When your closet runs out of room, you may need to use a garment rack to handle some of the overflow. There are many different kinds to choose from, so use this information to make sure you get the clothing rack that fits your needs.

  1. Clothing racks are great for storing out of season clothing. Many garment racks are rolling racks, or adjustable heights to help you maximize the space and roll it into a storage area. If you are storing indoors, you may want to use a canvas cover for your garment rack. This will help to keep your clothes from getting dusty while they sit in storage. If you are storing them in a basement or garage, use cedar hangers to absorb moisture, repel pests, keep odors at bay, and prevent the growth of mildew on your clothes.
  2. Rolling garment racks are sometimes adjustable, or you can add adjustable extenders to make more room. Some have additional rails for hanging even more clothing. Use specialty hangers for combining like items, like skirt hangers or pants hangers, cascading hangers and merchandising hangers. This will help you to save space on the bar. By combining items on one hanger, you can essentially double the space.
  3. Shelving garment racks have a hanging bar with shelves. Shelves are great for storing sweaters, shoes, gloves, hats, scarves and more. Some have a large shelf across the bottom, while others have a row of shelves for storing smaller items. Some covers have pockets on the outside for storing smaller items. Choose a design that fits what you need to use the rolling clothes rack for.
  4. Clothing racks are also commonly used in the home to help organize laundry. You can pull your clothes straight out of the dryer and hang them, separate them into stacks or bins and then simply roll them to the room where you need to put them away. This can save you a lot of time and hassle. No more ironing clothes that sat in the dryer too long. If you do have wrinkled clothes, hang them, then use a hand held steamer to remove wrinkles.
  5. Clothing racks are also very useful for getting clothes that you do not normally wear out of the closet. Use your rack as a staging area for clothes that you want to sell in a garage sale, or give away to charity. Clothing hung on a bar sells a lot better, faster and for more money than clothing that is piled up on a table or crammed in a box.

    You are sure to enjoy the benefits of having a garment rackat your house. Whether you use it for laundry, storage or a garage sale, you are sure to get your money’s worth out of it.
