Amish quilt racks are beautiful drying solutions for living rooms and bedrooms

by Tom Grimes

Quilts and heavy linens are often difficult to dry along with the rest of clothes. If one doesn't want to run them through the machine a number of times, then it's generally necessary to hang them on a stair railing or on the porch.

This is far from the optimal solution, because it can provide an unpleasant addition to any part of the home. Homeowners who are looking for an effective way to let quilts dry while simultaneously adding a little bit of rustic charm to a home may want to instead invest in pieces of Amish furniture such as Amish quilt racks.

These simple and elegant items provide enough space for one to hang multiple linens and leave them to dry in a neat and organized way. They are also terrific storage solutions for living rooms, because quilt racks can show off the colorful and unique patterns of each comforter.

For living rooms that may have a number of blankets, a quilt rack can clear up the clutter quickly - so that if only one person is on the couch, the other linens can be hung up but not crumpled and stowed away.

Households with pets may find this to be a practical addition as well, because hanging an unused quilt on the rack will prevent animals from sleeping and shedding on them.
