How about a multifunctional wardrobe?
A great way to increase capacity without necessarily paying a lot more (or taking up an inordinate amount of space) is to purchase a coat rack that has an integrated umbrella stand and maybe even hat storage.
Are all coat stands and umbrella stands equally durable?
When it comes to durability you have several options including: all metal, aluminum, plastic and wood.
- aluminum Coat racks are known for their light weight, sturdiness and durability.
- stainless steel Coat racks offer an even longer service life than aluminium.
- Wooden Wardrobes, when made from solid wood, offer a similar durability with (depending on taste, of course) an added aesthetic that other products find difficult to duplicate.
- plastic Coat rails come in all sorts of fancy colors and offer reasonable durability at a reasonable price. However, if durability is your primary concern, these probably shouldn’t be your first choice. The children like the unusual colors.
How important is aesthetics when buying a coat rack or umbrella stand?
We know we’re on dangerous ground here. Because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t use both sides of your brain when choosing a coat rack or umbrella stand.
OK, the shelf/stand should be functional and durable, but you also don’t want it to be so ugly that it one day deters potential buyers trying to sell your house. Considering the following factors might be helpful in this regard:

Here we say: buy something you think is beautiful and hope that your friends think it is beautiful too. Not just today, but ten years later.
Which factors primarily influence the stability of a wardrobe or an umbrella stand?
There is hardly anything more embarrassing than when the boss comes to dinner and your wardrobe falls to the floor as he tries to hang his rather bulky coat on it. Before you buy, consider the following factors:
The base: The heavier and larger the base, the more stable the coat rack. A coat stand with an integrated umbrella stand on the underside is initially more stable than one without a stand.
The design and material: While a single-legged stand definitely needs a solid base to prevent it from tipping over easily, a multi-legged stand is inherently more stable. Also, a heavier material is less likely to tip over than something very light.
What other factors should I consider before buying a coat rack or umbrella stand?
As the old saying goes, “The devil is in the details.” Before you make that final purchase decision, put away your credit card, sit down, and think about the other practical things you might have forgotten. Things like:
The size and shape of the hook
When you or someone you know visit you, you often have an extra heavy winter coat and a clothes rack with you Ball-ended hooks ensures that nothing can tear. If you have children in the family, different hook sizes are also a good idea because why use a solid hook for a toddler jacket?
You can get coat racks, coat racks and umbrella stands in many different designs and shapes. This is usually a matter of personal choice and does not affect the usefulness of the stand. Note, however, that a stand in the shape of a beautiful pear tree will take up more space than one with a single straight leg.
The Curse of Origin
If you buy a $10 coat rack at a flea market, you can’t count on it lasting a lifetime. If you want something your grandchildren will be proud of, find a reputable retailer or manufacturer with a proven track record.
By now you will find that buying a coat rack or umbrella stand is a very personal decision, much like buying a coat or umbrella. It’s not just about its usefulness, it’s also about what it says about you and your home.
