Tie and scarf racks

A slide out tie or scarf rack is a great alternative to a typical hanger style tie rack. Fastened to the vertical side of a closet panel, these racks slide out to reveal ties or scarves.

Valet rods

Valet rods are small rods which can be pulled out from the edge of the closet. When recessed, only the tiny end if the rod is visible. Simply extend the rod to quickly hang your dry cleaning, or for setting out tomorrow’s outfit. Valet rods are one of those items that you never knew you needed, but once you have one you cannot imagine living without.
