Let’s face it, sometimes you want to put a garment rack in the guest room to make your overnight visitors more comfortable, especially in rooms where there is no closet (such as the office), but you just don’t have the space. And in fact you might actually be reducing the comfort level in the room by adding bulky organizers! If you’re in this boat, then a luggage rack, like this folding luggage rack by winsome trading company might just be the solution you’ve been looking for! A luggage rack technically is a garment rack, it’s just in a different form. I think luggage racks are a fun addition to the guest room or office or bedroom, because they make the room look just like a hotel room, a fun way to show your overnight visitors that you really and truly care about their comfort level! When choosing a luggage rack, there are so many different styles and price points, how to choose?
Here are some things to think about when purchasing your first luggage rack:
• Style – Yes! Luggage racks can serve a style purpose in the home. For example, if you have a contemporary styled bedroom, look for metal or wood racks with clean, modern lines. If you have a traditionally styled home, a wooden luggage rack with fabric straps may be the way to go for a country or French cottage feel.
• Folding – I always recommend that people choose a luggage stand that folds. This way you can keep it in the back of the closet when you are not hosting overnight guests. Otherwise you are talking about adding a little bit of clutter to the room that is simply unnecessary.
• Price – A very cheap luggage rack is probably not a good idea – how embarrassing would that be if guests set their suitcase on the rack and it broke? Very. I would go mid-range. Above a certain price point, any added benefit is probably just aesthetic.

WallSaver wooden luggage racks
When I go home to visit my family, I always stay with my mother, which is such a treat. She loves having “her baby” back for the weekend and does everything she can to make me feel welcomed and cared for. Those visits are such a special time for my mom and me. And she gets all excited when she gets to fuss over my accommodations and put thought into every little detail. The fold out couch in the guest room gets a cozy down mattress topper and pretty bedding. Fresh flowers greet me when I get to my room, as well as a set of matching towels and a ceramic cup for my toothbrush. She never falls short of making my place to stay feel even fancier than a five-star hotel!
One thing that I think she is especially proud of is her WallSaver wooden luggage rack that lives in the closet. I mean, I had only seen suitcase racks in hotels until the last few times I stayed at my mom’s house. They are just so convenient when you have to unpack and pack your suitcase. Or especially, if you have to live out of your suitcase, it puts it up at a comfortable height for retrieving clothes. I think my mom takes pride in her enthusiasm for taking care of houseguests and making them feel comfortable, and this luggage stand really shows it.
The WallSaver suitcase stand is especially cool because it has this bar in the back that keeps your suit case from banging against the wall and damaging it. I have appreciated it when I stay there so much that I put one in my own guest room to help visitors feel extra comfortable when staying for the weekend! And as a bonus, when it’s not being used as a rack for luggage I can use it to stack blankets and pillows!
