Get your shoes organised with a shoe rack
A well-organised shoe rack or cabinet is the pride of any shoe enthusiast, with a shoe collection that keeps growing. With a beautiful shoe rack from vidaXL, you can keep all your shoes neatly organised. Clutter will soon be a thing of the past, and your shoes will be neatly stored side by side. See our full selection of affordable shoe racks right below.
Sturdy materials for your shoe rack
A shoe rack bears more weight than you would think, so it is important to choose a shoe cabinet that not only looks great but is made of sturdy materials. Here at vidaXL, we have several wooden shoe racks on offer. Our shoe cabinets are very stylish yet affordable, and we are sure a shoe rack from us will look absolutely fabulous in both your hallway and your bedroom. An alternative option is a fabric shoe rack. This has the advantage of being lightweight and easy to move.
Wood is by far the most common option when it comes to shoe racks. Wood has the advantage of being versatile, and it easily blends into almost any type of décor. That is why so many people swear by wood when it comes to shoe racks. However, wood has a downside in that it can be harder to maintain.
If you want a shoe rack that is easy to clean and maintain, you may wish to opt for metal or plastic. Metal is also excellent when it comes to durability, and they usually have a minimalistic, clean design that suits any modern home. Plastic is another option, although it is much less popular than wood and metal.
What all shoe racks and cabinets have in common is that they protect shoes from dust, moisture and discolouration. By handling and storing your shoes correctly, you will enjoy them a lot longer.
Choose a shoe rack with enough space
This may seem like a silly thing to mention, but when choosing a shoe cabinet, it is important to consider if this new piece of furniture has enough space. You may have twelve pairs of shoes now, and a cabinet which holds this many pairs of shoes may seem like the right choice. But what happens if you are like us and you are sure to buy more and more shoes in the future? You’d be wise to choose a shoe organiser with enough storage compartments so that you will always have room for your new treasures.
Size probably is the most important thing to consider when choosing your new shoe rack or cabinet. Your home doesn’t have unlimited space, so you need to make sure your home actually has enough room to accommodate your new piece of furniture while also having enough space to hold all your shoes. Luckily, at vidaXL, we have shoe racks in a myriad of different sizes. Even if you live in a small bedroom or a tiny flat, you will find a shoe rack that can take care of your needs here.
How to get the measurements right
Naturally, it is important that you get the measurements right. With these simple tips and tricks, you will be able to measure the space for your shoe rack in no time
First of all, you need to determine where you want the rack to be placed. Typically, a shoe rack is placed along a wall in the hallway or bedroom, but it doesn’t have to be placed against a wall.
You then need to measure the size of the wall where the rack will be placed. Once you have the measurements of the wall, you can determine the size of the rack that fits.
It is important to keep in mind that shoe racks are not meant to take up the entire length of a wall, as they are accent furniture pieces. As a rule of thumb, you probably don’t want your rack to take up more than a third of the entire wall.
Lastly, you need to consider the depth of your shoe rack. First, the depth has to correspond to the size of your shoes. Generally speaking, a depth of about 33 centimetres works for most people unless, of course, you prefer storing your shoes in boxes, in which case you will need more space.
Showcase your shoe collection with shoe racks
We understand that you probably don’t want to clutter your hallway with a large shoe rack. However, you definitely want a shoe rack that is big enough to accommodate all your shoes. So, as mentioned above, figure out how many shoes you have and how much space you need for them. But remember that your shoe rack does not have to be just for storage. Your shoe rack can also be used as a display of your shoe collection. If you are a hardcore shoe lover, you probably want to showcase your precious collection of shoes.
Ideally, you probably want to place your shoes at least five centimetres apart. This ensures that each pair of shoes can be showcased beautifully. Because why would you hide your amazing collection of sneakers, boots or high heels? At vidaXL, we believe you should display your shoes with pride. They deserve a place in the spotlight. Also, with a shoe rack, you can always pick up a pair of shoes easily and quickly, which is great when you are running late and just need to get out the door.
We also have a little pro tip to share with you: If you have a big collection of shoes, one shoe rack in your hallway might not be quite enough. So, why not get an extra shoe rack for your wardrobe as well? This will help you keep all your shoes nicely organised while making sure you are using your space most efficiently. If you are still in need of more space, some of our shoe rack models can be stacked on top of each other, so if you have the wall space for it, this is a great option as well.
Which shoe rack design should you choose?
We have already talked about it a bit, but it matters how your shoe rack looks. It is not all about the size. You also want it to look beautiful in your home. You have to look at it every day, after all, and every guest will see it when they enter your home. Therefore, your shoe rack should definitely look the part. So, how do you choose the right shoe rack? First and foremost, the design of your shoe rack will depend on where you are planning on placing it. Let’s take a further look at it:
If you are planning on placing your shoe rack in your hallway, perhaps consider a shoe rack made from wood. Wood almost always looks amazing, and it looks gorgeous against plain walls.
If, on the other hand, you are buying a shoe rack for your bedroom, you probably want your shoe rack to match the rest of your bedroom furniture. Oftentimes walnut tends to look incredible in the bedroom.
If you are planning on hiding your shoe rack, you may wish to opt for a sleek shoe rack made of metal.
Overall, you need to consider where you are going to place your shoe rack and what the existing décor is like in the room. This ensures that you pick a shoe rack that will look stunning in your home.
Keep things organised with a shoe rack
If you are a fan of keeping things tidy, neat and organised, a shoe rack is exactly what you need. With a shoe rack, you can easily tuck away shoes, clothes and accessories behind closed doors. You can even store magazines, glass bottles, tin cans and other things that are on their way to being recycled. Moreover, a shoe rack is space-efficient. You can also get shoe racks with storage space on top. This is perfect for placing keys, phones, a mirror, a lamp or a bouquet of flowers. This will definitely help you and everyone else feel welcome as soon as they step into the home.
With a shoe rack, you can wave goodbye to clutter and shoes that are scattered around the corner and nooks of your home. A shoe rack will help you line up all your shoes, making them look organised and well-placed, and gone are the days when you would risk tripping over shoes on your way out the door in the morning. At vidaXL, we believe that shoe racks are a real must-have in every home, whether you live in a big family house or a tiny flat in the city.
