Why are wicker baskets for blankets necessary?

  • Meet organizational needs: The basket can prevent other eyes from seeing inside, and keep your blanket within reach when you need it.

  • Be decorative: You can completely set the blanket basket around any spaces as a decorative item: next to the sofa, in the entryways, in the mudroom, etc.

  • Keep blankets clean: The basket is like a layer that separates the blanket from dirt. You can choose a lidded one to completely prevent dust.

  • Be multi-purpose: Not only can you use them for blanket storage, but also for pillows and throws storing, dirty clothes, and kids’ toys,...

What you should note down before purchasing a blanket storage basket

1// Material

Choosing the right blanket basket material becomes critical because it can affect the design, shape, or color of your home. You should consider your frequency of blanket use, hygroscopicity, and durability.

  • If you tend to move the blankets around frequently, you’d better choose natural fibers, textiles, or plastic. These materials are relatively lightweight for easy portability.

  • If you’re seeking something aesthetic, woven grass, fabric, and rattan materials will give you various options.

  • Consider materials with the less moldy possibility to keep your blanket clean. For this feature, metal and wood is the best choice.

  • Consider the rest of your interior to ensure the blanket basket material doesn’t go out of style.

Recently, woven baskets have been popular in the market due to their lightweight, wide range of designs, and high durability. Let’s take a look!

2// Capacity

Although the blanket is not heavy, it’s worth double-checking the dimensions, especially when you often carry a lot of blankets or pillows, or move a lot through the rooms. An interesting fact-check: Many baskets are bigger than their online store images.

Before making a purchase, be conscious of whether you want a further storage option or commit to blanket storage only. In reality, not many people open their wallets just to store a blanket. Therefore, a versatile blanket storage basket should be large enough for other storage needs, such as toys, holiday ornaments, clothes, etc.

You can roll your blankets up into bundles, and measure the size. A well-fitting basket should be as tall as the bundle to cover the blankets up.

3// Preservation

To keep your wicker baskets for blankets as well as blanket clean and durable, there are some tips here:

  • Ensure both baskets and blankets are completely dry before storing them.

  • Avoid airtight baskets as they often trap moisture and cause mold.

  • Avoid humid places such as the bathroom, carpets, or curtains, etc.

  • Vacuum and dry blanket storage basket regularly, better for once a week.

  • Choose baskets with sparse knitting lines if you store them in a closed cabinet.
