Tips for Picking the Right Clothes Hangers for Your Closet
If you have a small closet, maximizing the hanging space that you do have will be a priority. Struggling to get everything you want in your closet can be frustrating. If your clothes are so wedged and packed into your closet, leaving little to no space to move your hangers around, it is time to utilize some space saving tricks in order to store the most amount of clothing in your closet while still maintaining the ease in which you can access and look at the clothing. You will need to stragetize and choose the best cloest hangers for your space
The first step would be to pull any hanging garments off their current clothes hanger that you no longer wear see yourself wearing in the near future. Separate them into two piles, one a pile of clothing you think you can sell and one a pile of clothing you may want to donate or pass on to somebody else. This is especially important in children’s closets when they are constantly outgrowing clothing. A good time to do the closet hanger sort is right around the change of seasons, in the spring and in the fall. If you are not interested in selling any of the clothing, consider donating them to a local charity, if they are still usable.
The next step is to pull all of the clothing that is not in season out to be put in storage until that season rolls back around again. If it is winter, you can pack away the sun loving clothing, because it is time to bring on the sweaters. You might want to bundle items for storage - clothes hanger holders like garment bags are a good way to keep stored items wrinkle free and protect them from dust, sun or other environmental concerns. There are also options for freestanding closets where you can protect clothing on clothes hangers. Space savers for items you're willing to fold include under bed storage or plastic storage totes which you can either put on the floor of your closet under hanging clothes, in an attic, or a basement.
Now, you want to evaluate what you have and what kinds of hangers will best serve the clothing left. Consider the fabrics and the weight of your clothing when choosing the right clothes hangers.
