Coat hooks are fantastic home accents that you can incorporate into any room's décor. A wrought iron, stainless steel, or other metallic design is crisp yet also has the right hint of Victorian charm. Wood adds to a country look, while bamboo plays nicely when paired with decorative fans and screens.
For children, a variety of colors and character themes livens up the idea of hanging up coats and hats. Different style hooks can be used for clothing, umbrellas, book and hand bags, keys, even laundry bags. Coat hooks with shelves are perfect for displaying favorite photos, books, and statues, or pairing shoes up with outfits. If you prefer not to use a wall mounted set, you may like an over the door style, or one that hangs magnetically. Expandable coat hooks are nice for fitting between book cases or wall art, furnishings that may later be moved or replaced with different sizes. Let your imagination flow!
