The sight of shoes in every size and shape lying around scattered near the entrance can make a terrible impression on guests. Which is why; it is important to organise them in a neat and trendy manner. This way, not only will your entryway or hallway look tidy and appealing, but it will become easy to find your favourite pair on busy mornings too. Here, we bring you 9 smart and unique storage solutions which will fight your shoe clutter effectively and also look great!

1. Multi-functional unit

This one is particularly useful for large families, where different kinds of organisational space are required in the entryway. This neat and sleek wooden unit can work very well for such situations, with a long and closed cabinet near the floor for housing shoes. The open shelf above can store caps, umbrellas, bags and such, while you can hang your coats and jackets on the hangers.

2. Vibrant storage

Crafted by the interior architects at Lucile Roybier in Paris, this storage unit is a fun and colourful combination of vertical and horizontal cabinets. Held together by sleek steel frames, they can add pizzazz to any hallway with their bright blue and purple tones.

3. Wicker and wood

Looking for something more quaint or cosy to store shoes? Then this simple white wooden cubby with four neat compartments can be ideal for you. Note how charming wicker baskets of precise measurements have been fitted inside the shelves to keep the shoes out of sight. Chic name tags with each box conveniently indicate which shoes belong to which family member.

4. Under the stairs

Why allow the dead space under your staircase go to waste? Get sliding drawers with in-built shelves constructed, and organise your shoes uniquely. The drawers slide in to seamlessly merge with the staircase, so that guests don’t have an inkling of where all your shoes go!

5. Minimalistic solution

This extremely sleek organiser for shoes, coats, hats and belts is perfect for minimalistic homes or those which flaunt an industrial style decor scheme. It hardly takes up any floor space and is best suited for small families of couples.

6. Smooth elegance

If simplicity and privacy is your motto, then a sleek, long dresser with smooth drawers is your best bet for organising footwear. This design goes very well with almost all decor styles, and conceals all your shoes in a sophisticated manner.

7. Hidden behind the mirror

A sleek and tall cabinet which helps in stacking shoes vertically can be perfect when you don’t want your floor space to go waste. Fit the shelves with slim rods as shown here, so that the shoes stay in position. And a mirrored door will not only lend a snazzy touch to your entryway, but also make it look more spacious.

8. A very vintage idea

How about putting your long forgotten vintage trunks to the best possible use now? Build shelves inside them if required and arrange all your shoes neatly. Add wheels if you want the unit to be mobile as well as charming!

9. Perfect for kiddos

These quirky Lego-shaped storage units can motivate kids to arrange their own shoes for sure. Soft pastel hues make them all the more attractive.
