DIY shoe storage from kitchen cabinets

Materials: Faktum, Trofast

After searching for a neat shoe rack for months we finally decided that IKEA is not able to provide what we want.

Since our whole flat looks like a IKEA showroom and we are convinced with the cost-benefit ratio we thought of giving the horizontal Faktum cabinets a try. And we set out to DIY our shoe cabinet to fit our compact entryway. It should also double up as a coat rack and have space for gloves and other accessories.

(The Metod system has replaced the old Faktum kitchen range. The Metod also offers horizontal cabinets that can be easily applied to this hack.)

Not only these three cabinets provide plenty of space for our shoes. We also added some hooks under the countertop to hang our jackets. Under the bottommost Faktum we added some aluminium profiles, so we can attach 2 Trofast boxes for gloves and scarfs.

Of course the lowest door is custom painted to match the room (not visible in photo).

Have fun!
