Clothing storage to fit your space and style

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Finding the perfect clothing storage is essential. You want something that is going to fit your wardrobe, but also fit the style and space of your closet or bedroom. 

While garment racks remain an excellent choice for large wardrobes, they’re not always a great fit decor wise. But there can be middle ground between the simple garment rack and large, bulky dressers or wardrobes. And I’ve found it!

Storage shelves and bins 

Chest of drawers, storage shelf — whatever you choose to call them, this style of clothing storage is perfect for any space. You can find these shelves in a million different styles and easily customize them to fit your needs. Choose the number of bins you use, how they’re arranged and even use two units together to create a bigger storage piece.

My most recent find are these Bamboo Storage Towers. Available in a 43 inch by 13 inch style or a 34 inch by 18 style, both of these tall chest of drawers include four bins. These shelves are constructed from environmentally friendly bamboo with a natural finish that brings a classic accent to any decor. The wider shelf comes with two small bins and two large bins, perfect for containing clothes, accessories, handbags and more. The taller of the two comes with four the smaller bins.

These shelves are great as space-conserving secondary clothing storage in your bedroom, but they also work great in closets or even master bathrooms.

These shelves are great because they have the efficiency of a classic storage shelf or garment rack, but they offer a stylish alternative that blends in great with the comfy decor of any bedroom. It doesn’t look like plain old storage — but it still performs the task.

Garment Racks for Beginners

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

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.

Double Bar Rolling Garment Rack

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.

Looking for a gift for that recent grad setting up their first apartment? While they need pretty much everything, it can be difficult to think of a present that is practical and fun. Storage for a collection of their favorite items can be a great solution, you just have to figure out what they like and find the right storage solution.

For any young woman with a love of bags or shoes an organizer is a welcome addition to their closet. A hanging bag organizer is a great storage solution for anyone with so many bags they don’t know what to do with them. Look for one with individual slots so taking it out doesn’t cause an avalanche of bags. This makes finding the right bag a breeze. Looking for a present for a serious shoe lover? Consider getting them a shoe rack with a fun, modern look to give their closet a stylish touch.

Movie lovers who have DVDs scattered all over their apartment will appreciate a sleek DVD rack so they can always find the movie they’re looking for. DVD organizers come in sizes big and small so it’s easy to find the right size. Consider a modular option so they can add more storage space as their collection grows.
