If you use a shelf to store your shoes but it looks somewhat drab, we have a solution to spice things up. Shelf liners come in all different materials and sizes as well as various colors and whimsical patterns to decorate your space. Instead of painting, which tends to be messy and time-consuming, liners can be applied to any smooth, clean surface in minutes, pretty effortlessly. You can choose from two types: self-adhesive or non-adhesive. If you’re concerned about the latter moving around and needing adjusting, you may want to go with a peel and stick style featuring an adhesive backing. However, keep in mind that there’s the chance it may leave residue behind when it’s time for removal. Both options are attractive, though, and will prevent shoes from dirtying up shelves. Read on ahead to shop a few options on the market we compiled.
