81 Hall Trees

When it comes to your entryway, no amount of storage is ever enough. Finding the space to store sports gear, backpacks, purses, shoes, coats and accessories can at times seem impossible, which is why a hall tree is so helpful. Hall trees, also known as coat racks or stands, help give coats, hats, scarves, umbrellas and sometimes shoes a place. Larger hall trees also have benches and cubbies, which give bags and other accessories a nearby landing spot. As you get ready to make an entryway purchase, here is some helpful advice. More

Where can I use a hall tree?


Hall trees are most often used in the entryway of your home; after all, you tend to shed your belongings as soon as you enter. They also work well near the garage or in a mudroom, especially if your family tends to come in that way and not through the front door. For an extra dose of hospitality, you can even add one in a guest bedroom so guests can hang sweaters, coats and other clothing nearby. In the end, the most convenient place is where you enter your home, so consider your daily activities to ensure optimal organization.

What do I use a coat tree for?


While mostly used for storing coats, jackets and sweatshirts, many hall trees also include benches, cubbies or bins for additional storage. Along with outerwear, those larger pieces can also store shoes, hats, scarves, purses and backpacks, as well as seasonal accessories and sports gear.

What style hall tree do I want?


Ranging from extremely traditional to sleek and trendy, there are a wide variety of hall stands out on the market. Consider what your personal style is, and try to find something that reflects that. You should also consider your storage needs. Traditional models tend to be bulkier and larger, but they also have more storage and therefore might be more practical for larger families. If appearance trumps practicality, select a sleek style with an attractive and unique silhouette.
