Portable Garment Racks – Convenient Temporary or Permanent Clothing Storage

Portable garment racks give you instant clothes hanging storage in temporary or “unideal” situations. Say you have a visitor who is spending a few months with you. You give them the spare attic room but there’s no built-in closet, as you normally use it for crafting. Of course you want your guest to be comfortable and convenienced, but you probably don’t want to build a custom closet. Solution? Portable garment racks.

They come in enclosed and freestanding, open styles – and in a range of prices. Say your new college apartment is under-equipped with closets and you just need some extra closet space. Again, portable garment racks are the idea storage solution. The cool part is you can repurpose them later when your living situation changes, or you find that dream apartment with all the storage space you need.

Portable garment racks are also ideal for off-season storage. In the winter, use it as a basement coat rack to store all your outerwear. Hunting clothes are another garment that you don’t need year-round. Just put them in a portable, zippered garment rack and forget about them until deer hunting seasons opens again.

A Good Garment Rack is Nothing Without Great Hangers!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

There are many details that have to be aligned to perfect your wardrobe storage. While we stress the importance of a great garment rack, there are many other factors we know to be just as vital.

We here at Garment Racks Blog have seen our fair share of hangers. We recently decided to compile out top three favorites. We based our choice on style, material and overall quality. Here is what we found:

Bumps Be Gone Hangers

We chose the Bumps Be Gone Slim as our favorite over-all hanger. These things can manage t-shirts, blouses, sweaters, pants, dresses, suits — all of it! And do without compromising structural integrity, too.

These flexible hangers are designed to be adjusted to accommodate your specific wardrobe. You can bend the arms up or down to best fit a certain piece.

The slim design lets you fit more in your closet and works wonders for traveling, too. Fold them up to fit in your luggage and keep clothes wrinkle-free during your hotel stay.

The Slim Bumps Be Gone Hangers come in a set of six and run just under $15 a set.

Ten Hook Tie and Belt Hanger

When it comes to accessory hangers, there was some competition, but we ultimately settled on the Tie and Belt Hanger. While there are some beautifully intricate scarf hangers, we choose this simpler design because it is easier to use and fit for belts as well as neckties too.

Ten separate hooks let you hang numerous accessories and access any one at any time without shuffling through the others. The rubber tips hold pieces in place, too.

The slim design can be hung from any style closet rod or bar. Durable metal provides quality through the years to come.

This handy little guy is just $4!

Wood Slack Hangers

We have accessories and tops covered, so we wanted to make sure our third choice focuses on pants and slacks. The Wood Slack Hanger was no question. This winning hanger is made from solid wood and feature a nice glossy finish.

The clamping design works with any style pant. Plus, a swivel head means you can fit them in closet.

The Wood Slack Hangers are $7.99 plus shipping for five.

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!

30-Line 210' Steel Clothesline - by Household Essentials

30-Line 210′ Steel Clothesline – by Household Essentials

What with running the air conditioner or having blowing fans throughout the house summer can seem like a difficult time to take any environmentally friendly steps around the house. That doesn’t have to be the case though! Make the most of that hot summer sun with items that span from the traditional to high tech.

Don’t waste money drying clothes in the dryer when a classic clothesline can do the job just as well. Adding a clothesline like the 5-Line Retractable Clothesline is a convenient way to gain drying space when it’s needed. This clothesline features a retractable design so the line can be stored out of sight when not in use.

Looking for a more heavy duty drying option? The 3″ Diameter Clothesline Post or the 30-Line 210′ Aluminum Clothesline provide lots of clotheslines for drying. These clotheslines are great for a larger yard with lots of space for a more permanent option. A clothing line is a must have in the summer when there are always towels from the pool that need to dry. Keeping clothes out of the dryer is also a good way to cut down on the wear and tear of drying in a dryer.

Like to enjoy the backyard at night? Save energy by choosing outdoor lights that stores up sunlight with built in solar panels so you can enjoy your garden night and day. Coming in a variety of designs and styles it’s easy to find lighting that looks great with your décor and works with your lighting needs. Consider using solar powdered lighting in the front yard as well. Light up your address plaque or front walkway with a solar powdered light so the light doesn’t have to pull power off the grid.

With a few small steps you cut back on energy use and energy bills which is good for the environment and your wallet.
