A storage ottoman is a clever way to store your blankets, as the storing space inside does not affect its original function.
This hidden storage spot will definitely make you save space and keep your living room organized. Also, think about using an ottoman on wheels; this way, you can always move it easily from one place to another without difficulties.
Storing blankets in a wicker chest is so beautiful and will add a bohemian touch to your living room.
It is also very practical as you can use it as a side table which is going to make the most of the space in your living room, especially if you have a small one.
Another storage, as well as decorative idea, are wicker baskets.
You can either place your blankets next to the couch to keep them accessible whenever you need one or put them under your coffee table in order to save more space in your living room.
You can also use a wire basket if you want to show off your blankets.
This makes a very minimalist addition to your living room, especially if your blankets’ colors are neutral.
One of the most original ways to store blankets and add a decorative touch to your living room at the same time is using a blanket ladder.
This is the perfect way of storing blankets if their colors go well with the rest of your furniture.
First, you need to free some space to lean your ladder against the wall.
Then, you just have to fold your blankets in order to prevent them from touching the floor, and hang them on the ladder. You can even DIY the ladder and build it yourself.
Coat racks/ Hooks
Hanging your blankets on hooks or coat racks are another way to show them off, but this only works for lightweight cotton blankets. Be careful not to let them hang for a long time on the hooks as it can ruin the fabric.
You get the idea; we are fond of multipurpose furniture as they serve their original purpose and allow you to have extra storage space. Not only that, but they also help change your home decor with the simplest tips.
These ideas are very simple and easy to realize, they will keep your living room looking cozy and tidy, and they will keep your blankets fresh and clean.
It is true that the blankets will still have dust on since they are exposed (except using the storage ottoman and wicker chest), which is why we recommend not leaving them hanging around in the same spot for a long time.
Keeping them in the open is actually a good thing, as it will allow them to get enough airflow and will prevent them from any bad musty smells they can develop.
And finally, if you find yourself having a really small space and displaying your blankets is not an option, you can always use blanket bags to protect your blankets and hide them in your bedroom closet or under your bed.
