Shoe Storage Ideas

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Tame those messy piles of shoes. These DIY shoe benches, racks, shelves and other shoe organizer ideas are easy to build and stylish enough to use all around your house.

Entryway with umbrellas in a stand and a shoe storage bench that also holds a purse, hat and potted plant.

Angled Shoe Rack

Bedroom with dress hanging beside dresser, and a shoe rack on the floor with several pairs of shoes.

This angled shoe rack is so easy to make. Paint wooden dowels the color you like, then connect them using copper fittings—the dowels slide right in, and epoxy keeps them fastened tight. Make one for any room. Here, it’s stylish enough for the bedroom—the paint color on the rack (HGTV Home™ by Sherwin Williams Sonoran Teal, #HGSW2321) is a nice accent to the wall (Romance, #HGSW2062).

Good to Know: Make this beginner project any width you want. Just cut the shoe-support dowels longer or shorter than the 29 inches shown here.

$6 Shoe Shelf

wall-mounted shoe rack

No cutting needed for these simple inexpensive shoe shelves. Glue three pine craft boards together and attach to a wall using screws or drywall anchors. Shoe toes fit easily and stay put in the slot between the boards. Make them 2, 3 or 4 feet long and paint them to coordinate with your room. Or mount a few on a closet wall, in an entryway or even in the garage.

Versatile Bench

Back entry with teal door, umbrella stand and bench with shoes.

A handsome shoe bench made from three boards lets you stow boots and shoes; it’s also a handy spot to sit while you’re putting them on. Straight cuts make the project easy. This version has a warm gray stain (Olympic Cinder) on the leg sections for a shot of style. Set it in an entryway or hallway, or at the foot of a bed. At less than 12 inches deep, it takes up little floor space.
