They can also be an attractive solution to rooms with no closets and be a useful tool for laundry rooms. When planning a closet space or storage area, be aware that clothes racks and portable closets are affordable and can be put together with virtually no tools.

Metal tubing systems, usually with wheels attached to the base, form the frame of most portable closets. They are available in white and titanium finishes but could be easily restyled with colored spray paint to add to your decor.

Some portable systems have a canvas outer shell that protects clothing hanging on racks. These are terrific for storing seasonal items and are great for school plays, benefit events and other special occasions when lots of clothes will need to stay safe, accessible and unwrinkled. They break down and can be easily stored when not needed as well.


Wire shelving racks and organization systems are the framework for many portable closet systems and, with wheels and fabric covers, are durable enough to become functional storage in your household.

Cloth or canvas covered systems use a variety of closures. It is important to choose the system and closure method that best suits your needs. If children need access to the contents, a velcro closure or a zipper with oversized teeth is more functional than one with small pulls or complicated snaps or buttons.

Portable closet systems, portable wardrobes and clothes racks are available in a wide variety of styles and qualities. They can offer attractive and practical solutions to rooms that don't have closets, are perfect for college students and can be taken apart and stored conveniently when not needed.
