What's the best way to hang your coats?
Julia AnnaAugust 12, 2014
When it comes to hanging your clothes, what do you prefer - hooks, clothes racks or coat stand? Or is it better to have them hidden in your closet or drawers?
Hooks
Clothes rack
Coat stand
Other (closet, drawer..)

Sorry, this is confusing? Hanging your clothes, what clothes? I am not going to hang my PJ's on a coat rack. I am not going to put my coat in a drawer. Different racks, drawers, hooks, hangers for different clothes.;)

How about anywhere but the floor? (I hear exercise equipment makes a GREAT clothes rack) ;-)

Hanging your clothes ....I suppose one has to just to keep the peace.......but I would like to live a life where I do not have time 'to hang my clothes' ...capital punishment, even for clothes is terrible concept ....live and let live I say.... But if I really have to I would like to say Other .... (hoping that spring is eternal)

Great Question Julia! I guess putting your clothes on anything other than the floor is a great option. Clean rooms are the best rooms!

What a great question. My clothes are well hidden in a mirrored wardrobe!

It seems that your question refers to only coats. Every day wear coats, on hooks or coat stand at a place with easy access. Luxury coats, on coat hangers with shoulders covered of course hidden from butterfingered daughters Haha! Tops, on hangers in color wheel order. On the floor is fine, only when that drop is at the laundry area.

Clothes or coats…I prefer everything to be neatly tucked away in a closet… but somehow wearing apparel creeps onto doorknobs, over the backs of chairs and hanging from hooks over my bedroom closet doors (fresh from the dryer to let the wrinkles relax….or waiting for the painting project, cleaning chore or the wild dash down to the grocery store for something I forgot…)

Love the coat stand! Personally though I usually just keep my coats in the closet.

I had a coat stand once ... it fell over quite a lot. Doesn't work if there's only one coat, lol. Glad to get rid of it.

The best way to deal with a coat is to live where you don't need one.

If you want your clothes to last hang them on wooden hangers in a closet. Anything less than lasting, reduce how you care for them until, finally you 'hang' them on the floor.

I have always been an "all out" kind of person because if I can't see it, I can't use it (out of sight, out of mind in a really big way). This is not to deny that things must have their own place to live so I know where to look for them, as a consequence of my particular version of AD/HD. So the closet in my dream house will have hooks, racks, knobs, rods, and open shelving, but no drawers. Oh, and at least two floor-to-ceiling shelf units for boots and shoes, thank you. :-)

Ours were always thrown on the banister because no one took the time to hang it up each day. I compromised and got over the door hooks and placed it INSIDE the entry closet. Easy, neat and accessible.

The bulk of our outerwear is closeted but we have a coat tree nearby for 2-3 coats of the current season. The tree is handy for visitors, too.

Since bowling is out as a sport, buy a home with a bowling alley and "hang" your clothes on the bowling alleys.......

Put them away in a closet. Look at the home magazine, do you see coats hung in rooms?

Closet pole is full so I put my hanger on a hook inside the door. I needed a hanger so I got it from the closet pole. Now a coat is on the floor.

A mudroom locker is my vote! In Minnesota, we have big puffy coats, fall coats, rain coats, snow pants... When you have a large family and each person owns 4 different kinds of outerwear it adds up quick. With a locker system each locker could be for each person, or for each season, and you can have space for hats, mittens, etc in a drawer or cabinet above or below. Mandi @ Dura
