A GUIDE TO CLOTHES HANG­ERS

The first step to­wards wardrobe man­age­ment

The Simple Things - - NEST -

WOODEN

Much the most at­trac­tive op­tion and noth­ing says ‘orderly’ like a row of wooden hang­ers all fac­ing the same way. Some are shaped to suit jack­ets, some have a bar on which to hang trousers, and oth­ers are made of cedar to pre­vent mois­ture. There’s a huge se­lec­tion at the­hang­er­store.co.uk, start­ing from 82p each.

MUL­TI­PLE AND TIERED

A neat op­tion when space is tight: you can layer sev­eral skirts or pairs of trousers from one hook and clip in place to se­cure. Four and six tiers are avail­able, from £6.98, at con­tain­er­store.com.

PADDED

Although they have a hint of Granny’s wardrobe about them, these are an ideal choice for dresses and jumpers. A padded hanger will not in­tro­duce un­wanted bumps in fab­ric or da­m­age it, so Granny re­ally does know best. You can find satin padded hang­ers with a cute rib­bon bow for £4.95 at hang­er­world.com.

METAL

This is a style worth avoid­ing un­less you are con­sid­er­ing open­ing a dry clean­ing busi­ness. Clothes slip off them and gen­er­ally sit un­com­fort­ably. Rea­son­ably priced though, for bud­get lovers: £5.95 for 10, at hang­er­world.com.
