We’ve talked about how to store your shoes to extend their life, but what do you do if your untidy hat collection makes you want to pull out your hair? These handy hat storage tips are a good place to start!

How to Store Hats with Style

Putting things away doesn’t mean they have to be out of sight, right? Maybe you have one or two really nice hats that only get used when you’re in your Sunday best. Or maybe you have an impressive collection of caps from your hometown team. Why not show them off with a wall display! It can be as simple as hanging a picture on the wall with the use of some nails or adhesive-backed hooks. Or, if you don’t want them directly on the walls, you could use a corkboard. A decorative coat rack can be another stylish piece to display your favorite head coverings while keeping them out of the way. These are just a few of the ways you can turn your hat collection into a conversation starter.

Storing Hats Out of Sight

If you would rather keep your hats in the closet until they’re part of your outfit, we have some ideas for you, too. The wall display might work in the closet. If your closet walls have some spare headroom, you can line the perimeter with hooks or nails for hat storage up high. For those of you with a variety of visors, caps, and other decorative headdress with adjustable bands, a coat hanger and some shower curtain rings can hold quite a few pieces. An over-the-door shoe organizer could be repurposed into hat storage for less bulky items like caps and winter hats. It’s not bad for gloves and mittens either if you want to make it more of a seasonal accessory organizer. When protecting the shape and more fragile elements of your dressier bowlers and bonnets is a concern, you will probably want to store those in a hatbox. Some nicer-looking hatboxes could work as home decor or in closet storage, so stack for style or space as you please!

Climate-Controlled Storage for Hats and Other Sensitive Items

Whether you’re storing hats in your home or in a self-storage unit, you will want to make sure the space is protected against extreme temperature and humidity. Don’t leave your prized headgear to fend for itself against the elements.
