Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvLaundryNow Second One I've Bought!
Loved my first one so bought another and love that one too! Bought the largest one possible for my first house when I got tired of hanging all of my wet clothes up on clothes line strung all around the ceiling of my laundry room. Then two years later when I bought a beach house I bought another double large drying rack for it and now I can hang all of my wet clothes up neatly. I actually enjoy doing laundry now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jannygirl The Drying Rack works great
The drying rack is not only a beautiful piece on our laundry room wall but very functional. I was worried about hanging up such a heavy piece on our drywall but the installation was easy and seems pretty solid. We always have many items to dry hang so the large drying rack is perfect for us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ecodry Exactly what I wanted.
The forty pound weight proved difficult when I tried to mount it. It's still propped on a bench but useable until my shoulder heals from trying to lift it myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lcka52 Very handy (only okay in the quality department)
IF you want the drying rack with the hanger rack, be sure to order correctly. First time around they said I ordered the large drying rack w/o the hanger rack (even though the box said " Large drying rack with hanger rack".) It cost me to send it back and get what I wanted. Yes, I love it, but up close the quality just doesn't meet the price. We live on the beach and have lots of swim suites and things dry and I've never seen this item anywhere but from Ballard.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PTjim Poor paint job
Quality of the wood work in the rack is very good, sturdy and probably will last for a long time. However, the paint job is not good - parts of the rack are rough and spotty. Also, the color of the beadboard was supposed to be white, and it is almond.

by desertdweler Beadboard Drying Rack is GREAT!
Looks like a nice piece of furniture. It's convenient and practical to use, yet looks nice! It is kind of expensive for a drying rack but the convenience and space saving is worth it for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Agingnurse Wish I had purchased it along time ago
As I age, I'm trying to get things off the floor and the drying rack served that purpose well. My husband hung it so I can easily access it. Some things I toss over the bars and some things I hang with a hanger clothespin.
It matches the cupboards in the utilty room and now I can open my dryer door all the way!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Daninika Great use of space Well made product
I have been contemplating this purchase for a while.A friend has the same item and highly recommended it.The recent sale convinced me to purchase it.
The item went up with a small hitch ,the provided wall anchor didn't work in my wall and were easily replaced with ones I had on hand.The finish on one rung is a little rough but was fixed with a quick rub of sandpaper,it wasn't worth repackaging the item, because it was already up . Overall I am pleased with the style , function and quality and would recommend it to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2bhappyathome Excellent design! It looks like a custom made product!
The drying rack is very functional and looks really great. I do wish it was anchored on the bottom of the unit as well as the top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nspired Love The Beadboard Drying Rack
I had continually looked at this item (and the accordian drying rack) but avoided the purchase due to the cost. It was still over our price-range. However, our Christmas present to ourselves this year was to redo our laundry room and finally purchase a good dryer. Since we went ahead to purchase the dryer, I decided I'd finally make the laundry space the way I wanted it, especially since it's a small space. I decided to buy the beadboard rack since it was cheaper. Now that it's here and up on our newly painted walls, I wish I had done this project earlier and made the purchase sooner. It's worth the extra funds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyLaundry Extremely useful
This drying rack is not only useful but very attractive also. It wouldn't hurt to have something to anchor it to the wall at the bottom as well as the top of the unit to eliminate the 'bounce' that you can get when opening the rack. All in all, definitely a great item for the laundry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dorothy2cats Best way to dry delicates!
I had one of those wooden accordion-folding racks in my laundry room, it was always in the way and even when folded up it took up precious space. This beadboard rack is fantastic! Looks good when folded up and works beautifully to dry clothes. I am so very pleased with this purchase, because it was spendy I thought about it for a long time, it is worth every single penny!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MzDetail HAVE TO HAVE IT
We sold our house and left the first beadboard drying rack I purchased in the laundry room there. Now that we are in our new home, I just had to have another. It's the perfect place to dry delicates or wool socks that tend to shrink in the dryer. I wouldn't be without this rack!

