Wall Hooks & Coat Racks

Do you trip over coats, jackets, shoes, and scarves when you walk   into your house?  With a simple set of   wall hooks or a nice coat rack, you can easily remodel your entryway to keep   your floors clutter-free and look clean and organized.  Below is a list of five expert tips to help   you choose the right colors and styles that will best complement your   home.

Where   do you place wall hooks and cloakrooms?

Wall hooks and coat racks are more than handy, functional   objects.  Most are designed with their   own personality that can add style to any room in your home.  When choosing a wall hook or coat rack, consider   the space available, as well as the number and types of items that will need   to be stored in it.

  • The most obvious place for wall hooks and cloakrooms is the   entrance area, as this is where you usually undress from winter clothes when   enjoying the warmth of your home.  It   should be noted that the wardrobe is likely to carry a lot of weight.  So if you choose a wall-mounted option, it   needs to be installed properly (see Tip 4).
  • Toilets tend to be tight spaces so you can benefit from using   single wall hooks to store towels, for example.  You can also choose from a range of wall   hooks built into a wall shelf.  These   fit well above toilets or higher up your bathroom wall and can hold towels,   loofahs, clothing, and even necklaces.    The shelf offers additional space for toilet paper, toiletries or   decorative items.
  • You have more space to work in the bedroom.  Here you can try a corner unit that has   hooks for clothes, shelves for shoe storage down, and space for extra storage   of important items upstairs.
  • If you’re working with a large open space, consider a standing   cloakroom.  These can be placed next to   your couch and offer guests a comfortable place for hats and scarves.  Choosing the right material and the right   color makes this practical piece of furniture a statement in   itself.

How do   you choose the perfect wardrobe for your needs?

Think of your wardrobe as the finishing touch – or an accent   piece.  If you are currently working   with shabby chic decor, a pastel-colored hook or frame with metal parts, for   example, fits this style exactly.  If   you want your wardrobe to be hidden in the background, so to speak, you can   choose a color that will match your walls.    On the other hand, if you prefer clean walls or just want to use   certain pieces of art for your walls, you can use a standing frame.  Plus, this style is mobile.  So if you want to move it to another room,   it’s as easy as picking it up and putting it down.

Think how many coats, scarves, and hats will be hung on your   rack.  Billing family members is pretty   straightforward, but also take into account how many guests you can   accommodate at one time.  This way you   will have a good idea of ??the number of hooks you will need.

Sometimes you have limited space.    For example, if you have a small hall closet and want to try adding a   coat rack, a wall-mounted coat rack is a great option.  This style is literally easy to store away   and offers an average of six hooks (along with some shelf space!).  They are space-saving and fit perfectly   into tiny cabinets.
