In divided times there is one thing we can all agree on: More closet space is always a good thing. And whether you are a city dweller, where closets are considered a luxury on par with windows that don’t face dumpsters and running water, or if you live in the burbs and your family members are just done with you hogging their closets, who can’t use an extra place to park their stuff?
The problem is getting a new closet built in can be a drag — there are permits, contractors and construction that make it prohibitive for many of us. However, there is a low cost solution that could solve all your storage issues with zero trouble at all — a clothing rack. I know what you’re thinking, unsightly chrome rod on wheels that constantly tips over. Nope, clothing racks have come a long way. In fact, they’ve gained so much functionality and style that they have become the fashion fiend’s preferred mode of storing stuff. There is just something about seeing all your lovely colorful threads and accessories exposed to daylight and having them easily accessible. So much so that lowly clothing rack has garnered its own popular hashtag.
When it comes to buying one, the selections are endless, so we’ve rounded up a few favorites that will look good in any space.
