Spend some time in your closet to get a sense of its current feel. Does your sacred space feel cluttered, containing a mix of hanger types holding clothes improperly?
Or, does it boast an elegant, streamlined look with one consistent aesthetic - with clothes stored securely and adequately?
If your closet could use some updating, start by assessing how you’re hanging your clothes. Flimsy hangers don’t just diminish the look of your wardrobe—they can also affect the shape and condition of your clothes.
On the other hand, high-quality wooden hangers can create a luxury look while protecting your clothes more than any other option. In fact, luxury wooden hangers have been known to save the most important evening plans.
However, the look of a luxurious, well-organized closet comes with a cost, and some people might be wary of spending so much on hangers. But - viewing these hangers as a long-term investment—one that optimizes both your closest organization and the condition of your clothes—allows you to see the clear long-term advantages.
Luxury wooden hangers are worth the investment. Just like you invest in high-quality suits and professional attire to look your best, so too should you invest in proper hangers. Protect your clothes and ensure they retain the shape and appearance that you love. Doing so allows you to extend the life of your clothes, which can save you money in the long term.
Invest in your wardrobe with luxury wooden hangers. Learn more about why these hangers are an intelligent choice that helps you elevate the look and function of your closet.
When you’re shopping for hangers, you have plenty of choices. Your closet might be full of wire hangers that you receive from your dry cleaner when your shirts and suits come home. Perhaps you pick up plastic hangers at big-box stores because they’re inexpensive and easily accessible. Luxury wooden hangers are a more durable design, but they cost you more, too.
So, which type of clothing hanger is best for your garments? Let’s take a look at the different types of hangers and evaluate their features.
Wire hangers might be easy to access, but they aren’t the best long-term solution for clothing storage. Wire hangers aren’t remarkably durable. Just take a look at some of the wire hangers in your closet to assess their durability.
These hangers bend easily, which can result in misshapen hangers that leave awkward indentations in your clothing. These indentations can be hard to remove, even with an iron.
Even more, wire hangers can’t support heavier garments and will simply bend under the added weight, which might result in your high-quality clothes ending up on the closet floor. As a result, you’ll be replacing hangers more often if you choose wire styles.
Plastic hangers, while convenient and inexpensive, pose several problems, too. They’re not as durable as wire hangers, which means they can’t support heavier clothes properly. A heavy suit coat or suit jacket hung on a single plastic hanger can cause it to snap.
Additionally, plastic hangers don’t offer any grip and can cause clothes to slip right off of the hanger. Plastic hangers also don’t hold the shape of clothes well, which can cause your garments to look worn more quickly.
As a result, you might even find that flimsy plastic hangers shorten the lifespan of your clothing.
Wood hangers are the top-of-the-line option for closet organization, making it the preferred choice for hangers for several important reasons.
First, they deliver unmatched durability, holding up well no matter the weight or size of your garment. For example, wood hangers work well as coat hangers or luxury suit hangers because they’re capable of supporting the added weight of these pieces.
Plus, these hangers also add a stylish touch to your closet. These attractive hangers create a uniform look, helping you curate a luxury wardrobe.
We've outlined the prices you can expect to pay for each hanger type in this handy guide entitled How Much Are Wooden Hangers?
Darla DeMorrow, in conversation with Martha Stewart Living, offers a concise how-to for clothing storage:
“What to fold and what to hang depends on several factors, [including] how much space you have in your closets and dressers, what your personal habits are, what type of garments you own, [and] what types of fabrics they are made of,” she said.
Here’s a brief overview of what to fold and what to hang by garment:
What to Fold:
What to Hang:
Once you’ve decided what to hang, it’s essential to take particular care of certain clothing items. The best way to make sure your delicate or structured garments retain their shape is by hanging them on wooden hangers. Read on to learn why.
Wooden hangers, on the other hand, are designed with the structure of your garment in mind. Quality wooden hangers are designed specifically for different types of clothing, from coats and shirts to skirts and trousers.
Why is this important?
The garment needs to fit onto the hanger for several reasons. If it is a structured piece, find a hanger designed to mimic the shape of the person who will be wearing it. So, if a man wants to hang his suit jacket, the hanger should have a thick, flared side that mimics his shoulders.
