In addition to being practical and functional, wall hooks also have aesthetic importance, and it is pretty common to use decorative wall hooks as wall decor.

7. Wall hooks as towel racks in your bathroom

Beautiful bathroom decor isn't just about colors and finishes. Although these make a big difference in the overall look of your space, you can't forget about the decorative details that tie it all together. Towel racks can be boring, with very few designs to choose from. So why not use wall hooks in your bathroom instead? Wall Hooks keep a low profile because of their practical function, but they don't have to. A little creativity can help you use hooks as more than just functional features - they can be part of the decor too.

8. Nix the freestanding coat rack and use Wall Hooks

Coat racks are smart storage ideas to keep things tidy, but, let's face it, coat racks have been known to tip over and damage your flooring and also take up floor space. Consider using wall hooks instead, especially in small spaces. Creative wall hooks and racks are every bit as functional as their freestanding counterpart, but are more practical and tend to be more decorative and inexpensive.

9. Wall Hooks in the laundry room are a must!

No one likes to do laundry (well, I don't know anyone... but if you do, even better!) especially if your laundry room isn't equipped with all the things that make doing laundry easier. Wall hooks are actually one of those essentials. They are perfect for hanging clothes that can't/shouldn't go in the dryer, or after ironing.

12. Think Ahead

Be sure to consider what you will be hanging on your wall hooks before deciding on the best hooks for your purpose. While some gorgeous Faux Antler Hooks will work great for lightweight items like jewelry, scarves, hats and leashes, their delicate nature would not make them suitable for hanging kids backpacks or heavy winter coats. Heavier items require more sturdy, durable hooks made of wood or metal. Also, be sure to mount them to the wall securely enough to hold whatever you hang on them.
