1. More than just a piece of furniture for the hallway: the stand-alone wardrobe

Even though a valet is classically used to store jackets and bags in the hallway, it can also be used in the bedroom, dressing room or bathroom.

Viktoria furnishing expert Tips for advisors "Coat racks no longer belong just in the foyer. On the contrary, they enrich our home in many places through their functionality, whether as a mute in the bedroom corner or as a decorative ladder in the bathroom." - Viktoria, home decorator

So even if you are looking for an extension of your wardrobe or a wardrobe replacement, a designer wardrobe stand from us can be the right piece of furniture for you. A standing mirror is also well suited for the further extension of a dressing room. In addition, a free-standing coat rack or "ladder rack" can be perfectly converted into a shower towel or bathrobe holder in the bathroom and into a shelf for dish towels, aprons and the like in the kitchen. Especially with regard to loft-like living, a coat rack can be an optical room divider that stands on its own as a decorative "work of art".

"When it is clear where you want to use your new designer coat rack, the only question is the size. When choosing the right coat rack, you always have to consider how much space I have available and how many people mainly use it - everything else is a question of personal style." - Viktoria, home decorator

2. Cloakroom models and their advantages

Wall-mounted coat racks as storage

A wardrobe that you mount on the wall is particularly safe and practical due to its very firm stand, especially with regard to children or even pets. In addition, such a model is very space-saving and is therefore also well suited for smaller rooms. Some of the items that you can find online, such as the Andersen Furniture coat rack, can not only be mounted on the wall, but can also be converted into a standing wardrobe in a double version including a connecting piece.

Especially practical - the clothes rail leaning against the wall

A coat rack leaning against the wall is also very space-saving and particularly suitable for narrow or confined spaces. It can also be set up without any tools and you can move it around as often as you like.

Freestanding coat racks: mobile and decorative

If you are looking for a very special highlight for your home, a freestanding coat rack is just the thing. Because it gives every room that certain something and is particularly decorative. Another advantage is its flexibility in terms of location. Even though this model requires more space than other coat racks, there are also solutions for small space situations.

The flexible version: clothes rail with wheels

A movable wardrobe is particularly practical if you want to move it frequently within or between different rooms, e.g. in the dressing room or from the laundry room to the bedroom and vice versa.

Always open for change: storage ladder as part of a series

System furniture is the right choice, especially if you are not quite sure how much you really need in the end or if you would like to keep the expandability of your coat rack open. Because clothes rails that are part of a series can be extended again and again and fit very harmoniously into the overall picture of the respective room.

Useful additional functions: Coat rack with mirror, shelf & Co.

Many coat racks offer not only the possibility of hanging clothes, but also other practical functions: Especially coat racks with mirrors allow you to check your outfit once again and also visually expand the room. With an integrated shelf, you also have bags and hats always ready or the possibility to decorate your wardrobe with flowers or candles, for example, while a drawer is particularly suitable for storing small items such as keys or headphones.

3. How to use wardrobes in a child-friendly manner

So that the little ones can hang up their jackets in your home like the grown-ups, coat racks that can be used at different heights are the right choice. Since you can adjust them individually, they always grow with the children.

4. Stirrups vs. hooks - which fits you better?

Coat racks can be divided into two different hanging options, both of which offer different advantages: While you can hang your clothes on hangers in a particularly neat way, so that creases are prevented, and you also have a quick overview of the individual garments, hooks are very time- and space-saving. The latter are therefore often preferred in the hallway, while the former are particularly popular in dressing rooms and bedrooms .

5. Coat racks made of wood, metal or with lacquer - designs for every taste

With us you can buy coat racks in the most different designs: With a clothes rail made of wood you create a warm, cosy living ambience and choose a particularly durable and sustainable material. As wood is a natural material, the colour can change over time and traces of use can also be visible, giving your piece of furniture its very own charm. Metals, on the other hand, are very robust and easy to clean by simply wiping. This also makes them very durable and creates a noble atmosphere. In addition, they can reflect the light in an exciting way and thus create very special effects. Painted coat racks with coloured surfaces bring life to darker rooms.
