How to organize a small closet by Inspired Closets
Inspired Closets Adjustable Shoe Organizer is designed to fit needs for all your shoes

Custom shoe organization for your closest organizer

No matter how big or small your home is, shoes present an organizational challenge. Most shoe racks, shoe shelves, and closet shoe organizers take a one-size-fits-all approach which can lead to disorganization and frustration. So we work with clients to relieve that frustration by creating closet shoe organization solutions to keep each pair organized.

How to organize shoes in a custom closet

Creating effective shoe storage is a three-step process. First, we need to know how many pairs of shoes you own and how many pairs you might want to make room for in the future.  When we come to your home, we will count every pair present and make sure to ask you about shoes you store elsewhere that you want to move to your custom closet. Next, creating a dedicated space for your closet shoe rack or shoe shelves within your custom closet helps you maintain shoe organization. To determine how much space is needed, your designer will calculate the total number of pairs to determine exactly how much space is needed to accommodate all the shoes you own. You can learn more about how to design a custom closet here. Finally, because seasons and life are full of change, you need to make sure that your shoe storage is adjustable making it easy to accommodate changes in your shoe preferences and seasons. At Inspired Closets, all of our closet features and closet shoe organizers are adjustable giving you the functionality you need in any solution you choose.

Proper shoe storage save time

Innovative, adjustable shoe organizer for closets

Designed to keep shoe organization simple, the Inspired Closets Shoe Shrine® takes custom shoe organizer ideas to an entirely new level. Shoes come in all shapes and sizes, which means that if you use standard shoe racks, shoe shelves, and closet shoe organizers, you may encounter shoes that are too tall for the fixed space between each shelf. Likewise, you may have a thin pair of shoes, like flip flops or flats, stored on a shelf that is clearly tall enough for more than one pair. The Inspired Closets Shoe Shrine® solves that problem by maximizing the use of your space in the process. Its unique design creates a dedicated, fully adjustable shelf for every pair – so flats can be stored on shelves positioned close together while boots can sit on shelves positioned farther apart. The Shoe Shrine® includes slim, adjustable shelves that enable you to move each shelf to fit the height of each pair of shoes. From flip flops to boots, each pair of shoes uses only the amount of space needed to store each pair. These exclusive shelves come in a wide array of finishes and colors, letting you customize your shoe organizer with just the right amount of style.

Depending on the shoes you own, your Inspired Closets designer may recommend other shoe organizer ideas to best meet your needs.

Traditional Shelf ASID Award-Winning Product

The first type of shoe shelf is a traditional shelf that looks and functions like any other shelf in your closet. These shelves are typically 18 to 24” wide but can be custom manufactured to nearly any width.

Slanted shoe shelf for women's shoes

Designed to store your shoes on an angle, it includes an accessory on the front called a shoe fence that keeps your shoes from sliding forward. Many clients like how slanted shoe shelves display their shoes while not in use.

SHOE SHRINE ® ASID Award-Winning Product

This adjustable shoe organizer can handle any pair in any size. Thanks to slims shelves, you can add or remove a shelf at any time to change the configuration to match the height of each pair, making this solution flexible and organized all in one.

For both #2 and #3, the number of shoes on each shelf varies depending on the width of the section. As a general rule, we plan for 3 pairs of shoes per shelf and then customize the width and the design based on your needs.

How do I know my shoes will stay organized in my custom closet?

Getting and staying organized is easier when the shoe organization solution is designed for your unique needs and the number and style of shoes you own. That’s why all of our shoe organizer ideas begin with adjustability. We know that the number of pairs and types of shoes you own will change over time and we want your custom closet to be able to do the same, so we work together to create a space that solves the problems that basic closet solutions cant. We’ll take the time to get to know you, to understand your wants and needs as well as your interior design style, and we’ll use that information as we work through your design. We’ll make recommendations for the product color and style and we’ll consider the best features to support the way you live. And then together we’ll review your design in our proprietary software, offering a 3D rendering that gives you a very clear understanding of exactly what your custom closet will look like once it’s installed.
