Expandable racks have been helping people get organized for many years - working well for coats, hats and other stuff, too. If you'd like something other than the basic wood ones, you're in luck. Here are just some of the options.
Topdeq sells this aluminum expandable coat rack, made by pieperconcept. Update on Sept. 14, 2010: Topdeq no longer has a U.S. web site, but it does sell in many European countries. I've linked to the the French site.
You can get a stainless-steel over-door expandable rack from The Container Store or from Unica Home, among others. (The Unica Home one is identified as coming from Blomus, but I can't find it on the Blomus web site. Strange.) Update on Sept. 8, 2009: Neither The Container Store nor Unica Home seem to have this product any more.
Land of Nod sells accordion peg racks in a few different colors.
And I was delighted to find this expandable hat and coat rack made from barnwood and vintage wooden bobbins, from Heritage Salvage. Update on Sept. 14, 2010: I'm no longer seeing this product on the Heritage Salvage web site.
