Entrance halls a place where people can come and go. They are also a place where we can create a design, keep our furniture and hang our coats. So it’s a good idea to think about the key points to consider when choosing your coat rack.

It’s worth bearing in mind that the first thing you see when you enter a house is the entrance hall. This is why it’s important to decorate it and ensure that it’s functional.

A coat rack in your entrance hall can take center stage or fade into the background. In either case, there are a couple of key points to bear in mind.

Organization and simplicity

There are multiple options available when choosing a coat rack. We are perhaps used to seeing the kind that stands upright with several branches at the top for hanging coats. This type of coat rack is undoubtedly the most classic option.

There are now a number of other more original and inventive designs available that could give your home a modern touch.

One option is individual hooks hung on the wall, which can either be quite simple or come in different shapes and colorsWhichever style you prefer, you can also choose how many hooks you would like.

Another choice is a coat rack with a series of hooks. This type of coat rack can also have a set of shelves positioned above the hooks. This will allow you to make the most of your space.

It’s also worth considering the color of your walls, which will determine the color of your coat rack. Although, there is still the option of leaving the rack unfinished so the material shows through.

Coat rack furniture

There are many different types of furniture that incorporate a coat rack. This furniture generally takes up a lot of room. It requires its own dedicated space, meaning it would really stand out in your hall.

One option that is very original and practical provides not only hooks but also a bench. Some pieces of furniture even have a lower shelf close to the ground that functions as a shoe rack.

Racks that provide a set of drawers on the bottom can also look quite elegant. This option saves space and it also shows that you want your entrance hall to really stand out.

By creating your own individual look in your home, using different furniture you can show your visitors the best is yet to come.

But, in order to create an elegant look, you don’t need coat racks that come in odd sizes or modernist designs. A coat rack that has simple lines can still be very intriguing.

Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.’

Racks in different materials

Which materials do coat racks come in? This depends on what shape you would prefer your coat rack and how you intend to use it.

Wood is the most commonly used material, especially in coat racks shaped as trees, as the branches can hold belongings. Wood gives a more natural look and is easier to make into a rack than metal.

Coat racks can also be of iron or steel, which are very versatile materials that come in a variety of shapes.

Iron or steel racks are usually in entrance halls with modern, urban and simple designs. They don’t have the same warm look as wooden racks, but they come in different shapes.

Finally, it’s worth bearing in mind that entrance halls also contain furniture. This is why it’s important to choose the right coat rack that goes well with other pieces of furniture, such as a console table.


We all know that great originality can be found in homes where every detail is thoughtfully styled. Carefully choosing your coat rack is therefore extremely important.

Any type of decoration that we choose not only reflects our personalities, but it also shows the substance of our homes and demonstrates our taste in furniture

Originality stems from the ability to take a classic piece in a traditional shape and transform it to suit the taste of the artist.

Coat racks can breathe originality into our homes and show great innovation and an eye for detail.

Imagination is the mother of all originality
