Wall Hooks Offer a Simple Storage Solution
If you find yourself fighting a losing battle against clutter, a cluster of wall hooks or a hook rack could be the simple solution you need. Hooks offer an easy way to provide a home for everything from handbags and coats to leashes, towels and even jewelry. With the addition of a few stylish hooks in key areas of your home, you can easily bring order to the chaos without sacrificing style.
When thinking about where to place wall hooks in your home, you'll want to start by considering where things tend to pile up. The entryway or mudroom is typically one of the harder areas of the home to keep tidy, but fortunately, it's also a space that can greatly benefit from a few individual hooks or hook racks. Jackets, scarves, umbrellas, backpacks and even boots can be hung on hooks, freeing up space on the floor or in the closet. Assigning each family member a couple of hooks will ensure that everyone has a designated space for their belongings. Hang a few hooks a bit lower on the wall so that even the youngest family members can help keep things organized.
While the entryway may have the most obvious need for hooks, you'll likely find that there are places throughout your house where a wall hook or two might come in handy. An over-the-door style hook in the bathroom is perfect for hanging a towel or robe. Using a hook for necklaces is an easy way to keep them from becoming a tangled mess. A hook rack near your coffee station is perfect for hanging a few of your favorite mugs. The possibilities are almost endless.
