Is “laundry” a cringe-worthy word for you? You’re not alone. Laundry is definitely one of the least favorite chores. But since the average American family does 8-10 loads per week, we figure that it’s best to embrace laundry since it’s one of those mandatory things that we have to do. However, with beautiful wicker baskets to help make your laundry room more organized and pleasant, we think you may start to embrace the wash, dry, fold routine, too. Here are our top picks to keep your laundry room a clutter-free happy place.
Clothes have a tendency to pile up and create chaotic clutter if they’re left untended to for too long (we know from experience!). But with a few large baskets or hampers, you’ll instantly have a stylish space to store dirty threads.
Oval Wicker Laundry Basket: Big and roomy to fit plenty of clothes, this classic oval basket is a catch-all that features sturdy handles for carrying ease. It comes in a convenient size so it fits in most locations around your house, and it’s a great choice for carrying clean clothes to the closet. Available in two different colors, this versatile basket will look great wherever it sits. Bonus: it comes with a removable liner to protect clothes from snags.
Kubu Wicker French Laundry Basket: A recent review of this item says it all: “My new laundry basket is classy, functional, sturdy and pretty!” Indeed, this hand-woven basket blends beauty and functionality into a perfect mix for keeping clothes neat and organized. Sturdy side handles ensure ease of carrying, while its availability in two colors makes for a stylish and versatile home accent. The tapered shape also allows for multiple to be nested together.
3-Compartment Wicker Laundry Hamper: One of the simplest ways to keep clothes organized is to sort them by color as you shed them. This three-compartment hamper makes it easy and convenient to do so. This lidded hamper features furniture-quality poles and a wooden bottom to ensure it can withstand bulky piles of clothes (a full load of laundry up to 1.66 cubic feet can fit in each compartment!).
Round Wicker Laundry Hamper: An elegant lidded hamper that looks like those seen at the spa, this hamper will work perfectly in a modern home. Available in two different sizes, this is an ideal basket for bedding and bath (although, it would work great for clothes, too!). The lid offers a leather handle for ease of removal, and it’s fitted with a liner for easy cleaning.
