Blankets are an essential part of every movie night—they create the quintessential cozy atmosphere and prevent you from getting chilly on a wintry night. The only problem? They’re often haphazardly thrown on your floor, couch, or bed afterward. Plus, in the springtime, when they’re less likely to be used, you want an attractive way to store your blankets. Luckily for us, there are plenty of ways to store them in a visually appealing and space-saving way.
Whether you’re looking to aesthetically throw them over a ladder, give them a designated woven basket in your living room, or hide them in an ottoman, you’ll find a way that you love to store them. Here are 10 products that’ll help you store your blankets for spring and summer.
