Upcycle a vintage or reclaimed storage unit

6 shoe storage solutions that'll keep your favourite footwear in check

The idea
Furniture like this Fifties unit can easily be adapted to create neat shoe storage that works particularly well in a hallway, by the back door or in a utility room. Alternatively, seek out reclaimed pieces, such as industrial-style factory furniture, shop fitting cabinets, sorting office shelving or any piece with cubby holes that are ideal for stowing individual pairs.
