5 Reasons to Use Clothing Racks Instead of Wardrobes in Your Bedroom

Posted on

When you're looking at bedroom storage options for your clothes, your first thought will probably be the traditional wardrobe, but that isn't the only option. Instead, why not consider using clothing racks to create some open storage? Instead of having your clothes concealed behind the doors of a cupboard, they're hung right out in the open, just like they would be in a shop.

It might sound like an odd idea at first, but here are just five compelling benefits.

1. Saves on Space

One of the best things about using racks instead of wardrobes is saving on space. They take up a little less floor space, and the fact that there are no doors dividing things up creates a lot more visual space, which helps the room feel larger. If your bedroom is on the smaller side, using racks instead of wardrobes can make a real difference.

2. Helps with Organization

You've spent years putting together your wardrobe, so you probably have something for every occasion. Unfortunately, that also usually means trouble keeping all those items organized. With a clothing rack, things are easier. Everything is on view and quickly accessible, so you'll never need to go hunting around to find what you need. Having everything open to view also prompts you to keep things tidy and get rid of what you don't need.

3. Provides Some Freedom

Freestanding wardrobes can be moved around, but not very easily. You'll need to take everything out and then get someone to help manhandle them to a new location. Clothes racks are much lighter, and they often come with wheels. If you want to change the layout of your bedroom, you can do so in a flash. That also comes in handy when you want to clean or decorate.

4. Added Style

The look of exposed clothes storage isn't for everyone, but many people find themselves enjoying the casual, bohemian-style appearance it brings to a room. As well as making things feel open and unique, using clothing racks allows you to use your favourite clothes, shoes, and accessories to accent and decorate the bedroom itself.

5. Prevents Mustiness

Finally, keep in mind that clothes stored in a wardrobe for weeks on end can come out smelling a little musty since they haven't met fresh air in some time. This might not be a huge deal, but wouldn't you rather keep your clothes smelling fresh by having them out in the open air and natural light instead of concealed behind wardrobe doors?
