Hung Up On HangersApril 27, 2021
This is the point where you should ask yourself: is there really anything about hangers that is worth devoting an entire article to it? This is, of course, a valid question. Is there really anything worth putting in print? These are hangers, after all. They hold clothes off the floor. They are angular and they generally have a hook on top. That’s pretty much it. Isn’t it?
One might be surprised to learn, then, that there are actually quite a lot of hangers available to the Average Hanger-buying Joe. Sure, it has to be said that hangers are nothing more than devices for holding currently unemployed clothes, but not all hangers are created equal.
This is not an invitation to become obsessive over the style of hangers you use to hang your stylish clothes, but it is an attempt to show that there are more options than the flimsy plastic things you can pick up at the dollar store. And you may find that many of these still have a comparable price.
For example, if you are tired of the same old thing, some nice wooden hangers can add a touch of elegance to your closet. And that’s just the first decision you have to make. What kind of wood do you want? Cedar? Walnut? Maybe you want something a little more environmental, in which case bamboo hangers are the way to go.
On the other hand, you might prefer the look of shiny chrome on your hangers. You can get metal hangers in a range of shapes and sizes, some of them with a special coating that will hold onto your clothes even better. Of course, the chrome may look nice, but you have to remember that the skinnier metal hangers may not hold as much weight as their wooden counterparts.
You may also consider some of the specialized hangers on the market. These can range from some crazy shapes and colors, to that weird looking hanger that can hold three pairs of slacks in a neat order and a confined space. These are convenient space savers that can really change your closet.
Plastic hangers seem to be the choice of a penny-saving generation, and that’s not always a good thing. If you run a clothing boutique, it’s probably almost a requirement. These come in all shapes and sizes, whether you are looking for children’s hangers or special “shaper” hangers, these are cheap and easy to buy in large quantities.
Has it been unequivocally proven that hangers are an amazing invention that can serve more functions than previously imagined? Probably not. If, however, you’d like to add a little character to your closet, you do have some options available to you.
