Close-Up: The Shoe Vault

Shoes seem to take hold of us and keep us hostage in our own home. We like to take our shoes off at the door and get them out of sight as soon as possible. Songhun and Jae have a great solution.

The deep drawers give instant access to even out of season footwear, and the door that makes the storage an instant secret is the best part. Even if you can't build-in custom shelving in your entryway, you might be able to fit in a kitchen cabinet and outfit it with roll-out shelves meant for pots and pans. Install more drawers than would ordinarily come with the cabinet and you will never trip over another shoe again.
