a pile in the corner of the room. What’s needed here is some organization. This can be easy and inexpensive to accomplish.
Like always, doing a little online surfing can turn up some valuable information. The best sales sites are the ones that give access to customer comments and the more user reviews the better. It’s interesting to read how different products perform in real life use. Some of these sites even categorize their user comments according to how many stars have been awarded by each particular rater. These are especially useful to get a good cross section of opinion.
Searching the keywords ‘over the door shoe rack’ returned more than fifty thousand hits so I guess there’s no shortage of these devices available. The configuration of this type of organizer calls for it to be attached to a door by using hooks that slide over the door and then fit into grommets located on the top edge of the hanging shoe compartments. This is a good option for those lacking a great deal of closet area.
When looking at this type of shoe storage rack a few things should be considered. The hanging bag should be shorter and narrower than the door on which it will be used so measurements should be taken beforehand. If it’s too long or too wide is will make operating the door difficult or impossible.
Pocket size is another factor to consider. The pockets should be large enough to easily accommodate a pair of normal women’s shoes in one single compartment. For men’s shoes, which are typically larger in size, two pockets may be required to store a single pair. This is common.
A stackable shoe rack is another storage option but requires additional floor space for use (although not too much). The stackable feature of these racks allows you to go vertical, adding one rack atop another. This is an especially practical configuration for use in entryways or near exit doors. These are areas where shoes frequently accumulate and a stackable rack can go a long way towards organizing what might otherwise just be a mess.
Shoe racks of the type discussed are not expensive to buy and can be found easily on various websites. For those who value organization they are a must-have. There are other options, but these two choices are both very popular with users.
