Portable Closet Tips
Portable closets are handy things to have around the house. They are usually not elegant enough to be placed next to your everyday furniture so the best places for portable closets are usually the attic, basement, laundry room or maybe even the garage.
The nice thing about having a portable closet is that it can instantly add new storage space. There is no need to have carpenters build anything and there is no need to haul heavy materials either. All it takes is a short trip down to the local hardware store, browse for the color and size preferred and some simple assembly at home.
Portable closets almost always come with zippered flap doors. It is important that you choose one with a good set of zippers to avoid jammed zippers during usage. Test the zippers on the portable closet of your choice before buying it. If the store can provide it, then you might want to ask for some load to be stored in the portable closet while testing the zippers. This is because some portable closets have unsupported canvas bottoms that will cause the entire portable closet structure to sag when fully loaded. Depending on how much weight is in the portable closet, zipping could become a challenge especially with portable closets that have a ‘T’ zippers arrangement.
To avoid having to struggle with the zippers on a sagging portable closet, choose one that has support at the bottom. Another option is to purchase a portable with a different zipper configuration. There are portable closets that have a zipper arrangement like a ‘D’ on the side. While this could make zipping a fully loaded portable closet a little easier, I would still recommend having some kind of support at the bottom as I believe that heavy load will still pose a challenge when the zipper has to close the top part of the closet.
If you already own a portable closet with no support at the bottom, a durable box could be a good way to add the needed support. A set of plastic drawers set at the bottom of your portable closet could even complement the storage space.
Lastly, be sure to choose a portable closet with good strong material covering. Plastic covering are okay if you only plan to store soft things (e.g. pillows, blankets, etc…). However, I would recommend a portable closet with good canvas coverings for multi-purpose storage.
