When it comes to a love for fashion in New York City, your shoe collection does a lot of talking! It’s no secret that the way you dress can help put a pep in your step, and it all begins with a fashionable, comfortable, and functional pair of shoes. But what’s the best way to store your ever growing collection of flats and heels in your Glenwood apartment? Here are some ideas we have in mind!

Utilize Under the Bed Storage

How many times have you shoved a pair of last season’s shoes under your bed? While this method is quick and easy, we’re all about organizing it! An idea we love when storing shoes is to designate labeled containers by seasons: spring, summer, fall, and winter. This way, you can easily rotate your pairs per Manhattan weather!

Be sure to measure the height between your floor and the bottom of your bed for an approximate size to help you choose a collapsible, fabric, or plastic shoe organizer.

A Helpful Tip: Simply throw your cloth organizer in the wash or wipe it clean with a damp cloth to collect specks of dirt!

Purchase a Shoe Cabinet

You ready that right – a shoe cabinet. Imagine having all of your high heels, flats, sandals, sneakers, and dress shoes neatly tucked away into a piece of furniture with custom hidden shelves. At less than a foot deep, it’s an awesome addition to hallways or master closets (plus, many cabinets hold up to 16 pairs of shoes). Not only will your shoes have their own space, but the designs of shoe cabinets perfectly compliment existing bedroom or entryway furniture!

Set Up Cubbies

The use of cubbies is taking over apartment organization in the Upper East Side one unit at a time! Whether you’re looking for practical methods to store your own shoes, your spouses’, or your children’s, cubbies will do just that. Here’s why we love them:

  • Keeps both shoes of a pair together
  • Every member of the family can reach their shoes
  • Provides storage space for baskets to be placed on top of the cubby unit

Over the Door Storage

It’s easy for your entire master closet at The Belmont and The Encore to become one giant shoe storage space, but it does not need to be this way! After all, the spacious closets of Glenwood apartments present ample room to properly store every slipper and sandal worn! One way to organize your closet is to hang an over-the-door shoe hanger.

Similar to under the bed storage, using the back of your closet door is another way to make the best use of unused space. You’ll be happy to hear many hangers hold up to 36 pairs!

If you have a creative mind and love the idea of displaying your designer heels as pieces of art, creating a shoe pyramid is the perfect solution. This DIY storage idea can be customized to any height, width, or number of shelves you need. All you need is  a handful of nails, a few pieces of flat wood to create the shelves, and wooden poles to create the triangular structure. Best of all, if you’re inspired on how to decorate your apartment the Glenwood way, you can add a pop of color to your room with your shoe pyramid!
