Do you really need a wardrobe? - alternative hanging spaces

Often big and bulky there's little doubt that wardrobes take up a lot of space. You could have fitted wardrobes, but they can be very expensive and you have to leave them in-situ when you move home. If you don't want a conventional style of wardrobe either because you don't have the space or the budget there's plenty of alternative hanging spaces to choose from. A small branch painted white, suspended from chains makes a great place to hang your clothes.
