For most of us, when it is time to organize things around the house, we go to our nearest outlet and purchase several storage containers. What if I told you there was an inexpensive yet chic way that you can organize everything from your bathroom toiletries to the stack of papers on the kitchen table? Baskets are a fantastic yet inexpensive way to organize every last room in the house. Here are some great ways it can be put to use:
- The Bathroom.
If your bathroom lacks adequate storage, you may want to opt for medium to large size baskets to store your extra towels and washcloths. Having a place to store clean bathroom linens is a must. For a sophisticated feel, you can roll up your towels like they do in hotels and align them around a wicker basket. You can also use a smaller basket to store bathroom toiletries. With a small basket on the sink countertop, you can place your hand soap, tissue, and any other necessities inside of a neat, concise place. Lastly, we recommend using extra baskets for the underneath of your bathroom counter. It will provide a clean and functional organizational system that is also stylish.
- The Living Room.
How can you use baskets for organization in the living room? Well, during the cold winter months, you will need a place to tuck away your throw pillows and extra blankets that you cozy up with on the couch. Keep these accessories close by for those nights when you decided to stay in and watch a movie. If you have a reading nook, a wire basket is great for storing some good reads that you are currently enjoying. So if you cannot invest in a bookshelf, you can save money with a basket.
- Fire Wood Holder.
Firewood storage is not inexpensive. That is when the handy-dandy wire basket comes into play. You can purchase a big basket to hold all of your firewood. It also keeps the firewood neat, and you will not have to worry about lugging wood from outside.
- Kitchen Cabinet.
If you find that storage is becoming limited in your kitchen cabinets, consider using baskets to create additional storage room for your dishes and other items.
- Home Office.
Smaller, flatter baskets can be used to organized paperwork and mail found inside of your home office. You can place the baskets on top of your desk for easy accessibility and organization.
We hope you enjoyed these fun ways that you can use baskets inside of your home.
