1. A Blanket Ladder

A ladder is an great way to display blankets. Here is an easy and low cost DIY blanket ladder from Remodelaholic.

2. Display Cabinet

If you have vintage quilts or blankets made of beautiful textiles that you want to show off, using re-purposed furniture is a way to elevate your storage. A china cabinet becomes a great blanket display case. Or a up-cycled armoire with the drawers removed, can showcase a collection. Even a console table, can hold several blankets while also keeping them nearby the place they will be used.

3. On the Back of the Door

Another thing to keep handy is baby blankets. It seems you can never have too many. Due to their small size, simply roll them up, and slide them into an inexpensive shoe organizer (like this) hung over the closet door in the nursery. The clear pockets allow each blanket to be visible, and they are conveniently kept in one place until needed.


Store baby blankets and/or burp cloths in a shoe organizer on the back of the door. Why did I not think of that?!?


This is another idea on how to store blankets on a door. Just add a row of towel racks down the vertical space of the door to keep everything organized and minimize storage space. (via)

4. Out of Sight

While displaying blankets is always an option, sometimes you might want to tuck these away out of sight. A headboard can keep blankets in a convenient compartment (via). Or a built in storage space in  a wall could be the perfect solution. Ottomans with lids are always something that can work out especially a DIY one with both a storage space and wheels to easily move it to where it is most needed.

  1. Love all the ideas for blanket storage especially the blanket ladder. I didn’t realize how many of those ideas I have been using. That being said, I decided I have to many blankets for 2 people. I went through and took 10 blankets to the mens mission and they were thrilled. And recently I took 5 more to my veterinarians office along with 6 towels that were gathering dust. The vet was happy to have the blankets and towels. My next bunch is going to the dog shelter!!
    However it would be hard to part with all those beautiful quilts..

    1. What a great idea and very generous of you, Cathy! Decluttering and then organizing what you have left is the best <3
