2017 seems to be a year of individual needs in terms of design. The bathrooms are spacious, the apartments are more spacious, more and more houses have balconies or even rooftop terraces. Overall, the trend is towards more comfort and a better quality of life.
Humans are becoming more rational and environmentally conscious. Consumption is limited and the quest for sustainability conquers the world.
It sounds good, but even if you live sustainably and want to be seen as a good role model, you need clean clothes every day and a place to keep them.
Trend 2017- Configuration according to individual needs
In one of the previous articles, we have been intensively dealing with the topic of the "cloakroom" and how to best configure it. Today, we are smart and collect enough examples and ideas on how to build a shoe rack.
Many of us may not be able to get along with a shoe rack, but have a clear idea of how to finally get the imagined view of all his shoes are precious enough.
Shoe shelves to build oneself
But before looking for innovative closet cabinets or original solutions, start by looking at what your apartment or house offers as potential space!
Shoe shelves and custom cabinets
Many old style apartments have spacious hallways and high walls, where cupboards and shelves are perfectly adapted. In new buildings, this possibility simply disappears, but other ideas, such as sliding or folding compartments under the bed or wall, are a good choice.
Depending on the size of your apartment and the number of pairs of shoes you own, you can develop your personal idea according to your needs. You can either order a shoe rack, convert an old piece of furniture or even build a chic house with your europallets for your shoes.
If you do not want one or the other and do not have manual talent, there is always a fast and effective way to take care of the many shoes.
The simplest is to screw a few strips of wood on the wall, where you can "expose" your popular shoe collection. Other possibilities are the popular and very versatile wine boxes, with which one can solve any problem of order.
Function and decoration at a time
Even if you have the best shoes in the world, they do not have to be seen everywhere. Therefore, an aesthetic and decorative solution would be welcome.
You can work on the principle of "old to new". Take the old things out of the basement and turn the old wooden ladder, seemingly useless, into a shoe rack!
Put a wooden latte on each step! The result is a shelving system that is worth the trip and is very comfortable – only for your beloved shoes!
The combined turnstiles we know at Ikea are a particularly interesting solution, especially if your house is very small.
Our recommendation: See you in town and visit a good shoe store. Here are the best examples of how to get a lot of shoes in a small space without disrupting the aesthetics.
