Hats might be dispensable. But, if you look for something that can perfect your OOTD, hats would be your best bet. If you are looking for smart ways to organize your hats, check out these 9 spectacular hat rack ideas that will help you keep the clutter at bay.
1. Sporty Hat Racks for Boys
Your bedroom has to embody who you are and what you like doing. And to make it happen, you can design the décor conscientiously.
If you are a baseball player who is always crazy about baseball stuff, you need to consider this hat rack idea. All you need to do is just getting a baseball bat and cut it in half. Drill some holes for the dowels, then attach the baseball bat on the wall.
Now you have a super cool rack for your caps. It is cheap and easy to make. Even you can make it yourself.
2. Repurposing Stainless Steel Spoons
Making an impressive hat rack does not have to make you short on cash. It does not have to gobble up your valuable time, either. Even you can find great material to make a multifunctional rack right in your kitchen.
Now make a run to your kitchen and get some spoons. Yes! Who would have guessed spoons can make a pretty good hat rack?
To make a rack out of a spoon is just a piece of cake. You just need to bend the spoon so it forms a hook. Screw the spoon to the wall, and you are good to go.
You can include them in your mudroom makeover project because they are quite fruitful. They will not only hold your caps but also your coats perfectly.
3. Hanging Hat Rack
Are you looking for a simple DIY hat rack idea? Try this one out.
These racks are made of wood planks that have been painted black. A screw eye hook is installed onto each of the planks, allowing the plank to hold on tightly to the chain.
Some clothespins are attached to each plank. They enable you to hold your caps in place. To bring harmony – or maybe camouflage – you can paint the clothespins the same color as the plank.
You can hang these racks on the wall, or – even better – over your closet’s door or bedroom’s door so you can save more space.
4. Sporty Rack for Caps
As a baseball player, you must have plenty of balls. And, maybe, you do not use a few of them anymore. Do not throw them away! You can still upcycle and turn them into a brand-new item – a hat rack.
Instead of hooks, these balls work like a charm. They not only hold your caps in place but also adorn your room well.
Although they are just balls arranged on a wood plank, they can still add charm to your bedroom or mudroom.
- If you are not using your rack, the balls can embellish your plain wall well.
- You need to collect some unused balls which is quite hard to do.
5. Colorful Hat Rack
Do you think your plain wall is a bit bland? Try perking it up with this colorful hat rack. It is definitely easy to make and will not burn a hole in your pocket.
You can make this rack out of some wood planks and paint them the colors of your choice before assembling the pieces. Or, you can get a wooden pallet and paint them the colors of rainbows, then add some hooks before hanging it on the wall.
If you are going to make this hat rack out of a wooden pallet, you have to paint each plank carefully. You can use painter tape or anything that can cover the other planks so the paint will not splash onto them.
- Making a hat rack from a wooden pallet will save your time.
- Wooden pallet is the best choice if you are not really good at carpentry.
- Painting the wooden pallet will be more difficult than wood planks that have not been assembled yet.
6. Flip Down Wooden Dowel Hat Rack
This multifunctional hat rack would be your greatest DIY project. When you are not using it, you can fold the dowels upwards to create a great adornment for your wall. And if you need it to hold your coats or hats, just flip the dowels downwards. As simple as that.
All you need to do is just getting some dowels, cut the angles, drill each dowel to allow the rod to connects them, and hang the rack on the wall. Easy peasy, right?
7. Pegboard Hat Rack
You can harness the versatility of a pegboard and make it a nice hat rack that can hold your hats, coats, scarves, or even purses. Just hang a wooden pegboard in your mudroom and add some wooden dowels as the hooks that hold your hats firmly.
8. Hat Racks for All
Keep things personal is a great way to show what you are really into. Therefore, you cannot just make a hat rack for all of your family members as they do not share the same interest. Try these hat racks out, instead!
These hat racks denote what the family members are into. The dad likes hunting, the son likes baseball while the daughter is into softball. Paint the racks their favorite colors and do not forget to put their name on each rack.
9. Industrial Hanger Idea
A steampunk style can be somewhat cool. If you want to add the touch of this style, but you do not want to go overboard, either, try making a piping hat rack just like this one.