At the same time, the hanger also needs to be sturdy enough that it won’t crack under the weight of heavy materials. It also should have other features, like cut-outs for straps, velvet wrapping to hold pants, and clasps for skirts.
What garments are in particular need of wooden hangers, rather than folding or hanging on a flimsy hanger?
It’s never a good idea to hang pants or skirts on plastic or wire hangers. These all-purpose hangers typically only have a felted trouser bar that you can use to fold your pants or skirt over. This way of hanging not only can crease more sophisticated fabrics, but it could also cause your garment to fall to the floor.
These hangers could also be too flimsy to hold heavier pant and skirt materials, like wool, and bend under pressure.
In contrast, you should look for a wooden hanger with either a felted trouser bar or clips. These skirt hangers will keep your garments in place without creasing them; you won’t have to worry about them falling to the floor either. The wooden hanger is also sturdy enough to hold even heavy fabrics.
Blouses and collared shirts will certainly wrinkle if you fold them. But plastic and wire hangers could create several problems. For one, these hangers are likely to put creases into dress shirts, as they end on either side with points. Even after ironing, wrinkles like these may not come out.
Hangers should also mimic the shape of the shoulders of the person wearing them. These lightweight shirt hangers do not do this, which, in turn, can make the fabric wilt permanently.
Instead, choose a wooden hanger with a thicker material that better imitates what the garment looks like on a person. That way, there are no creases, and tailored shirts will retain their original shape.
Problems that blouses and shirts have on plastic and wire clothing hangers are only worse for jackets and coats. These garments are even more tailored, but they are also heavier, meaning that they often crack plastic or bend metal.
The heavier the jacket, the thicker its coat hanger should be to maintain its shape. Suppose the rule of thumb is that clothing hangers should be the same shape as the person wearing them. In that case, structured jackets and coats require a heavy luxury suit hanger with thick, rounded edges.
Many dresses, shirts, and even pants come in flowy fabrics, like chiffon or crepe. These fabrics may seem light enough that they could do well on a flimsier hanger, but this isn’t the case. Instead, flowy fabrics, even linen, dent easily. The ends of these hangers could make a permanent crease in the shoulders of these materials that may never come out.
What’s more, make sure you invest in wooden hangers that have notches in them. Many flowy pieces may either have spaghetti straps or come with straps to hang lightweight dresses or similar.
It’s clear, then, that wooden hangers are the best choice for your special garments. After all, if you invest in high-quality pieces, you want them to become staple pieces in your wardrobe for years to come. Clever storage of your clothing can add years of life to your garments because they’ll be appropriately stored.
Quality wood hangers are an intelligent investment. While inferior options from a dry cleaner or big-box store might seem reasonable enough, they simply lack the durability and quality of wood hangers.
These wood hangers deliver unmatched durability, thanks to their sturdy construction that combines Grade A beech wood with brass metal fittings and hardware. As a result, these hangers can support garments of any weight, including suits and winter coats.
Thanks to their sturdy design, these wood hangers help your clothes retain their original shape. They drape correctly on well-structured hangers, which means your favorite garments are always ready to wear right out of the closet.
These hangers offer a smooth finish that won’t snag or damage your clothes. They’re sturdy enough to support garments of different sizes and weights. Despite being solid and rugged, these hangers are also sleek, with a thin profile that will allow you to fit many hangers in the closet.
There’s no question that luxury wooden hangers are the most durable style you can use in your closet. However, this durability does come with a cost. When you’re used to using the hangers you secure for free from your dry cleaner or purchasing plastic hangers in bulk at low prices, you might be put off by the cost of wooden hangers.
But, soon after you add luxury wooden hangers to your closet, you’ll realize the financial advantages of using them. These luxury suit hangers and shirt hangers are so durable that they will become a staple in your closet for years to come. Rather than spending money regularly on short-term, cheap options, make a single investment in a superior long-term option.
Even more, wooden hangers extend the life of your clothes, which can help you save money as well. Since these hangers allow your clothes—from shirts and suits to trousers and skirts—to drape well, they hold up well, giving you more wear out of your clothes. The result? You’ll need to replace clothes less frequently, which will save you money.
