Looking for the best wardrobe room essentials? These genius items are exactly what you need to upgrade the aesthetic and function of your wardrobe room!
If you’re lucky enough to have an entire room or walk-in closet for your clothing, you’ll want to ensure that space looks good with the most perfect wardrobe room essentials.
The best wardrobe room essentials are intelligent items that work double-duty for you because they’re both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Some of these items help organize your clothing and accessories, while other items improve the way you interact with your wardrobe.
You won’t regret owning any of these smart wardrobe room items. In fact, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them.
This post is about wardrobe room essentials.
Best Wardrobe Room Essentials
1. Retractable Valet Rod
A sturdy valet rod is a perfect accessory to showcase an outfit you’re planning to wear.
A valet rod is also great if you need to pull out a few items to try on or just need a quick place to hang something temporarily. Say goodbye to the mess on your bed or chair (or floor!) and hang the items in their original places later.
I love to decide on my outfit the night before and have it hanging separately in my walk-in closet, so it’s ready to go, belt and scarf included. The less I have to think about in the morning, the better.
The Rev-A-Shelf Extendable Designer Closet Valet Rod is a sleek retractable valet rod that comes in three metal finishes and its designer look adds to the character of any wardrobe room essentials.
Or go for this heavy-duty valet rod (pictured below) that can hold up to 30 lbs!
2. Wardrobe Room Ideas: Hanger Organizer
If you have an endless supply of hangers just ‘hanging around’ (hehe) then you need to add a hanger organizer to your list of wardrobe room essentials. A hanger stacker frees up space on your closet racks while also organizing loose hangers, so they’re easy to grab when you need one.
Does anyone else get mildly annoyed when you try to grab a free hanger and it’s stuck to one (or three) others? I mean, uuuuugh.
This hanger storage organizer (pictured below) is lightweight, stores all types of hangers, and can be stowed away when not in use. The easy carry handles make it portable down to the laundry room and around the house.
Now, if you own a lot of wooden hangers as mentioned in another recent post, you may want something sturdier like a hanger rack. The mahogany rack from NAHANCO will look gorgeous in any spacious wardrobe room or even laundry room. It’s portable as well.
3. Heavy Duty Garment Steamer
If you have space for a wardrobe room, you may also have space for a legitimate garment steamer.
These handy machines are starting to take precedence over ironing in many cases. Not only do they remove creases from clothing, but their powerful steam flow also refreshes the life of the fabric, thus extending the time between washes. Hot steam also has the ability to remove smells and kill bacteria.
The Cumulus Home Steamer from Steamery is just the steamer for the job. I always recommend a good steaming of your clothing before leaving the house to ensure you look your absolute best.

4. Add A Leather Hole Punch To Your Wardrobe Essentials List
If you wear belts (or have growing children) then you probably know the headache of one not fitting properly due to a lack of belt holes. Whether you buy a lot of vintage or sometimes forget that belts have sizes too (I’m guilty there!), it’s never a good idea to use a knife or screwdriver to punch a hole through it. I’m guilty twice, now.
Sure, there are plenty of leather hole punchers out there, but they’re awkward in shape, ugly, and belong in the tool chest all the way in your basement or garage rather than with your wardrobe room essentials.
This simple Japanese hole punch is exactly what you need instead. It’s a workhorse tool used in all types of craft-making and materials. This tool will also punch holes in your handbag straps if you need to make them shorter or longer! The holes come out clean and even. The original brand (shared below) has the best quality and the blades are sharp, which you’ll need to handle the thickness of belts.
You can also purchase smaller blades for making smaller holes. Hallelujah for skinny-belt wearers! Purchase replacement screw punch bits from Atelier Chikalto.
5. Drawer Organizer Dividers
A tidy wardrobe room on the outside is one thing, but life is so much better when your drawers are also organized. Enter these handy drawer organizer dividers to help sort your underwear, socks, ties, scarves, and other small items. There’s not much to these dividers, but they’re breathable and best-selling wardrobe room essentials.
If you’re trying to downsize your sock collection or underwear drawer, these will also help you out because you only get so many pockets.
6. Basic Closet Essentials: Boot Hooks
Boot hooks are basically the older sibling of the shoe horn. They assist you with putting on medium-to-tall boots with loops on the boot shaft. Yes, that’s actually what those loops are primarily for; embellishment is secondary). They’re inserted into the loops at the top of the boot shaft and you pull the handles to slide the boot onto your foot. Genius.
If you have a high instep, this is going to be one of your favorite wardrobe room essentials.
I discovered these wonderful tools when they came with a pair of authentic riding boots I purchased from a secondhand store. As a heavy boot wearer, my quality of life instantly improved once I began using these boot hooks.
7. Cedar Wood Blocks And Sachets
The right ambiance is important in your home and that includes the space you’ve dedicated to storing your beloved clothing and accessories. Scent plays a significant part in the ambiance of a home and cedar wood blocks are the best wardrobe room essentials to keep your enclosed spaces fresh.
Cedar wood is a natural air freshener and bug repellent when used in closed spaces. Cedar also draws moisture out of the air, so it’s great if you live in a humid climate or like to have windows open. Keep your clothing fresh-smelling and properly cared for by placing cedar blocks or sachets in closets, cabinets, drawers, shoes, and bags. Easily revive the amazing properties of cedar by sanding it down.
This cedar wood set below has the perfect mix of hangers, balls, blocks, and sachets to meet your needs!
