Hooks are practically synonymous with the bathroom; they hang our bath towels up after a shower and hold our guest towels up for when we wash our hands. But the bathroom's not the only place hooks can help out, as evidenced by tons of ideas we've showcased on Apartment Therapy.
There are not only an uncountable array of hooks in many different styles, but there are also tons of places in the home you can use hooks to your organizing advantage, and ways in which you can implement them into your design. A quick round-up of ideas from posts we've seen in the past:
Back of doors A no-brainer. Great for towels, alternatives to coat racks and even preparing your outfit for the next day.
Entryway/landing strip Another brilliant but obvious place. You can use hooks for keys, for pet leashes, spots for guest coats, to hang baskets to store mail and more. You can also set the tone of your home and let guests know you are serious about organization.
Closet Piles of purses, belts, bags, ties, scarves, coats and more are no match when you incorporate the power of hooks in a closet.
Home office Extra extension cords and wires could be hung on hooks, as well as cute little holders for office supplies like pencils, paperclips and more.
Kitchen An oldie but a goodie: hooks are often used for hanging pots and pans to save counter space, but could also be used to hold small containers for spices, utensils and other kitchen goods.
These are just a small selection of the ways hooks have helped out in the home...we want to know how you utilize these affordable, easy-to-use and fun space savers! Do you have a unique way in which you use hooks or an interesting room in your home that sports hooks? Let us know!
