Wall mounted hooks:
If your space is small wall mounted coat hooks will help ensure that everybody has a space for his or her coat and hats. Two-in-one hooks can be mounted to take up coats and hats at a go. With the wall mounted hooks, your wet coats are exposed to air and they dry while hung on the hook.

Use of closets:
Closets can be used with hooks mounted on the outside of the closet to hang your favorite and mostly used coats, hats and handbags. Closets are also useful in addition to coat racks in your foyer if you require more storage than a single coat rack can provide. With a single rack across the closet door, you will have a space where you can hang other items like umbrella, with your shoes and boots placed at the foot of the closet.
