If you ended up in this article then there is a big chance that you are on the lookout for the best clotheslines in Maitland, New South Wales, you need not to worry because that is the exact reason why we made this post.
We have carefully taken into account the types of homes popular in Maitland as well as its suburbs and paid attention to the climate in this territory--we will discuss more about this in a bit.
First off is determining your needs, by having a rough estimate as to how much drying line space you and your family will require, it will be easy to choose the capacity of your clothesline and easily narrow down your choices by rule of elimination.
We generally recommend at least 12 to13 metres of drying line space per person in a household so if you have a family of four a clothesline with at least 45 metres or so of total line space should be adequate.
Also, it does not matter what type of house you live in, we guarantee that you will be able to find the right clothesline without it sticking out like a sore thumb, be it a narrow townhouse, studio, cottage or a lush mansion, the extensive range of models and form factors we have has got you covered.
Features to Look for in a Washing Line
Now that you have a ballpark figure as to how much space you want, it is imperative that you choose a clothesline that have a few characteristics suitable for the chilly and rainy Maitland.
The best formula for a perfect clothesline in Maitland NSW:
Stainless steel or aluminium frame for the ultimate resistance against corrosion
Galvanised steel construction with powder coat paint if splurging is out of the question
Wide space between each drying line
Simple yet practical design
For a cool and (most of the time) wet place like Maitland your go to should be a clothesline that is constructed out of stainless steel or aluminium to guarantee years of worry-free clothes drying experience.
Stainless steel can be a bit on the expensive side so if cost is an issue you can opt for aluminium airers but you must bear in mind that aluminium does not have the same level of rigidity that any sort of steel does so if you overload your airer or accidentally leave it outside during a catastrophic storm there is a big chance for your investment to become damaged.
Galvanised steel strikes the perfect balance between affordability and durability and since most manufacturers nowadays use powder coat paint, rusting is rarely a cause for concern for the years to come (in some cases, decades).
This kind of metal is also very stiff so if the situation calls for a bit of overloading, a clothesline made out of galvanised steel will most definitely survive such a tough task but of course, we do not recommend testing a clothesline beyond its limits.
Last but not least is allowing ample airflow between each article, this is a no brainer so if the width between lines shorter than the width of an average person's hand it is not going to provide the best drying experience.
Ambient temperature in Maitland rarely goes higher than 28℃ so line space should be a priority since airflow and sunlight will be your best friends when airing out your freshly washed clothes.
