Blanket boxes are normally placed at the foot of the bed, or
elsewhere in the bedroom. They can, however, be used in other
rooms as storage or as tables.
The traditional function of a blanket box is, as its name
suggests, to store blankets and other bedding. However, blanket
boxes can be used to store all sorts of other things too,
including clothes, shoes, books and DVDs.
If you’re going to be taking things in and out of your
blanket box all the time, you probably won’t want to display
anything on top of it. However, some people choose to leave the
box empty, place it at the bottom of the bed, and use it as a

form of storage. It can be used in any room in the home to store
Having a blanket box at the foot of your bed gives the whole
room a homely, traditional touch.
Blanket boxes come in a variety of shapes and sizes. PineSolutions has smaller boxes, like this one from the range, and larger ones, such as this one from the Camden range. Most blanket boxes are rectangular in shape, but we also have a few square ones, including this one from our Segusino Mexican collection.
Here’s what you should bear in mind when choosing a
