  • They have space at the base for storing shoes. Also, they can include different separate shelves that can be used for other purposes.
  • They’re easy to handle and can be moved from one place to another in your house. They’re usually placed in the hall itself or the bedroom. As furniture, they’re really more functional than decorative.

These racks are usually quite simple with metal or wooden hooks on an elongated board that is hung on the wall. You can also decorate them with colors and themes according to your taste. As a plus, you can set this up as a family activity that culminates in a nice decoration for the room. As for the design, you can choose from sophisticated and striking designs to others which are more basic and less aesthetically complicated.
