If your wardrobe is full to bursting, a clothing rack can add the extra space for the clothes you need. They can also be a great alternative if you move home frequently, as there’s no heavy lifting involved when you re-locate. A rack could equally help you organise your hallway or your utility room better. Take a look at the best on offer.

Elegant A shape

This rack will ensure your overnight visitors don’t have to live out of a suitcase, but it won’t take up the space a wardrobe would in a guest bedroom, nor cost you as much as one of these. As well as the hanging rail, there’s room for shoes or to set down a small bag on the shelves. In black steel, it’s a smart-looking addition to a room.  

Best adjustable rack

Sturdy design on wheels

The top and bottom shelves of this clothing rack can be altered to make shoes easier to grab or to accommodate long dresses. It’s strong enough for heavy coats and can support up to 79.8kg, so it’s a useful place to tidy them when summer comes around. The wheels can be locked in place for stability.

Best for couples

Double rail and shelves

This spacious design means two of you can have a rail each rather than arguing about where halfway is. You can stash shoes on the lowest shelf, and put folded clothes or smaller items in boxes on the one above. It has leveling feet so even if your floor’s not flat, the clothing rack can be made stable.

Shelf unit and rail in one

The shelves of this rack could be used for the clothes you store folded in a bedroom or create a place for the iron and laundry products in a utility room. It’s a good looker for whichever space you want it, and the metal hanging rail and wood-look MDF shelves are practical. You will have to assemble it yourself.

Best for the hall

You can even hang your hat and umbrella

If you’re after a clothing rack that can stem the tide of clutter in your hallway, this version might catch your eye. It won’t dominate the space since it’s a slim 70cm in width, but there’s still plenty of storage for coats, shoes, hats, and scarves. In steel with a black finish, it will compliment contemporary or industrial-style interiors.

Simple storage

A clothing rack is a minimalist take on clothes storage for bedrooms, guest rooms, and the hallway, as well as a handy feature for the utility room. The Shopfitting Shop Heavy Duty Clothes Rail is a super functional heavy-duty option with generous space and casters for easy movement.

Want a design that offers clothes and shoe storage for two of you, or provides lots of space for one? The JURMAERRY Garment Shoe Rack can fit hangers on the rails, has room for shoes and boxes on the shelves, and provides hooks for bags.
