Our modern homes often lack closet space, and some of us just live in small homes where making a separate closet is impossible. Today’s roundup is for these guys, it’s dedicated to clothes racks that can help to solve the problem.
There are a lot of configurations and materials to make such a rack, and we’ll take a closer look at them.
Metal And Wood Standard Clothes Racks
A rack can be ordered or made by yourself of metal and wood, these are the most popular materials for clothes racks as they are very durable and comfy in using. They are great for placing both in your bedroom for creating a makeshift closet and in your hallway.
Metal often serves a base for such a rack, and you can find shoe stands, shelves and even drawers and cabinets for storage within these racks. You can make such a stylish rack of copper tubing, using concrete for stability or just wooden parts. Another idea is to make a wooden or plywood rack if you need that warm feeling in your room, there are a lot of DIYs for all kinds of rack, just choose and realize it. You can also go for a thin rack made of only steel, and if you paint it white, it will visually disappear in front of a white wall.
There are some very original designer’s racks made of bold plywood or metal modules, they can really change the space and make a statement if needed. such racks often allow various changes and configurations you need, they are portable and can be folded if you want, so this is maximum functionality and practicality.
Screens and Space Divider Racks
A clothes rack isn’t only for clothes and accessories storage, it can easily fulfill one more function: a space divider or screen. This is an awesome idea for all the open-plan spaces, it helps you to divide your closet nook, or bedroom or hallway from all the rest of the space. Find a rack that looks like a decorative metal screen for storage or wooden piece with fabric straps to cover it and divide the space. such screen racks are portable, foldable and often have lots of configurations. Actually, if you have a thin rack, you can just hang some clothes on it and you’ll achieve almost the same effect.
Hanging racks are especially for those who don’t have much space – they won’t take any floor space, just hang a metal holder where you want and put your clothes on hangers on it. You can also hang a tree branch for clothes for a natural touch. My favorite idea is to hang a rack that is of the same color and texture as your walls, so this way it visually disappear in front of the wall and you’ll have the more uncluttered space than before. A hanging shelf is easy to remove when you don’t need it and to take with you to your new apartment.
