Hanger, Hanger in the Closet . . .

If you’re like most people, then you probably have multiple closets in your home that are full of hangers. And chances are you’ve also probably not thought much about what kind of hangers you’ve filled those closets with. But what if we told you that your hangers affect more than just how your closet looks? It’s important to know that there are many different options out there when it comes to choosing hangers and that not all hangers are created equally. While all hangers are designed to hold your clothes, there are some that do a better job than others and some that could even extend the life of your clothes.

   Plastic hangers are probably the most common kind of hanger. They’re inexpensive, easy to find, and they come in a wide variety of colors. But these hangers also have their downside. They tend to be lightweight, so they can’t be used to hang any of your heavier clothing items, and they also have a relatively short lifespan compared to other hanger types. Additionally, plastic hangers often result in more wrinkles and snags on clothes as a result of how they are made. So, while these hangers can save you money upfront, they may end up costing you more in the long run.

   Wooden hangers are more of an investment, but you get a sturdier hanger that gives your closet a clean and put together look in return. These hangers are best for your heavier items like suits, jackets, and sweaters. You can also find wooden hangers with clips on them for suit pants, skirts, and any other higher quality bottoms that you’re looking to hang rather than fold. Many would argue that wooden hangers are the best option. You won’t need to replace them as they are incredibly durable, they’re less likely to wrinkle your clothes, and they look nice in your closet.

   Velvet hangers are a fantastic nonslip option that also make a statement in your closet. Like plastic hangers, these can be found in many different colors. While velvet hangers are an excellent option for any garment, they were specifically designed with materials like silk or strappy items that have trouble staying on other types of hangers in mind. These hangers are also incredibly thin when compared to different types, so they can be a big help if you’re tight on space in your closet. 

   Accessory hangers are an organized closets best friend! From tie hangers, to belt hangers and even scarf hangers, gain more room in those drawers with these quick solving hanging organizers. Did you know hanging belts helps to protect the leather and keep it from cracking. You’ll never have to dig through a tangled mess again.

Good hangers are a vital part of getting your closet organized, but for many people, the hardest part is keeping it organized. Here are a few of our favorite tips for keeping your closet organized in the long term:


Find an Organization System That Works for You
When it comes to keeping your closet organized, find a system that works for you and stick with it. It could be anything from organizing your clothes by color, style, or season or even a combination of a few methods. No matter which way you choose, it’s sure to save you time and energy when it comes to looking for a particular piece of clothing in your closet.
Use Additional Organizers
Chances are, if you have as many clothes as most people do today, you won’t be able to fit everything in your closet on a hanger. You’ll also probably have a number of items that don’t need to be hung up or don’t properly fit on a hanger. For these items, additional closet organizers are a great way to keep everything tidy and always know where your clothes are. Home Basics carries all the closet organizers you need, from over the door shoe organizers to hanging organizers and under bed storage. These organizers will also help you to best utilize the space you have.
Invest in Good Quality Hangers
Investing in higher-quality hangers will end up saving you money in more ways than one. Firstly, you won’t need to buy new hangers every few months, and if you choose to buy wooden hangers, they could easily last you a lifetime. Additionally, higher-quality hangers can extend your clothes’ life because the clothing is less likely to get snagged on the hangers or end up as wrinkly.
