How to Store and Organize Ties and Scarves in your Closet

ScarfRackTie and scarf organization in a home wardrobe or walk-in closet can be achieved with easy to install tie racks and scarf racks or with tie hangers. It’s no secret that a dresser drawer, storage bin, or the floor will inevitably become the storage location for your ties and scarves. Hanging them on a standard nylon clothes hanger or cedar clothes hanger will at some point result in their falling to the floor to be stepped on when you’re getting dressed and left for days when you feel lazy and don’t want to pick them up. With your ties and scarves tucked away in a drawer, you’ll have to dig around to find your favorite accessory or will always grab whatever is lying on the top of the pile leaving the rest of your collection to languish. Why not display your assortment of ties and scarves and make them easily accessible with a tie rack or scarf rack? Tie Racks and Scarf Racks can be screwed to an interior wall of your wardrobe or walk-in closet and can slide out for easy access. Tie Racks and Scarf Racks securely hold your neck accessories in place without worrying about them falling to the floor.

If you have a small closet where a wall mounted Tie Rack is not a feasible option, you can also take advantage of a Tie Hanger. Tie Hangers are similar to cedar clothes hangers with the exception that there are pegs mounted to a triangular piece of cedar wood. This will allow you to hang the Tie Hanger on your closet rod and still have your ties readily accessible. Although it is called a Tie Hanger, it would also be beneficial for hanging scarves or even jewelry such as necklaces and bracelets. The cedar wood used for the Tie Hanger doubles as a pest repellent for your clothes while also imparting a pleasing scent to your closet and your accessories.

How to Choose A Power/Data Station

InterfaceIITTBrushedAluminumOpenHow to choose a power/data station is much simpler than it appears at first glance, but you must be prepared beforehand to streamline the process. When some people are tasked with choosing a power/data station for their organization, their fear is palpable; especially when they have little to no experience with electrical products. Choosing a power/data station is a lot easier than it appears when you work one step at a time. It’s really not unlike buying a sofa for your home. You’re not expected to know about sofa construction or have experience building sofas. If that were the case, many of us would be sitting on our floors at home. You look at different models, take measurements, choose a fabric, and choose a color that will fit best in your home. Let’s translate that to how to choose a power/data station.

The very first thing you should determine is how many power outlets you need in the power/data station. Power/data stations come with either 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, or 12 power outlets. Narrowing down how many power outlets you will need in a power/data station will often limit your options sufficiently making your choice even easier. After you have determined the number of power outlets, you need to figure out if you need data connectors in the power/data station, what connectors are needed, and the quantity. RJ-11 telephone connectors, RJ-45 ethernet connectors, HDMI connectors, HD VGA connectors, USB connectors, and everything in between are available to choose from. Some units are restricted in how many connectors and what connectors they can hold. This will further narrow your options and ease choosing a power/data station.

Now you’ve chosen the number of power outlets and the data connectors that you want in the power/data station. If this has not sufficiently winnowed your list of options, let’s move on to how you would like the power/data station to be installed. Power/data stations are available as pop-up units, surface mounted units that screw to the surface or underside of your table top, undermount units that are accessed through an open hole in the table top, box units that install in a cut out in your table top with a lid to conceal your cables, or troughs that also install in a cut out in your table top but utilize recessed doors that stay open for access to your power outlets and connectors. We save the fun part for last and that’s the finish. You can choose a power/data station in black, silver pearl, brushed aluminum, or brushed stainless steel depending on the aesthetic you’re going for in your conference room or office.

This is just one way of choosing your power/data station. For some, the finish may be the most important option while others couldn’t care less about power outlets, but want to make sure they can get the data connectors they need. The main focus is to take your power/data station shopping one step at a time. You don’t have to be an electrician to choose a power/data station. Remember the process can be as easy (or as hard) as you make it; so make the process easy people.
