Metal Trunks Are The Perfect Kids Storage Solution

Nothing new about this one.  These metal trunks have certainly been around for a while. The thing is they’re just really, really good – robust and made in gorgeous colours – a rarity on both fronts in the world of children’s storage.

Above are two trunks I bought for the children last year from la Redoute during one of their mega discount days. One is now stuffed full of dressing up clothes and the other is full of what Benjamin likes to call his ‘hard toys’ (If it’s an animal that flies, swims or walks on this planet then we’ve got it let me tell you).

Hooray for La Redoute there’s another 40% discount running on all homeware with the code BIG40

My other favourite metal trunks (which are also currently conveniently discounted) are from Habitat. I spotted this grey one in store the other day. It’s a really nice warm taupey grey which looks great paired with the galvanised metal one.

One word of advice: learn from my mistake and do check the dimensions so that you order the correct size if you’re planning on storing them under a bed 😉
