In a busy household, shoes seem to collect in the most inconvenient of places. Add to that the fact that nobody just has one pair of shoes and suddenly, you have a real problem on your hands. Unless, of course, you can find some shoe storage solutions that will suit your home! 

Interior designers know that the key to a beautiful home is staying on top of the clutter, which is why we looked at the cabinets and shelving options that they most commonly put in place for clients with a sizeable shoe collection—and we think we've found some real winners! Say goodbye to trip-hazard hallways and hello to shoe heaven!

1. Simple glass shelves, on the wall, will mean you'll always be able to find your favourite shoes, without having to hunt around.

2. Stealthy cabinets in your hallway will look great and hide away all your shoes from guests!

3. Drawers under your bed are the perfect spot for stowing away countless pairs of shoes, just make sure they're clean when you put them in!

4. If you like heritage furniture, how about a matching pair of side tables for a hallway, with integrated shelving for shoes? Nobody would ever guess!

5. Simple metal racks are a lovely way to keep the shoes you wear the most, close to the front door!

6. Wicker baskets are a great way to hide shoes, while not negating on style! Add some fresh flowers and the smell will be nice as well!

7. The space under your stairs is ripe for some handy shoe storage! Just make sure everyone helps keep it tidy!
