Matching Blanket Boxes
Complement your bed frame with one of our benches or matching blanket boxes, perfect for storing away extra cushions, blankets and bits and bobs at the bottom of the bed. Browse our collection or read on at the bottom for more information and tips.
The benefits of matching blanket boxes
Matching blanket boxes typically sit at the end of your bed frame and, as the name suggests, are made to match your bed. They’re upholstered in the same material as your bed, so you don’t need to worry about finding the perfect blanket box for your chosen colour scheme.
As well as the aesthetics, one of the main benefits of a matching blanket box is the storage solutions they offer. You can tuck away extra bedding, shoes, and clothes to leave your bedroom tidy and clutter free. Therefore, blanket boxes are a practical solution for homes where space is at a premium, as they offer another place to store your items without taking up much floor space. Finally, our matching blanket boxes come with a hinged lid, so you can quickly hide away any mess if unexpected guests come to visit.
How big is a blanket box?
Before buying a blanket box, it’s important to check you have enough room to accommodate it. Most blanket boxes have a width of 100-150cm which is in line with the width of an average double bed, meaning it can blend in with a double bed frame perfectly.
The average height and depth of a blanket box is 40-50cm tall, so you’re sure to be able to fit plenty in your matching blanket box.
Where can a blanket box go?
Typically, a matching blanket box is placed at the foot of the bed, meaning you can easily grab anything in the middle of the night. However, the options are limitless, and it really depends on the space you have available and what you intend to store in your blanket box. For example, if you intend to use your blanket box for toy storage, it might be best in the living room or your child’s bedroom. Or if you fill your blanket box with clothes it might be suited to being nearer your wardrobe or in a dressing room.
What can you store in a blanket box?
Again, blanket boxes are a great place to store anything, from clothing to everyday clutter. Popular uses for blanket boxes include housing towels, cushions, and bed sheets.
Blanket boxes also make good toy boxes. Using blanket boxes for your children’s toys also teaches them independence and organisation, as they can easily operate the lid themselves and keep their bedroom neat and tidy.
How to choose your matching blanket box
When choosing your matching blanket box, it’s important to look at the size of the box and the floor space you have available. While a large blanket box offers extra storage for items, it’ll also make a small room look more crowded, so choose accordingly and consider how much you’re likely to place inside the blanket box.
Lastly, it’s obviously important to look at the décor and colour of your bedroom furniture and match your blanket box accordingly. For example, consider whether you’d like a vintage blanket box or something a little more modern.
Matching blanket boxes are easy because you can find one that’s identical to the fabric of your bed. We have a range of fabrics and colours available, including leather, faux leather, and velvet finish – you’re sure to find a blanket box that complements your bedroom.
If you can’t find a blanket box that matches your bed frame, we have many neutral colours that’ll blend in nicely, from light shades through to darker hues.
