September 22, 2020

When it comes to organization and storage, nothing meets your needs quite like a hand-woven wicker basket. Whether you’re in declutter mode, moving to a smaller space, or simply looking for a practical laundry basket, there are plenty of ways to ensure you’re choosing the perfect wicker baskets to meet all your needs. With a few careful considerations, we’ll have you selecting your baskets in no time at all. A few things to keep in mind as you search for the perfect wicker baskets:

  • Consider your space needs and limitations
  • What functions do you need your wicker baskets to serve?
  • Prioritize your wicker basket features

Consider Your Space Needs and Limitations

Each space is unique and requires evaluation when shopping for the perfect wicker baskets, from dorms and offices to mudrooms and walk-in closets. Start with a list of areas you are focusing on. Will you be organizing, storing, or only bringing a touch of functional beauty to your space? Do you need a laundry basket that can hide in plain sight due to lack of space? Do your office drawers require an overhaul with a little storage help? These are all questions worth asking yourself before diving headfirst into a sea of beautifully woven wicker baskets. While many baskets can serve multiple functions, it’s best to have a plan to meet each space's needs and limitations.

Can your small space accommodate wall shelving? Consider storing items in handy Long Narrow Pole Handle Wicker Basket. These beauties offer extra storage space while adding a beautiful touch to your décor. They make great office additions with various sizes and convenient cut-in handles for simple grab and go needs.

Does your closet or bathroom have little space to accommodate your needs? Laundry baskets come in plenty of shapes and sizes for any tight fit or out of the way needs. Wicker baskets provide intricate designs, stunning décor, and practical functionality.

Wicker Baskets with Functional Purpose

Evaluating your needs will help you narrow down exactly what you’re looking for in a wicker basket. Create a master checklist and go through each room or space. Do you need to file, conceal, declutter, or create additional space? Each wicker basket offers a multitude of functions that can suit your needs. Consider:

  • The Deep Kubu Wicker Storage Trunks allow you to store extra linens and pillows at your bed's foot. Or, use them as décor and a handy option for hidden storage in your living room. They work great to store games and toys in bedrooms, playrooms, and common areas you wish to keep tidy.

Prioritize the Wicker Basket Features You Need

Once you have your list of needs for each space, prioritize the features you’ll need to accommodate each area and function. Wicker baskets offer an array of fabulous features, including:

  • Carrying Convenience: Is your laundry basket sturdy, yet lightweight? Does it offer a pull-out laundry basket bag or easy to transport handles? If you’re tackling stairs or small trek to the machine, you'll undoubtedly want to boost carrying convenience to the top of your laundry basket needs.
  • Easy Access: Lidless wicker baskets and cut-out handles can be priceless when you have a lot to store. Whether in an office or pantry, you’ll be able to slide those wicker baskets in and out and grab exactly what you need.
  • Compartments: If your laundry basket or office organizer needs include compartments, there are plenty of wicker baskets that offer compartments to fit your needs. Quickly sort clothes in your compartmentalized laundry basket or separate bills and small supplies in a beautifully woven desktop organizer basket.
  • Liners: Another feature you may want to consider is a wicker basket liner. Liners can be a necessary feature for laundry baskets to prevent snagging or to offer comfortable carrying options. Liners also protect your wicker baskets from dust and dirt and provide an appealing addition to your décor.
