Metal stands with arms topped by polished wooden knobs or brightly colored plastic pegs seem almost too attractive to cover with clothes. Practical features such as a removable water retainer that collects drips from umbrellas are perfect in the rainy season. Wooden racks that resemble trees or mirror an artful arrangement of twigs and branches also bring an exciting dynamic to this style of coat racks.
Standing Coat Racks
Standing coat racks retain the slender shape of the tree while incorporating tiers of shelving. Multiple hooks at the top offer ample space to hang coats and bags, and the shelves are ideal places to store shoes, books, or magazines. Sets of baskets on the shelves provide storage for outdoor gear such as gloves or incoming mail.
Coat Rack Organizers
If you have the space, a wider coat rack organizer can clear up a lot of clutter. With a run of hooks at the top, these wider units have two or more tiers of shelves that fit several pairs of shoes or other items. An organizer with a useful full-length mirror that conceals the hanging coats gives you the chance to check your look before leaving the house.
Coat Rack Valets
If you shed your workwear the moment you arrive home, a valet rack is an ideal way to stay organized and keep your clothing free from creases. A single coat hanger at the top provides the perfect place to hang your jacket, and rails or additional hangers hold your pants, ties, skirts, and scarves. A valet is also a good way to set out your fresh clothes ready for the morning, saving you time on deciding what to wear in the morning. Valets come in metal and solid-wood designs to fit in with Modern and Traditional homes.
Types of Wall and Door Coat Racks
If you just need a few hooks to store a couple of coats and jackets, a wooden or metal rack with a single run of hooks is ideal. Choose one with brightly colored hooks and allocate one color to each family member. An all-metal rack supports heavy winter coats and looks great in an Industrial-themed home.
Wall-mounted Organizer Racks
A wall-mounted rack with additional storage is a great way to keep organized when space is at a premium. A coat rack with storage cubbies and a shelf provides additional room to store books or display figurines and photographs. A chariot-style coat rack offers storage space for larger bags or hats, and some styles come with one or more hanging wire baskets that can hold gloves and magazines. Choose one with a mirror specifically designed for a bathroom to store towels and hang bathrobes.
If you're unable to drill into your walls to mount a coat rack and lack the space for a tree rack, an over-the-door rack is the perfect solution. These racks simply hook over the top of a door to provide instant hanging space. This clever device is a wonderful option to help maximize the unused space behind doors.
