Choosing the right coat rack for your home

Are you tired of tripping over coats, jackets and shoes, when you walk into your home? You can easily transform your entrance with a nice coat and shoe rack to keep your doorway looking clean and organized. This is not just important from an aesthetic point of view, but if you follow feng shui, you’ll know that keeping your doorway clear is very important for inviting wealth into your home. 

​​What does Feng Shui say about coat racks? This is a good idea as long as you keep it neat and tidy. This means that you shouldn’t accumulate jackets and bags on or around the rack because they’ll block the energy.

Where do you place wall hooks and coat racks?

The most obvious location for a coat rack is the entry way, as this is where you can easily access your outdoor clothing.

Consider how many coats, scarves, and hats will be hung on your rack. Accounting for family members is pretty easy, but also consider how many guests you may host at a time. This way, you have a good idea of the number of hooks you’ll be requiring.

At Hide & Thread, our coat racks typically come with 6 or 9 hooks. Combining your coat and shoe rack helps with space saving and practicality.
