Chic Garment Racks That Provide Modern Clothing Storage

Most people have struggled with a lack of closet space at one point in their lives. The hassle of cramming garments and trying to stay organized seems impossible without a spacious closet to make the process easier. But what if getting dressed and storing clothes could be made much easier? The addition of a garment rack may be just the solution you need to get your style life back on track. Here are some DIY garment racks that you could incorporate in your home.

Avoid sacrificing precious floor space with this hanging rack by Apartment Therapy. If you have an awkward, unused corner in your room that you just can’t seem to decorate, hang a clothing rack. Your space will gain functionality and you’ll have much needed space for clothes- it’s a win-win.

The reclaimed wood trend gets a minimalistic twist with this hanging rack from Love Aesthetics. A sturdy branch spray painted in white provides the perfect finishing touch in an all-white room. To maintain the uniform look, use white hangers and display clothes in similar hues.

Avid DIYers know the mystical powers of a well-stocked hardware store. This garment rack DIY by Rachel of A Beautiful Mess draws inspiration from a handyman staple- steel pipes. If the industrial feel doesn’t fit with your current decor, spray paint the steel and hardware to soften the appearance.

Claire of Camille Styles also transformed pipes into a chic clothing rack. The inclusion of a wooden shoe rack at the bottom makes this piece extra useful and provides additional space to personalize the project. While Claire featured gold and mint green stripes to liven up her design, you could stick to a solid color or even cover it with fabric.

This airy garment rack by Michele of Hello Lovely Inc. would be right at home in a little girl’s room. The feminine pastel colors and shabby chic pipes make for a beautiful, one of a kind DIY. Achieve the same worn look by lightly sanding your pipes before assembly.

Bring nature into your home with this nursery DIY featured on Chic and Cheap Nursery. You and your little one will adore the rustic appearance next to dainty details like striped wallpaper and floral prints. Because baby clothes are much smaller than adult ones, feel free to position the rack lower on the wall.

Though simple in construction, this plumbing pipe from Love Aesthetics is absolutely stunning. Because the frame leans against the wall for support, this project can be completed in about an hour- perfect for weekend organizing. For visual interest, use hardware in a contrasting color like gold or silver.

Go for the unexpected with this mini clothing rack from Love Aesthetics. The front facing design allows you to easily display your favorite pieces, whether for future inspiration or for your outfit the next day. Add a touch of elegance with copper hangers- they provide the perfect contrast against a white wall.
