There’s no place like home—even if it is “home away from home.” Especially for the ultimate home away from home, your college dorm room. Though summer is barely half over, college prep is in full swing. This fall, make your dorm feel like a home by surrounding yourself with beautiful, functional wicker storage baskets from The Basket Lady collection.
Not only will wicker baskets help you get and stay organized throughout the year, but you’ll be the envy of all your friends, with a pad that’s truly gracious and comfy. In that spirit, here are our ten best wicker storage baskets for dorm or apartment organization.
Keep your dorm room tidy with this clever trash receptacle. The oversized hand-carved wooden handles aren’t just for decoration. They’re designed to catch—and hold—the loops of a plastic grocery sack. So those sacks you collect on the weekly snack run? Now, they can double as your trash bags.
Magazines may not be in your college budget, but we guarantee this semester you’ll have more than a few textbooks, workbooks, and even (dare we say it?) library books lying around your pad. This basket is perfect for stacking them all neatly when they’re not in use. Or, purchase several to divide your volumes by subject, class or due date.
This versatile basket fits those long narrow (odd) spaces often found in college dorm rooms. The difference? You can easily shut the lid on your clutter with this basket, and even stack other baskets on top. Consider filling with snacks and placing in your pantry, next to your futon, or on your tabletop.
We designed this box for storage on narrow bathroom shelves, but in reality, it’s versatile for almost any narrow space. Keep your table or countertop neat by place loose items inside. Place it on your desk and fill with office supplies. Or, place in your closet or under counters to help double your storage space.
Sharing valuable space with other dorm mates? Want to keep everyone’s things separate? We’ve got you covered with our Wicker Divided Organization Basket. Assign each individual one of the three generous sections they can fill with vitamins, toiletries, office supplies or other small items you want to keep separate easily from one another.
Having a bookshelf or cabinetry is one thing. Using it well is entirely another. In most dorm rooms, space is at a premium. So why not make the most of yours by organizing it with our Low Square Wicker Shelf Basket? In addition to staying tidy, you’ll save time by simply pulling out the basket you need to retrieve an item.
For larger items, our Covered Wicker Storage Basket is a great way to keep them close at hand but out of site. Plus, these baskets are easily portable. Slide them under a table or stack them in a set of three or five to create a nightstand. This basket is perfect for storing seasonal clothing, small sporting goods, books, or nonperishable foods.
Dorm room living requires you to make use of all available space. Reclaim—and reuse—the valuable real estate under your bed with our Underbed Wicker Storage Basket. Store anything you don’t need right now, or use it to organize all your textbooks and notebooks, if you don’t have room for a bookshelf.
No dorm room is complete without this classic desktop organizer that holds almost anything school-related. But its versatility doesn’t end there. Use it as a kitchen gadget organizer, or to stack your paper plates and plastic cutlery. You could also use it to organize all your laundry soap, quarters and dryer sheets.
Looking to increase seating in your dorm, so you can have friends over (I wouldn’t use this to sit on)? Or wish you could add a little tabletop in the corner? Combine hospitality with storage in this sturdy, wood-framed wicker storage trunk with luxurious leather latch. You’ll be surprised how much you can get inside. And how much you can do with all that extra surface area on top.
College is just around the corner, and there’s so much to do! Don’t miss out on a wonderful opportunity to create your own “home away from home” this fall. Let The Basket Lady help you define your style by decorating and organizing with our versatile wicker storage baskets.
