Professional Shoe Cabinet Designs For Your Home 2022

Whether for work or leisure, it is a known fact that everyone has more than one pair of shoes for every occasion. Similar to storing clothes, shoes need to be placed and stored in an organized space, its ideal to invest in efficient storage for your shoes. Here are a few creative ideas you can try and a few tips to consider when creating your shoe cabinet.

Before getting started, do ensure the following preparations to set your cabinet up for success. First, think about how many shoes you own now and how many you will most likely own in the future. This will help in determining how wide or how tall your shoe cabinet is going to be. Once you have that in mind, check the area where you intend to put your shoe cabinet. Determine the measurements and see if they will work well with your intended shoe cabinet size

1. Make use of corners and available spaces

Some houses or units, if you notice, will often have small corners or niches that are the result of the foundation posts that support the entire building. While some opt to leave it as is, others would cover or patch it up in order to make it look seamless. Instead of covering it up or leaving it as is, why not make it into a full height shoe cabinet?

More often, the depth of the empty corners would range from 15cm to 35cm, which corresponds to the depth of most columns. This is more than enough to have a unique built-in hdb shoe cabinet design. You can create varying shelf heights to suit the shoes you have like boots, sandals and sneakers.

2. Full Stand-alone shoe cabinet

Given that your home has the space, you may want to opt for a stand-alone shoe cabinet. There are a wide range of shoes cabinets designed to suit any styles and needs.

You can have the usual shoe cabinets that have equally spaced shelves or compartments.

You can also go for cabinets where the compartments open out like a fan with slanted spaces for maximum capacity. You can try using cabinets with drawers for your shoes and socks. You can have long drawers for boots and short ones for sandals.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to choosing the perfect shoe cabinets’ designs to suit your tastes and needs. You can also have these stand-alone shoe cabinets customized to suit your preferred height, color, material and even function.

3. Dual purpose shoe cabinets

The trend for most furniture pieces, especially for hdb houses and condos, is having more than one function. The same can be said for shoe cabinets. A classic take would be having a hallway bench that has shelves underneath the seat for shoes. This is very useful, especially if you are rushing out. Having a bench by the hallway provides you with a place to sit on while you put on your shoes. You can elevate this classic style by having your shoe cabinet attached to a bench. Make sure to have a firm, yet comfortable seat cushion on your bench.

4. Space-saving shoe cabinets for smaller homes

This is the part where you can be a little creative in your approach to creating the most unique look. If your hdb house has a space for a walk in closet, why not incorporate a built in shoe cabinet design wardrobe feature. You can place small cubicles at the base of the cabinet with compartments for every shoe. To make it look even more aesthetically pleasing, you can cover the shoe cabinet with a decorative door panel or frame. You can also make shoes cabinets in wall pockets and cover them with unique wall art or a sliding wall panel.
