Looking to free your hallway of footwear clutter? We have the solution!
Our practical and modern understairs storage units maximise the wasted space beneath the stairs and offer a fantastic shoe storage solution.
Smart Storage CEO Paul Jacob originally came up with the idea for understairs storage as a result of the shoe crisis in his own home. We are all familiar with the shoe mountain that can quickly grow in any family’s home! At Smart Storage, we have made it so easy to organise all the family’s shoes. Check out our top tips for shoe storage below.
Shoe Storage Hacks & Ideas
1.Store the shoes you and your family wear most often in an easily accessible drawer. If you are storing children’s shoes in an understairs storage unit, ensure they are stored in the lower drawers so that they are easy to access.
2. Create built in shoe storage in the nooks and crannies around your home. An under stairs storage unit is a fantastic hidden storage solution! If your home does not have stairs, our storage benches also make a great hidden storage solution for any hallway, while also providing an attractive seating area.
3. Can you ever have enough baskets? We love this drawer organisation hack by styled_by_blair. They have stored their lighter summer sandals and flip flops in these little storage baskets, helping them to maximise the space available within the storage drawer. Genius!

4. Use our optional upgrade shoe rails to create a convenient shoe shelf with the drawer. Each shoe rail is fully removable, allowing you to alter the drawer for different storage purposes as your storage needs change.
5.Last but not least…only keep the shoes you wear often. If you haven’t worn them in twelve months, it is usually best to donate them if suitable, or to throw them away if worn. As Marie Kondo says…only keep the items that spark joy!
We are delighted to announce that in line with Government regulations we have reopened in Ireland and are delighted to have resumed our under stairs storage installations. As always, we will be following recommended guidelines to keep our employees and customers safe.
On another positive note we are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Houzz Service Award for 2021. This is our fifth year in a row winning the Houzz Service Award, having also been awarded in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. We are especially proud of this year’s award as the Covid-19 pandemic presented many challenges for our business over the past 12 months. We dealt with these challenges and were delighted to resume normal operations recently thanks to the support of our wonderful installers, staff and customers. Thank you!
