No cozy living room is complete without a collection of throw blankets. But while it's great to cuddle up under a soft blanket to watch a movie, what are we to do with the multitude of blankets that seem to quickly pile up on every surface when not in use? Sure, you could buy a giant basket or trunk for storing your cozies, but that requires giving up precious real estate within the room.

Fortunately, TikTok has come to our rescue once more with a chic, modern, and inexpensive solution for blanket storage: towel bars. TikTokker @Kris_Buckhout chronicled her quest for throw blanket storage, depicting her solution of hanging towel bars in a ladder-like configuration on her living room wall. If you'd like to try this storage method for your own blankets, all you'll need is one 24-inch towel bar for every two to three throw blankets (depending on how large your blankets are and how you plan to fold them), a level, a drill, and a screwdriver. 

How to use towel bars for throw blanket storage

Creating your own blanket storage solution with towel bars is simple and easy. All you need to do is install two or more towel bars on your wall in a vertical row using the included instructions and hardware. Be sure to leave a couple of feet between each bar to prevent excessive overlapping. While the towel bars featured in @Kris_Buckhout's TikTok video are "under $25 each," you can also find bars for a much lower price.

If you're willing to swap the sophisticated brass finish featured in the video for a modern matte black stainless steel, you can snag some KLJKPA towel bars for just $8.99 each on Amazon. That means nearly double the towel bars for the same price. No matter how many throw blankets you own, you'll never need to dig through a bottomless pile to find your favorite lounging cozy lounging companion again.
