Coat racks are a tasteful way to boost your entryway decor. From a wall mounted coat rack in your mudroom to a classic wooden coat tree in your hall, there are a variety of options to choose from.
Coat Rack Features
Coat and hat racks can reduce the clutter that collects at the front door. They provide a better option to stuffing coats in a closet or throwing them over a chair. Choose from a hanging coat rack, which saves floor space, or a standing version that fits neatly in a corner. Consider these added features in an entryway coat rack:
• Wall Shelf with Mirror. Handy in an entryway, these hanging options give you a place to check your appearance on the way out. You can also use it to stash your keys and mail.
• Cubbies With Baskets. Perfect for a busy family’s mudroom, these shelves give each family member their own spot to store hats, mittens and scarves along with their coats.
• Umbrella Storage. Coat racks with umbrella stands have a retro look. They provide an elegant way to dry out umbrellas without taking up more floor space.
Coat Rack Styles
A chrome or black metal coat rack is a good choice for modern decor. If your home has a more rustic look, opt for one made out of reclaimed or unfinished wood. For a traditional style, select an oak or cherry wooden coat rack.
Coat racks also make a nice addition to the kids’ playroom or bedroom. Start good habits early by showing kids how to hang up their coats, hats or robes. Choose a kid-sized white coat rack and hang it low on the wall so it will be within their reach.
