Hook Ideas for Your Entryway

Keep your coats organized

Install coat racks to stop coats from getting thrown across a bannister or table. Wet coats will also dry much more efficiently on a rack.

Look after your keys

Add hooks to keep your keys safe and ready for you before you leave the house. Looking for lost keys is stressful, so give your key a home.

Use novelty hooks

Hooks don’t have to be devoid of personality. Look for themed hooks that make a functional item full of character.

Layer hooks at different levels

Consider installing hooks at staggered heights to maximize wall space, and to cater to people of different heights.

Add hooks on the stairs

Extend a small entryway by adding hooks alongside the stairs. Find convenient space for hanging coats alongside the lower stairs.
