You may think coat hangers are not a particularly important aspect of your interior. After all —  they’re just there for your convenience of having a place to hang your coats. But as the total design movement would dictate, every single element of your interior contributes to the over-encompassing design. No single detail is left behind, so yes, even something as simple and sometimes barely noticeable as coat hooks, plays a part in your interior aesthetic.

Luckily, there are a lot of options when it comes to coat hangers, as there are with just about any other interior design detail. Put a little extra thought into your wall hooks for coats and other belongings, and you’ll notice just how much more appealing your entryway can become with this small addition. 

Separate Hook Set

Many of the coat hangers you find on the market will have some solid piece of wood or metal running horizontally along the wall. This is a very ergonomic way to hang the coats of your household and guests, as the single-piece hanger can handle a lot of weight and is very easy to secure onto the wall. However, this doesn’t mean that you cannot use individual planks of wood and hooks for your coats. This design is very cute and opens up creative freedom for those looking for their coat hooks to be more heterogeneous and unique. Pick out your wooden planks, get a few aluminum coat hooks, and you have yourself a fully functioning hanger for the entrance. 

Ergonomic Door Hooks

Have trouble fitting your coat hooks on an empty wall as you’ve run out of space? No worries, because you can simply use over the door hooks which save space and provide your coats with very convenient storage space. These specialized hooks are fitted onto the door itself, typically used for interior doors. With the hooks installed, you can hang your coats and outdoor clothing from them, not only giving you convenient access but also saving space on the walls. This is also great for anyone who does not wish to drill holes into their gorgeous wallpaper since every tiny hole that you make will cause you a lot of trouble to fix up in the future. Just remember to pick up the sturdiest hooks you can find and ones that can fit in the threshold between the door and the frame itself. Purchasing over-the-door hooks that are too thick could damage the door hinges with their additional thickness.   

Colorful Single Plank

While individual plank hangers work quite well in their own right, a single-piece coat hanger is still one of the most popular designs you can find. Its simple, yet timeless, aesthetic gives it a unique flair that can be incorporated into just about any interior. The main advantage of a single plank coat hanger is its installation. Since you will only need to install a single solid surface and the hangers onto that surface, you won’t have to make too many holes in the wall. This means that if one day you decide to move your coat hanger to a different section of the wall or even a different wall entirely, you won’t be left with a bunch of holes where the old ones you used to be. 

Valve Coat Hooks for Wall

Valve coat hangers are a very bold statement when compared to the more conventional hooks and coat racks you can install. We’re all used to those metallic hooks jutting from the walls with some designs being more ornamented and decorative. But valve hangers have a very unique appearance. Their floral heads make for a very decorative entrance hall coat rack. This is also the perfect way to repurpose old valves that you would have otherwise thrown into the garbage. So, not only are you reducing waste, but you’re also repurposing old, but very aesthetically pleasing pieces of metal these quirky coat hooks for the wall. It is important to ensure that the valves are welded into their base, as you don’t want them coming loose every time someone grabs their coat. 

Wood Pallet Set

Wooden pallets have a very unique aesthetic. Their natural wood texture makes them very rustic, a perfect addition to any farmhouse or cottage interior. On the other hand, pallets are often associated with warehouses and factories, which are very industrial. So, pallets sit somewhere in the middle between a rustic wooden decor element and something that is more industrial. So, you can take advantage of this middle ground and incorporate the pallet into your interior, be it a modern farmhouse or a more modern loft design. One way or another, creating your pallet coat hanger is actually relatively simple. You don’t really need to get a hold of a real pallet, but rather a handmade coat rack that works within your interior. With a few standard planks of wood (2 by 4s or 4 by 4s work quite well) as well as a few nails, you can make your very own unique pallet hanger that can take any form that complements the rest of your interior. 

Reclaimed Wood Pieces

If you’re in the market for a vintage wall hook rack, nothing beats reclaimed wood. Reclaimed wood comes with a lot of visual detail. First and foremost, it’s the deterioration. While normally, deteriorated materials are usually seen as a blemish or a defect, reclaimed wood presents this deterioration as history. Even with something as small as a coat rack, reclaimed wood can still add some visual flair and heterogeneity. By attaching a few wrought iron unbreakable coat hooks, you can create a sturdy coat rack for your entrance. For some added visual flair, you can also include some old-fashioned metal slots for nametags if you wish to keep the coats organized with everyone’s belonging having their own little place to hang. 

Minimal Loft Design

Loft interiors are holding strong as many homeowners love their industrial, minimalist aesthetic. There’s just something so satisfying about seeing the black metal coupled with planks of brightly colored wood. A major element of loft interiors is bare brick walls, especially near the entrance. So, to complement the loft entrance with some strong wall hooks, install some wooden and aluminum hangers, that not only work aesthetically but also in terms of practicality. Keep the shapes and forms of your coat hangers to a minimum, as this will correspond with the rest of the minimalist aesthetic that loft interiors tend to strive for.
