6 Game-Changing Reasons to Get a Shoe Cabinet with Doors

Let us guess: you're still relying on bulky boxes or leaving your shoes at the bottom of your wardrobe. Or perhaps you only have a small shoe rack next to your front door but your other pairs are scattered around the house and finding them feels like a scavenger's hunt?

Then we think you'll be relieved to know that a shoe cabinet with doors can revolutionize your morning and evening routine while keeping your room immaculately tidy.

An ab-shoe-lute dream, right?

But let us tell you about it in more detail so that you can actually see how it would make your life easier and your room tidier.

Here are the main reasons why we recommend choosing a shoe cabinet with doors.

You can say bye to all that clutter

Do you sometimes happen to find a mismatched high heel underneath your bed? Always end up leaving your shoes on the floor because you have nowhere to put them? A shoe cabinet with doors will change that!

  • All your shoes will finally be in one place. Because you've got an allocated cubbyhole or enough room on a shelf for each and every single one of them, it'll be much easier to keep them tidy;

  • Consequently, a shoe storage cabinet will translate into much more room in your wardrobe. You'll no longer need to leave your shoe boxes on the bottom shelves, where they never fail to get in the way of your dresses.

It'll be much quicker to get ready in the morning or before going out in the evening

Let us take some guilt off your chest: it's not your fault that you always end up wearing the same shoes and neglecting all your other pairs.

If they're scattered all over your house, it's totally normal to go with the ones that you can see straight away, especially if you're in a rush!

  • When you invest in a shoe cabinet with doors, however, all you need to do is open it and… voilà! You'll always get a beautiful, tidy overview of every single pair that you own;

  • It'll be a breeze to figure out what works well with the outfit you're wearing once you no longer need to try and remember what you own or run around the house to find that missing pair.

Shoe cabinets with doors create the perfect environment for them

There's a reason why we're recommending shoe cabinets with doors rather than just any type of shoe cabinet!

  • To keep your shoes dry and safe, you must store them in a dark and temperature-controlled environment that ensures ventilation;

  • This is to protect them from direct sunlight (particularly detrimental to leather and the most delicate shoes), moisture and drastic temperature changes;

  • Shoe cabinets with doors - and especially those featuring louvered designs or mesh - allow an element of ventilation while keeping the temperature stable and the sunlight away.

They look just like traditional pieces of furniture

Unlike tacky plastic boxes and other questionable storage solutions, shoe cabinets with doors don't look painfully out of place.

On the contrary, their appearance and feel are just like that of more traditional pieces of furniture and can even complement your room's décor.

You simply need to look for a shoe cabinet with doors in a similar wood tone and design style as the other elements!

Shoe storage cabinets can work in different rooms

The ace up the sleeve of shoe cabinets with doors is that they are such versatile pieces of furniture!

  • They can work in several rooms, such as your hallway, bedroom and walk-in closet;

  • It all depends on how much spare space you've got in each of them and where it would be more practical for you when you're getting ready.

They can help you optimize the space in your room

Luckily, shoe cabinets with doors come in all sorts of sizes and designs, so you can easily find one that fits that empty spot like a puzzle:

  • For example, if you've got quite a few shelves on the wall but a fairly empty area at the bottom, you can look for a horizontal shoe storage cabinet that only relies on two layers;

  • On the contrary, if you haven't got a lot of floor space left but you do have an awkward corner where nothing else seems to fit, just look for a tall but slim cabinet with multiple shelves.

Basically, shoe cabinets with doors are the safest and most practical place to store your pairs. Luckily, they also happen to be incredibly stylish!
