As Professional Organizers, we are constantly faced with life’s hardest questions (sarcasm). In all seriousness, NEAT pays close attention to even the smallest of details in our clients’ home so that they can enjoy the ‘perks’ of an organized life. We, at NEAT, thought that it would be fun to share some of these questions with you. We will also give you our opinion to the dilemmas we are faced with while organizing. Every Wednesday, we will have a post entitled, “We’re Wondering Wednesday..” Please feel free to share your opinion with us xo NEAT
We’re Wondering about……..
SHOES!!!! Should they face out…
We have run into this question while organizing MANY times. In pictures, I think we can all agree that shoes facing out look AMAZING!!!! Shoes can be so photogenic can’t they?? After testing both ways, here are some things that NEAT has learned that we wanted to share with you:
1. Nothing looks better faced out than a cute pair of heels or a sleek pair of dress shoes BUT what about the running shoes? We can tell you that they simply DO NOT work.
2. Shoes that are facing in are easier to pull out when you need them however shoes facing out are easy to find when you are looking for a specific pair.
NEAT’s Conclusion: We feel that unless you have the space for adjustable, wooden shelves in your walk-in closet, keep your shoes faced in. Nothing looks worse than attempting the luxury look of a walk-in in the simplicity of a reach-in. If you do have the space, place your prettiest shoes on those shelves and take your running and casual shoes and put them faced in on a separate shelving unit in the closet. Not everyone can have the *dream* closet but you can make the closet you do have pretty unbelievable.
Stay tuned for some tips and photos of NEAT’s work in a reach-in.
