Blanket Storage Ideas that are Practical!
Worried about clutter from blankets all over the place this winter?
Or are you thinking about how to store them once winter is over?
We’ve got you covered with several blanket storage ideas that are practical.
I like having lots of blankets nearby in the winter, so that when we cozy up on the couch for a movie or to read, everyone can grab their favorite blanket to stay warm. I have a big basket of blankets near the couch, but once the weather is warm, I like to clear out the space and store them in storage bags up in the closet.
Either way, there are ideas for everyone below! Take a look! 👀⬇️

FAQ’s on Blanket Storage ideas:
There are several great blanket storage options above – but if you are trying to store lots and lots of blankets, I definitely recommend using the vacuum storage bags (#10) and then putting those into zipper storage bags (#3).
If you don’t have a closet, utilize furniture that can double as blanket storage – ottomans that open and coffee tables with space below are great options. Otherwise, look for space that you already have (back of the door, under the bed, etc.) and store blankets there!
No one wants their blankets to become smelly or damaged in storage, so the most important thing is the climate you are storing them in. Store in a cool, dry place. Place dryer sheets between layers of bedding, then use a vacuum bag to keep bedding fresh.
