Closet still looks messy after installing a closet organizer? Does it not look as nice as the promotional pictures you've seen? What's the difference? The right hangers can give your closet a neater appearance. Let me show you why and some other tips.

Your closet is one of the first things you see every day. Having a neat, organized closet that's visually appealing which allows you to quickly find the clothes you want can really help you start off your day on a positive note. At the very least it will be one less frustration in your hectic day.

Imagine you walked into a shop and they had a rack of shirts using a mix of a dozen different types of hangers and the display looked messy. How would it make you feel about the clothes you were buying? When you open up your closet door do you want to feel like you're in a thrift store or a high end retailer where the clothes probably came from?

I have to admit that the aesthetic aspect was one of the driving factors in choosing to replace my clothes hangers but there are other benefits as well such as:
1. Save space.
2. Keep clothes from getting wrinkled, crushed or misshaped.
3. Make it easier to find what you're looking for.
4. Make it easier to put your clothes away so you don't wind up with your shirts on your footboard and your jeans pilled up in a corner.


Hanger Materials

From a visual perspective, it would be nice to have all the same hangers, but there are some hangers that are better suited to certain types of garments than others while still keeping costs down. My goal is going to be to get all the same type of material for particular types of clothes and have all the hangers at least have a chrome hook for uniformity.

Wire Hangers                                                                                                           
Wire hangers are great for all sorts of things. They can help you unclog a sink, fish wire through walls, unlock your car door if you locked yourself out, you can even make an HDTV antenna out of them, and they're a cheap way to transport your clothes from the dry cleaners. They're not so great for your clothes.

Over the years wire hangers have been getting thinner and weaker. They don't distribute the weight of the garment over a large surface area and aren't always wide enough which can cause indentations in the clothing. Apparently the metal can even discolor some fabrics, which is why when you get your clothes from the dry cleaners, there's sometimes a paper sleeve over the hanger or some cleaners use coated hangers.

Keep some wire hangers around because they can come in handy for different things, but once you get your clothes home from the cleaners, put them on better hangers. On your next trip to the cleaners, bring back your last set of wire hangers and see if they'll take them back so they don't wind up in a landfill. From what I understand many cleaners will accept them.

If for some reason you must have wire hangers (packing in a travel garment bag for instance) these Organize It All Chrome Hangers look nicer and stronger than the ones you get from the dry cleaner.


Plastic Tubular Hangers











These are better for your clothes than wire hangers and most of my closets were filled with them. They're not horrible but over the years you pick up some from the drugstore, the supermarket, and other locations and you wind up with a bunch of slightly different hangers in a rainbow of colors. It destroys the uniformity I'm looking to achieve.

Getting all new plastic hangers that are the same size and color is an option but it seems like a waste. If I'm going to replace my hangers I want to replace them with something better.

Another problem with plastic hangers is some hangers wind up becoming different sizes and shapes, over time some of the hanger hooks have deformed resulting in an uneven appearance that makes the closets look cluttered. Hanging heavy items, such as jeans, on the bar of the hanger can also cause them to deform as can be seen in the photo above.


Velvet Hangers           

These new types of hangers appear to be very popular. They have a chrome hook, which fits with my design goal, and the body of the hanger is a thin plastic that has a flocked surface. Think of the inside of a jewelry box. This velvet like surface provides friction to prevent clothes from slipping. They also have little indentations to hold on to clothes with thin straps so your tanks and spaghetti strap dresses don't wind up on the floor every time you look at them funny.

They're reasonably priced and have a lot of good reviews. The only big downside is that if you put wet clothing on them it can cause the color of the "velvet" to transfer to your clothing, or otherwise damage the textured coating. I usually hand wash my workout clothes when I'm done with them then throw them on hangers and allow them to air dry. I'm going to need to keep a few plastic hangers around for that.

Your suits and jackets should last you a long time if you take care of them and you should invest in decent hangers for them if yours didn't come with proper hangers.
