Models usually start at about half a meter wide, it really does not take up much space on the wall and when deployed it extends out to 1.4 meters so no sacrifices in terms of line drying space, it can easily fit inside a laundry room or small balcony.
Most collapsible clotheslines can be configured as free-standing with optional ground mounting kit so really, the sky is the limit.
Even if space is not an issue
, a collapsible unit is still worth looking into because it might come in handy as a secondary drying line if you have friends or relatives staying with you for the holidays!
Compared to a fixed one, it can be 'hidden' out of sight when not in use or be secured in the event of a cyclone. Minimising--if not completely--avoiding damage to your clothesline.
Sizes, Colour Choices, and Paint Finish
Sizes and colour do matter! Unless you want your clothesline to stand out in an unflattering way or worse, you end up with insufficient drying lines for your family's needs.
There are tons of choices out there depending on where you are buying from, as matter of fact, here at Lifestyle Clotheslines the majority of our designs are available in various sizes and colours with most models available in 10 colours.
