Okay, so your sister is a fan of the country look for her decor, but you're thoroughly modern. Need something to hang your clothes or coat on that's unobtrusive, inexpensive, and lightweight? Go for a white coat rack.

You can go for the wall mounted or freestanding variety, and both have advantages. Wall mounted coat racks are great for small spaces that don't have a lot of floor space. Just about any free wall space will do; additionally, if the coat rack is white and your wall is also painted white, it will blend in visually with the wall color. In addition, wall coat racks can be adjusted for the height of the user. Some coat racks are designed to be hung off the backs of doors and do not require any special tools for installation.

Freestanding coat racks are great for those with enough floor space, and additionally, they can be moved wherever you need them or stored out of the way.

White coat racks are great for a clean, simple, modern look. You can buy a wooden coat rack and paint it white, or use a metal one. Whatever material you use, though, white is a great color for a clean, simple look that will be unobtrusive and will fit in with any decor.

If you're really a fan of wooden coat racks but you don't have the funds or simply don't want to buy a new one, check out your elderly relatives' attics, estate sales, and even garage sales for one. Although popular at the turn of last century when closet space was not as prominent or accepted a storage option, coat racks took a backseat to closets and even nearly disappeared, when closets became the rage. Therefore, sometimes they can be had for very little money, but are very good quality if you find them in such places.

If you find a wooden coat rack that you would like to paint white, you can either strip it down or simply apply a court of primer and paint over it. Spray paint often offers the smoothest and best option for application versus brush painting, and you'll have no brushes to clean afterwards.

Whatever you choose, white coat racks will fit in with any decor and will give you a clean, simple look that will blend in to your surroundings.
