What type of hanger to choose?
The choice of hangers for the hallway is huge. You can choose something simple, made of classic materials such as wood or metal, or go a little crazy with a snail-shaped hanger or in a bold colour.
The hanger must be functional!
Regardless of that, remember that a hanger must first of all fulfill its function - it must be able to carry as many outer covers as possible and make it possible to find them freely.
The first question you should answer when deciding on a particular hanger model is: "What will it be used for?" If you already have a roomy wardrobe in your hallway, you might just need a few decorative hooks for your guests' coats. Or maybe your hallway is so small that it doesn't even fit your clothes and shoes? Then it's worth looking for a thoughtful solution to make the most of the space available.
A hanger made of raw pine or beech wood will be ideal for a Scandinavian-style apartment, while the one with an ultra-modern shape and intense colour will work in a minimalist, black and white interior. The impression your home or apartment makes is made up of many design elements - from the layout and colour of the walls to the smallest details. It is worth taking care that they are consistent with each other and create a unique, but kept in one style whole.
If your interior is decorated in a classic style, choose a universal, steel free-standing hanger that can accommodate many clothes as well as umbrellas. The eye-catching colour plastic hangers are suitable for modern interiors, as well as children's rooms and cafés. The steel and chrome proposals will look good in loft-style spaces.
Hangers in the form of hooks are the simplest, yet very practical solution. Thanks to their small size, they can be attached almost anywhere: on front doors, walls, beams or pillars. Available in both classic and unusual shapes (stones, rain drops, cats).
- easy to install
- You can put them together as you like
- aren't as capacious as the freestanding hangers
- not all are suitable for hanging heavy clothing
Hook rails are a popular way to gain space in a hall or corridor for a large number of jackets, coats, bags or umbrellas. The hangers, usually fixed directly to the wall, thanks to their stable construction, can be used to store even heavy outer covers. The variety of forms and sizes allows you to choose a slat that will work perfectly in your apartment.
- capacious, with high lifting capacity
- easy to install
- take up little space
- fit into different rooms: hallway, bathroom, office, children's room
- not every strip can be attached to any surface
- take up more space than single hooks
They do not require assembly, and because they are mobile, they can be moved to where they are most needed at any time. They carry a lot of clothes, sometimes they are equipped with additional rims for umbrellas or shelves for shoes or hats. When choosing a free-standing hanger, pay attention to the stability of its construction and quality of workmanship.
- do not require installation
- typically with a high lifting capacity
- take up more space than hangers in the form of hooks or slats
- due to their size and capacity are usually more expensive than them
Their undoubted advantage is the possibility of hanging them not only on the front door, but also in the bedroom, wardrobe, bathroom or waiting room, where they will be a perfect place to visit the outer covers, bathrobes, kitchen aprons etc. A novelty is the slats with hooks, which are not permanently mounted in the door, but hung on its upper edge, so that at any time you can easily move the hanger to another place.
- suitable for multiple rooms
- easy to mount or hang
- usually not suitable for hanging heavier clothes
Hangers with shelf
Multifunctional and very practical. An integral part of the hanger, the shelf allows for safe storage of keys, correspondence, phones and other necessary items. At the same time, comfortable hooks make it possible to store outer clothing, bags, scarves or umbrellas in one place.
- a great way to stop losing your keys and phone
- they organize and organize the space in the hallway or bathroom
- easy to install
- they take up a lot of space
- not very mobile, because they are usually fixed to the wall
