Once you accumulate more than a few pairs of shoes, keeping them neat, organized and all in one place becomes a challenge. It’s even more difficult if you have a small closet or bedroom.
A tall, narrow shoe rack can easily end the hassle of sorting through a mess on the floor or juggling shoeboxes, just to find the right pair. And the rack’s narrow width allows it to fit into almost any closet or corner for easy access.
You could actually use a narrow bookcase to hold your shoes, and that’s basically the design used for the simplest tall, narrow shoe racks. They are open-faced and are normally constructed from materials like laminated particleboard or MDF (with low prices to match), with five or six adjustable shelves able to hold several pairs of shoes apiece. These can be found in white or any number of wood-grained finishes, and may have a thin cardboard or MDF sheet as backing.
The next step up on the quality ladder takes us to a fairly large selection of tall, narrow shoe cabinets. Some are built in a manner similar to the shoe racks we’ve just discussed, but with standard cabinet doors that open and close. The doors keep dust and dirt off the shoes, and provides the room with a cleaner, neater appearance than “shoes sitting in a bookcase.” Other models are built more like file cabinets, with four or five drawers each pulling out to reveal five pairs of shoes. Again, these tall, narrow shoe racks are likely to be made of manufactured wood.
Finally, there are options with more style. For instance, you can find a contemporary narrow shoe cabinet with doors designed to make the unit look like a wine cabinet, or a rack with doors that has an elegant deep brown patterned finish which would look at home in either a modern or mid-century modern décor. Sadly, even these choices are made from manufactured wood; it’s nearly impossible to find a tall, narrow shoe rack made from solid wood – unless you have one made for you.
The height of these shoe racks and cabinets generally ranges from four to six feet, but none is wider than 30”, with many coming in at just 24” wide.
