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.

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.

5 Must Have Closet Organizers

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Are you feeling fed up with your closet?  Is it hard for you to find articles of clothing or shoes and is everything getting crushed and wrinkled?  I’m here to help folks.

If you’re about to undertake a closet makeover and you’ve done some research, then you’ve learned that there is a MULTITUDE of closet organization products.  And I know it can get overwhelming, trying to decide what’s best for you.  This post is dedicated to those who (like myself) are living with a bare bones closet that doesn’t have built in shelves or cabinets.  It’s time for you to make your closet more functional and organized!

Here are my recommendations for turning a nightmare closet into the closet of your dreams:

1.  Hanging Shelves – usually made from canvas, these products give you an instant way to store folded clothing in the closet.  If you’ve run out of dresser space for sweaters and jeans, you don’t have to stuff them into the drawers.  Hanging shelves maximize your closet’s potential, keep clothes in easy reach, and free up space in your drawers.

2. Shoe Rack – there are many schools of thought on how to best keep your shoes organized, and I would say it comes down to a case by case basis.  But overall, I believe in the traditional floor shoe rack which goes along the bottom of your closet.  There isn’t much else you can use that space for and without a shoe rack, your shoes will be in a messy pile.  And we’re trying to fix that here!

3.  Closet Doubling Rods – probably one of the most essential closet organizers!  You can get an extra rod that hangs below the built in one, giving you twice the hanging space.  Hang shorter items like blouses and sweaters here, and they won’t overlap.  I have always trusted in this Double Hanging Closet Rod.

4.  Tie/Belt Racks – undoubtedly, you are the owner of several ties, belts and scarves.  Hang them up so they remain untangled and easy to access with something like this Accessory Rack.

5.  Shelf Organizers – even a basic closet usually has a shelf running across the top, over the clothing rod.  To make the best use of this space, purchase shelf baskets to line the top.  I use mine for holding out of season clothing, bathing suits, hats and winter gloves, and more.  Trust me, it will look so tidy and clean!

So if you’re feeling lost when it comes to closet organization, start with these five suggestions.  Don’t overwhelm yourself with fancy systems for now, just stick with the basics and you will see a huge improvement!

Seasonal Clothing Storage 101

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

garment bagsA great way to keep your closets clutter-free is to store your out of season clothing elsewhere.  That means, during the winter your summer clothes go into storage and vice versa during the summer.  Don’t worry if you do not have a garage, there are plenty of places to find storage around the home – you just need to know where to look for it!  When it comes to managing clutter, especially when it comes to clothing, I absolutely treasure garment bags, which come in various styles.  Some garment bags hang over the closet rod to keep long coats and dresses stored, while others are designed for packing up sweaters and keeping them under the bed.

Ideally (if you have a garage) you should keep a garment rack in the garage for hanging items.  That way, all you have to do is transfer the hanging clothes to the garment rack and zip them up in some sort of protective storage bag.  You’ll want that bag to have good strong seams, somewhat rigid to maintain shape, and be transparent so you can see through to what’s inside.  Never go the easy route and use garbage bags, folks, you’ll regret it!  If you do not have a garage for storing seasonal clothes, you will have to be a little more creative.  But it is not difficult – utilize space under the bed, under the sofa, in a hall closet, etc.

Space Bags and other containers which use a vacuum to suck out the air are a dream come true for people with limited storage space.  Use those to hold your sundresses and tanks in the winter and your sweaters and scarves in the summer.  No matter how you go about it, you are sure to find that storing seasonal clothes is the key to having an organized and de-cluttered closet!
