Expanding, Space-Saving Closet Solution for Tiny Homes and Other Spaces


In a tiny house, using every inch of space is of utmost importance. That’s why the closet!BOOM! system is such a great way to organize your hanging clothing in a compact area. This innovative closet rod allows you to hang clothing on special thin hangers and then push the whole arm flat against the wall.

The company sells the “naked” rods, or you can also purchase thin wardrobes in a number of sizes to hide the clothing. The rods and wardrobes come in a number of styles and finishes to fit any decor. If you have a larger side table, you can even stagger the rods to get up to 3x the storage space. What do you think?

    This! Sheer genius. Sheer brilliance. Wonder why it hasn’t been thought of before. Takes up so little room. Thanks goes to James D. for this little gem.

      Oh, it’s been thought of before. There’s actually a wide range of products like this that either slide out or fold. Just always been a niche market except for countries like Japan where such options are more mainstream. You can do a search on folding/swinging hanger rods or folding valet bars to see some examples.

      This is nicer than most of them, though, and they offer a range of options that can fit different spaces and can be worked into furniture. Like one demonstration showed a night stand cabinet with up to three of them to pack a lot of hanging cloths into a very tiny space, even with the much shorter hanger arms, and they’re a more widely available product.

      Most others who sell this type of product typically don’t provide many options and can be much harder to find. Along with possibly having other issues like only working with specific type of cloths and hangers, having strict weight limits, may only be intended for temporary usages like hanging over a door, etc.

      Some can also be fairly expensive, like from Germany, there’s a Maplewood Foldable Wardrobe, which has maple with anodized aluminum hooks and last I checked was €264 ($335.75 USD) at Manufactum.

      While you could also modify this with a slider. So you can also use it in a deep and narrow space you normally may not be able to reach easily and just pull it out and fold it to display the cloths but store it out of the way in spaces you may otherwise not use. Making it a very versatile product.

      Anyway, it’s possibly a sign that the tiny house market is starting to make products like this more likely to be marketed to a wider range of people and places, with more options and quality choices.

      Mind, some can also find other uses like you can use similar sliders and folding options for storing cookware or anything you can put on a hook, like mugs, cups, etc…

    That’s a great idea especially for tiny homes with their limited space.
    James is right that they are others. I know the pull out to the front ones which are around for decades but can’t accommodate the amount of hangers especially of the 30 model shown here.
    However, I am a bit concerned about the weight of clothes hanged there. I think the turning mechanism needs to be very strong to keep up weight and daily use.

      They’ve beefed up the hinges since the early prototypes, it’s a product they’ve been developing over a couple of years and it’s a family start up business. So they had to do a lot of their own R&D, which is still shown in most of their videos and photos, but it looks like they’ve done a good job with the final production models. We just have to wait until there’s some real world reviews to be sure…

        James, thanks for the background information. Let’s wait for upcoming reviews.
