Winter is the best time to take a break, turn on Netflix and cozy up with a soft blanket (or two). As an avid cuddler, I have many different blankets—some match my decor perfectly, while others I keep mainly because they’re super cozy. Whether you love to display your blankets around the house or keep them hidden, there are tons of winter blanket storage ideas to help you keep your home both cozy and tidy.
Finding places to store blankets can be difficult, because you want them to be both easily accessible as well as easy to put up when you’re not using them. Throwing winter blankets into a linen closet isn’t always the best (or cutest) storage idea. I end up stuffing towels, blankets and sheets onto the shelves, and things inevitably either fall out when I open the door or get hidden behind piles of things I, of course, don’t need in the moment. Cozy blankets should always be on-hand and ready to snug.
To help keep us all organized (with easy access to winter blankets), I’ve found a slew of different ways to store blankets when you’re not cuddled up in them. Some display the blankets for all to see (the best use for your cute ones) while others hide them (the best use for your less-cute-but-super-cozy blankets). From ladders to storage ottomans, there are a myriad of options for you to keep your home clean and your favorite blanket within reach.
