If your garage acts more like a mud room, then you likely have an excess of shoes that pile up at your door. If that’s the case for you, the team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Charlotte, NC suggests these shoe storage ideas for the garage.
Here are a few ideas you can try:
1. Hang a Shoe Organizer on the Door
A simple solution is to hang a shoe organizer on the door. You can buy ones that have a mesh netting or plastic holders for the shoes. All you will need to do is hang the organizer from the door on whichever side you prefer.
This is a great solution for smaller shoe sizes. However, adult-sized shoes that are 9+ may not fit well into the slots. Even if you put one shoe per slot, you may have a hard time getting the width of the shoe to fit.
2. Attach Racks to the Wall
Racks are a great solution for larger shoes. You can also keep the pairs together and not separate into different slots. The great thing about this solutions is that you can hang as many shelves as you need to fit all of the shoes from your family. You should consider placing the shelves on the wall from the ground up so you can add more as you need to.
3. Create a PVC Pipe Storage System
If you are the crafty type, you can build a PVC pipe storage system of your own. You will need to consider the size of the shoes you plan to store when selecting the size of the PVC pipe. This is a good option for smaller sized shoes, but may be hard to fit larger sizes.
After you have cut all of the pipes long enough to fit the largest size shoe you need to store, you can use liquid nails to glue the pipes together. Start with a row at the bottom of at least 3-4 pipes. Place another row on top of the pipes of 2-3. Then add one last pipe to the very top.
4. Place a Storage Bench by The Door
There are a variety of storage benches you can place by your the door in your garage. The great thing about storage benches is that there is a seat for you to sit on to put on your shoes. This is ideal if your kids put on skates while they are in the garage.
Some storage benches have coat racks that are part of the unit. If you don’t have a coat closet, this can be a great option to organize your home even more. You could also use those hooks for other purposes like book bags or umbrellas.
