Hang Clothes In Your Armoire
There are several tips to hang clothes in your armoire. Here are some of them. Check that the armoire is deep enough to accommodate hanging clothing on a rod. It needs to be at least 24 inches deep with the doors closed to use standard hangers. If the armoire is right on the cusp of this, hang your bulkiest item on a standard hanger and slide this into the armoire after you remove the shelves to see if it fits comfortably. If it doesn’t, you’ll need to try space saving hangers, which can work in 18-to-24-inch spaces. Install a clothing rod near the top of the armoire or underneath the uppermost shelf. Tension rods are ideal, as they don’t require any holes or permanent alterations to the piece. If you plan to permanently convert the armoire to a hanging unit, install a traditional clothing rod typically used in a closet. To maintain the integrity of antique or high end pieces, opt for a clothing rod that fits the overall style of the furniture.
Install hooks along the perimeter of the armoire if it isn’t deep enough for a clothing rod, though they will not hold as many garments. Keep the vertical hanging requirements of the clothing you’ll store in the armoire in mind when choosing the height for the hooks. Hooks can also be used in addition to a clothing rod. To maximize space and to make room for longer pieces that aren’t worn that often, like winter coats, install hooks along the back of the armoire behind the rods. Clothing can be hung on hangers, and the hangers placed on the hooks to both help garments keep their shape and to increase the number of items a hook can store.
