What is the best height to hang a coat rack?
Choosing the Height. Installed at 5 feet on a wall, the average adult and a school-aged child are able to reach the hooks on a wall-mounted rack. This height, adjusted slightly up or down as needed allows plenty of hanging space beneath the coats as well, to ensure that even a long coat does not touch the floor.

How far apart do you hang coat hooks?

How do you hang a coat hanger on a wooden board?
Cut 1 wooden arm of each coat hanger off, just to 1 side of the hook. Screw the hangers to a wooden board with the cut sides flat against the board and the remaining arms facing upwards, so the hooks are facing downwards.
