What Houzz contributors are saying:
24. Quality controlYou may think that any old type of hanger will do, but trust us, it pays to invest in good-quality hangers for your closet. Avoid using cheap, thin plastic or wire hangers, as they can be flimsy or easily break. They can also crease, stain (in the case of wire hangers) or stretch out the shoulders of tops, too. Timber hangers may fall at the pricier end of the hanger scale, but they’re definitely worth the splurge. Thanks to their sturdy frame, all-purpose wooden hangers are ideal for both lighter and heavier garments, while their smooth, contoured design will ensure your clothes won’t sit too closely together, causing them to crease. Slimline flocked (non-slip) hangers made from durable resin and that feature gently curved shoulders, or sturdy plastic or chrome hangers with wide, contoured arms are ideal alternatives.Also, if possible, try to use the same style of hangers in your closet, as this will give your wardrobe a seamless, uniform look, especially if your wardrobe is sans doors.
10. Invest in sturdy hangersTrade in your wire hangers for sturdy wooden shouldered ones. They may be costlier, but they’ll treat your clothes a whole lot better. Wire hangers can strain, crease and stretch your garments. By upgrading your arsenal of hangers, you can keep your clothes in their original form and create an aesthetic arrangement within your wardrobe.
Categorise your clothing“Once you’ve let go of unwanted items, turn your attention to what remains,” says Anton Randall, director of home styling and organisation firm In the Closet.“Categorise clothing into a simple, ready-to-wear system. For example, put shirts together, colour-blocking from lightest to darkest, and hang dresses in categories such as strappy and long-sleeved. This makes it easier to hang items back up after washing, and will save you time getting ready.”
