Generally positioned at the foot of the bed, the blanket box is an often forgotten member of the bedroom furniture family but is just the ticket for toy, pillow, cushion and blanket storage.
Below we explain all the features to look out for when exploring our selection.
Spoilt for choice? Hopefully our guide will help you find the look you’re after.
Our products come in various kinds of wood. Different woods can be used to create different looks.
There are practical considerations when it comes to materials, too. For example, a wooden blanket box may come with a slow close lid for safety, but the weight of your chosen wood can also help protect little fingers and thumbs – as well as grown-up ones!
A pine blanket box will be easier to open because pine is a lighter wood, making it good choice for children’s rooms. Pine is especially good for staining to darker, richer and more interesting finishes.
If you’d rather have something extra sturdy, an oak blanket box like the Kingsley will be heavier and even more robust than pine. Oak will often feature a clear lacquer, oiled or waxed finish, showcasing the natural beauty of the woodgrain.
Which finish will best match your existing décor?
Blanket boxes would look pretty dull without some expert craftsmanship to give them their own style and identity. Here are the main features you’re likely to notice in our selection.
A great way to “break up” the sides of a blanket box is panelling.
The edge profile on the lid of the blanket box also provides a bit of extra flair. There are plenty of edge profiles out there, but some of the most common are listed below.
