Linen Crate Subscription Box Review & Coupon – June 2015
Linen Crate is a new subscription box for home goods (mostly linens). Each box is themed to one room in your house for every one month.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Linen Crate
The Cost: $75 plus $9.99 shipping
The Products: Linen goods for your home based on your style/color profile. You can choose to get delivery every 1, 2, or 3 months.
Good to know: The first Box you will receive features your Bathroom/Powder Room. The Box will be a Bathroom Box where you will receive 6-9 Linens and Accessories curated for your bathroom based on your color/style preferences.
This box didn’t come with an info sheet detailing each item, but did have a crate value card.
FYI – I created a style profile for this box to get a customized experience that would be the same as if I paid for it. (My style profile results are for a modern/contemporary box). At the time when I filled out the profile, they didn’t have a color preference option, but they now do.
The Deluxe Bath Mat
The Deluxe Washcloth
(I couldn’t find the exact prices for these online since they aren’t branded). If I had the color selection options when I signed up, I probably would have only picked whites and greys for linens, so this red definitely stands out in our linen closet! (My approach to towels is to just always buy white so you can never tell that they all don’t match from the same brand/collection!)
Our bathroom has a red accent wall though, so these actually match perfectly.
The Deluxe Bath Towel
The Deluxe Hand Towel
The quality of these towels is pretty good too.
Shower Curtain Liner and Shower Curtain
I like that Linen Crate sends you pretty much everything you need to give your bathroom a new look. This shower curtain isn’t my style though. And it doesn’t feel very modern/contemporary to me either. (I should mention that when I hear modern/contemporary, I think Dwell magazine, so maybe Linen Crate has a slightly different definition).
Back Scrubber, Loofa, and Bath Pouf
I wasn’t expecting to get bath accessories in this box, but it was a nice surprise! (And the colors kind of match the shower curtain).
Toilet Rug and Toilet Seat Cover:
OK, these two items definitely don’t feel modern/contemporary to me. (I seriously had a moment as I was unboxing where I was puzzled by what the toilet seat cover could be).
These also came with a matching bathroom rug:
(Sorry this picture is a little darker than it should be). The rugs and the towels aren’t the exact same shade of red, but I think with the shower curtain they tie in together.
Verdict: I really like the concept of Linen Crate. While I couldn’t find prices for these items, the cost breaks down to about $6.25 an item, so I’d just keep that number in mind when determining if this is a good value for you. I also like that you can select to get boxes every 1, 2 or 3 months – making over a room with linens every month might be too much after a while, so I think it was very smart of them to have this option.
Style wise, this box wasn’t a great match for me, but I’m wondering now that I can add color preferences if I can get a box that matches up with my tastes better in the future.
I also think it would be great for them to add more customization options in the future – for example, if you have a glass shower door, you could opt out of possibly getting shower curtains.
