Winter is not just a cold but also a very wet season. Either rain, then snow, then groats … And we come home in wet down jackets and jackets, which, of course, cannot be hung in a closed wardrobe in this form – you will dilute the dampness in the house, and the clothes themselves will not really dry out. Let’s see how to solve this problem..
The easiest option is to leave your wet outerwear in the hallway on an open hanger, not behind the doors. At the same time, there should be enough space so that the jackets do not hang on top of each other, air circulates between them. In this form, the clothes will dry quickly enough in a well-heated room. An excellent way out is a rail instead of the usual wall or floor hanger in the hallway. There is enough space on the rail to place hangers with outer clothing that will not come into contact.
Instead of a rail or conventional hooks in the hallway, you can place a foldable clothes dryer, I wrote about such options. If there is no wet outerwear yet, the dryer folds up and becomes almost invisible.
The third idea
A wardrobe without doors. Wet clothes do not end up in a closed space, they dry in the air. It is convenient if such an open cabinet is divided into separate sections. Then the children’s wet jacket will not be next to the elegant coat of the mistress of the house..
The fourth idea
It is very problematic to dry large upper things on a conventional radiator. It is better to use additional heating devices. For example, hang a convector next to an open cabinet, which will supply warm air and significantly speed up the drying process. Or install an oil heater. According to experts, a designer heated towel rail will be a good solution. Yes, this is an unusual thing for the hallway, but there are very decorative electric heated towel rails that will allow you to quickly and conveniently dry large items.
Drying cabinet. Plus weight – the presence of a built-in drying system, which allows you to quickly cope with a large amount of wet clothes and shoes. Not surprisingly, drying ovens are common in ski resort hotels and manufacturing plants. Among the disadvantages is the high price – from 25 to 55 thousand rubles. In addition, even a small drying cabinet takes up as much space as a regular refrigerator; it will be difficult to install in a standard hallway. And you have to mask – the closet itself is unsightly. In addition, the drying cabinet needs its own source of electricity..
