The best decorative and quirky wall hooks for your home
Take a look at our roundup of the best decorative wall hooks the UK market has to offer
Décor details – whether it’s unusual wall art, quirky souvenirs from your travels or stylish trinkets – might seem modest, but often they're the little things that make a house feel like a home.
Decorative wall hooks, although small and usually inexpensive, don’t only serve a practical purpose, they’re also ideal for adding a bit of flair into oft-neglected little spaces. They can inject some much needed personality into new build homes, give period properties a sense of quirky character, or even function as a piece of wall art in their own right.
Whether you’re looking for somewhere to hang your coats, display your treasured jewellery collection or store your bathroom necessities, wall hooks are guaranteed to jazz up your space for a minimal price.
So, if you’re feeling inspired, read on to discover our roundup of all our quirky favourites - including novelty coat hooks, animal-inspired hooks and cute peg hooks.
