Garment racks, while typically known for their commercial use, can make for great storage and organization options in your own home. Use them for clearing up the clutter that has accrued on your floor or as an easy way to store your heavier seasonal clothing items (winter coats) that can take up valuable closet space.
Garment racks are also a great option for rooms that don’t have a dedicated closet or wardrobe for hanging clothes. With a garment rack, users can keep their clothes organized and wrinkle-free, regardless of how much storage space they have (or don’t have) in their bedroom, front hall or basement.
Below are some great garment racks that are either industrial-grade and/or heavy-duty and will hold all of your clothing and accessory items. Some of the racks are made with Z-Bases that, when not in use, allows you to nest multiple racks, giving you greater storage and extra space. These racks also have fast and easy knock-down construction making them portable and easy to store. For users who want to be able to move their racks, we’ve included options with durable wheels.
Get your clothes off the floor and keep them clean and looking new with a useful garment rack.
