Most of us own more than four or five pairs of shoes and that’s where shoe racks come in. When you consider that your home has more than one person living in it, you may end up with a shoe problem without even knowing it. Keeping your shoes neatly organized is very important.
The last thing you want is to come home after a very long day only to find shoes littering the entire floor. It’s not a pretty sight but don’t worry, you can take care of it with shoe racks. Shoe racks are innovative furniture pieces designed to provide storage and organization for your shoes.
They also bring aesthetic value to your interior space. We are going to show you how to choose the best shoe racks.
What size shoe rack is good for your space?
Size is perhaps one of the most important considerations to make when deciding on furniture. This is because we don’t have unlimited space. If you are going to buy any additional piece of furniture, then there has to be enough room in the house to accommodate it.
Luckily for you, shoe racks come in many different sizes. Even if you have a small bedroom or a compact apartment, you can find an equally small and highly functional shoe rack to take care of your needs.
But how do you get the measurements right? Follow these simple steps:
Determine where the rack will be placed. Normally, shoe racks are placed along the wall. It could be in the hallway or even the bedroom.
Measure the size of the wall where the rack will sit along. Once you have the measurements, determine the size of the rack that fits.
Keep in mind that shoe racks are accent furniture pieces. They are not meant to measure up to the entire length of the walls. Ideally, you want the rack to be at most a third of the entire wall length.
As far as the depth of your shoe rack is concerned, it should correspond to the size of your shoes. As a general rule, a depth of 13"" (33 cm) will work for most people, unless the're a need to store shoes in boxes.
