Coat hooks are a beautiful, but above all useful addition to your home. A coat hook allows you to keep your things off the floor. Think of your coats, bags, hats, and umbrellas. With a coat hook on your wall, you create a tidy and neat hallway or utility room. You can attach a coat hook to a wall, but a coat hook on a door is also an option.
Do you only use the coat hook for your coats? Then the hook is usually just called a coat hook. However, if the coat hook also has a longer hook on top, we call it a hat and coat hook. Due to the useful size of our coat hooks and the simple way of mounting, our coat hooks are used for many purposes. With Wovar coat hooks, you can create a beautiful coat rack on your wall in no time.
Frequently asked questions
Which coat hook should I use?
Which coat hook is perfect for you depends on your personal preferences and requirements. If you only need to hang one or two coats, one coat hook will usually suffice. The same goes for using the coat hook for clothes. Do you need to hang several items? Then it is wise to install various coat hooks, double coat hooks, or even a coat rack.
How do I install a coat hook?
Installing a coat hook is a simple job. The required work depends on the material you are working with. For attaching a coat hook to a stone or concrete wall, you will need to allocate some more time. This is because you will have to drill the holes with a concrete drill bit and use nylon wall plugs with the screws. Mounting a coat hook to a wooden surface can usually be done directly. Are you working with old wood or hardwood? Then we recommend pre-drilling to prevent the wood from splitting.
How far apart should I place the coat hooks?
The distance between coat hooks depends largely on your own preferences. In general, coat hooks will have a space of 10 to 15 cm between the different hooks. This allows you to hang a thick winter coat and still keep the other coat hooks accessible.
At what height should I install my coat hooks?
The ideal height for your coat hooks depends on what is comfortable and reachable for you. For adults, this usually comes to a height of about 170 to 175 cm. For tall people, this will be higher. If the coat hooks have to be accessible for children, position them about 100 to 120 cm from the ground.

Fixing the coat hook to the wall
Mounting a coat hook is an easy job due to the helpful mounting holes in our coat hooks. Simply use the right screws to secure the hook to the wall, and you are done. We recommend using 4 mm chipboard screws. The length of the screw depends on the material on which you are placing the coat hooks. Generally, a 4 x 50 mm chipboard screw will suffice. For stone or concrete walls, combine these screws with nylon wall plugs.
Industrial, black coat hooks
Black coat hooks are incredibly popular. The black variant of a coat hook fit virtually all interiors. The black coat hooks have rust appearance, creating more atmosphere in a room. The coat hooks come in various shapes and sizes. From a simple and tiny coat hook to a luxury version with several hooks. It all depends on what you are looking for, and for how many and which objects the coat hook is needed.
How high should I install my coat hooks?
Coat hooks should be at a comfortable and reachable height on the wall or door. Typically, you install a coat hook on your wall at a height of 170 to 175 cm. Do you want to add a coat rack for kids on the same wall? Place the top coat hooks at 190 cm and the bottom row at 90 cm off the ground. Make sure to keep a distance of 15 cm between the coat hooks horizontally. Of course, the ideal height differs per person and per household.
Coat hooks can be mounted directly to the wall or door. On the other hand, you could go for an industrial look and reuse an old piece of wood. Fix the coat hooks to the wood and then secure the wood to the wall or door. You can find advice on the right screws for each coat hook on the respective product pages.
