The entryway of your space is prime real estate. From a purely functional standpoint, it’s an area to store your go-to shoes, work bag, outerwear, and more. But more than that, it’s the way you welcome everyone — including yourself — into your home. Unfortunately, that welcome can often clouded by disorganized piles of footwear, coats, and bags. That’s where the hall tree comes in.

Hall trees are equal parts coat rack, shoe storage, and in many cases, a convenient seat where you can put on your shoes without toppling over. Ahead, our 10 favorite hall trees for any budget, style, and space — even tight corners!

Pottery Barn

Got a small space? That's not a problem with this Pottery Barn hall tree that measures just 21 inches wide, but an impressive 73 inches tall. The top and bottom shelves are great for baskets and shoes. The welded iron frame also includes six hooks for coats or hats and a teak wood bench.

was $189.99

We love the woodgrain finish and farmhouse style of this Walmart hall tree. The cubby design includes four hooks and a bench. But what really stands out is the top and bottom drawers which provide concealed storage, because sometimes you just don't want everything on display.

Home Depot

This corner hall tree has a V-shaped design that occupies less space than traditional hall trees. There are four metal hooks for essentials, plus an open shelf for smaller items. We also love the drop-down door of the bottom shelf that has two racks for shoes.

Yamazaki Home

A clean, simple aesthetic is what you'll get with this Yamazaki coat rack. Made of steel and wood, you can use the bar to hang your favorite outerwear while the bottom shelf is spacious enough for bags, accessories, and several pairs of shoes.

This 4-in-1 hall tree serves major function at an affordable price. Not only does it include nine hooks, but they're removable, so you can move them around and use what you need and set the rest aside. Also, the hanging rod above has a 22 pound capacity, and we can't forget the bench and two rows of shelves.

West Elm
was $399.00

If there was ever a chic hall tree, this West Elm pick would be it. The metal frame has an antique brass finish and the ladder-style angles perfectly against the wall. The hooks are perfect for umbrellas, tote bags, or hats, and the two shelves securely hold items you'll want to grab before heading out the door. The round mirror and shelves make this a great entryway addition.

Shoe lovers will get tons of use out of this Wayfair hall tree that has not one, but two shelves that measure 40 inches wide and six inches high to fit a range of shoes (from sneakers to heels!). Like most hall trees, this one includes hooks, but another standout feature is the metal grid that also includes six movable hooks.

was $161.99

You'll love the long mirror on this hall tree for those last-minute touch ups as you're heading out the door. You can also use the bench to comfortably to take off your shoes (no more stumbling around). Also, one of the shelves is extra tall, making this the ideal space for boots.

9 / 10

For a space-saving pick that's sure to blend with most decor, try this Umbra rack that comes in neutral combos like black and walnut, or white and natural. The six hooks are sturdy enough to hold essentials and the small stool is a sufficient spot to take off shoes or hold your everyday tote.

10 / 10

The wood elements perfectly complement the metal frame of this hall tree from Target. You'll find five sturdy metal hooks for coats, hats, umbrellas, or anything you'll want to keep in the entryway. Also, the bench is long enough so you can use this as the dropzone for large bags, but still have enough space to sit and change your shoes.
