Tilt-out Shoe Cabinet Pros and Cons
I use tilt-out shoe cabinet from Coaster. It looks modern and has only 11-inch depth, which means that it does not take much space, especially if you want to place it in narrow space. The material looks a bit cheap but you can’t expect much at this price.
Assembly was hard… I asked a professional to assemble because I knew that this kind of furniture would break so quickly if you don’t assemble correctly. It took more than he expected to put together but still, he could not align the shelf? He was able to assemble well after he ordered some parts from the manufacturer. He said that it was not easy. I was happy that I did not do it myself.
The problem happens when you start closing and opening the door. If you put only a few shoes they go everywhere and sometimes it is hard to find them. Kids shoe is easily lost in this cabinet.
Also, the big shoe gets flattened a bit.
However, it still does the job if you store three or four shoes in each component. Good news is high-heels fit well!
I reviewed Coaster Shoe Cabinet here. However, similar cabinets are commonly available from different manufacturers. All look modern and they come in one, two or three drawers and different colors. 2-drawers is your choice if you want to put something such as key boxes on top of the cabinet.
Tilt-out drawer shoe cabinet can store more shoes than the same size of the regular shoe cabinet. If you can’t decide which shoe cabinets are good for you, read the blog “which types of shoe storage is right for you?” first!
- Double the spaces compared with regular shoe cabinets
- Slim and modern looking

- Shoes may get lost inside
No assembly required Tilt-out Shoe Cabinet
If you want to have tilt-out shoe cabinet, I would recommend hiring someone to assemble it for you or buying assembled one. Since most of this type of cabinet is hard to assemble, it would be easy to break (even if somebody really good at assembled it). So I would buy the assembled one if you can afford it. They are not cheap, but last long!
