Choosing the best hat organizer is largely a matter of personal preference. If you are more artistic or just like to show off your hat collection, you might choose a hat organizer that is open and can display your hats accordingly, most likely in the form of a rack-type display. If you want somewhere to store your hats, you should consider one that mounts on the wall or in a closet.
The most common type of hat organizer is probably a shelving system that goes over the door. They are usually made from metal, plastic, or sometimes wood, and usually have a latch that goes over the top of the door to keep it in place. These types of hat organizer will often let you space the hats out so as not to wrinkle or damage them. They can be used to display hats, but it’s best for the hats to keep them on the inside of a closet door to prevent the hats from being damaged by the door opening and closing. The advantage of these types of organizers is they are usually fairly inexpensive.
Another common type of hat organizer is the hat rack. Usually made of wood or metal, they often resemble a stand-alone coat rack and are built in a similar way, with one pole and several smaller poles extending out on which you can hang your hat. These types of organizers are more stylish, but usually more expensive. They are also more exposed to dust, pets, and possible accidents. The exposure to external factors may be worth it for some, as it will display the hats very openly.
If price is the sole consideration, there are very simple hat organizers that can fit in a closet and hang from the clothes rack. They are usually made of plastic or one metal strip. Plastic organizers hold the hats in a compartment, and the metal organizers hold hats in place with clips.
Another simple and usually inexpensive hat organizer is a wall rack. This simple type of organizer is usually wood or metal and resemble coat racks. They attach to the wall and have pins on them to hold the hats. Another variation on this is the standing organizer, which usually acts like a basket to hold the hats one on top of the other. This type works well for hats of a similar shape and size.
