Not only can it ruin your floors if it is there for too long, but it is also not always the most visually appealing. An easy, yet aesthetic, way to hold shoes is with a decorative tray. Try Target or Home Goods to find one that matches your home’s decor. Some homeowners add stones to the tray to raise the shoes up out of the water in the bottom.
