    I'm sure there is a bunch of different opinions on this subject, however i'm enlarging my closet and I'd like some ideas.

    I`ve been using a few of these for over 10 years (from Sharper Image)

    I roll them up and store them inside a large flat box, with padding on the bottom, and some of those lightweight 'air bags' used for shipping on top.

    Since I moved in my new apartment, most of them are rolled up and stashed into a pillow case somewhere... Can't be bothered to sort them all again, I'll go dig up the one I need when I need it [​IMG]

    How many does the motorised rack hold?

    I've got several racks that I use. Nothing fancy.

    I do the same on a drawer, don't use the padding... they took space on the closet and were allways in my way

    i switched to rolling my ties as well and storing them in the shallow drawers of my dresser

    i find that it works better than hanging them and you can pull out your drawers and see all your ties at once and pick what you want

    I hang mine on suit/coat hangers.

    Today they are all over my dresser but soon they'll be on a shirt hangar. Will buy a real rack when I get a few more

    This x 2. Takes up very little space.

    I hang them on a rack except for the knits which I roll and keep in a drawer.

    I have two of these and think it does the best job in the least amount of space. I prefer the ties be spaced on the rack rather than laying on top of each other like in the tie-shaped one. Also, it's made of cedar and holds 40 ties. I can think of better more elegant alternatives but they would require more space than I have available.

    I also use the Woodlore 40-tie racks. I have two. The second is a little over halfway full. I may need to do a bit of judicious culling before I fill it completely. I find them very satisfactory.

    I roll my ties up, laying each one on its side, on the bottom shelf of my armoire.
