What type of hanger to choose?
The choice of hallway hangers is huge. You can opt for something simple, made from classic materials such as wood or metal, or go a little wild by choosing a snail-shaped hanger or a striking colour.
A hanger must have a function!
Regardless, remember that a hanger must first and foremost serve its purpose - to hold as many garments on it as possible and enable you to find them easily.
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 capacious wardrobe in your hallway, perhaps you only need a few decorative hooks for guests' coats. Or perhaps your hallway is so small that not even the clothes and shoes of the household members can fit in it? Then it's worth looking for a thoughtful solution that allows you to make the most of the space available.
A rough-hewn pine or beech hanger is ideal for a Scandinavian style home, while an ultra-modern shape and intense colour is perfect for a minimalist, black and white interior. There are many design elements that contribute to the impression your home or flat makes - from the layout of the rooms and the colour of the walls to the smallest details. It is important to ensure that these elements are consistent with each other and create a unique, but unified whole.
If your interior is decorated in a classic style, choose a versatile steel free-standing hanger, which can accommodate many clothes as well as umbrellas. Plastic hangers in eye-catching colours are suitable for modern interiors, as well as children's rooms or cafés. Steel and chrome 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 fixed almost anywhere: on the front door, wall, beams or pillars. Available in both classic and unusual shapes (stones, raindrops, cats).
- easy to install
- can be combined as desired
- they are not as capacious as free-standing hangers
- not all are suitable for hanging heavy garments
Hanger rails are a popular way to create space in a hallway or corridor for a large number of jackets, coats, bags or umbrellas. Usually attached directly to the wall, the hangers can be used to store even heavy outer garments thanks to their stable construction. The variety of forms and sizes makes it possible to choose a rail that is ideal for your flat.
- capacious, with a high load capacity
- easy to install
- suitable for various rooms: hall, bathroom, office, children's room
- not every rail can be fixed to any surface
- they take up more space than single hooks
They do not require assembly, and because they are mobile, they can be moved at any time to the place where they are most needed. They hold a lot of clothes on them and are sometimes equipped with additional hoops for umbrellas or shelves for shoes or hats. When choosing a free-standing hanger, pay attention to the stability of its construction and the quality of its workmanship.
- no assembly required
- usually with a high load capacity
- take up more space than hangers in the form of hooks or slats
- they tend to be more expensive than hook and bar hangers due to their size and capacity
Their undoubted advantage is that they can be hung not only on the front door, but also in the bedroom, dressing room, bathroom or waiting room, where they will be the perfect place to hang up coats, dressing gowns, kitchen aprons, etc. A new feature are the hook strips, which are not permanently mounted in the door but are hung on the top edge of the door, so that the hanger can be moved to another location at any time without any problem.
- suitable for many rooms
- easy to install or hang
- usually not suitable for hanging heavier clothing
- not very roomy
Hangers with a shelf
Multifunctional and very practical. The shelf, which is an integral part of the hanger, allows safe storage of keys, correspondence, telephones and other necessary items. At the same time, the convenient hooks allow outerwear, bags, scarves or umbrellas to be stored in one place.
- great way to stop losing your keys and phone
- organises and tidies up space in the hallway or bathroom
- easy to assemble
- take up a lot of space
- Not very mobile, as they are usually fixed to the wall
