Hallway coat hooks are really a wonderfully simple invention. We know that they have been around for a long time but we still regularly look at them and realise that even though they are so simple they really are very useful.

Sure it might be less cluttered if you had a cupboard to hide things away in but then finding the things you want can become a bit of a chore. The fact that your items are hanging there on display just makes it so much easier to find them. Particularly if you are in a bit of a hurry and rushing out the door.
We must admit there have been one or two times when we have seen hallway coat hooks that have become so festooned with items that it has not been easy to find things in the layers underneath but that is soon fixed by the cast iron authority of the establisher of house rules. Usually the lady of the house in our experience.
