Looking to keep your entryway organized?

If you’re tired of tripping over and/or picking up endless amounts of shoes by the door 🙋🏼‍♀️, IKEA’s highly rated HEMNES shoe organizer cabinet is a genius solution! 💡 This storage cabinet looks like a normal entryway table, but inside it secretly stores all your shoes, slippers, scarves, umbrellas, and other items you grab on the go. So smart!

IKEA HEMNES shoe compartment

This cabinet includes four pull-out compartments that can hold a total of up to eight pairs of shoes, and comes in three different color choices – white, black, or dark gray. You can even swap out the knobs to match your decor!

However, if you have more items to organize, there’s also a taller 2-compartment shoe cabinet organizer. While it only has two compartments, it actually has double rows so it can hold up to 12 pairs of shoes. There’s also a pull-out drawer that can hold keys, sunglasses, wallets, and other knick-knacks.

Check out these reviews about the HEMNES collection:

“My kids are notorious for leaving their shoes all over the place. Now I just tell them to put them in their “home”, and they go over and put them right away in this. I have four kids so each one gets a compartment to use. The only two issues are one, it is a little hard for my four-year-old to open. And two, I had to add leg extenders because my baseboards are tall and it didn’t fit over them. Besides that, I love this product.”

“I finally caved in and purchased this item after months of cursing the pile of shoes at our narrow front entry. We didn’t have the space for a normal shoe bench at the base of our stairs, so I was hoping to find something that would be stylish and functional. The HEMNES shoe cabinet fit the bill. I liked the shorter version better, but needed the extra space (large men’s shoes) that this one provided and it has a extra drawer for all those little things (keys, wallet, etc).”

“We have a small entryway and were looking for a thin cabinet to place our keys. This shoe cabinet was perfect! It doesn’t take up much space, and even fits my husband’s shoes (size 12)!”

Keep in mind that these cabinets only have two legs at the front so they can stand close up to the wall above the baseboard. AND, the back panel has pre-drilled holes to make it easier to secure.

    I have this in our entry way and I absolutely love it!! I bought it about 5 years ago. I will be purchasing a second one for my bedroom.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Thanks a ton for the feedback, Amy! Happy you have been loving yours! This is the first I have seen these and I could really use this in our foyer! We always have too many shoes out! LOL!

    When I started having babies we quit wearing shoes in the house. One more way to keep the floor clean for their little crawling hands 🙂

    My daughter has several items from the Hemnes line and I highly recommend!

      Thanks for letting us know, Ihearthip! We appreciate your comment!

    We’ve had these for several years now and love them! The only downfall is the taller one breaks easily. I’ve called IKEA though and they send me new parts!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Wow, so glad to hear they send the new parts! That’s great customer service, Mandy!

  4. Courtney

    We had the taller ones for about six months before they broke, returned and bought a square shelf thing with baskets instead.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Thanks for the honest comment, Courtney! Sorry to hear they didn’t hold up well!

  5. Catherine Southern

    We have one of these and I LOVE it! Thinking about adding three more for our homeroom classroom! Not just for shoes! 🙂

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Great idea, Catherine Southern!

  6. Corina Mora

    I have this in our closet. I hide gifts in it.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Great hiding spot!

    I looked at these but I live in an apartment and didn’t want to have to make a ton of holes screwing it into the wall so it would stand up. I ended up getting a similar one from IKEA called BISSA – it’s way cheaper, stands on it’s own, and looks great!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh neat! Thanks so much for the heads up on your find!
