You may have been too busy to notice but there has been a trend of late away from traditional wardrobes towards less bulky and versatile wooden clothes rails.
Why? Well, more of us are living in smaller spaces and, also, often renting on insecure terms so it makes sense that people are less keen on buying bulky and expensive bedroom furniture that’s going to be difficult to move.
Another benefit of these kinds of hanging rails is they can make a room look a lot more spacious. Some can also be folded away when not in use which makes them ideal as a temporary solution for the occasional guest, or if you think you may be moving in the near to medium future.
