Ikea Rigga Clothes Rack
Advantages: A good, cheap why of storing clothes etc.
Disadvantages: Does need tightening from time to time
I bought my Ikea clothes rack around 10 years ago when I was a student living in halls of residence. I needed more space to keep my stuff went to Ikea and decided this was the best option. Although technically it seems to be for hanging clothes I bought the material shelves to hang from it do I kept jumpers etc. in these shelves as well as paperwork and general stuff.
I have two hanging shelves for my Ikea rack, I kept one at each side of the clothes hanging pole and in the middle between them I hung things like jackets and coats. This whole contraption was extremely useful as was a cheap solution to having little storage space.
The rack came boxed up and although a little cumbersome I managed to get it home on the tube and then the bus! As with all Ikea stuff it was flat packed and needed assembling, luckily I am quite good at this so it wouldn't have taken me very long and I don't remember it being that difficult either.
The rack is made out of metal poles, with four plastic casters so it can be wheeled around and two plastic joints on the top of the two poles sticking up from the bottom section which enable you to change the height of the clothes hanging pole. There are double poles running along on the bottom of the farm, which means that they can act as a shoe rack, or a place to stack boxes, which is useful.
The rack is quite sturdy although it does need tightening from time to time so keep the alum keys! Usually it is fairly obviously that the rack needs tightening as you can see that the rack is lopsided, leaning to one side. The clothes rail will take a lot of weight conspiring how much stuff, including paperwork I had hanging in my shelves from the rail.
This was a super handy rack which I couldn't have done without in my university room. Since then my father has adapted this rack to go into one of our cupboards at home, he has made it less wide and now I just us it for hanging dresses. All in all this has proved a very good rack.
Summary: A cheap storage solution.
