If you are new to the world of organizing, you may be thinking to yourself, What is a garment rack? In fact, garment racks are nothing new themselves, they have been around for ages. In the olden days, they usually took the form of a large, bulky armoire, and while it is still possible to find a full size, wooden clothing or bedroom armoire, many people are foregoing those classics in favor of modern, updated, lighter style garment storage racks.
Here is a run down of the basic different types of garment racks, what to do with them and where to find them:
Covered Garment Racks – These models have a few benefits over other garment racks. One is that they are designed to offer a bit more protection to your clothing. It all depends on what the fabric is made of, though.
Vinyl covered racks, such as the Easy View Crystal Clear Vinyl Wardrobe Closet offer maximum protection of your clothes, especially important if you are storing them in the garage or shed. Fabric covers, like the 48″ Portable Wardrobe with Shelves offer some protection and could still work in the garage, as long as there is not too much moisture. A model like this Wardrobe Center keeps dust and insects out, while still allowing for some air flow. It is compact enough for use in the guest room.
Rolling Garment Racks, like the Double Bar Rolling Garment Rack and single bar garment rack are great for use inside the home as a coat rack or as extra closet rod space. The beautiful wooden design is a premium choice and enhances any room’s decor. Casters make it easy to roll this stand in and out of place.
Simple Garment Racks – For the most basic of garment storage stands, the Fol-D-Rack simply can’t be beat. It has an ultra-minimalist style and a great price point. Plus it is portable, a big plus!
Other Types of Garment Storage – Not all garment racks are large, some come in smaller packages with just one type of storage in mind, like this Pant Trolley with Cedar Hangers. This is great for the office worker who uses slacks everyday. The rack is space efficient and eliminates wrinkles.
