No matter what the season, gardening always carries the risk of muddy boots and shoes but you can help keep floors clean and clear by storing them in a welly boot rack, many of which are even suitable for year-round outdoor storage.
A range of designs, in various sizes are available. Some simply stand on the ground, others can be mounted on walls, while some feature sloped rain roofs for use outdoors.
For inspiration, we’ve pulled together a selection of boot storage ideas below. And if you’re planning to organise other tools and gardening equipment, we also have a list of shed storage ideas as well as garden storage ideas for larger garden items.
