I’ll admit, it may seem strange to add a drying rack to your closet, but if you struggle with limited space, hear me out. I have lived in rentals of all sizes and I have had to get creative with my clothes storage more than once. One of the more convenient ideas that I had during my time as a seasoned renter was the clothes drying rack. There was one bedroom in particular that had no closet whatsoever. I had a small dresser for the basics, but there are a few pieces that just had to be hung up. I kept them in the laundry room for a short period, but it was too inconvenient in the mornings when I got dressed. Then it dawned on me — why not move that rack to my bedroom?
So I did some searching and I found a tension rod style drying rack that was perfect. This slim design fit perfectly in a corner of my bedroom, allowing me tons of vertical space without cluttering up treasured floor space.
The unique style features multiple arms that can be swung around and pointed in any direction. Tucked in the corner, I would turn them all in towards the wall and only swing them out when I was searching for something. This not only allowed me space, but let me keep it flush with the wall so it didn’t jut out into the room.
I bring this idea up because I recently moved into a smaller home. It has all the features I love, but I compromised a little on storage. I knew going in that was something I could work on. Once again, it proves how important maintaining proper organization is. By cutting down my wardrobe (how often do you really wear that those leather pants) and utilizing organizers in creative ways, I can enjoy the things I love about my smaller home.
This rack would work wonders in any tight space: small closets, laundry rooms (of course) and like I said, the bedroom.
If you’re troubled by a clutter, organization or storage issue, try to think outside of the box and around the house.
