Ever wanted to finish a room off for yourself or your children? A treasure chest could be the perfect piece for your room to put toys in, bedding or even valuable jewellry if you choose a smaller one.
We have reviewed 4 different size treasure chests for you to check out, whether you want to store large items or kids toys, we have a couple for you. Or even just something to put your favourite earings or rings in, we have checked out a mini wooden treasure chest which you may just like as well.
So why treasure chests? Well, we had a huge wicker chest at the end of our bed and as we're surrounding ourselve's in ocean themed things, we thought it would be another perfect addition to get the sea look we are after. Were would a mermaid be without somewhere to store all of their scallop shell bras.
We have ranked the VidaXL as the number one and best wooden treasure chest because it's large, it has carry handles on the sides and it feels really substantial, exactly what a treasure chest should feel like.
In a close second, is the teamson pirate treasure chest. It costs the most out of the four we have reviewed, quite a bit more, so why we've put it in second and not first. But for the price, you get a really large awesome looking pirate treasure chest that would look great in any childs bedroom. It is handmade and painted with lead free paint, so you know you're getting a good product.
We still love the wood and metal treasure chest with limpits on it, its not as big as the first two but it really does look amazing. This would suit an adult or childs room as it looks so good, and you could use it to actually look items or valuables in it.
If you're after something just for valuables, you want to store jewellry, the mini wooden treasure chest by Homes on Trend could be just for you. Its a lot smaller than the other three, it would suit being on the side of a desk or your dressing table in your ocean themed bedroom.

This is a review of the VidaXL Vintage Wooden Treasure Chest
This is an attractive pretty treasure chest that is made from wood, that is dark brown almost burgandy in colour. Now this can be a plus or a minus depending on how much you were counting on it to be brown as the picture shows. It comes pre-assembled so no DIY involved and there are handles on either side to lift it. The chest actually a little lighter in weight than it looks (until it contains all your treasures!).
This treasure chest has beautiful detail and fixtures from the straps and buckle to the latch to close it. The design oozes sophitication that would suit a living room to keep blankets, magazines or books in to even using it to hold shoes in a large porch or hall way. The chest is well made but I would not like to test its strength so would not use as a seat to sit on, however it would happily hope a few cups on coasters if you need an extra coffee table too.
The treasure chest can be locked by getting a little lock to attach to your latch at the front to add a little extra mystery to your chest if you really are keeping your beloved possessions save within it. There is potential to also uses this treasure chest for children to use for toys as it is fairly robust and provides a great amount of storage however my only concern would be safety as there is no safety hinges, extra gap or slow closing lid to prevent little fingers from getting trapped.
- Attractive treasure chest

This is a very stylish, vintage treasure chest to help protect and hide away the comings and goings of our personal treasures, designed for adults in mind.
This is a review of the Fantasy Field by Teamson Pirate Treasure Chest we put it through its paces with our favourite little merboys and mer girls.
As we love our nautical themes in our house we decided to try out this lovely pirate treasure chest with visiting family who have 3 young children.
The box itself is very sturdy but not to heavy to move. It is hand painted with lead free water based paint and has wheels underneath it so it can be rolled around a room. It is designed with children in mind right down to the slow closing lid safety hinges within the box to prevent little fingers from getting caught.
The box is delivered very quickly especially if you have Amazon Prime. It comes flat pack so you need to put it together yourself, this isn't to difficult but be warned this might take a few hours! The instructions are not the most clear and I ended up using some of our own tools instead of the ones provided. Once it was altogether it looked quite a big bigger than we had invisiged but still looked absolutely great. It works well as a practical storage solution underneath its ability to encourage imagination and adventure. Inside the box is plenty of space for an array of different items. The chest is solid that if your children are to then sit on top of the box this is not going to cause any problems so in effect adds another seat to the room.
- Solid build and design
- Painted with lead free water based paints
- Designed for children in mind
- Lots of storage space
- Slow closing lid
- Colourful imagination provoking pirate designs
- Available next day delivery with Amazon Prime
- Self assembly required
- Not the clearest instructions
- Not cheap
This is a wonderfully designed storage treasure chest plenty of space, colour and is super child friendly. Just allow yourself enough time to build it before giving it as a gift.
This is a review of Thunderdog Wood and Metal Limpets Treasure Chest
This is a rustic style medium sized treasure box made using a mixture of wood and metal. The patterns on the metal and the metal limpets really give it that nautical and celtic feel.
This little box can be delivered super speedy by next day Amazon Prime, it comes fully assembled and is an eye catching design. The use of metal on the box does make the lid of the box a little heavy to lift therefore I would recommend it as an adult only box so as not to trap any little fingers accidently in the closing of it. The overall box is varnished well on the outside, this however is not followed through to the inside which lets it down if using the treasure chest to disclose a present inside. I do like the added addition of feet to this treasure chest but I would have liked to have seen them stained with the style of the rest of the chest.
The treasure chest also comes with a lock that fits over the latch it is a bit tight but does the job. The treasure chest sizes allows safe keeping of keepsakes such as letters, postcards, souvernirs, photos. I have decided that is really does suit the job as a memory box and I have happily filled it with a lot!
- Beautifully crafted
- Would suit any room
- Makes a great gift
- Make of solid strong materials
- Comes with a lock
- Available next day delivery with Amazon Prime
- Heavy lid
- Not suitable for children
This treasure box oozes nautical pirate ship theme, added with its light medium size, you could really imagine it had a previous life stowed away in the captains room on a beautiful old wooden ship only for a mermaid to come on board, swipe it and jump back into the depths of the ocean (hence all the beautiful limpets on it).
This is a review of the Homes on Trend Mini Wooden Treasure Chest, we look at how well a Mini package such as this holds up.
This is a very teeny weeny little treasure chest, do not be deceived into think it is any bigger than 10cm x 5.5cm x 6cm because it isn't. As long as you are aware that it is really that small you will not be dissapointed with what you received.
The treasure chest is made from wood and has a design of an old vintage map on the lid, my treasure chest did have a different map to what I expected so I guess each chest sent out does not have the same map design. The quality of the box is a little rough in places but it gives the essence of a rugged lost on an island treasure chest.
Despite its size I have come up with a list here of the mirage of ways I have used this mini treasure
chest since I received it
- Holding keys in the hallway
- Giving my partner cuff links as a gift
- Taking jewellery in on a weekend away
- Placing on the pillow of our guests bed to house a gift of small chocolates in
- Leaving a note in for my partner when I have got out
So really this little treasure chest has brought happiness mainly as a trinket holder and gift provider.
- Very cute and compact
- Map design on the top
- Large statement latch on the front
- Great for containing small gifts and jewellery
- Photos do not fully show its size correctly
- Very minimal storage space
If you are looking for a treasure chest for storage look elsewhere. This mini treasure chest is very much all about the miniature in life, if you have small crafts, trinkets or love to give family and friends gifts this a lovely treasure chest.
