A coat rack can give an entrance hall or bedroom real flair, and keep the house more organized.

In an office environment, it gives a special welcome to guests. In a school, it can reduce the chance of lost belongings (and arguments).

If you feel it's time to add one of these practical design features to your home - or school or office for that matter - read on to find out how to choose the right one!

Top 5 Tips for Buying a New Coat Rack

The perfect coat rack for you will depend on a few factors. The decor of your house will obviously influence your decision, as will use, placement, permanence and a million other things.

Have a look at our top tips to help you buy.

1. Be Practical

If you live in a cold, wet, muddy climate, you'll want a coat rack big enough to place wet raincoats away from woolen coats. You may also want to consider those with a built-in box seat so you can sit to put shoes on and take wet boots off.

2. Be Stylish

Yes, your coat rack has a practical purpose. But it is a noticeable piece of decor. Curtains are functional pieces too, but think how much time you put into matching and selecting those. Equally, your coat rack is a decorative statement, so make it beautiful, make it count!

3. Work the Space

Think about the amount of space you have, and the message you want it to communicate. If you have an enormous entrance way and like to entertain, don't settle for a tiny coat tree.

Select a large rack system that speaks to guests about the family that live there. If you want a rack for a small corner in a child's bedroom, check out some small but playful options.

4. Be Purpose Focused

In an elementary school, a coat rack system can have many hooks and will need to be at the right height for the age-group of its users. Depending on the age of the children, you'll probably want design elements such as colors or animations.

In a house or office, you'll want a range of hook sizes for the bags, coats or umbrellas staff and guests choose to hang - you may even separate the two areas.

5. Shop Around

As can be seen above, the range of needs in coat racks is broad, so too are the materials and types available to meet that need. Make some firm decisions about your budget, and then get out there to compare options.

The more options you see, the better idea you will have about the right one for you - and were to find it at the right price!
