If you're living in a space with a teeny tiny closet (or no closet at all), that's no reason to fret. A freestanding wardrobe or clothing rack can provide a home for all your things, no remodeling required. Here are 10 of our favorites.


The rail at the bottom means this rack can hold extra pairs of shoes... and it's hard to beat the price. Make sure to pick up some of IKEA's handy hanging solutions and shoe containers.

Can be paired with hanging organizers to store shoes, bags, and folded clothes.

The sides of this rack expand to provide extra storage.

We really like the sleek look of this garment rack from Target. A lacquered wood base is great for shoes, bags, etc. and heavy-duty casters (two which lock to ensure it'll stay put when you need it to) make it easy to move about your home.


The shelves above and below, and hooks on the side, make this one particularly versatile.

Should you need just a little extra space (say, for seasonal items like bulky coats), this slender clothing rack by Yamazaki is a wonderful option (and highly rated).

If you love Normann Copenhagen's Toj rack, here's a similar style at a much smaller price.

This HEMNES open wardrobe feels like a mini closet with its built-in shelves, perfect for jeans, T-shirts, sweaters and the like.


A simple yet striking design makes this West Elm garment rack almost sculptural. And at 42" wide, you'll have plenty of hanging space to boot.

Beautiful detailing — both practical and elegant.

A little pricey, but definitely something you won't mind looking at every day. The shelf on the bottom is great for shoes. Also comes in a small size for $303.
