With a rise in small-space living adequate closet space can be hard to come by. And even if you do have closets, one flimsy hanging bar might not meet your needs. Clothing racks are a great solution for renters and owners alike. They can be used well beyond closets in mudrooms, storage units, and for impromptu tie-dye parties. While racks made with brass or reclaimed wood can soar well into the hundreds of dollars, a durable clothing rack with thoughtful design doesn't need to cost more than $100.
