You no longer have to rummage around in a wardrobe getting your things together for work or play.  They also help keep clothes off the floor and banisters (and ​buying this could be a big hint for the man in your life!) and add a touch of class to any bedroom.

We've taken a look at the best men's valet stands on the market in 2018.  ​In no particular order, here are our top 5.

Important Features To Look Out For

You might assume that all valet (a.k.a "Butler Stands") are all the same. However, there are considerable differences in design and build quality exist.

Put simply, you want something that's easy to put up, stay up and let you hang all the clothes you need on it.

Here are the features we took into consideration when making our selections and writing the reviews:

Size – you don’t want an occasional-use item to take up too much space; and the ones on our list are all compact so you won't keep bumping into them.

Style – traditional wood or modern metal? We’ve included ​designs in both to perfectly complement your bedroom.

Hanging Options – a hanging area with struts for shirts and other garments is a great feature. As is a shoe rack. Not all of stands have these.

Storage – ​​Valet stands offer different amount of storage. Some won't store your shoes, whilst others have handy spaces for cuff links, watches and spare change.

Assembly – some of our choices require self-assembly, and we use customer feedback to ascertain how fiddly they are to put together.

That’s our list of features to consider, not all that remains is for us to decide which one is best.

Men's Valet Stand Reviews

When considering the best valet stands of 2018, we kept in mind all the key features that we outlined above.

We're confident you'll find something on our list that fits with your budget and space.

This sturdy clothes stand is made from tropical Heava wood, which makes it very easy to clean.

The wood also has anti-fungal properties which protect your clothes.  It can be wiped clean with a soft cloth, so you can keep it usable all the time.

There is a  stainless steel hanger for belts and trousers, and a handy shelf for small items such as watches, cufflinks and loose change.

This one measures 102cm x 47cm x 31cm, which is ​reasonably tall. You can hang a 24" skirt on there and it just clears the ground.

​It's also pretty thin so it won’t take up too much space, and at just 2 kg it's easy to move out of the way.

We recommend standing it somewhere with adequate ventilation if you are hanging damp clothes. It is not collapsible, so bear that in mind.

This Premier Housewares Clothes Stand arrives partially assembled. You just need to screw two belts to secure the base to the frame.

If you're looking for a wooden valet stand that's easy to assemble, has a small footprint and provides good storage options, this is a great choice.

Pros

  • Made From Heva Wood
  • ​Anti-Fungal
  • Wipes Down Easily
  • Small Footprint
  • ​Lots of Storage Options
  • ​Easy To Assemble

Cons

  • Not the tallest
  • Doesn't Collapse

​Looking for a more modern valet stand? The "Ronald" from CLP fits the bill and comes in a choice of 5 colours to perfectly match your bedroom decor.

​It would look particularly great in a modern, sleek apartment, and the unusual styling makes it actually an attractive item as well as a practical one.

The stand is made from a combination of wood and metal, with the frame being made from durable metal that is finished in a brushed look.

​The frame includes a heavy metal ​base that will keep it upright even when fully loaded. It has a nicely shaped upper hanging section with a neat little shelf for your accessories, too.

This one is self-assembly, and cannot be quickly folded down like some of these can, yet it does look good and is very neat, ​measuring 43cm x 28cm x 109cm​ ​it won't take up too much real estate in your bedroom.

If wood is really not your thing and you'd prefer a valet stand that won't fall over in a strong breeze, the CP Morgan is a great choice.

Pros

  • ​Sturdy Metal Frame
  • ​Modern & Sleek ​Design
  • ​Choice of 5 Colours
  • Small Footprint

Cons

  • ​Doesn't Collapse
  • ​​Self-Assembly Required

​We thought we would include a second model from the CLP range to show you just how innovative this brand can be.

​This is another very modern design, stylish too and would not look out of place among contemporary furnishings.  

​Made entirely from metal with a wide base and curved feet, a lot of work has gone into making this as stable as can be.

​​The curved frame includes hanging areas for your shirts and jackets, plus additional areas for trousers and other garments.

​While there is no additional shelf for your accessories,​ this is one of the few valet stands that ​also has a shoe rack. Great for keeping all your gear together.

T​he Rufus measures 40cm x 35cm x 110cm, so there is enough space to hang plenty of garments, yet it will not take up too much room. Although it cannot be folded down for storage it can easily be stacked away without a problem

​The Rufus is available in white or black​. Some self-assembly is required though it's pretty straight forward.

If you value functionality above a more elegant (read: expensive) valet stand, this could be the one for you.

Pros

  • ​Sturdy Metal Design
  • ​Compact
  • ​Shoe Storage Rack
  • Available in White or Black
  • Affordable Price

Cons

  • ​Doesn't Fold
  • ​Some Assembly Required

If metal is not your thing, and you something like they'd used in Milan, this wood valet stand from Arredament Italia is just the ticket.

Made from beech wood throughout, this is both stylish and functional.

It's got not just one but THREE trouser holders, which is great to give a couple of pairs and airing after you get them back from the dry cleaners.

There's also a circular accessories holder for things like cufflinks and tie pins.

Apart from the design, another thing I really love is it can be wheeled out of the way. And the wheels are no scratch which is good for wood floors.

Measuring 44cm x 35m x 105cm, it's not too deep to be placed against a wall and takes up very little room.

A downside with this butler stand is it cannot be collapsed for storage.  At 105cm it's going to be great for keeping suits wrinkle free, but it can't double for dresses I'm afraid!

Pros

  • 3 trouser Rungs 
  • Accessories Holder
  • Made in Italy
  • Non-Scratch Wheels
  • ​Traditional Wood Design

Cons

  • Doesn't Fold

This last design is tidy, chic and perfect for small spaces.

Measuring 52cm x 28.5cm by 118.5cm, this is a chrome plated-metal design that's perfect for keeping shirts, jackets, trousers and ties in one place (and off the floor / bed!)

The important thing about this design is that it's got a pretty heavy base, so if you accidentally bump into it in the morning your clothes won't go flying (unless it's been a particularly good night out!).

The all-chrome design favours a modern bedroom or even a bathroom (which would prevent clothes getting crumpled after a long, tiring day).

The obvious drawbacks with this design is there aren't a great deal of storage options. However, if  you're looking for an inexpensive valet stand to hang trousers and a shirt - this is ideal.

Pros

  • ​All-Chrome Design
  • ​Sleek & Compact
  • ​Light Enough To Move
  • ​Hangs Jackets, Trousers & Shirts
  • Cheap Price

Cons

  • ​Lack of storage options
  • ​Not a traditional design

​The Best Valet Stand?

​It's hard to choose the best valet / butler stand on our list as much will depend on it's intended use and your bedroom decor.

However, if I had to choose just one in terms of cost and functionality, I'd have to go with t​he Premier Housewares ​Rubberwood Valet.

​I love the traditional style and that this particular design has a rack for belts and a shelf for smaller accessories, too.
