Free Standing Coat Tree


While they aren't terribly common, some homes still prefer a coat tree over a coat closet, if for nothing more than convenience, although a free standing coat tree does add a classic style that can change the dynamic of an entry area or foyer. Our coat trees are lovely, made of good, sturdy materials, and will last for years. See more in this collection.

Buying Guide

The most obvious place for a free standing coat tree is right by the front door. This provides easy access to coats on your way in and out of the house and acts as an extension of your hall closet. However, there are other places you can store these versatile pieces in your home that can add convenience to your everyday life.

If you don’t require extra storage in your front entryway, the next logical place for a free standing coat tree is by your backdoor or mudroom. If you have a patio, back deck, or beautiful backyard, it’s a great idea to place some of your more casual outerwear on a rack by this exit. It clears up your front hallway closet, making space for guest’s jackets and makes it easy to grab an extra layer on your way to enjoy the backyard.

If you have a decorative, stylish free standing coat tree you can even use it in the bedroom for hanging robes, purses, or scarves. A freestanding coat tree can be handy for quick access to towels or shower caps in the bathroom. If you use your coat rack in the laundry room, bathroom, or other damp area, choose a model made from stainless steel, powder-coated metal, or sealed wood to prevent erosion and moisture damage.

A free standing coat tree will have between three and five spokes or branches that you can hang items off, such as coats, scarves or purses. Each of these branches will be able to hold one heavy item or, on average, two smaller items. Therefore, your average free standing coat tree will be able to hold between three and ten items, for an average of 6-7 pieces.

The best material for a freestanding coat tree depends on your style, quality and cost goals.

A freestanding coat tree can be made from untreated wood. Wood coat trees are well-suited for rustic-themed environments. Choice of wood could range from mahogany and birch to oak and walnut. You could leave the coat tree as untreated or varnish or paint it. Varnish or paint makes the coat tree hard-wearing.

Metal freestanding coat racks are inherently minimalist in their design. They are rigid and strong. Unlike wooden coat racks that shouldn’t be kept in bathrooms or other spaces with high humidity, metal racks can often be placed virtually anywhere. Most metal coat trees are made from stainless steel or aluminum but you will find more ornate options built from brass or other alloys.

A third option is the plastic coat tree. It is hard-wearing and less susceptible to corrosion or deterioration. It is the most affordable. This makes it a good choice if you are more interested in practical considerations and not aesthetic factors.