Rated 5 out of 5 by wouldlovetobeorganized functional, attractive product!
I had to wait for a few months for this drying rack to come off backorder and it was well worth the wait. Naturally, it has added so much functionality to my laundry room and provides so much area for drying clothes. But it also enhances the look of my laundry room! I love that it keeps my floor clear of racks, after I wash a load of laundry. LOVE this product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EverydayLaundry Practical and attractive
I love items that are attractive and useful all at the same time. This drying rack is both. It is also very sturdy & not at all like those flimsy stand up drying racks. Obviously the space is a little more limited so I also got the accordian drying rack to go along with it and the two of them together are just enough & fit into my nice small laundry room. These are also great for people like me who don't have floor space to work with and need to utilize their wall space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosamunda Makes a small laundry room bigger
This rack is so unique, when I saw it in the catalogue I purchased it immediately. Not only is it functional but it is attactive. I got the white model and it looks great with my white appliances, natural alder cabinets, muslin colored walls and light granite counter tops. I've used it to dry lingerie and rain wet mittens and scarves. I had a carpenter working at my house and he installed it in about 15 seconds. When I have company, since my laundry is adjacent to my kirchen I hang colorful dish towels on it for decorative purposes and to encourage a little help drying the dishes! Don't be afraid to purchase this rack; it adds a unique touch and keeps your counter tops clear of line-dry items maximizing the space in your laundry room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvBDshopping This product provides amazing drying space ONLY when you need it!
Our utility room was part of our recent "up-date" in our home. We took out shelving and cabinetry to give a small space some much needed openness. When we saw the double drying rack, we thought this might be the perfect fix for taking clothes to the guest bath for hang-drying. It is more than we could have ever imagined! We love the product!! It does not take up too much room when in use and is completely out of the way when not in use! We wish we had found it years ago... incredibly pleased with this product!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mvsnooks Looks like part of a custom laundry room
I ordered the small drying rack in chestnut. It is well made and the color matches the laundry room cabinets. This looks like a custom piece that arrived with the other cabinets. It functions well hanging right by the washing machine. A very good choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StPat Absolutely love this drying rack!
I absolutely love this drying rack! It is very high quality and so nice to get rid of that accordian style drying rack that took up floor space in a small utility room! I love how you just push the racks back toward the wall when you are done. The magnetic catches work very well! I got the drying rack with the hanging bars at the bottom, so when I take shirts out of the dryer, I can put them on a hanger and hang them on my rack! Everybody that sees it wants one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristmasAddict Wish I'd gotten this ages ago!
We got the small size of this in cherry. It is very true to the color portrayed in the catalog and matches our cabinetry nicely. Very sturdy and easy to install. We did have to get a bit creative because the studs in our wall weren't where we'd have liked them. Having the hanging hardware on the back go all the way across the top (instead of two smaller pieces) would have alleviated that, but it was not a big deal. Only had it up for about a week but so far, don't know how I lived without it. Super handy and look nice, too. We were able to hang it so when it's open, it's over the laundry room sink. Great for catching any drips!

I recently downsized in my home.. After having the large double sided drying rack for years I knew I couldn't live without it,, I loved the look and purpose it had! So with that said,, the smaller version, darker color and of course the safety pin accessories made my new laundry area just as special... Smaller, but still looking awesome!! Thanks Ballard Design~

We remodeled our laundry room and bought this to conserve space. It is a great product because it takes up little space and when not in use doesn't look bulky. It was easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Magic This exceeded our expectations!
We decided to re-do a small space on the main floor of our ranch home to bring our laundry room upstairs from the lower level. The space is too small to have a standing drying rack, so we saw this, ordered it in the white color option, and it is perfect. My husband could easily install it, too. We love it!

High quality product, looks very nice and I like the ergonomics of it. Installation took some time but was fairly straight forward on the instructions. Appreciated the way it was mounted in order to make sure it was sturdy on the wall.
