Appreciate your space : small space living #8

Happy Wednesday! Today is our weekly post inspired by tiny New York City apartments, where small space living is pretty much a must. New Yorkers have to get creative with decorating, storing and organizing their stuff in order to keep their sanity and their rent at a tolerable level. In these weekly post’s I highlight some inspiring spaces hopefully encouraging us all to appreciate our own spaces a little more.  Today’s post is dedicated to….shoe storage! If you area self proclaimed shoe hoarder or maybe just dream of being one (like me), these 5 posts feature different small spaces where shoe storage has been creatively tackled and the space looks great and organized!

1. This wall featuring the floor to ceiling shelves is so well organized. From the bins, to all the shoes and even a tiny spot for a little tv, this persons priorities are obviously on fashion and they don’t let clutter get in the way of their desire for shoes, shoes and more shoes!

2. What a creative way to organize your shoes!! I saw a few posts about this on Pinterest. Some are for a DIY version of this where you take a shoe rack like this one and cut it up and staple it to your box spring. Once the bed skirt covers it, you would even know its there. Great idea!

3. Above the door shelving is a great way to store some of your “out of season” items like boots or warmer shoes in the summer when you don’t need them. They are still accessible but out of the way.

4. This DIY crown molding solution is a great way to hang your heels in the closet and off the floor! More floor space is always a good thing!

5. Add an extra rod in your closet and hang all your shoes! Pretty smart idea!
