Baskets are an excellent way of making storage fun. Plus, you can get really creative with the designs and variations of baskets you want to use around your home or office. They brighten up a room and can be used to add that natural feel to your décor. They are a good way to rid yourself of the mind drain that comes with wondering where or how to store all those extra items. When you need to put stuff together where they can be easily accessed without getting in the way, baskets are an easy pick.
Storage baskets are about the most practical storage items. More so in a room that doesn’t have storage cabinets, shelves, or wardrobes. Take your guest room, for instance. Baskets can be used to keep bed sheets and towels or tissue rolls. It gives a welcoming effect as the guest will feel like they are displayed just for them. Baskets are not limited to home usage. You can use them in the car too to store emergency supplies or reusable shopping baskets. When going for a picnic, baskets come in very handy, making it convenient to put all the items together and easy to transport from one point to another.
Baskets are perfect for storage for either home or office use. It leaves workspaces looking organised and orderly at all times. In the kitchen, for example, you can use a basket for your spices. When cooking, you don’t need to take out one by one, but instead, you only need to remove the spice basket, brew your stew, and back to the cabinet it goes. The organisational capability that baskets offer, especially in the kitchen, makes them convenient and time-saving. On your dressing table, a basket for your necklaces, bracelets, and earrings leaves the space looking organised.
Small items are prone to displacement pretty often. Trying to identify their whereabouts when we need them the most can be draining and time-consuming. Placing these items in a basket makes them easily accessible. For example, getting a basket for your socks means the pairs are always matched and in one place. It’s much easier to grab your socks from under your bed when you’re rushing out instead of shuffling through your clothes drawers looking for matching pairs.
Who said baskets could only be used for storage? Hand-picked, they make excellent wall art decorations and bring out the warmth of a room when placed strategically either at the entrance of a walkway or above the sofa. And since they can be made in any colour, you can select pieces that complement your existing furniture pieces.
Surprisingly baskets can be used for plants too; our way of bringing in the outside. It’s a technique of adding life and nature into our homes. Plants also add a level of clean air in any space. When using a wicker basket to house your plants, you will need to insert a plastic planter inside the basket for water catchment.
