Thanks to its central position on top of one of the main pieces of furniture in your bedroom, a jewelry box can be one of the first items to catch your eye: you definitely don't want it to look out of place! At the same time, it fulfills the important task of taking care of your most precious belongings, so durability and functionality are also vital things to consider.
Let's see what exactly you should keep in mind in order to choose a jewelry box that matches your bedroom as well as your practical needs.
How Big Should a Jewelry Box Be?
As small or big as you need it to be! It all depends on how many pieces of jewelry you already own and whether you plan on buying many more (be honest!). Making an inventory is also useful to determine how many of each type of items you own:
- Lots of rings? Make sure you look for one that includes many ring slots, or else it'll be just as messy as not having a dedicated box for them;
- Lots of bracelets and bangles? Then you need many small drawers, a compartmentalized tray or a box that offers plenty of room in its main compartment for stiffer pieces that don't fold (e.g. wooden or metal cuffs);
- Lots of necklaces? Look for a large box where you can hang them or place them without damaging them or getting them tangled; if you have many long necklaces, you might want to consider a jewelry armoire instead.
