Sitting squarely at the intersection of utility and aesthetics- decorative boxes function not only as a chic way to store clutter, but also help elevate your interior décor. Something as simple as a wooden jewelry box can add an interesting element and function as the cherry on top of a well-curated space. Here are five simple ways to incorporate decor boxes in your home for a comprehensive, fuss-free, elegant look!
Tips To Utilize Decorative Boxes:
Chuck the Clutter
You can use decor boxes for many purposes- whether it is to store away tiny trinkets and other memorabilia, or place objects you use daily in a more organized, appealing manner.
For example, you can opt for a classy black marble octagonal box to store salt shakers and other condiments together on the dining table. Not only does it add an extra element that makes your dining table look more visually appealing, but it also makes the objects placed inside easily accessible and easy to find! No more knocking over salt and pepper shakers when passing food across the table or going to the kitchen every time someone asks for sugar- all will be within your arm’s reach. As a bonus, you get additional storage space too! A win-win situation for sure.
If the thought of sifting through a million opaque storage boxes sends you into a state of panic- opt for transparent ones made out of glass! Store tiny trinkets and arrange them in glass boxes to create elegant arrangements. Place anything you wish to showcase in a glass box- perhaps shells you collected from a Goa trip long ago, or small delicate trinkets you love! Combining textures will lend a beautiful contrast to your décor and showcase how much thought, intent, and creativity was put into both the big and small details. You could even use them to store jewelry! Organizing jewelry in glass boxes helps keep it safe and easy to sift through whenever you need to find a particular piece. If you’re someone who always ends up creating a mess in your attempts to find the perfect accessory to go with your outfit- this will be a lifesaver.
For jewelry prone to tarnishing, pick a wooden box with smooth, lint-free lining inside to avoid scratches and any chances of discoloring. The wood provides insulation against moisture, but it also slows down the oxidization of metals- therefore functioning as the safest option to store your jewelry in and increasing its lifespan considerably.
However, always utilize glass boxes in places you’re confident they’ll not get knocked off the surface. Exercise extra caution if you keep one on top of your bedside drawers- an awry hand searching for something absent-mindedly could easily send the box crashing into smithereens. Tired of constantly searching for remotes for the TV or AC, or phone charger? Keep them all in an elegant, spacious box near your bed.
A Pop of Colour!
Use decorative boxes to provide a pop of color wherever required! A cute, kitschy colored box placed upon your nightstand adds character and cheer, and also functions as the perfect place to keep things that often get lost- like medicines, rings, dainty earrings and rings, spectacles taken off before falling asleep- etc. You could either incorporate colors that coordinate with the rest of your décor, or introduce a new element to spice things up! It is scientifically proven that small bursts of color cause a significant boost in one’s overall mood, and colorful decorative storage boxes are a fun way to make something mundane look much livelier.
You could take it up a notch and opt for décor boxes with a marble print in bright shades, or even boxes with geometric patterns to add a different spin and introduce a new aspect to your interior décor. Playing around with patterns, prints, and colors will create a wide variety of small, thoughtful elements and make your space look more vibrant and cohesive. Introduce elements like lamps, photo frames, vases, and small quirky decorative objects alongside decorative boxes in any space to liven things up!
You can use décor boxes for numerous purposes beyond storage. For example, they can even be used to create terrariums! Get a box of your choice- we recommend glass boxes, layer pebbles, charcoal (only if you intend on keeping the lid of the box closed, otherwise skip the charcoal), potting soil, then plant your favorite plants- and boom! You have created a terrarium! Perfect for displaying indoors, this is just one of many, many possibilities that exist for using décor boxes in a creative manner.
You could even personalize decorative boxes to create stunning art pieces. Use paint and let your creativity flow. For example- with glass paints, grab a glass box and create a design you love. Fill it in with colors of your choice and let it dry to create a bespoke, one-of-a-kind piece made by you, ideal for putting on display in any corner of the house!
When utilizing décor boxes for storage, always keep utility in mind. Stackable boxes are a great option especially if you’re experiencing a space crunch. Go for boxes with a flat top and bottom to make sure you can place them on top of each other even in a limited amount of space.
Keep in mind that the shape of your box dictates the space it’ll offer! Classic shapes like square, circles or rectangle offer more space than unusual shapes and are a better option if you require more room to keep objects there. Get a box with a lock to protect it against nosy children or snooping eyes.
