Buying Guide

Cedar storage chests are traditionally built to store thick woolen fabrics. Why? Cedar wood naturally repels moths, and moths like to chew holes in woolen fabrics. As thick woolen blankets and sweaters are an investment, it’s worth to protect that investment from moths by putting those pieces in a place where they’re unlikely to be exposed to moth activity.

That said, if you have a beautiful and traditional piece like a cedar chest, fill it with whatever you have in your home that needs to be stored! Blankets and sweaters are traditional, but games or books would also be a good idea.

The key to the perfect sized cedar storage chest to be used as a bed foot bench, is for it to be three quarters of the total length of the bed. For example, if you have a king size bed that is 76 inches wide, the storage chest should be around 57 to 60 inches long. In terms of the height, it should be a couple of inches shorter than the bed or footboard.
