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 you want your valet stand to be a piece of furniture in its own right, this could be the one for you.

​Featuring a very nice, traditional design ​​it's made from a combination of solid pine and MDF.

Measuring 47cm x 28cm x 117cm, ​it's not too deep to be placed against a wall and takes up very little room.

​At 117cm tall, i​t provides more height than the 110cm that many stands offer.

This is a well made design with some unique features. There is a nicely shaped hanging space at the top, with bars for hanging other garments.

The base consists of a drawer section that can be used for storing smaller items, and the top of which also acts as a shoe stand.

A downside with this butler stand is it cannot be collapsed for storage. As mentioned, the shape does allow it to stand against a wall and be out-of-the-way.

This particular design is available in white or mahogany, and could add a functional touch of class to your bedroom - providing the colours match.

Pros

  • ​Extra-Tall ​
  • Great Storage Options
  • ​Includes Shoe Case
  • 2 Fast Cycles
  • ​Traditional Wood Design

Cons

  • ​Some Assembly Required
  • Doesn't Fold

Our final choice is one that is a little different – in that it is thoroughly modern, very stylish, and also rather impressive.

​Measuring 46cm x 28cm by 110cm, this is an all-chrome finish model that is designed for hanging your chosen outfit for later use – nothing more and nothing less!

​It features ​a hanging area at the top, plus a rail for trousers, skirts or other garments.

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

We like the heavy base which gives adds stability to the stand, but at 4 kg, its light enough to pick up with one hand.

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.
