All About Blanket Boxes
Blanket boxes have been around for many years and they’re still a definite favourite in our homes today, probably because they’re just so useful! As soon as the first hints of spring emerge, we start packing away all our cosy throws that have served us through winter, ready for the sunny days ahead.
Our Oak Blanket Boxes come in all shapes, sizes and finishes – but don’t be tricked into thinking they’re just for blankets. You’ll discover these versatile items can be used in just about every room in your home, in all kinds of ways.
If you’ve got little ones running around the house, a blanket box is an ideal place to stash all their toys and games. Plus it will make clearing up easy peasy at the end of the day. Even better, a blanket box will look equally at home in the nursery, a corner of the kitchen or even centre-stage in the living room.
If you want nothing more than having all at your fingertips and truly get a buzz from seeing your papers in neatly organised divisions, you’ll love this idea. With a few simple additions, your blanket box can become a home office, complete with a notice board and hanging files.
If you’re the crafty type and are continually looking for places to stash your knitting, needlepoint or sewing equipment. Let a blanket box come to your liberation. It’s roomy enough to store all of your yarn, and could even be used to present some of your handmade items.
Dressing Up Box
For those kids who adore dressing up, there’s nothing better than digging through a box full of hats, scarfs, coats and other bits. Whether you pack your blanket box with fairy tale costumes or pieces you’ve picked up at the car boot sales.
If you require a coffee table in your living room, a blanket box will do the job flawlessly. What’s more, there’s loads of room inside to keep all your books, magazine and bits and pieces stored away easily – or just thrown in quickly when guests arrive unexpectedly.
If you’re fortunate enough to have a guest room or even a sofa bed in the downstairs space, a blanket box is just what you require to store all your spare duvets, pillows and linen. And when your guests leave, you can return it all freshly laundered so it’s ready for your next lovely guests.
If you still keep all your cherished memory bits, baby’s first shoes or family photo, keep them all secure and organised in a blanket box. Then when you fancy a trip down memory lane, it will be all there waiting for you.
If your blanket box is looking a bit weathered, why not treat yourself to a new one from our extensive oak ranges and put the old one in the garden? Blanket boxes are excellent for storing the outdoor toys, gardening equipment or even bbq utensils.
