What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Free-standing rack. A free-standing coat rack offers homeowners a moveable and compact option. This bright teal, 1960s coat rack from a flea market solved the coat hanging problem in this Los Angeles home. “Because of the staircase, there isn’t an obvious landing area for coats and bag,” says Leslie Landis, a Los Angeles interior decorator specializing in residential design. “The coat rack corrals everything together and adds some height to the room.”If you find yourself with piles of belongings in the entry, Landis says, that’s a sign that your system isn’t working. To keep stuff from piling up, she recommends trying a new configuration and adding hooks or baskets. See more of this home
Solution: Coat tree. If free wall space is in short supply, consider a coat tree. Slim and tall, it can tuck into any available corner, ready to hold coats, hats and umbrellas. Look for one that works with the rest of the decor in the room where it will stand.
