    16 Ideas For Organizing All Of Your Shoes

    Ain't nobody got time for shoes left out and about.

    1. Put them on display with a white floating shelf:

    To make everything look elegant, it's important to maintain a balance of colors (preferably in golden, black, gray, and earth tones) and to not group the objects too closely. Make sure to vary the sizes and textures.

    2. If you have more of a ~boho~ soul, bust out some wood crates:

    3. Hang all those heels from a ladder...

    15. If you seriously don't want your shoes to be seen, but you don't have space in your closet, hang a curtain like this:

    Place a shoe rack against a wall close to your bed and dress it up with an elegant curtain. This way, it will seem like a window or a door, and no one will have to see them.

    16. And, at the end of the day, if you are someone who loves practical things, just invest in a simple organizer that hangs behind the door.
