Wall and Coat Hooks

When it comes to creating a home, wall hooks and coat hooks are a must! Perhaps you’re after a functional coat rack to keep things tidy, or maybe you’re looking for a decorative wall hook to display your photo frames or other home accessories. Either way, wall and coat hooks will add a personal yet practical touch to the home.

What are the best wall hooks?


There are many different types of wall hooks, so the best one for your home will depend entirely on what you’d like to use it for. If you’re looking for a temporary storage solution then a self-adhesive or removable wall hook could be exactly what you need. But if you’re hoping to make a long-lasting statement, you might prefer a row of individual wooden coat hooks or a chunkier double hook. The choice is yours!

What are wall and coat hooks made of?


Metal or wooden hooks are the most common, due to their strength and resilience. That said, there’s still a lot of choice, so you’ll need to think about which wall and coat hooks will best suit the style of your home. A contemporary hallway could benefit from the raw elegance of cast iron, whereas an eclectic-style living room has a certain glamour that can be best brought out by antique brass or stainless steel. If you’re after a more hygge feel, you might opt for a wooden wall hook or coat stand instead.

How high do you put coat hooks?


You might be surprised to hear that in most buildings, there isn’t a standard height for coat or wall hooks. So, when you’re deciding how high you’d like to put yours, you’ll need to think about how easy they’ll be to use as well as how pleasing they’ll be to look at.

The average height for a coat rack or hook is about 175 cm off the ground, or 70 inches. However, you’ll need to make sure that this height is practical for whoever’s going to be using it. To check, hang up the coat of the tallest person in your house and place their tallest boots on the floor beneath it. Hopefully, the coat will clear the boots. If it doesn’t, you’ll probably prefer to move the wall hook higher up.

Likewise, before putting up a children's coat hook, check that the child can reach it easily and then carry out the same test. Or if you’re putting up a whole clothes rack, just remember to take into account the difference in height that any coat hangers might make.
