Walk in wardrobe with no rails/shelves

We are currently in a rented house waiting to move into our own property. The landlord has made a small walk in wardrobe in one of the bedrooms but it has no shelving or rails. We don't want to drill the walls if we don't have to and I have been trying to find a supplier of a self support rail so my daughter can hang her clothes up. Does anyone know where I could get a couple of these please? Tried E-bay and Amazon and looked at B&Q etc but all their rails need to be screwed in place.

There are free standing hanging rails in Argos DotMH1901. We lived in a small rented flat for 6 months before we moved into this house. We had no wardrobes at all. They have quite a few to choose from ranging from only £7.99 . smile

We still have some in our loft and garage we bought years ago from IKEA

IKEA Clothes Rack and Stands

We did buy some others before that were not up to the job (for us). Even with nothing hanging on them they were not very sturdy, so if you can, give them a shake before you buy! grin

Just come back from IKEA - they had some as Wilma said. We're temporarily in rented accommodation too - you have my sympathy tchgrin

Lakeland has several storage 'solutions' worth looking at.

Thank you for all the suggestions, will have a look at IKEA and Lakeland. My daughter has loads of lovely dresses and tops that really need to be hung up to keep them nice! smile

Here is an Ikea one avoiding joining the throng at the store.

We've got both kinds in the eBay links. Remember to think about whether or not you want a rail on wheels or not. I have found the ones without wheels are sturdier, but if you want to move them about you have to take a lot of the clothes off the rail. A rail with clothing can be really heavy.
