Let it all hang out: 6 coat hooks for a welcoming and uncluttered hallway

From handy hooks to big built-in units.

ARE YOU DROWNING in coats but find that the selection of hangers is surprisingly limited?

Whether you have two or ten people under one roof, an accumulation of coats and bags is inevitable – and having them dumped in a heap in the hallway is far from ideal.

This week, we scoured Instagram to give you our edit of stylish ways to cut the clutter. Here’s how you can make your hallway a welcome space that isn’t bogged down with heaps of coats, bags and brollies. 

Spot the dots: @heikes_homestory uses space wisely by filling this nook with two ways to hang coats and bags. We love both the DIY and designer elements in this area that showcase a mix of raw and polished wood for great contrast.

Nicht nur bei der Weihnachtsdekoration habe ich viele Teile wiederentdeckt, sondern auch bei den Wintermänteln habe ich ein Schätzchen gefunden, das ich im letzen Jahr nicht getragen habe. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Und wenn ich jetzt noch Geld in den Taschen finde, wäre es die Krönung. Ich freue mich schon immer, wenn ich in alten Handtaschen Lippenstifte wiederfinde.😄 (Werbung, Verlinkung) _____________________________________________ #garderobe #diy #einrichtungsideen #homestyling #diygarderobe #solebich #schönerwohnen #wohnverrückt #interiordesign #hausbau #hausbautipps #hausideen #bauherren #grundrissplanung #grundriss #home #familyhome #eigenheim #muutodots #flur #flurgestaltung #raumplanung #raumlösung #stauraum #mynordichome #scandinaviandesign #nordicliving #instahome

Find Muuto’s dots at Finnish Design Shop.

Vintage vibes: For a narrow hallway, hanging things high and flush with the wall just makes sense. @thehouseonthestreet goes for a vintage row of hooks that are space-saving and stand out nicely against the whitewashed walls and doorway. 

Find a similar vintage design on Not On The High Street.

New build: On the other hand, if space is on your side, be sure to use it. A storage solution from @wouddesign ensures plenty of hanging room and a shelf for other bits and bobs overhead.

Check out CA Design for this exact unit.

Bespoke beauty: If you’re in for the long haul (hall, geddit?) then why not go bespoke? It requires more of a commitment, and not to mention, funding, but if it ends up looking even half as nice as @jamienaugleinteriors ‘s, it’ll be worth it, right?

Checking out bespoke furniture makers like Noel Dempsey Kitchens and Interiors should be your first step.

Handy hooks: @edwardianhouseinharrogate keeps things subtle by doubling up and incorporating hooks into the brackets of this shelf. The clever addition of the bench creates storage below for shoes, too.

Oh the sun coming out makes everything so much easier. The school/nursery run was positively pleasurable today. Spring.Is.Coming. 🎉 Another thing giving me joy today is the boot room of dreams ❤️. Putting this little shelf up has transformed this room. I keep wandering in just to look at it. Of course it doesn’t usually look like this as my children do all still live here but it’s a darn sight more organised than it was before. The shelf is a scaffold board left over from the build which makes me love it even more. Happy valentines everyone, about to tuck in to m&s dine in and a glass of 🍷 . . . . . #bootroom #countryinteriors #homesense #valentinesstyle #pursuepretty #abmathome #myperiodhomestyle #storageideas #interiorepitome #interiormilk #interior4inspo #myhomevibe #nestandthrive #apartmenttherapy #sodomino #bhghome #scandinavianhome #modernrustic #interiores #designsponge #interiorblink #ekbbhome #scandihome #dailydecordetail #myinterior #homerenovation #periodhome #mudroom #coathooks #pew

Find a similar multi-functional shelf at Woo Design.

Trees company: @klybeck_furniture brings nature indoors with this wooden coat stand that’s a modern take on a traditional design. If you have the room, then a freestanding piece can do its job as well as act as an interesting focal point in the room.

Check out some stockists of the Y coat stand over on Klybeck.
