Kids’ room shoe storage ideas:
In this case, there are two options; getting a shoe rack or converting a spare closet. Since space is the issue in your home, if you are opting for shoes racks, go for the on-the-door or over-the-door racks instead of the floor shoe racks which are known to take up more space. If on the other hand you have a spare closet in the kids’ room, simply retrofit the closet by adding cubbies to it.
Not only does this method save you a lot of space in the kids’ room, it also creates a sense of decency since the door of the closet can be closed after taking or putting in shoes.
