Living Room Blanket Storage Ideas

We change out our couch, chair, and recliner blanket throws for each season. We have bed and couch throws for football and baseball season, Christmas, winter, and summer. Having a place to store them 9 months out of the year is just as crucial to us as having the right method to store them while using them each season.

Blankets and throws often end up draped over the back of a couch or chair in the living room. This is not always stylish or functional for people wanting to sit without a blanket or throw in the way. This review article looks at many excellent ways to store blankets when you’re not using them.

Draping a blanket over the sofa is probably the most well-known and most used way to store blankets. The blankets do not need to be folded to look beautiful. Draping a blanket over the sofa more casually really helps to make things feel less polished and cozier

8 Blanket Storage Ideas & Best Seller Reviews

No matter where you live or what time of year it is, everybody has extra throw blankets around their house. Finding a beautiful and practical way to store these blankets around your home can be a bit tough.

Here we will share some other creative ways to store blankets around your home that are practical and useful yet still beautiful.

Blanket Storage Ladder

You can build one yourself very quickly with some 2″ x 2″ pieces of wood, a saw, glue, and screws. You can also craft one by taking a vintage rung ladder with some character (patina) and removing every other rung.

The more popular option is to buy a blanket storage ladder that adds character for stunning living room blanket storage ideas or bedroom blanket storage.

A great way to display and store throws and blankets is with a decorative blanket storage ladder. These types of ladders can also be used to store other items as well. Place them against any wall where you have space.  Not only can you store your blankets but really display them creatively and beautifully.

Wicker Blanket Storage

Blanket storage baskets made of wicker might just be my favorite of all blanket storage ideas. A simple but effective solution simply because of the ease and elegance they can add to any room.

A nice big wicker basket adds some great texture to any space and can easily hold two or three blankets. Not only is it super easy to grab a blanket when you want one, but best of all it’s, easy for everybody else to put them away.

You can keep the wicker blanket storage basket in the corner of the room. When needed, toss the blanket into it with the added benefit of not needing to fold the throw or blanket.

Decorative Blanket Storage

Some people do not like the look or feel of wicker. Using roping for blanket storage ideas is not only fun but a good option as it will not separate, fray, or fall apart.

Most rope baskets fall under the category of decorative blanked storage. You can choose from many different styles and colors to blend the baskets well with your decor and personal preferences.

Blanket Storage Bench and Blanket Storage Trunk

Blanket storage benches are a great way to store your blankets when going unused. The benches, which often have a lift-up lid or drawers, make it easy to access the blankets when needed.

They are ideal if you have a space in a hallway, entryway, or under a window that needs seating and storage.

Most tables have a metal basket below the hardtop. The tables with lift-off tops are better suited if you want to display blankets or throws. They are backward if you wish to use them frequently as you can’t store things on the tabletop.

Blanket Storage Bag – Blanket Storage Box

People searching for a blanket storage box often end up buying a blanket storage bag. This is because of the flexibility of a bag, especially when not in use. I would recommend choosing a fabric storage bag or box over one made of plastic which is easier to rip or tear.

You want a bag or box that promotes ventilation and protects your blankets while being stored. Get one with steel two-way zippers as this allows you to easily open and close regardless of how full the bag is.

Under Bed Blanket Storage

Under-bed blanket storage enables you to give your room a clean, uncluttered look. These storage units are sometimes called blanket storage boxes.

They are perfect for putting away things lying around or out-of-season items from blankets and pillows to out-of-season clothes.

Look for under-bed blanket storage containers with sturdy construction, heavy-duty zippers, and strong handles on all sides of the container.

Vacuum Seal Blanket Storage Bags

Vacuum bags increase your storage space without you having to clean out your closet.

For blankets and comforters, choose the extra-large or jumbo bags for greater ease of use.

They work in perfect harmony with the other blanket storage ideas by compressing the smallest size items.

Look for ones that are double zip sealed or, even better, triple zip sealed. Note, They do not work well for king-sized bedding.

Researching and reviewing these eight blanket storage ideas was fun. I discovered some new designs and options along with some great new ideas! My friend has a summer cottage in Michigan, and I have a few new gift ideas too.
