A GUIDE TO CLOTHES HANGERS
The first step towards wardrobe management
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.
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.
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.
