9 Deluxe Storage Baskets to Make Storage a Work of Art

0

Storage baskets are a simple way to help declutter your space, while accentuating the design of your room. Whether you need a helping hand with organizing your living room, bedroom, or bathroom, these storage baskets can elevate your space instantly and neatly tuck away anything you’d rather leave out of sight.

Getting the proportions of a storage basket right is essential. Assess exactly what you’d like to store, then determine if you need a larger or smaller basket, or maybe even a set. It will also be interesting to consider whether you prefer your basket to have a lid, to banish your knick-knacks as much as possible, or whether you prefer an open top so that you can add items as you go.

A smart and sturdy storage basket is the first thing you should consider when thinking of storage ideas for your home, and you should find luxury options below to hold anything, from shoes to throws, children’s toys and more. You can also use a magazine rack to store your latest Homes & Gardens issue elegantly – and on display.

We’re in love with its quirky design, and that, coupled with its sturdy construction, makes it hard not to add this set to our shopping carts. They come in pairs, one smaller than the other, and they can be used to carry or hide just about anything inside your home.
