Velvet Hangers Make a World of Difference!

Organized Closet using Velvet Hangers

The key to an organized closet is “looking” organized.  You want your closet to have a continuous clean and clutter free look, just like your favorite store or boutique.  Last week I organized and edited my client’s master closet, he is a busy professional who wanted me to make the changes while he was at work, talk about trust!  I filled up 5 garbage bags with items that looked worn, out of date, or needed to be replaced, and organized them by type and color.

As I organized and sorted everything I installed matching velvet hangers, my favorite closet organizing tool.  His closet was filled with a mix of wire and plastic hangers making it look cluttered and sloppy, after my makeover it looks like a little piece of luxury.  My client was blown away with the difference it made in his closet, now he looks forward to getting dressed every day.  I hope you enjoy the before and afters!

  1. My husband passed away on Christmas Eve and one of the things I did fairly early on was to clean my closet. I too used the velvety hangers and color coordianted each area. The one place I still have trouble is the hanging for pants and skirts. Just don't love the clip hangers and haven't found a great replacement 🙂
    Enjoy your closet – mine is posted below: http://www.consideringitalljoy.com/2011/02/closet-talk.html

  2. Thanks for inspiring! I went and bought purple, green, and aqua velvet hangers at TJ Maxx for $9.99 and now my closet looks awesome! Awesome post! Great tip!!

  3. Don't know if you have a Walgreens near you, but I bought 50 of the black velvet hangers for $20! Gonna go back and try and buy some more. I'm slowly trying to redo our closets!

  4. Wow! This closet looks great! I'm off to buy black velvet hangers for my own closet. Of course I need to do the sorting as well. Thank you Amanda!

  5. What a transformation. Sadly my closet looks more like the before and I had been wanting wooden hangers (but whoa those are expensive). I'm inspired and am gonna have to keep my eye out for those velvet ones.

  6. These hangers BREAK so easily! I am pretty upset because I threw away all of my old plastic hangers and spent at least 150.00 on these slim lines. They are slowly breaking at the neck (where the metal connects to the plastic) Stay away from them!!!! ( or save your receipts! )

    1. Do you think they work for women’s smaller/lighter clothes and not so much men’s heavier clothes? That’s been my experience. How about everyone else?

  7. Organizing even a simple closet can surely make wonders to a storage space. Being part of the closets Bergen industry, we understand the feeling when clients appreciate the effort done for them. It's truly priceless.

  8. I noticed you took the dry cleaning off the wire hangers they come home in. How do you maintain this after look without expecting the client to switch out hangers every week they come home with dry cleaning? Also, those velvet hangers look nice and are great for strappy tops and dresses but are actually a nightmare to put polos and long sleeve shirts on.

    1. Thank you for your question! Yes, we swap out the dry cleaning hangers and after we work our magic out clients take time to maintain it by swapping the hangers as they come back from the cleaners. For men who wear a lot of dress shirts we will just keep the drycleaning hangers if that is what they prefer. For this client he didn’t mind taking the extra time to make the swap because it made his closet feel so much more organized. I’ve never had an issue using them with polos or long sleeves, sometimes you just have to put them on through the bottom of the shirt.
