A floordrobe is A form of storage for clothing which requires no hangers, drawers, doors or effort. Simply drop on the floor and you have a floordrobe.
I have a lot of experience with this technique, so I am very confident to share some expert advice. My family has a rich tradition of storing clothing in a floordrobe, I am marrying a floordrobe expert and personally I have used a floordrobe for a number of years.
One of the earliest memories I have of Lord Daa Doo was his amazing bedroom!! He had the most brilliant floordrobe! Lord Daa Doo utilised the floordrobe to perfection. He had a chest of drawers that had 7 drawers. All of the drawers were open and every single one had absolutely nothing in it. Nothing!! In fact evidence suggested the chest of drawers hadn't been used for a number of years. Copious amounts of dust had built up on the bottom of each drawer. Who knew what was lurking beneath the piles of clothes, towels, sheets, and pillows? Sometimes at night I could hear someone's muffled crying. Thinking back now, I can't remember seeing Lord Daa Doo's flatmate for quite a while.
Admittedly, in my apartment above, I too furnished a floordrobe. It was not as miraculous as my future husband's as I still utilised my actual wardrobe for 'good clothes' and utilised my floordrobe for 'play clothes'.
I recall wearing a pair of floordrobe jeans and being totally horrified when a pair of undies trapped in the leg of the jeans, escaped and decided to fall out when in the middle of a pedestrian crossing. Note to all floordrobers - check floordrobe clothing for underwear before leaving the house!
Got a small space? Don't worry, you can still have a Floordrobe!!
My little sister - nickname: Ballistic Missile - had a narrow bedroom. When Ballistic Missile was about 14 she created 'The Great Dividing Floordrobe'. This was a mountain of clothing that stretched very high, it had deep valleys that were like stepping stones. The deep valleys made a path from the door to the bed. Years later, when the room was eventually cleaned we found a mummified mouse.

Not sure how to start a floordrobe? Just get creative!!
My Aunt - nickname: Jumbo Tits - had a chairdrobe that evolved into a floordrobe. This was amazing and very creative!! Jumbo Tits had a chair in her room and threw all her clothes & towels on it. Over time, the pile of clothes grew so high the weight was too much. The chair fell over. Jumbo Tits couldn't be bothered picking up the chair. She continued to pile more stuff on it. Eventually the clothes leaked all over the floor and became a floordrobe. Under the mountain of clothes a lone chair leg could be seen protruding.
Have pets? Want an alternative?
Dogs love a good floordrobe, so if you have pets and are concerned about them sleeping on piles of your clothing, why don't you try an alternative! THE DOORDROBE!!
A Doordrobe can be quite a useful alternative, and is a common place to store towels. We have one at Daa Doo Manor which gets used for towels, jackets, and scarves. The only drawback is we can never completely shut the door, because clothes always get wedged in it.
|Use a Doordrobe to avoid this|
There you go. There are many alternatives to those boring traditional ways to store clothing.
Try these and you will never run out of storage space. I am sure there are many other alternatives still waiting to be discovered.
