Make The Most Out Of A Small Space With TikTok’s Chic DIY Hanging Clothes Rack
For this clothes-rack hack, try to get a rope that’s reasonably thick and not bulky, in a stylish, natural material like twisted manila. You can get one by Kohand, with a ⅝-inch diameter and a length of 100 feet, on Amazon for $34. The thickness of the rod also matters for this space-saving DIY so it can match the rope just enough to prevent either of them from looking too oversized. An alternative to rope is leather suspension straps. You can get a set of two in different colors on Etsy. The price ranges from $40 to $70, depending on the length you choose.
When you’re ready for installation, think about where you want to have the rack. An ideal location will be a free side of your bedroom, against an empty wall like in the TikTok, where it’s easy to stand at and flip through your clothes. The ceiling area should also be clear so make sure there are no fixtures like lights or fans close.
To install, fix the hooks onto the ceiling, wrap the rope once around the rod, and tie it securely at the top. If you’re using straps, pass the rod through the straps. Do this, and your ceiling-mounted rack is ready for your clothes! Don’t overload the structure and keep the rack well-organized so it doesn’t make your small space feel messy.
