Is your foyer forever piled high with a mountain of kicked-off shoes?  Don’t have a mudroom?  With simple tension rods, you can  create a discreet, customizable shoe rack in a nearby hall closet.  (Another hint: try hanging a pocket shoe organizer inside the closet door to store things like mittens, hats, sunscreen and dog leashes.)
