Entryway Coat Rack Bench With Storage Wood Hall Coat Benches

Updated on February 17, 2012

A stylish wooden coat rack bench makes a stunning, stylish and functional statement at the entrance to your home. Wood coat rack benches are used for organizing coats, umbrellas, hats, scarves and other outdoor gear and are typically located in an entrance porch or entryway, or against a wall inside a downstairs hallway to provide easy and immediate access to outerwear storage when you enter or leave your house.

Wooden coat racks with a storage bench combined are an elegant solution to the outdoor clothing and accessories storage requirements of any modern family. The hanging coat pegs are ideal for coats, jackets, scarves, hats and other bulky outdoor apparel whilst the storage area can be used for storing those more bulky accessories like umbrellas, Wellington boots, or anything else you want out of sight until it is needed.

Wooden Hall Bench Coat Stands and Storage

These attractive pieces of hall and entrance furniture also give you a seating area as they are all designed not just for storing outdoor accessories but also to be used as a place to sit. This means you will be able to sit down to put on and pull off your shoes which is a nice added convenience and saves bending over or scrabbling around on the floor. This is especially nice for houseguests, particularly older guests, who will not have to struggle to remove their footwear in an undignified fashion.

These are typically upholstered in a variety of styles and of course, a padded upholstered seat is a much more comfortable place to sit. Others have solid bare wood or slats but you can buy padded bench cushions or you can make your own of course and then it’ll definitely fit in with the rest of your home décor.

Decorative Wrought Iron Coat Rack With Bench Storage

Metal hallway organizers are typicaly black metal with ornate swirls and other decorative accents which give them a more modern feel although antique bronze and brushed nickel are also popular styles. Some have a built in mirror which allows you to check your appearance before you leave your home, assuming of course, you haven't got a whole lot of outerwear covering it up.

Make Your Own Coat Rack Bench Plans

If you are particularly good at woodwork or want to build one of these from scratch then there are some great predesigned plans you can buy online for a couple of dollars to get you started.

The great thing about buying a blueprint plan to create your own bench with coat rack stand or making your own design plan if you feel up to it, is you get to make your own design modifications so you get exactly what you want. You can choose your own type of wood, stain or paint it the way you like, add or reduce the number of coat hanging pegs or increase the size of the width or depth of the bench.

You might be able to save money this way too, although that will depend on the type of wood you use and whether you have the tools you require in the first place.
