How does one build a shoe cabinet? A friend of mine was insistent that I build one. So I did. Guess what? The cabinet is great and my shoes are more secure now than ever before. I would like to share my experience with you.
Tip One: What kind of shoe cabinet do you need? There are several options. Built-in shoe closets are great. How do you get them? They are built into a cabinet with a lid that has a shoe storage space.
Tip Two: In building your closet space, decide where you want your shoe cabinet positioned in your closet. This will help you decide on how many storage spaces you need to provide. This also affects the number and size of the boxes or bins you will need. For example, if you have plenty of open space in your bedroom you may want to consider using shoe storage boxes or organizers that have multiple drawers and cabinets.
Tip Three: Next, you will need a plan of action for installing your shoe cabinet. Your first option is to use straight wood planks as the base units. You can then build up the sides and front. You may also want to install hooks along your hallway. You can then hang the units from these hooks once completed.
Tip Four: In this next tip we are going to talk about the final step – Hanging Tilt-Out Doors. This is my personal favorite. I really love these sliding doors. They are perfect for getting shoes out of the bottom of your dresser while also making a great way to display some of your decor. Hanging tilt-out doors is great because they can be opened fully and shut behind you. This can allow you to store a variety of different sized shoes in one small area.
As you can see, there are many ways you can decorate your closet with storage cabinets. It is up to you to choose the best storage solution for your closet. If you do not have the space for a full closet you can install a shoe cabinet in your hallway or entryway. This will give you an area to store a variety of shoes while still keeping your hallway neat and tidy. Another option you can choose is to purchase wall cabinets. These are great for storing all of your small items, but they take up a big portion of the wall space and may not be practical if you do not have a large hallway or entryway.
