The weather is getting colder, right? It is time to make yourself warm inside your house. You must need a blanket every time now. Most people tend to store their blankets in a linen closet, but it can be hard to keep this space organized.
Keep Your Blanket Available With 8 Simple Storages
While a linen closet may be the quickest way to store your bedding, it can take up more space, cost you valuable time looking for what you need, and look unsightly. You don’t need to resort to a linen closet to store your blankets.
1. Wicker and Woven Storage Baskets
Lightweight and effortlessly decorative, wicker storage bins, hampers, and baskets are perfectly suited to store blankets and throw pillows. These bins can store folded, tightly rolled, or loosely draped blankets. Consider mixing and matching sizes and wicker patterns to boost the baskets’ decorative impact.
2. A Charming Storage Trunk
If you have many blankets in need of storage or if the blankets you want to store are on the thicker side, consider storing them in a storage trunk. Many storage trunks are characterized by charming vintage accents, like antique handles, leather buckles, and worn typographic designs. The right storage trunk can be a beautiful addition to your home’s decor while being an effective blanket storage solution.
3. A Gorgeous Blanket Ladder
These decorative ladders lean against a wall and have multiple rungs on which several blankets can be draped. Blanket ladders are perfect for keeping your favorite throws on display. Available in several wood tones and sizes, your options aren’t limited by style or capacity – no matter your decorative preferences, there’s a blanket ladder out there for you!
4. A Subtle Storage Ottoman
If you’d rather keep your blankets out of sight, think about furnishing your living room or bedroom with an ottoman that doubles as a trunk. These subtle furniture pieces conceal ample storage space within. While storage ottomans tend to be more compact and decorative, storage benches are larger and have more storage capacity.
5. A Traditional Quilt Rack
A quilt rack is another excellent choice for blanket storage if you’d like to keep your blankets within arm’s reach. These racks are self-supporting, which is extra helpful if you have children or pets who may be inclined to knock a blanket ladder over. While blanket ladders tend to be more contemporary in style, quilt racks are more traditionally designed.
6. Old-Fashioned Wall Hooks
Wall hooks are a time-tested storage solution for textiles like blankets and towels. Individual wall hooks may not have the greatest storage capacity on their own. You can install several in a very small area. Wall hooks can install almost anywhere, so depending on your preference, you can keep your blankets out on display or hang them where they can’t be seen.
7. Wire Storage Baskets
Interested in a more modern version of the wicker basket? Look for wire storage baskets instead. Just as functional and decorative as wicker bins and baskets, wire storage baskets tend to be a bit more industrial and modern in design. Plus because they’re see-through, they do a better job of showing off your stylish throws than opaque bins do.
8. Under-Couch Basket
If your storage units can’t keep all the blankets you’d like them to hold, consider equipping it with some storage baskets under the couch to fit snugly under your bed. These units are excellent for keeping your bedroom tidy without taking up valuable floor space.
