Long Over the Door Hooks

Updated on September 10, 2014

Over the Door Hooks for Short People

I'm short, and long over the door hooks work so much better for me than those hooks that sit way up high at the top of the door.

Like special tools for left-handed people, we "wee" folks need some extra compensation, too! A few extra inches on a door hook make a world of difference.

Take it from a shortie, hanging your robe, nightgown, or towel on a hook that doesn't require the use of a step stool is a pleasure indeed.

Hang 'Em Low

Over the door hooks that are longer and

that hang lower are easier for short people

like kids (and me) to reach.

Hooks That Hang Low - So Short People Can Hang Up Their Stuff!

Many decorative options are available to match your home decor. Find an over-the-door hook in the same finish as your towel racks, if you are that picky. I'm not. I just like to not have to get on my tippy toes to reach my robe.

Over The Door Hooks for Your Work Home

Get an over the door hook for work.

Hang it from your office door. Your coat will thank you.

Bathroom Hooks

Keep robes and towels off the floor

with an over the door organizer rack or hook.

A hook on the back of a door is so much handier

than hanging your robe in the closet.

Robes to Hang on Over the Door Hooks

Robes are cozy and comfy. Keep yours handy on a hook that you can reach.

Step Stool for When You Just Can't Reach

Sometimes hooks just aren't long enough. In that case, a step stool can be quite the handy tool. I keep a couple of small step stools around the house (and a reacher/grabber thingie) to make reaching high items so much easier.

Supplies for Short People - Make Life Easier

For short people, like me, these tools make every day life easier. I have a grabber tool that lets me reach things way up high.

I have several step stools that let me clean my ceiling fan blades and reach up high to change light bulbs.

And I keep a small stool under my computer desk to rest my feet on because it's just more comfortable than having to reach all the way to the floor. My feet are on it right this minute!

      I'm looking for more like this so my kids can reach the hooks! Over the door hooks are so convenient for coats but they can't reach the hooks. The longest one I've found is the Interdesign Axis one that you have pictured above. But I'd love to find a long one with 4 hooks like the York. I'm going to click on that one now to see if it's long enough, but I can already see it's not as long as the Axis.

      I'm not particularly 'wee' in any sense of the word but the long door hooks are a great idea anyway. Blessed!

      I like having the over the door hooks in our bedrooms. They are so handy for tossing a shirt or robe on.

      Have some old over the door hangers, but they are not as nice as this collection. :)

      What a great idea - my mother-in-law is not even 5 feet tall, so she could really use some of these.
