DIY home improvement is great in theory, but when we come up a bit short on things like skill, time and money it’s nice to know something as simple as a decorative wall hook can make a world of difference.
That may sound a bit dramatic, but if it does it may be because you’ve never thought about how many places, and in how many different ways, this little contraption is willing to work for you. For example, you can put wall hooks …
… under your kitchen cabinets.
This is a fantastic place for wall hooks. Depending on the size – and there are many – you can hang pots, pans, kitchen utensils, dishtowels, potholders, potpourri bags and anything else you might find useful.
… on your kitchen island.
Of course, you don’t want to turn your island into an irate porcupine, with hooks bristling in every direction, but a hook here and there can really amplify the utility of the space. Plus, you can always control the profile by choosing hooks that are flusher with the island surface.
… near your bar stools.
You ever been in one of those old, classy bars that have the hooks underneath the lip of the bar for your bag or your jacket? These may be called purse hooks in specialty stores, but low-profile wall hooks can work just as well.
… under the bathroom mirror.
This works especially well if you have a low-hanging vanity design with a decorative edge. That way, no one can even see the hooks unless you have something dangling there – a convenient place to hang jewelry or a handbag while you use the sink.
… anywhere else you want.
Some people may say there are rules and limits, but as long as you’ve got a wall hook and a need to hang something you can rest assured you’re in charge of your next DIY adventure.
