No matter what type of clothing you need to store on a clothes or garment rack, there’s a perfect option for you. Do you have mainly dresses, Pants, Ties, Shoes, If so, you’re in luck! The most common types of clothes racks and garment racks are:
Single Bar Racks: These types of racks often are comprised of one long piece of wood or metal, with one bar on which to hang clothing’s.
Double Bar Racks: With two bars set close together, these types of racks can accommodate two rows of clothing but, because they are stacked, you’ll only be able to see one row at a time, and it will appear more cluttered. However, you may also find double racks with top and bottom rods. This option will allow you to hang two sets of shorter types of clothes, for example, shirts and jackets on the top and skirts or pants at the bottom.
Spiral and Round Clothing Racks: These racks feature one pole around which your garments will be fanned out in a circle, allowing for easy browsing and efficient storage of multiple pieces of clothing.
Belt and Tie Racks: Do you have a lot of belts, ties, or other long and thin items like scarves? These circular racks with myriad hooks are perfect for displaying your pieces so you can see and reach them all instantly while saving space.
What size of clothes rack or garment rack should I get?
Two factors will constrain the size of clothes rack: how much room you naturally have for your clothing rack, and the number and type of garments or pieces of clothing you wish to display or store.
First, start by measuring the area in which you’d like to have your garment rack. You’ll want to have a few inches of room on either side, so one indication for the size of rack you should get is simply a few inches less in length than the room you have available.
Finally, consider the weight and volume of the clothes you’ll be storing. Puffy winter coats will take up more room, and heavy denim will weigh more. If you’re planning on storing lots of heavier clothes, a heavy-duty metal double-rack is your best bet. However, if you’re only hanging one or two pieces, a tiny rack can be economical and look good in your room!
How to match your clothes rack or garment rack to your room decor?
Are you looking for your small clothes rack or garment rack to make an aesthetically pleasing statement? As these products come in many different colors and designs, you’ll be able to pick your finish for ultimate flair. Let’s think first, though, about what you want to say with your furniture in order to get an idea of what is worth picking.
Do you want your clothes rack or garment rack to stand out with bold colors and design? If so, look at the colors in your room and think about selecting the opposite colors and finish for your clothes rack. If your room contains muted natural hues, for example, going for a bright blue or yellow rack will make the garment rack your room’s focal point. Use the color wheel as your guide!
Would you rather let your clothes be the statement with the rack helping more to set the stage? If your clothes and your room tend to be louder in pattern or color, consider letting the clothing or garment rack recede into the background to let your clothes shine. In this case, picking a wood-toned, iron, or other naturally-colored clothes or garment rack may be best; and, as an additional perk, will exhibit more versatility should you decide to later switch up your style or move the garment rack from room to room.
As far as materials for your perfect clothes rack or garment rack, you can choose between wood, metal, or cloth. Even these options have within them significant variability: a metal clothes rack could be a sleek stainless steel option, a rosy gold statement piece, or an antique wrought iron piece for an industrial feel.
A cloth garment rack, on the other hand, is a great portable option for travelling, while wood stained naturally is a fantastic, durable and long-lasting accompaniment to any decor.
