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 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.

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.
