Ideas for a Corner Clothes Hanger

Rooms without adequate closet space pose a tricky problem for homeowners. A free-standing rack juts out into the room, takes up a lot of space and doesn't add much to the decor A wardrobe with a hanging rod is a heavy piece of furniture, and may be prohibitively expensive. Wardrobes are also often rather short, and don't offer enough space for longer items like dresses and long jackets. Corner clothes hangers make convenient solutions, tucked neatly into an otherwise unused space.

Hanging Rods

Install a hanging rod in your corner for a simple clothes hanger solution. Use a premade hanger dowel from a hardware store for easy installation or find a rod you like and install it yourself, with brackets. Installing a corner rod with brackets is difficult without the proper tools and woodcutting supplies, so if you do not have the right tools, a predrilled dowel will work best. Some models of corner hanger dowels have a pressure hanging mechanism for easy installation. Simply place the rod where you want it and rotate the sides opposite each other to tighten.

Garment Racks on Wheels

Purchase a costume shop rolling closet and set it up in your corner for a mobile and construction-free hanger. A rolling closet features rods on a frame with wheels. It comes with assembly instructions and an adjustable width to fit in any space. There are even triangular models available, specifically for corners. Rolling closets are convenient, but not especially attractive. More high-end models are available in wood that add some old-world theatre charm to any room. Most garment racks are collapsible for easy storage.


If you are looking for a more attractive or low-profile solution, create a cover for your corner hanger set-up with heavy curtains. Set up a curtain rod from one side of the corner to the other in front of your rack. Hang heavy drapes tied back with sashes, or let them hang long to create a do-it-yourself corner closet.
