Organizing a small space on a limited budget can be tricky, but what if we told you we discovered a home decor item that can work wonders for multiple rooms in your home—all for under 10 bucks?
Believe it or not, wall-mounted coat hook racks—like this satin nickel one from Amazon—can be used to organize everything from purses in a tiny closet to pots and pans in a cramped kitchen. Read on for a handful of unexpected ways you can employ a coat hook rack to help streamline your space.
1. For Extra Closet Storage
Searching for an inexpensive way to show off your purses and scarves in style? Install a sleek wall-mounted coat rack inside your small closet—or along a nearby wall if you’re lacking the closet space—to organize your handbags, totes, scarves, and other hang-able accessories.
2. To Hang Your Kitchen Cookware
Forget that you hardly have any room for stashing cookware; a tiny kitchen is no match for a well-placed coat hook rack. Mount one above your stove to store your favorite skillets within arm’s reach or along a kitchen wall to hang up bulkier pots and pans without taking up any cabinet space.
3. To Organize Your Jewelry
Dreaming of a cheap (but chic) jewelry organizer that won’t take up too much room? Wall-mounted coat racks are perfect for sorting and hanging dangly jewelry such as long necklaces and hoop earrings. Just install one on a bathroom wall and voila: You’ve got a neat jewelry holder that doesn’t require an inch of your precious counter space.
4. To Fake an Actual Entryway
If your apartment is anything like mine, you’re likely working with an awkward (and super cramped) doorway in place of a proper foyer. Luckily, you can transform your narrow apartment entrance into a streamlined entryway by simply installing a wall-mounted coat hook rack on which to hang your umbrella, keys, purse, and other out-the-door necessities.
