Our Entryway is Too Narrow for Shoes, Do You Have a Similar Problem?

+5
Answered
To keep our apartment's entryway neat, we don't leave our shoes next to the door. And by "we" I mean, I usually discard my shoes as I'm halfway through the door. Only to find them the next morning on the shoe shelf in our room.  It works great for our narrow, apartment entryway. What do you do to make your space work?

    I use a small plastic serving tray from the dollar store for my shoes and boots in the winter - that might work in your space.

    I use a hanging fabric shoe holder in the front closet for all my smaller pairs of shoes [not best for thick soled runners, though]. I tuck the runners under a wooden dresser stand in the front hall.

    instead of the floor use the wall. saw a cute idea where you can hang a series of door knob or hooks on the wall. just hand your shoes there. Perhaps put some pretty paper behind it in case it's a dirty spot.

    We use an old slated end of a crib and propped up against the wall. The horizontal slats are great for holding shoes in an area lacking in space.

    I bought a shoe rack and put a board on top. only 10 in by 3 ft. Placed it alongside the sofa. Works as an end table and shoe storage.

    If you or your hubby are handy, cut out a section of the wall between studs and cross ties. In the back attach hooks to hold shoes. They'll be up out of the way of traffic and handy to put on and take off whenever you're ready. Kids love this method, too, since they don't get yelled at for leaving their shoes everywhere except where they belong. Easy peasy!

    faced with a similer problem we cut a hole in the dry wall and recessed a site built shoe stand between the studs. it ened up only taking a few inches of hall space. the coat rack above made it perfect.
