Introduce a hat stand to your hallway and you'll always have somewhere stylish to hang your hat. This timeless storage idea - the coat tree, aka the hat stand - is a space-saving winner. Choose a petite stand if space is limited, ideal for use under stairs or if you have sloping ceilings . In a grand hallway opt for a sophisticated stand - think tall, polished aluminium, designed to add a touch of glamour. However, even in a narrow entryway, a hat stand makes a functional (and fashionable) hallway idea. Consider a fabulous hat-topped floor lamp, offering additional hanging storage, to add a quirky element to your home. Take a look at our selection of the best hat stands so you're always welcomed in to a neat, organised hallway.
