If you’ve ever had a problem organizing all your different shoes, then you should seriously consider getting a wooden shoe rack. There are literally hundreds of different styles available, and the prices rarely exceed $100. Some of the racks even double as benches or are neatly built into the bottom of cabinets, making it easy to fit them into your bedroom or closet. Ultimately, the hardest part will be choosing a style that you like the best, and that you don’t mind putting your shoes in.
Obviously you’re interested in the wooden types, and mahogany is generally the most popular option. It’s popular because it’s an extremely durable wood and it’s incredibly elegant. The problem though, is the fact that it’s also usually the most expensive. Even with shoe racks, which are relatively low priced, it is on the higher end towards $100. If you aren’t willing to spend that much for an organizer, then you should go with a cherry or oak wood. You can even get one with a walnut finish, which will mimic the look and feel of mahogany. More important than the material is whether or not you actually like the style.
The main thing that you’ll need to decide on for a wooden shoe rack is how many tiers you want it to be. If you want there to be two tiers, then you can usually fit about seven to twelve pairs. If you want a lot of storage space, then you should go with a four tier option. The four tier types can often hold close to thirty different pairs of shoes, something that is especially nice for those with a smaller amount of coffee space.
Many people are not interested in the wooden shoe racks that sit on the floor unless they’re thinking about placing them in a mudroom. If that is the case with you, then you can always look into the wall mount types or the hanging racks that you can drape over your door. They are equally as effective as the types that sit on the ground, though they take up less floor space.
