Quilts are thick and you need more than a couple of them, whether you are a family of two to four people or a bachelor. Sometimes, this makes storing them a tricky problem to solve.
If you’ve been racking your brain for solutions, we’ve got four elegant and easy quilt storage ideas right here.
Quilt Storage Ideas
1. Special Quilt Ladder
This one can be a bit tricky because it needs you to have space in your home. But the good news is that you don’t need a lot of space. Get a ladder that you are not likely to use too often and turn it into a rack for quilts.
This works because you can store the quilts in this fashion, whether you are using them or not. They look pretty cool especially if you have a bunch of quilts in different colors. Each step on the ladder can be used as a separate rack for one quilt. And you want to make sure that you don’t crowd it because heavier quilts can take down the ladder especially if the bottom of the ladder does not have a sturdy grip.
These things can be placed against a wall and the rest of the room can stay as it is. It doesn’t take a lot of work and the array of colorful quilts will look like a cool wallpaper if there isn’t one already. So, as they say, two birds.
2. Quilt Storage Basket
This one is more of a category than just one solution. There are a variety of storage baskets in the market these days exclusively for quilts. Isn’t that a gift!
For instance, Amazon has these open baskets that have multiple racks in many different colors and patterns. Each rack is meant for one quilt. And if you don’t have that many quilts, you can always use the racks on the basket for other items.
These baskets have lovely designs and frames like cupboards. All you need to do is fold the quilt like you would a regular blanket.

3. Open Container Like Laundry Basket
This one is a simpler but still a very elegant solution to your quilt storing problems. Assuming it’s a problem. You know the regular laundry basket, right? There are bigger baskets of the same kind that can be used to store quilts. Now, you need a bigger one because quilts are thicker and bigger than the rest of the items in your closet.
All you need to do is fold the quilt like a blanket and stack it up in the basket. Alternatively, you can also roll up the quilt like you would a carpet. This makes it easy to store in an open basket. It is easy and affordable all at the same time.
And you can get a basket of any size depending on the number of quilts you have. They do take up a little more space than say a quilt ladder but it still works as a storage solution.
4. Quilt Display Cabinet
If space is not an issue, here’s another cool storage solution. There are plenty of quilt display cabinets in the market precisely for this purpose. They look like regular storage cabinets and more often than not have a glass casing.
It keeps the quilts protected from atmospheric elements like dust and you can display your colorful quilts in a corner of any room. You don’t have to worry about how they fit in with the decor.
And usually, there is space on top of the cabinet to store other items like photo frames, books or other knick knacks. It does take some more space than the previous options but if you get crafty, you can use these cabinets for more than just quilts.
Some of them also have a rod inside the cabinet which means you can place hangers and store the quilts with a basic fold. What’s more, if you have space left, you can get more hangers and store blankets or clothes which makes it an extra closet in the house.
And if you get a little more creative, you can use the bottom of the cabinet to store smaller items like pillow cases by folding and stacking them down there. Typically, these cabinets have a top opening which makes it easy to access the items inside the cabinet.
To be honest, these are just starter ideas that you can build upon. And if you are not feeling as creative, you can take them at face value and start shopping right away.
All of them are available in different colors and patterns to suit the room’s decor. Just be sure to check out how not to store them too.
