This versatile storage solution comes with a large variety of storage options. Everything from hooks to shelving, cabinets, and drawers. When making your selection, you need to carefully consider what you will want to store here.
Have a big family or many visitors?
The key function of a hall tree is to house jackets and other types of outdoor wear. So most will have hooks fitted as standard. Although with some designs, these might be limited to just three or four.
With more people in the family or coming and going from the house, select a hall tree with a double or maybe even triple row of hooks. This ensures there is sufficient space to accommodate multiple coats. This is especially important in colder climates where outdoor wear is likely to be bulky.
Live in a place with extreme weather?
If significant amounts of rain or even snow are a problem where you live, you may have specific shoes designated strictly for outdoor use.
A hall tree is the perfect place to keep these for easy access. Select a hall tree with specific shoe storage areas such as low-level cubbies or shoe racks for this purpose.
In addition to this, you may have need of other accessories such as hats, gloves, and scarfs. Selves placed above the coats, where such items will stay nice and dry, are excellent places to keep these so that they don't get misplaced about the house.
Have young children?
In a household with young children, it's a good idea to opt for a hall tree that additionally has storage for book bags and backpacks. This allows you to know exactly where to find such things as you are leaving the house.
Storage benches, either with an open front or concealed storage, provide a little more room for larger items such as these.
Lose small things easily?
Things like car keys, sunglasses, and small digital devices are easily misplaced if you don't have a designated place for them to go. A hall tree with a drawer expressly set aside for such items could ensure that you are not late for work because you can't find your wallet or your keys.
Hall trees are not just useful for storing outdoor items for human members of the family. Any specific accessories for your pet can also be kept here to have them close at hand.
Set aside a specific pet shelf or cubby for leashes, toys, coats, and treats for your furry friends.
Try on different outerwear and accessories before you leave?
Another handy additional feature that some hall trees offer is a mirror so that you can quickly check your appearance before leaving the house.
