For many of us, clothes hangers and wardrobes can be a sore point and the bane of our domestic existence. From a purely functional perspective, many houses (especially older ones) demand the self-installation of robe systems, necessitating many an uncomfortable hour traipsing through labyrinthine department stores in search of something that is both functional and aesthetically appropriate for our interior needs. Often, compromises are made between functionality and the desire to have something that actually looks good in the bedroom, to say nothing of the need to conserve space too. Thankfully, there are so many great solutions out there these days—open wardrobes and hanging racks that are designed with functionality, home aesthetics and space saving methods in mind. 

Hanging your suits, shirts and the rest need not be an arduous task; take a spin through the great open wardrobe and nifty, artistic hanging racks in the examples below, and get the imagination firing in order to achieve the best clothes storage solutions for your boudoir.

For many of us, hanging our clothes out for the world to see is an undesirable and confronting experience. Almost all of us have those mismatched items, broken or worn out, yet much loved pieces that although might be comfy, are unfortunately unsightly too. If you do not have a built in robe, you inevitably must hang your clothes out in the open. In order to draw attention away from the contents on your hanger, pick a clothes rail that is colourful, striking and most of all distracting. Your guests will spend their time fussing over what a cute piece of furniture you have, and less time on its contents.
