Garment Rack / August 15, 2018 / Eila Paasio.
Garment racks are a fixture in retail stores worldwide. But not all retailers realize the close relationship between their garment rack layout and the personality and feel of the store. Everything each customer sees and experiences within the store contributes to the overall impression she will carry with her and will certainly influence her likelihood of returning. So the positioning of garment racks and your ability to use them effectively are very important in successful store management. The usage and layout of garment racks within your store speaks volumes to your customers and contributes to their overall experience as a shopper.
They are typically less durable for the home than they are for retail outlets because the expectation is that they will be holding less clothes and will be used less. A clothes rack for the home are easy to install and are usually sold with all the necessary mounting hardware. There are some models that are free standing and have wheels for easy transport from place to place in the room. A clothes rack is one of those items that no one really gives any thought to but they are also one of those items that it is hard to picture being without. How many times have you found that after youve washed your clothes that you have run out of space to hang them up to dry? Almost everyone has come across this problem and if youre cramped for spec its even worse.
They may also be designed to be foldable so that you can easily transport the entire thing from your home to the store inside your car. Rails can be found in a plenitude of styles. Your clothes come either in circular designs or boxed enclosures for protection from dust and soiling. Some shelving types are horizontal which adds for both hanging space and shelving for clothing. Where can they be used? Clothes rails can be used anywhere. Clothing rails can not only be used for your entire wardrobe; they can be used to showcase clothing at your business too. To help cut costs on utility bills you can also use the rails outside to air dry your clothes.
That being the case retailers need to put more thought into how clothing is displayed and what the collective projected personality of the store is as a result. Store owners should consider mixing a variety of racks into their store design but cautions against having too much variation in materials or appearance. In other words a square rack used for displaying shirts could work fine near a circular necktie rack. However they should carry the same appearance as far as color and materials are concerned. It is also important to think about your clothing racks beyond aesthetics. Consider the space you have to work with and mix and match racks that will allow you to do the most good within that space.
