Maximize your wardrobe with a clothes drying rack

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.

Clothing storage to fit your space and style

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.
