Themed decorative boxes - Stackable boxes for you

If you need a few storage boxes of different sizes, themed decorative boxes are what you need. You get a few boxes (usually 6) that are very similar to one another. You can fill them with your storage or just treat them as a d├ęcor. That's perfectly up to you. If you want the boxes to occupy little room when they aren't in the limelight, make sure that those themed decorative boxes are stackable.

Decorative wooden storage boxes with lids - Buy an unfinished storage box and make it unique!

Sometimes you know exactly how a decorative storage box you need should look like. Why search for hours if you can buy an unfinished storage box and embellish it yourself? You can paint it, add some ribbons, stains, maybe a few personal photos. That way you can make this storage box unique and be sure that no one else has a similar one. If you want to make a special storage box then unfinished storage boxes are a great thing to begin with. They are cheap and you can be sure that the box itself is solid.


Tips on buying decorative storage boxes with lids

Things you should consider

If you like the looks of a certain decorative storage container, that doesn't necessarily mean that that's the box you're looking for. You need to consider a few things before you can make the purchase. If you won't do that, you might end up with a beautiful storage box and no place where you can place it. I assume that's not what you want.

  • What will be stored in the box
  • Of course you need to choose different kind of box if you'd like to store there photos than if you'd like to store there spices. That's pretty obvious.
  • In which room the box will be used
  • Size and shape of the box
  • The decorative box should have appropriate size and shape so you'll be able to place it in the destined location.
  • Color/theme of the box
  • You want to be sure whether the looks of the box match the color and theme of the room in which the box will be stored.
  • Material of the box
  • You should decide whether the material of the box needs to be durable, or not. If you have kids and the box will be within their reach, there is a possibility, that they will accidentally throw it on the floor. You can choose for example a cardboard storage box or plastic box, it's entirely up to you..
  • Price of the box
  • You can buy a decorative storage box with lid for under $20 as well as for above $500. That depends on how much money you plan to spend on the box. If you want to buy an affordable decorative storage box you should definitely check out some online auctions and online stores like Amazon and Ebay.

      My favourites are usually the leatherette storage boxes because they are the most wipeable whilst still being stylish.
