A hallway creates the first impression about our homes, it also has a very distinct function – it`s a place to store clothes and accessories and keep them neatly organised. No wonder, even the tiniest hallway deserves to be beautifully furnished with careful consideration given to every detail. A wardrobe with a sliding door would be a great idea for a small hallway, it is also possible to purchase attractive and functional coat stands for small spaces. All in all, coat stands for small spaces can be subdivided into two following categories:
Freestanding coat stands
Incredibly elegant and stylish-looking, such coat stands for small spaces are most widely used for furnishing a bar, an office, a reception room or other facility, but may also be suitable for homes with tiny hallways. Such stands usually consist of a pole with a number of hooks and hangers perched on a solid base. Depending on the construction type and its complexity, they may or may not include additional hooks for hats and an umbrella ring with, occasionally, a drip tray. Despite their seeming simplicity, such coat stands may be quite complex and feature key holders and mirrors. The styles and designs are numerous – from traditional luxury coat stands made from expensive woods (oak, mahogany, walnut, etc.) with heavy marble base, to sleek contemporary and funky looking stands, which are less interior demanding.
If you opt for freestanding coat stands for small spaces, make sure the construction is solid and well balanced. Such stands are usually equipped with 6 hooks for coats (although, some units feature up to 12), but have to be capable to sustain additional weight, if necessary.
Wall mounted coat stands
As their name suggests, such stands are usually mounted to a wall, and unlike their freestanding counterparts, may not be easily moved about, although they also have a number of benefits. Wall mounted constructions are usually very space efficient, which makes them fit perfectly into small hallways. Wall mounted coat stands are in general more suitable for small spaces of contemporary apartments, while freestanding coat stands are excellent solutions for offices and restaurants. The choice of wall mounted coat stands in stores across the UK is quite impressive – you can always stick with traditional wood or go for high gloss MDF, whichever you find more attractive.
Wall mounted coat stands for small spaces usually feature an upper shelf for hats and most are equipped with a shoe rack. Many such units also include integrated umbrella stands and are extremely functional and convenient. The downside to such a solution is that it has to match other hallway furniture, so in many cases, it`s better to purchase a complete hallway set.
Last but not least, do not rush to buy the first coat stand you like (especially if you plan to order in bulk). It always makes sense to compare prices in several stores, and if you are looking for a combination of a competitive price and top-notch quality, consider local UK retailer Furniture in Fashion .
