Whether your guests are only staying for a day or for a month, chances are they will need something to hang some of their clothes with. There are different clothes hanger types available out in the market, but you do not necessarily need to purchase all that one person can possibly need. They come in different styles, materials, and size. The best guide that is recommended is to simply stick to the basics, but still highly presentable.
This is the most common type of hanger that is a must-have in a short-term rental accommodation. It is mainly used for shirts and light dresses. They are usually made up of plastic material but are also available in metal wire form and wooden form. Plastic hangers are alright, as long as you choose good quality ones, that is they should not be flimsy.
The best type of hanger for shirts to go with is probably the wooden ones. They look very presentable and not prone to bending and misshaping. They are offered in bare wood look and in painted form.
Wire hangers are not advisable. They are susceptible to deformation and generally cannot carry a lot of weight. They also do not look as nice in the wardrobe.
Pants and Skirt Hangers
This type of hangers comes in two common styles. The first one utilizes clamps and the second one is a modified version of a shirt hanger that can hold heavier and multiple clothes at the same time.
Clamp hangers come with a clamp on each side of the hanger. You simply use the clamps to fasten and secure the clothing. The risk of having pinch marks on the clothes is reduced when the clamps are covered in rubber or soft plastic material.
The multi-layer hangers are very convenient to use. You only need one and it can hold multiple clothing articles at once. They are usually made up of strong metal.
Padded Dress Hangers
For people who travel to specifically attend events that call for wearing long gowns, dresses or a full on suit, such as weddings and other formal gatherings, they absolutely need a good hanger to use specifically for their delicate clothing. This is where padded dress hangers come into play.
Padded hangers are simply shirt hangers but just bulkier. The bulk comes from the padding, usually foam covered in velvet material, wrapped around the body of the hanger itself. This padding helps protect the clothes strap or shoulder from deforming and from pressure.
Coat hangers are much wider on the shoulder sides than the ordinary shirt hangers. They are meant to hold the shape of the shoulder part of the clothes, particularly of suits. Business travelers and formal event attendees could definitely benefit from having these available.
Not all types of clothing need hanging. Some of them just need to be folded and kept inside the wardrobe drawers or shelves. The examples of which are t-shirts and undergarments.
At least one chest of drawers is a must in an Airbnb rental accommodation. However, if space does not permit it or you have a limited budget, a cheaper alternative that will provide the same functionality as long as you have a hanging wardrobe is to use a hanging clothes shelf organizer.
A shelf organizer is made up of fabric material and comes with a velcro system at the top that you can undo and then attach to the wardrobe rails. They can hold a lot of weight, meaning a lot of clothes too. This will surely make your guests feel that there is a lot of storage available.
There you have it, the different clothes hanger types and their uses. Ideally, you need to provide five shirt hangers, two trouser hangers or one multi-layer hanger, one padded hanger, and one coat hanger per guest. But it is totally up to you.
