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!

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.

Modular Storage Systems 101

Every year at “back to school” time, I like to take on a new project.  With the kids away at school every day, I finally have a little time to refocus my energy on household tasks.  The two biggest problem areas in my home are always the laundry room and my closet.  And when it comes to my closet especially, I can’t stand disorganization!

My closet storage project began with me looking for a new dresser.  I wanted something to go in the closet, because I’m tired of the bulky dresser we already have taking up valuable space in the bedroom.   I want to free it up for a comfy and stylish accent chair or maybe a decorative chest with pretty little things displayed on top.  The problem is that most dressers aren’t built to go inside the closet.  I’ve looked everywhere and even though some came close, there was always something not quite right about them.

modularThen I remembered closet modular storage!  This is what a picky shopper and control freak like myself needs.  I can customize every aspect of my clothing storage solution, and I don’t have to search anymore for a dresser that fits my needs.

Now, some people are apprehensive about setting up a modular storage system – I totally get that, I had the same fears.  But it’s really just a matter of visualizing and accurate measuring.

You just have to have a clear idea of what you need and it’s as simple as making a list.  Then, just measure your space and it helps to make a drawing.  You don’t have to be good artist!  If you can draw a stick figure, you can draw up a plan for your new closet storage system.

Garment Rack and Closet Quotes

Once in a while, I like to have a little fun with this blog share my favorite quotes.  You might be surprised that there actually are some great quotes out there related to closet organizing and garment racks.

If you can’t get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you’d best teach it to dance.” – George Bernard Shaw.  Well said.  This is of course about the metaphorical closet, but I love the idea that we don’t have to be ashamed of our “skeletons”.

I like my money right where I can see it… hanging in my closet.” – Sarah Jessica Parker.  Love that girl!  I’ll bet she has a fabulously organized closet for all her fabulous clothes.  That might be the inspiration for my next post – Celebrity Closets.  Hmmmmmm.

kaskadeA closet full of wire hangers can be the most dangerous place in the world.” – Paul Lynde.  I agree!  Best to get some nicer hangers like these Kascade Vertical Wood Hangers.  You can hang them along the rod of your closet or hang them vertically on each other to maximize closet space.  Plus the wood is much more sophisticated than metal or plastic hangers.

Behind every working woman is an enormous pile of unwashed laundry.” – Barbara Dale.  It’s true; whether you’re a working woman or a stay at home super-mom, we just can’t get everything done.  And for a lot of us, it’s laundry day which suffers the most!

I’ll leave you on that note because it got me thinking about this:  in today’s fast paced world we try and try really hard.  With almost endless resources to keeping our homes organized, it can be almost overwhelming at times.  Best we have a little fun and enjoy the ride, don’t you think?  That doesn’t mean abandon all of your household duties but lets cut ourselves some slack once in a while and have a good laugh!

 

New Product Alert! Simplicity Closet System

It’s time for us all to give in and admit that the standard one-rod closet just doesn’t work anymore. 

If it had, we wouldn’t have started inventing closet organizers like hanging shelves and shoe racks.  It has a nice idea and it served a purpose for many years but these days?  Well, there are a couple of issues.  One, we have more stuff.  Not just clothing, but accessories to go with them.  And we have seasonal clothes, formal wear casual wear, the list goes on!  And two, we simply have evolved and organization has become a part of our level of sanity and happiness.

simplicity

Enter the Simplicity 12′ Closet Shelving System by John Louis Home.  It takes the guesswork out of creating a custom closet.  Everyone wants the look and convenience of a custom closet, but not everyone is clever when it comes to construction and designing.  Here are my favorite features:

*Quality, solid wood construction                              *Modern yet timeless wood finish options
*Adjustable shelf lengths
*AFFORDABLE!
*Mounts anywhere, even outside of a closet

I know it seems intimidating to install a closet shelving system on your own, but the name Simplicity means it’s design to be easy for the average person, not carpenter.

Of course there are more complex versions available if you need something a little more elaborate and have someone to do the installation for you.  Either way, I believe amazing products like this further prove my point that no one is satisfied with the traditional closet.  And why should we be?  Look at all the benefits you get from a custom closet.  Everything is tidy and easy to find, plus you end up actually gaining closet space!  Someday (once we’ve really evolved) this kind of thing will be standard in all homes, even rental apartments.  No complaints here!
