Trend Alert: Storage Baskets
Storage baskets have become hugely popular over the last couple of years – and rightly so! They are not only great for storing books, magazines and blankets, they also add texture and color to interior spaces. Whether you need extra accessible storage in your bathroom, living room or bedroom, storage baskets are ideal to incorporate into the design. We are seeing more and more creative ways of using baskets in the home. Let’s take a closer look!
Why we love it!
Storage baskets look fantastic in any interior space and add much needed texture to modern interiors especially. Instead of filling up all the storage cupboards throughout the house, why not add some storage baskets to key rooms? Storage baskets are available in many different shapes and sizes and some even have some added color added to them too so there is something for everyone!
How to use it…
There are many ways you can use storage baskets in your home… Almost every room in the home can benefit from a basket! They are fantastic for using throughout the home to keep clutter or misc. items out of sight.
Use storage baskets in your foyer, boot room or entrance area for storing hats, gloves, scarves or anything that would otherwise be unsightly if hung up. These baskets are great for putting underneath a bench or on an upper shelf.
Baskets are great for using in linen closets for keeping all the linens neatly organized. Take this one step further and label each basket!
You can place storage baskets near living room or family room furniture for storing blankets, kids toys, magazines and books. Use storage baskets in bedrooms for a similar use.
In bathrooms you can use storage baskets for keeping extra products in, extra towels and toilet paper in.
These storage baskets are great for using in the kitchen and pantry to keep food well organized. Add a label to them so you know what’s inside.
What to watch for…
There are a couple of considerations to take into account when thinking of using storage baskets in your home…
There are a number of different materials these baskets could be made from, and each has their own positives and negatives when it comes to longevity. Baskets made from straw, wicker, or seagrass are typically very durable and hard-wearing, making them ideal for storing heavy items.
There has been an increased interest in felt storage baskets that are available in a variety of colors and designs. These baskets are better suited to lighter items and are perfect for home offices and bedrooms.
As with any new interior item it is always worth considering the supplier from which you’re purchasing. If possible you should view the reviews for the item and view the product in-store.
Ways to make this trend last in your home…
Storage baskets can last many years in your home!
If you’re looking for storage baskets to become a permanent feature in your home, make sure to choose good quality baskets. If you’re unsure on the colored options, stick with the rustic and natural finish as this will go with every interior style! And if you’re looking for a fun storage basket for the kids’ rooms or playroom, choose baskets with fun colors on.
