How to: Mount

Accessories needed:

  • Measuring tape
  • A sturdy and empty wall
  • Electric drill
  • Spirit level

The very first thing you need to do in order to be able to mount your wall mounted coat rack to perfection, is to figure out its placement on the wall. It does not matter what type of a coat rack it is, a white wall mounted coat rack with a shelf or a wall mounted coat rack and shelf, you need to make sure it is not hung too high or too low. If you hang it too high, then your wall mounted coat rack will cause inconvenience to anyone who has a comparatively shorter height.

The way to figure out the maximum height for the rack is to consider it a wall mounted coat rack DIY and make sure you pay attention to details. In this case, it means checking the height of the shortest person in your house and hanging it at a place where even they can easily hang their accessories on the wall mounted coat and hat rack.

The next thing you need to figure out about your wall coat rack with storage is what is the minimum height that should be left below your wall mounted coat rack. Just see how long the longest coat in your house is and make sure the space left under your wall mounted coat rack vertical or horizontal, is a few inches more than that.

Place the base of it on the wall, if it is a wall mounted coat rack vertical or horizontal then you need to figure it out accordingly. Use the spirit level and measuring tape to finalize the placement and mark it with a marker to avoid confusion. Then drill the holes in and voila! It will be mounted, as simple as that!

How to: Use

Well, if you know what a wall mounted coat rack is all about then, you must be thinking that there is no point in reading about how to use it, right? Wrong! We all know how to use a wall mounted coat rack, but do we really use it to its fullest potential? Not really. And since today we have promised to provide you with an ultimate guide of sorts on unique coat racks that are wall mounted, we will tell us all about their uses as well.

The first use is obvious, hanging your coats! But if you hang one coat per hook, then the entire rack becomes fully occupied too fast, right? The trick to utilize the coat rack as much as it can bear is to hang the short and/or less puffy coats at the bottom and hang the longer or more puffy ones on top of them on the same hooks. Sometimes, even three to four coats can be hung on the same hook. I know you probably do not believe it right now but you should try it out!

The second thing you need to know is that just because it is a “coat rack’, does not mean that you are not allowed to hang other clothing items and accessories on it. Feel free to hang anything on it if need be. If you choose a wood wall coat rack and the hooks are also wooden, then they will be able to hold comparatively bulkier items as well. And if it as big as a 48-inch wall mounted coat rack, then you can pretty much hang all of your clothing items on this space.

So, the bottom line is that you need to make sure you make optimum use of your wall mounted coat rack hooks. Do not go easy on them and keep testing their limits!
